The Duke and Duchess of Sussex delighted fans this week when they released a special episode of Archewell Audio on Spotify.

The holiday special features a plethora of famous guests, including Stacey Abrams, Brené Brown, Elton John, Deepak Chopra, Naomi Osaka, James Corden, and Tyler Perry. But perhaps the most important guest of all is Meghan and Prince Harry's young son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor.

Towards the end of the episode, Harry can be heard saying to Archie, presumably gesturing towards the microphone: "You can speak into it."

Meghan can then be heard asking: "Archie, is it fun?" Rather adorably, Archie then copies his mum by repeating the word fun.

Harry then leads Archie in saying, "Happy New Year," to all of Archewell Audio's listeners. "After me. Ready? Happy," Harry says to his son, who then says, on cue: "Happy."

Meghan and Harry continue by saying, "New," to which Archie says, "New … Year," completing the phrase all on his own.

Understandably, Meghan and Harry sounded extremely proud of their son, with Harry even excitedly exclaiming: "Boom!"

Take a listen for yourself: Archie's podcast debut take place at about the 32-minute mark and can be heard below.


Discussing why they wanted to record the episode, Harry revealed: "As we come to the end of this year, and look to the future … let's hold onto the lessons we've learned about how important it is to take care of one another and how meaningful our connections are, even when they're physically impossible."

Meghan added: "We thought, What if we can bring together some people that inspire us—people that we admire—and get their thoughts on what they learned from 2020."

The 35-minute one-off special also includes conversations with novelist Matt Haig, teen activist Christina Adane, celebrity chef José Andrés, anti-racism author Rachel Cargle, and British poets Hussain Manawer and George the Poet.

The royal couple sent out their condolences to those who have lost loved ones to COVID-19, and expressed their immense gratitude to those on the front lines of the pandemic.
