The Royal Family Just Caught a Palace Thief & What They Stole Is So Disturbing

Louisa Ballhaus
Tue, December 1, 2020, 7:29 PM GMT+3

Well, file this under news we didn’t expect to hear about the royal family. Between November 2019 and August 2020, a Buckingham Palace staffer named Adam Canto was repeatedly stealing from the royal family items like medals and family photos, some of which he then resold on the internet, where his wares (37 items at the time of discovery) have been valued at up to $130,000 by prosecutor Simon Maughan, per BBC. Canto pled guilty to three counts of theft and is facing possible jail time — and the details of what the thought to take are bumming us out even more than the theft itself.

All in all, it doesn’t sound like Canto was following a particularly well thought-out plan with his robberies, with prosecutor Maughan attesting that he sold many items at “well under” their value online, and the areas he robbed ranging from the palace shop (from which he took at least 77 items), staff lockers, the Queen’s Gallery shop, and Prince Andrew’s storeroom.

As for what he took: a $2,000 photo album of Donald Trump’s visit to the UK, signed photos of Prince Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton (though not, to our knowledge, Meghan Markle), and a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order medal that had been gifted to a WWII veteran by the Queen.

As a royal staffer, Canto lived at Buckingham Palace in the Royal Mews, where many of the stolen goods were found. His crime was reportedly made possible by a change in his role due to COVID-19, which gave him greater access to certain areas of the palace. And while we’re glad he was apprehended now, his crime is a chilling reminder of how far people will go to invade the royal family’s privacy — and likely a sign to Meghan and Harry that they were right to step away.

The Queen is mourning the loss of one of her beloved dorgis which recently died at Windsor Castle leaving her with just one remaining dog.

Vulcan, a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and dachshund mix, is expected to be buried at Windsor. The dog’s death leaves the Queen with just one pet, Candy, also a dorgi.

A palace source told The Sun: “Clearly the loss of a loved pet is upsetting.

“Anyone who has owned a dog knows how sad it is to lose them,” they added.

In 2018 the 94-year-old monarch appeared on the cover of Vanity Fair, photographed by Annie Leibovitz, with the two dorgis and two of her corgis Holly and Willow which have both since died.

She also famously featured with her dogs in a promotional video alongside Daniel Craig’s James Bond aired during the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games.

In April 2018 Willow was put down after a cancer-like illness. Whisper died six months later.

The Queen reportedly decided to cease breeding dogs in 2018  because she did not want to leave any behind after her death.

The monarch has owned 30 dogs, all of which have descended from mother Susan, the corgi which was given to her as an 18th birthday present.

Buckingham Palace did not comment.

News of Vulcan’s death comes  just weeks after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed their cocker spaniel had died.

The dog had been at the “heart” of their family for nine years, the couple said, adding: “We will miss him so much”.

Reports suggest Lupo had a role in naming the future King as the Cambridges had written a number of names on scraps of paper and invited Lupo to wander among them, eventually landing on George.




For Kate Middleton and Prince William, the holiday season is over
—and yet the Cambridges aren't returning to Kensington Palace. England has just entered another lockdown amid a rapid rise in COVID-19 cases, and Kate and William have decided to remain at their Norfolk home, Anmer Hall, where they celebrated Christmas. According to the Mirror, the Cambridges have already resumed the homeschooling of their three children, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis, as they did for a significant portion of 2020.

Kate and William will work from Anmer Hall, with the wider royal family aiming to support charities and businesses throughout England's third national lockdown. "The family is committed to working together to help the country through the next stage of the crisis," a royal source told the Mirror. "Plans are already in place to reach out to a range of charities and businesses and fortunately they are well versed in the world of video calls now."

George and Charlotte didn't return to school at Thomas's Battersea this week, despite other children across England initially doing so. Before the government announced Monday that all schools would be closed nationwide, London's primary schools were instructed not to reopen after the holidays. Now, students across the country are unlikely to return to school until at least February, as the BBC reports.

