Prince Harry will be in New York on Monday to deliver a keynote address at a UN
General Assembly meeting for Nelson Mandela Day.
The event begins at 10am EST, with the Duke delivering his remarks around 10:30am.
Harry's supporters see his presence at the event as a sign of his rise on the global
stage in contrast to claims in the British tabloids that he would lose importance after stepping down from his royal duties
According to a statement, the General Assembly will hold an informal meeting to
mark the observance of "Nelson Mandela International Day", during which the
2020 UN Nelson Mandela Prize will be awarded to Mrs. Marianna V. Vardinoyannis
of Greece and Dr. Morissanda Kouyaté of Guinea. The Deputy Secretary-General
and the President of the General Assembly will deliver remarks at this event.
