Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are heading to New York.

Per an official press release, both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will appear in person at this Saturday's Global Citizen Live event, a 24-hour, performance-packed broadcast that aims to raise funds and awareness for vaccine equity across the globe.

The royal couple will appear on the Great Lawn in Central Park—among many other world leaders—to encourage the world's leading nations to work to bring an end to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Global Citizen Live campaign is also calling on G-7 countries, as well as the European Union, to immediately distribute one billion COVID-19 vaccines to the countries who need them most.

The Sussexes will be joined by other famous faces during Saturday's event, including Jennifer Lopez, Doja Cat, Lizzo, Billie Eilish, and Camila Cabello.

The couple's Central Park appearance won't be the first time the pair have advocated for vaccine equity.

Prince Harry appeared in person (and Meghan, virtually due to her pregnancy) during Global Citizen's VAX LIVE: The Concert to Reunite the World in May.

Also, to celebrate their son Archie's second birthday earlier this year, the pair led a global fundraising effort to support Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance, which works to get vaccines to those in low-income countries who need them most. The fundraiser, which had donations matched by Mastercard Impact Fund, as well as the Seadream Family Foundation, raised £2.5 million ($3.5 million).