Louis' entry into formal education is also likely to have been delayed by England's school closures: As Hello! reports, the youngest Cambridge was predicted to begin nursery (preschool) this month, following the leads of George and Charlotte who started nursery in January 2016 and 2018 respectively. While nursery schools have not been closed in England, Kate and William have yet to announce Louis' enrollment, and with the Cambridges remaining in Anmer Hall, it seems unlikely he'll start any time soon.



Meghan Markle Can No Longer Apply for U.K. Citizenship

Meghan Markle Can No Longer Apply for U.K. Citizenship

From Marie Claire

After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced their plans to exit their official royal roles, some people tracking the story wondered if this move might affect Meghan's application for U.K. citizenship.

At the time of Harry and Meghan's wedding in the spring of 2018, a spokesperson for the duchess told CNN that Meghan was planning on becoming a dual citizen of the U.K. and the U.S. and that it was "too early to say" if she would retain that dual status. But now, The Telegraph reports that Meghan has "abandoned plans" to become a U.K. citizen.

Per the gov.uk website, Meghan would have had to live in the U.K. for a minimum of three years in order to apply for citizenship as a spouse or civil partner (in her case, spouse). As Us Weekly pointed out, Meghan moved out of the U.K. last year, before she reached the three-year mark. She moved to the U.K. in November 2017, so she would have had to have lived there until at least fall 2020.

Harry and Meghan now live in Montecito, California, where they have a new home with their son, Archie, who turns 2 years old in May.

A source close to the couple told Entertainment Tonight that Meghan and Harry have "no regrets" about their decision to move away from royal life. "[They] feel very rewarded from their work," the source added, referring to the couple's new foundation, Archewell.

"Despite everything that has been going on this year, they don't regret their move to the U.S.," a source told People. "They love that they are able to focus on projects and causes that are important to them." A source close to the prince also revealed: "It was always their dream to be financially independent and pay their own way. [2020] started out with a lot of excitement and anticipation. Harry was finally doing what he'd wanted to do for years, and to have Meghan and [20-month-old son] Archie with him was all he could have asked for."



The Royal Family Celebrates Kate Middleton's 39th Birthday


January 9 marked an important occasion in the royal family, as the Duchess of Cambridge celebrates her 39th birthday.

In honor of Kate Middleton's special day, members of the royal family paid tribute to the duchess. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's official Instagram account shared the sweet message, "Wishing The Duchess of Cambridge a very happy birthday today! 🎂."

Prince Charles and Duchess Camilla also celebrated Duchess Kate's birthday in an Instagram post. "Happy Birthday to The Duchess of Cambridge! 🎊," the Clarence House Instagram account wrote.

At least 7 notable companies are planning to cut ties with Trump's businesses

Following the deadly pro-Trump riot in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 6, a host of companies have announced plans to stop political giving, with some targeting the Republican members of Congress specifically and others suspending political contributions altogether.

Meanwhile, President Trump himself has remained defiant, falsely telling reporters Tuesday that his speech last week, which helped incite violence that led to 5 deaths, had been deemed “totally appropriate.”

But a few companies with direct relationships to Trump’s company, the Trump Organization, and his campaign have also acted, exposing an additional point of leverage that, like the permanent suspension of the @realDonaldTrump Twitter handle, will continue to impact him personally long after he leaves office.

The Trump Organization had already been facing financial headwinds this year stemming from the president’s conduct and coronavirus restrictions, but the actions in the past week have been at a larger scale than anything seen before.

Zach Everson runs the website 1100pennsylvania.com (the address of the president’s Washington, D.C., hotel) and chronicles his personal business dealings closely.

These businesses had plenty of opportunities to cut ties with Trump over the last four years, but “it wasn't until this week that the math, I guess, changed for those groups and they realized it would just be better to cut him loose,” said Everson.
Hitting Trump’s pocketbook

In perhaps the most significant move, Deutsche Bank (DB) will cease doing new business with Donald Trump or his companies, according to a New York Times report. The multinational bank with headquarters in New York has long been a key Trump ally, helping him finance his business for decades.

