It's been a busy month for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry (who, in case you were wondering, despite officially confirming they'll never return to working royal life, are still very much the Duke and Duchess of Sussex). The couple announced that they're expecting their second child, making Archie a big brother, and confirmed they'll be taking part in a sit-down interview with Oprah Winfrey next month.
Now, the pair have made their first appearance (virtually of course, this is 2021 after all) since sharing their pregnancy news – and we have to say, they're both glowing. Sitting on a sofa in their Montecito home, the Duke and Duchess took a moment to share what their motivations were for signing a deal with Spotify enabling them to create their own podcast, Archewell Audio (named after both their son and charitable foundation).
"We're using podcasting to inspire powerful conversations," says Meghan, to kick things off. Harry then jumps in with, "To inspire, challenge and educate."

Meghan then continues on to say, "We created Archewell Audio to make sure that we can elevate voices that maybe aren't being heard and hear people's stories." Harry then adds, "And the biggest part of this is trying to create this communit, where you can share and then encourage everybody else to share their own vulnerabilities within that safe space."

Posting a clip on Twitter, royal expert Omid Scobie (who co-authored a book, Finding Freedom, about Meghan and Harry's relationship and subsequent departure from life as working royals), said, "Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan were one of the many guests (alongside Justin Bieber, J Balvin, Brené Brown and Blackpink) to feature during today’s @Spotify #SpotifyStreamOn event, when they gave a glimpse at their forthcoming Archewell Audio content."
It's not clear exactly when the footage was shot – whether it was before or after the Baby Sussex 2.0 announcement was made – but the dress that Meghan is wearing is from the Oscar de la Renta maternity range, meaning it was likely fairly recent (she's already sporting a bump after all!).
It's great to see the couple looking so relaxed – we can't wait to see what's next. 😍
