Meghan replies: “No, say it because I think it sounds really nice with your accent.”

After introducing Archewell Audio, Meghan says: “One of the things my husband and I have always talked about is our passion for meeting people and hearing their stories.

What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new podcast be about?

“And no matter what the story, they usually offer you an understanding of where someone else is coming from and at the same time remind you in some way of a story about yourself.”

Harry adds: “And that’s what this project is all about.

“To bring forward different perspectives and voices that perhaps you haven’t heard before and find our common ground.

“When that happens, change really is possible.”

“When we hear each other, and hear each other’s stories, we are reminded of how interconnected we all are.”

What did royal fans say?

Fans were divided over the couple’s new project on Twitter as one wrote: “For two people who wanted privacy, they sure are in the news a lot.”

Another added: “Seriously… who gives a crap?!?”

However, a third said: “I think my blood pressure can’t take this much excitement in two days.”

Another gushed: “So stoked and excited for what’s to come. Way to go, Harry & Meghan.”
