The Sussexes

Archie’s voice heard for first time in Sussex podcast

The voice of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s son, Archie has been heard for the first time. The one and a half-year-old can be heard on his parents’ podcast saying, “Happy New Year.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released their first podcast, a holiday special looking back at 2020, yesterday on Spotify through their Archewell Audio production company. The couple spoke about this past year and used the podcast as a tribute to the “uncertainty and unthinkable loss” that 2020 has brought so many. They also made sure to express their thanks to “healthcare workers, frontline service workers and so many others for their sacrifices.”

They had numerous guests on their 34-minute programme including Sir Elton John, James Corden, Stacey Abrams, and Deepak Chopra, among others. The guests shared their thoughts on 2020 during their excerpts.

Harry and Meghan concluded their first podcast with a tribute to their wedding with the song “This Little Light of Mine” which they hoped would be a “shining light.”

“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,” Harry said before the song played.

After the song concluded, Harry can be heard telling Archie to speak into the microphone. Meghan asks Archie if it is fun to which little Archie repeats, “Fun.”

The Duke and Duchess then have him repeat after them to say, “Happy New Year.”

Archie will turn two in May.
