  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a Spotify podcast in the works!

  • The podcast will be produced under Archewell Audio (their new audio production company) and is set to debut in 2021.

2020 may have royally sucked, but there is one final thing we can actually look forward to this year — and beyond! — thanks to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. In the best royal news of the week, Harry and Meghan are confirmed to be getting their own podcast on Spotify that's set to be produced under Archewell Audio, their new audio production company ... which is named after their corresponding Archewell Foundation that their son Archie Harrison inspired.

Meghan and Harry shared why they were inspired to break into the podcasting space in a press release to Cosmo from Spotify. "What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction. With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do so, because when we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are," they said in a joint statement.

What can fans expect from Archewell Audio? According to Spotify, uplifting content that serves as a continuation of Meghan and Harry's general mission statement, which is to build a community across the world by connecting people though shared narratives, experiences, and values.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may live in California but the power of their voices rests in their status as citizens of the world. That they are embracing the extraordinary capacity of podcasts on Spotify while also seeking to elevate underrepresented voices is a testament to their appreciation for the potential of audio storytelling," Spotify Chief Content and Advertising Business Officer, Dawn Ostroff, said in the press release.

Archewell Audio is set to debut sometime in 2021, but the good news is fans can expect an upcoming holiday special later this month with some exclusive guests.