Deutsche Bank, which has been called “Trump’s bank,” has been the subject of subpoenas by New York prosecutors, and has been been itching to distance itself from Trump. The violence in D.C. last week – and Trump’s involvement in it – appears to have been the last straw.

It won’t be quite so easy though as Trump still owes the Deutsche Bank more than $300 million, coming due in the next few years. The Times reports that Signature Bank (SBNY) is also cutting ties with the soon-to-be former president.

The Professional Golf Association, another longtime Trump ally, has cut ties. One of golf’s four major tournaments had been scheduled for the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, in New Jersey, in 2022.

But not anymore.

“It has become clear that conducting the P.G.A. Championship at Trump Bedminster would be detrimental to the P.G.A. of America brand,” said Jim Richerson, the P.G.A. of America president in announcing its decision to terminate the contract.

A worldwide governing body for golf, the R&A, also announced it “had no plans to stage any of our championships at [Trump’s course in] Turnberry [Scotland] and will not do so in the foreseeable future.” That move takes the British Open away from Trump for now. His course is among a group of 10 courses where the prestigious tournament rotates; the event was last held there in 2009, before Trump bought the course.



Queen Elizabeth's Grandnephew Arthur Chatto Is the Royal Heartthrob We Need Right Now

With Prince Harry and Prince William off the market, we've been on the lookout for another royal hunk to lust after.

After reviewing several worthy candidates, we think we've found our man: Queen Elizabeth's grandnephew Arthur Chatto. Age: 21. Zodiac sign: Aquarius. Profession: Athlete. World Records: Two. Check, check, check, check!!

The Internet is already obsessed with the personal trainer and his oh-so-inspiring workout videos, if you know what we mean.

His grandmother is none other than Princess Margaret, Elizabeth's sister, who we all know as Helena Bonham Carter on The Crown. Arthur's parents are Lady Sarah Chatto and Daniel Chatto, making him 26th in line to the British throne. Basically, that means he has the family connections without the likelihood of actual responsibility, ya feel?

Arthur's Instagram bio lists his World Record titles as the youngest team and youngest person to row around Great Britain.

And, like the good samaritan he is, Arthur and his rowing group Exe Endurow have been trying to fundraise 150,000 pounds in support of the British Red Cross as the frontline workers fight the COVID-19 pandemic. They're also raising money for Just One Ocean to remove plastic from the waters around the U.K. Charming, right?

How Meghan Markle Forever Changed the Royals

In December, the royal relative shared his crew's progress on Instagram, writing, "It was an epic but gruelling 42 days rowing around Britain as a team of four students."

“Where can we find light in this never-ending shade?” America’s 22-year-old youth poet laureate Amanda Gorman asked today as she spoke at the inauguration of the 46th president of the United States: Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.
For the past four years we have lived under an administration that advanced policies based on bullying; a fantasy of a lost, white, Christian America; and disinformation. We have endured the gutting of our government as the president either left positions empty or replaced career officials with political operatives, corruption, the rise of white supremacists into positions of power, the destruction of our international standing, an unchecked pandemic that has led to more than 400,000 deaths from Covid-19, an economic crash, and unprecedented political polarization.
“And yet the dawn is ours before we knew it,” Gorman reminded us.

That light was us.
In these terrible years, our politicians often failed us… but the American people did not. Our national guardrails often failed us… but the American people did not. Many of our neighbors often failed us, but the American people did not.
Beginning on January 21, 2017, when women marched on Washington in the largest single-day protest in American history and dwarfed the new president’s inauguration numbers of the previous day, more and more of us worked together to keep the dream of American democracy alive. Last November, more than 81 million of us braved the coronavirus pandemic and voter suppression to reject a divisive president who seemed bent on turning our nation into an oligarchy. By more than 7 million votes, we elected Democrats Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to take the highest offices in the land.

