Meghan Markle , 39, and Prince Harry ‘s, 36, wish to leave royal life behind was in part due to their desire to give their son Archie Harrison a “more peaceful life”. Since Archie’s birth on May 6, 2019, Meghan and Harry have gone to great lengths to protect their son’s privacy and opted for an illustration as opposed to a photograph of themselves with Archie for this year’s Sussex family Christmas card.
Earlier this month it was revealed the couple had signed a lucrative deal with Spotify to produce a podcast for the streaming platform.
The first episode of Archewell, which is hosted by Meghan and Harry was released on Spotify on Tuesday afternoon and featured their son Archie speaking at the end.
Archie wished listeners a “Happy New Year” as the episode came to a close and some fans have struck out at the protective parents for including their son in the recording.
Reacting to the new episode on Twitter, one enraged fan wrote: “For two people who wanted privacy, I find it strange if they are now parading Archie too.
“Perhaps their idea of privacy is different from mine!”

Another fan reflected on how Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge and Prince William were recently attacked by Sussex fans on social media after they took their children to an event.
The Cambridge fan wrote: “He sounds So cute and lovely but I wonder what the Sussex squad will say they always put down the Cambridge’s and accuse them of using their children for publicity (even though they do it to support the country not themselves ), but I bet they will not say that here [sic].”
One cynic claimed Meghan and Harry could become “billionaires” from including Archie in their podcast episodes.

They wrote: “Of course he ‘steals the show’ that's why he is there, to make mommy and daddy millionaire and famous lmao [sic].”
A third Twitter user accused Meghan and Harry of copying royal relatives Mike and Zara Tindall who have also included their children in podcasts in the past.
They wrote: “Yea, and added Archie to copy the Tindalls last week. Remember 'The Persuaders'… well these two are 'The Plagerisers [sic]'.”
While others praised Meghan and Harry for gaining financial independence from the Royal Family and forging their own path.

One wrote: “It's good they are in control and get to decide when and how and what they want to share also read their manifesto when they stepped down-THEY decide.”
Another gushed: “Mommy and daddy already signed their deal and their podcast has been trending number one for over a week.
“King Archie is just there for the fun ride. Love won.”
The first episode of Archwell is titled “2020 Archewell Audio Holiday Special” and features a host of famous names including pop royalty Sir Elton John and author Matt Haig.

A description of the episode on Spotify reads: “As we come to the end of the year, Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex, present a special collection of inspiration, reflection, and perspective from guests around the world, including Stacey Abrams, Christina Adane, José Andrés, Brené Brown, Rachel Cargle, Deepak Chopra, James Corden, Matt Haig, Sir Elton John, Hussain Manawer, Naomi Osaka, Tyler Perry, and George the Poet (plus a surprise or two).
“Curated throughout the month of December, join them as they reflect on the year, speak openly about the power of compassion, and toast to a hopeful 2021.”
Archie has not been back to the UK since November 2019 when he left for Canada with his parents.
Archie remained behind in North America in the care of friends and nannies as Meghan and Harry returned to the UK to wrap up royal duties last year.
The Sussexes could return to Britain next spring to celebrate Prince Philip’s 100th birthday on June 10.
They have kept hold of their Windsor home Frogmore Cottage and recently paid back the £2.4 million British taxpayers’ money spent on renovating it.
