Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's First Podcast Has a Very Special Guest
A very special guest appeared on the first episode of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's podcast: their son, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor.
The royal duo dropped the first episode of their podcast Archewell Audio at the start of this year with much fanfare, featuring the likes of Stacey Abrams, Tyler Perry, activist Rachel Cargle, Elton John, and more throughout the episode.
Darkness cannot drive out darkness — only light can do that.
Despite the many star-studded soundbites, it was baby Archie who stole the show at the episode’s conclusion. Markle shared an anecdote from her wedding, divulging to listeners that, " 'This Little Light of Mine' played at the very end of our wedding while we were walking down the steps of the church."
"It was the music that we wanted playing when we started our lives together," she shared. "Because as we all know, darkness cannot drive out darkness — only light can do that."
Harry then added: "The message of this song is one we hold so dearly. It's about using the power we each have within us to make this world a better place." As the music played in the episode, the couple thanks everyone for listening and one can hear Harry telling 1-and-a-half-year-old Archie: “You can speak into it,” in reference to the microphone.
“Archie, is it fun?” says Markle, which Archie then says back: “Fun.”
In an adorable moment you must listen to, Harry then asks Archie to repeat after him while they say “Happy New Year!” and giggle together.
The duke and duchess announced they’d be partnering with Spotify in December 2020 in an effort to “take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction,” they said in a joint statement.
“With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so,” they said. “Because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.”