Today, President Biden and Vice President Harris took their oaths of office in a ceremony that was sparsely attended because of the pandemic, in a city that was locked down out of concerns of violence from those who tried just two weeks ago to overturn the election.
Trouble, either in Washington, D.C., or in state capitals across the nation, did not materialize. Over the past two weeks, law enforcement officers have tracked down and arrested the people who stormed the Capitol on January 6, and the realization that committing federal crimes brings consequences might have taken some of the wind out of rioters’ sails. Today, one of the riot’s organizers, Joseph Biggs of the far-right Proud Boys, was arrested in Florida. For their part, the Proud Boys have turned on the former president, calling him “extraordinarily weak” for leaving office, and “a total failure.”
Kamala Harris took the oath first today, becoming the first woman, the first Black person, and the first person of South Asian heritage to become a vice president. She was dressed in purple in honor of Shirley Chisholm, the seven-term New York Representative who was the first Black woman elected to the United States Congress and who ran for president in 1972. Chisholm used the colors purple and yellow in her campaign, and Harris picked them up for her own presidential bid.

Biden came next.
After taking the oath, Biden delivered an inaugural address that was not simply the call for unity that he has been making for the past year. It was a call for Americans to come together to rebuild America, one that echoed that of President John F. Kennedy in 1961, when he told us: “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
Biden recalled the Civil War, the Great Depression, the World Wars, and the attacks of 9/11, noting that “[i]n each of these moments, enough of us came together to carry all of us forward.” He urged today’s Americans to do the same in what he called “a time of testing” that brings together great crises: “an attack on our democracy and on truth. A raging virus, growing inequity, the sting of systemic racism, a climate in crisis.”

“Are we going to step up, all of us?” he asked. “It’s time for boldness, for there is so much to do. And this is certain. I promise you, we will be judged, you and I, by how we resolve these cascading crises of our era…. Will we master this rare and difficult hour?”
If we do, he said, “we shall write an American story of hope, not fear. Of unity, not division. Of light, not darkness. An American story of decency and dignity. Of love and of healing. Of greatness and of goodness…. The story that tells ages yet to come that we answered the call of history. We met the moment. That democracy and hope, truth and justice, did not die on our watch but thrived.”

After the ceremony, the new president and vice president and their spouses visited the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, and then Biden headed to the Oval Office. "I thought there's no time to wait. Get to work immediately," he said.
Biden began the process of signing more than a dozen executive actions, most of which either take us back to where we were four years ago or address the coronavirus pandemic. The executive orders will enable the United States to rejoin the World Health Organization and the Paris Climate Accords, and revoke new oil and gas development at national wildlife monuments. They reverse Trump’s own order not to count undocumented immigrants in the census, and call for a path to citizenship for the “Dreamers,” about a million undocumented immigrants brought here as children. Biden ended the travel ban that restricted travel from Muslim-dominated countries, one of his predecessor’s signature issues. He also stopped border wall construction.

Biden established a mask mandate on federal property and by federal employees, and reorganized government coordination on the coronavirus response. He revoked his predecessor’s limits on diversity and inclusion training and took down the partisan 1776 Report that attacked progressives and whitewashed our history that was issued just two days ago.

Tonight, Press Secretary Jen Psaki held her first press briefing. She began by saying: "I have deep respect for the role of a free and independent press in our democracy and for the role all of you play," then went on to answer questions. She will hold another press conference tomorrow, saying that Biden wants to bring truth and transparency back.

“Somehow we’ve weathered and witnessed a nation that isn’t broken, but simply unfinished,” Amanda Gorman said today. And then, she concluded her inaugural poem with a reminder of the lesson that many of us have learned over the last four years: “[T]here is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it.”



Prince Harry Made a Surprise 'Appearance' on President Joe Biden's Inauguration Day

Prince Harry may live in California, but he still made a cameo (of sorts!) on President Joe Biden's inauguration day in Virginia.

After Biden's swearing-in ceremony in Washington, D.C., he headed to Arlington National Cemetery to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. Jon Davidson, a staff member of Bill Clinton's, shared a snap on Twitter of the former president with his hand on Biden's shoulder and the other arm around wife Hillary Clinton --Â and in the background of the shot was none other than a large photo of Prince Harry!

The image of the Duke of Sussex is from his 2013 visit to the United States, which included a visit to Arlington National Cemetery. Dressed in his British Army uniform, he took part in a wreath laying ceremony, put flowers at the memorial to President John F. Kennedy and walked among the gravestones.

