Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have released the first episode of their highly-anticipated podcast series from Archewell Audio. In the episode, titled ‘2020 Archewell Audio Holiday Special,’ Meghan and Harry got their one-year-old son Archie to say his first four words in public. Meghan also appears to nod to the furore and controversy that has surrounded the couple since their decision to leave their frontline royal roles in January.
Meghan told listeners: “From us I’ll say no matter what life throws at you guys, trust us when we say, love wins.”
The line appears to be a reference to the backlash the couple have suffered since the so-called ‘Megxit’ arrangement.
The couple had endured a stormy year after stepping back from their roles as senior working royals in January.
They have since moved to Los Angeles with their son, as relations allegedly soured between Harry and his brother Prince William.

Harry and Meghan recruited some of their famous friends to appear as part of the 33-minute long podcast episode.
The celebrities featured on the Archewell Audio episode included Sir Elton John, Deepak Chopra, Stacey Abrams, Tyler Perry and James Corden, who all reflected on 2020 and their hopes for 2021.
This comes after the couple struck a deal understood to be worth £30 million with Spotify.
The pair also struck a “mega-watt” deal with Netflix, which is estimated to earn the Sussexes more than £100 million.
Meghan added: “And at the same time, to honour those who have experienced uncertainty and unthinkable loss.
“Our thoughts have been with you, especially during this holiday season.”
During the episode, Meghan quoted civil rights icon Martin Luther King as she said: “Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.”
Earlier this week, it emerged that Harry and Meghan “want a 12-month extension to the Megxit deal that would see them keep their royal patronages beyond March 31 deadline”.
Prince Harry reportedly wants to return to the UK to attend both the Queen and Prince Philip’s birthdays next year.
