Prince Harry and wife Markle joined Spotify earlier this month with an agreement to produce and host podcast episodes on the platform.

“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 earlier in December upon launching "Archewell Audio."