In a handwritten note, Harry said, "To my comrades-in-arms of the United States of America, who have paid the ultimate sacrifice in the cause of freedom." He signed the message, "Captain Harry Wales," the title and name he used during his military service.

The Real Reason Meghan Markle’s Name Is No Longer on Archie’s Birth Certificate

Meghan Markle and her team are speaking out about a recent story that claimed she had her name removed from Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor's birth certificate. Allow us to explain.

Over the weekend, The Sun reported that the Duchess of Sussex, in an “unprecedented move,” had her first and middle names, Rachel Meghan, removed from the birth certificate. This means that under the mother section of the document, all that remains is her official title: “Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Sussex.”

However, it wasn’t long before the 39-year-old’s team got wind of the report and quickly made some clarifications regarding the decision.

“The change of name on public documents in 2019 was dictated by The Palace, as confirmed by documents from senior Palace officials,” a spokesperson revealed in a statement posted on Twitter. “This was not requested by Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex nor by The Duke of Sussex.” The note also went on to accuse publications of click-baiting and not focusing on the important things taking place in the world right now. Ouch.

We first got a look at Archie’s birth certificate one week after he was born back in May of 2018. It confirmed that Markle was taken to The Portland in London, a private maternity-only hospital near Regent's Park. She gave birth to her son at 5:26 a.m. on May 6. The private women's-only hospital, which reportedly costs upward of £15,000 (nearly $20,000) for a delivery, is the same place where both Princess Beatrice and Eugenie were born. The duchess was originally listed with her full name as Rachel Meghan Markle on the birth certificate, with the title of Princess of the United Kingdom.

We wonder what other changes were made at the Royal Family’s request.



Republicans Unswayed By Evidence Trump 'Incited' Mob Against U.S. Capitol

WASHINGTON ― Despite Democratic impeachment managers laying out a methodical case on Wednesday, Senate Republicans seem intent as ever on acquitting Donald Trump over his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

House Democrats spent hours Wednesday showing how Trump, in their words, summoned, assembled and incited the mob to storm the Capitol. The former president was “no innocent bystander,” lead impeachment manager Rep. Jamie Raskin (D-Md.) said, adding that he “surrendered his role as commander in chief and became the inciter in chief of a dangerous insurrection.”

“He told them to ‘fight like hell’ and they brought us hell that day,” Raskin said.

The evidence included dozens of Trump tweets and statements prior to the attack ― some casting doubt on the 2020 presidential election results, some telling supporters to come to Washington, D.C., on Jan. 6 and “fight like hell” to stop the Electoral College certification. And Democratic impeachment managers presented statements from the rioters themselves that, in the words of Rep. Joe Neguse (D-Colo.), showed they were “following the president’s orders.”

But none of that seemed to matter to GOP senators. Republicans spent breaks in between the presentations telling reporters that they were all ready to vote.

“I don’t think there’s anything that’s been said by either side that has changed any votes,” Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) told HuffPost at one point Wednesday afternoon. “There’s nothing that I have heard during this process that I hadn’t already heard.”

When HuffPost pressed Inhofe if there was anything that could change his mind, he said no.

“Not from anything that I have seen so far, and I can’t imagine what else is out there,” Inhofe said.

Sen. Josh Hawley (R-Mo.), who led the effort to contest the 2020 election in Congress, said he believed that holding a trial for a former president is unconstitutional ― a dubious view the Senate rejected in a bipartisan vote on Tuesday ― and that no evidence would convince him of Trump’s guilt.

“There’s nothing new here, for me, at the end of the day,” Hawley said. “I think that we don’t have jurisdiction as a court in order to pursue this, so nothing that I’ve seen changes my view on that, and if you don’t have jurisdiction, that’s just the end of the call.”

Hawley spent much of the day alone in the public gallery above the Senate floor, which officials had made available to senators to accommodate for social distancing and reading documents while Democrats presented their case. While Hawley didn’t seem to be paying attention to the floor proceedings, he did note that his view from the gallery afforded him the opportunity to watch senator reactions from above.

“It’s interesting to sort of see people taking notes or not,” Hawley said.

To Hawley’s point, a number of Democrats spent Wednesday taking notes and paying close attention to the presentation, while most Republicans seemed uninterested and unengaged, sitting back in their seats or reading unrelated documents.
Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) walks through the Senate subway on his way to the second day of former President Donald Trump's second impeachment trial at the U.S. Capitol on Feb. 10.




Some people can’t get enough of having their photos taken. Photographer Mikaël Theimer‘s girlfriend is the opposite. She’s extremely camera shy, so it’s difficult for Theimer to get any photo of her smiling and looking into his camera.
That doesn’t stop Theimer from trying though, and over time an unusual photo project was born.

“I love my girlfriend, and I’m a photographer, so I love to take pictures of my girlfriend, right? Problem is, she hates it when I do: whenever I raise my camera and point it to her, she finds a way to hide her face,” the Montréal-based photographer writes at Bored Panda.

His series of portraits show his efforts at trying and failing to get a good shot of his girlfriend.



Princess Anne Thinks Harry and Meghan’s Royal Exit Was “The Right Thing to Do”

Kayleigh Roberts
Fri, February 19, 2021, 4:28 PM


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal exit, now fully permanent, has been controversial among some royal fans and, according to anonymous royal "sources," even among some members of the royal family. One royal has gone very much on the record supporting the move though: Harry's aunt, Princess Anne.

Princess Anne (aka Anne, Princess Royal) is Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's second child and only daughter and she's definitely Team Sussex. In an April 2020 interview with Vanity Fair (which happened to take place just a month after Harry and Meghan announced their decision to step back from royal duties), the royal made a firm statement about her nephew's big move.

"I think it was probably easier for them, and I think most people would argue that there are downsides to having titles," she explained to royal expert Katie Nicholl. "So I think that was probably the right thing to do."

Anyone who knows much about the royal family won't be surprised by Anne's stance, of course. Even though she's still a working royal herself, she and her first husband, Mark Phillips, opted to break royal tradition and decline HRH titles for their children, Peter Phillips and Zara Tindall. Harry and Meghan, of course, made the same call when their son, Archie Harrison, was born in 2019, deciding against having the Queen give him a royal title.

It's good to know that, no matter how many rumors there are of royal feuds related to Harry and Meghan's exit, they have at least one relative who is firmly on their side.



Britain's Prince Charles visits father Philip in hospital
Sat, February 20, 2021, 8:33 PM

Charles arrived at the back of the London hospital where Philip, the 99-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth, has spent four nights.
Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, was admitted to hospital on Tuesday (February 16) as a precautionary measure after feeling ill with an ailment that is not related to COVID-19.He is expected to remain in hospital until next week, a royal source said on Friday (February 19), adding that doctors were acting out of an abundance of caution and the duke remains in good spirits.Both Philip and the 94-year-old queen received their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in January.



Queen Elizabeth Reportedly Wasted No Time Deciding Who Will Take Over Meghan Markle & Prince Harry's Royal Patronages

The internal battle of the royal family continues to escalate. When one side throws a punch, the other comes back swinging. News of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s upcoming tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey made headlines (just a reminder it’s March 7, so mark your calendars), and it’s announced that Queen Elizabeth will also give a televised statement hours before Harry and Meghan’s interview airs. Harry and Meghan take a step back from royal life, moving to California, and Queen Elizabeth strips them both of their patronages and royal titles. With the announcement that they’re officially leaving their royal duties, The UK’s Mirror reports that Queen Elizabeth decided “long ago” who would take over their titles — and will “announce her choices to the Royal Family in the coming weeks.”

How long ago, exactly? We don’t know, but it sounds like it was before it was official that the Sussexes would be stepping away from their royal duties permanently. So who, exactly, is going to take over their titles? It’s rumored that Princess Anne will take over Harry’s position as Captain General of the Royal Marines, while Prince Edward or his wife Sophie could be taking over Meghan’s position as National Theater patron.
The Royals’ opposing struggles are understandable. It’s a story we’ve seen time and time again: tradition and unconventional beliefs battling one another. We’ll just have to wait and see what Queen Elizabeth announces in the upcoming weeks — and whether Harry and Meghan will have anything to say about it.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have set out some of their ambitions for the next year after confirming they would not be returning to work as senior members of the Royal Family.
The couple made their first appearance since announcing Meghan's pregnancy in a short clip shared as part of the Spotify Stream On event.
They signed a deal last year with the streaming giant to make podcasts through their production company Archewell Audio, though only one episode has been released so far.
Explaining their goal for the podcasts, Meghan said: “We’re using podcasting to drive powerful conversations.”
Harry continued: “That inspire, challenge, and educate.”

Former actor Meghan, 39, added: “We created Archewell Audio to make sure that we can elevate voices that maybe aren’t being heard, and hear people’s stories.”

Harry, 36, then said: “And the biggest part of this is trying to create this community of where you can share. We encourage everybody else to then share their own vulnerabilities within that safe space.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex released their first podcast in between Christmas and New Year, speaking to friends including James Corden and Sir Elton John about how the coronavirus pandemic had impacted them.
They are also producing programmes for Netflix.
The couple confirmed last week that they would not be returning to their former lives as working royals, making the final announcement more than a month early as they came to an arrangement with the Queen.

Having stated they wanted to step back last year, the Queen gave the couple a 12-month review period, which was due to come to an end on 31 March.
But ahead of schedule Buckingham Palace confirmed the couple would not return as senior royals.
The Queen said they would always be "much loved members of the family".
A YouGov poll taken after the palace's statement showed that nearly half of Britons thought Prince Harry should be removed from the line of succession.
Harry is sixth in line to the throne, and his son Archie is seventh. The lack of royal title does not change his position.

In recent history the only person removed from the line of succession was Prince Michael of Kent when he married Marie-Christine von Reibnitz, now Princess Michael of Kent, because she is Catholic.
His position in line was reinstated when the law changed in 2013, ending the practice of removing those who marry Catholics.
Harry and Meghan now live in Santa Barbara, California, with their one-year-old son Archie, who will become a big brother later this year.
Meghan is expecting their second child, but the due date is not known.



How to Make Queen Elizabeth's Favorite (and Simple) Cocktail — from PEOPLE Royals ' First Issue!

This cocktail has Queen Elizabeth's royal stamp of approval.
The monarch has been rumored to enjoy up to four drinks per day, but those who know her best tell the newly launched PEOPLE Royals magazine (out Friday, March 5!) that she limits herself to just one: a gin and Dubonnet cocktail just before dinner.
While the Queen, 94, has her page Paul Whybrew on-hand to fix her evening drink, the recipe is so simple that anyone can replicate it. One serving of the cocktail calls for 2 oz. Dubonnet with 1 oz. gin added to ice and stirred until chilled, then strain into a martini or coupe glass. For the finishing touch, add a lemon peel.
Queen Elizabeth's enjoyment of gin is no secret. In fact, Buckingham Palace launched its very own gin with many of the ingredients come straight from the backyard of Queen Elizabeth's London home. And Sandringham estate, the country home in Norfolk where the monarch traditionally spends Christmas, launched its own gin last year — also complete with ingredients from the royal residence's gardens.
In addition, Prince Charles produces organic gin on his Highgrove Estate in Cornwall, while the Queen's Balmoral estate in Scotland distills its own single malt whisky.

Queen Elizabeth's cocktail recipe is featured in the first issue of PEOPLE Royals along with glamorous new photos and inside stories fans haven't seen or read elsewhere – from lavish celebrations and cocktails fit for a Queen to the luxurious lifestyles of the world's real-life princes, princesses, kings and queens.
"PEOPLE has reported on the royals since its debut in 1974," says Dan Wakeford, Editor-in-Chief, PEOPLE. "We felt it was only natural to launch a stand-alone beautifully crafted quarterly magazine that will inspire and entertain with deep stories and lush photography."
