Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
In mid-December, it became known that 39-year-old Meghan Markle and her 36-year-old husband Prince Harry signed a contract with the Internet streaming audio service Spotify and became the hosts of the podcast. And yesterday they presented their first special edition.
The guests of the Dukes of Sussex were their friend, the famous singer Elton John, the winner of three Grand Slam tournaments, the famous tennis player Naomi Osaka, TV presenter James Corden, producer Tyler Perry (it was his house that the couple rented in Los Angeles until they bought their own) and others.
These are the people who inspire us and whom we admire,
– said the duchess.
The couple asked their guests to record audio diaries for this podcast.
We were curious to hear what they would think about when they had a free moment,
– explained Megan and Harry.
So, Elton John said that he was on tour when the lockdown began in the UK. He returned to England only in May.
It was so weird because everything was in full swing and then suddenly stopped. I am 73 years old, I am diabetic and at risk,
– he said.
The singer also noted the importance of applications such as Zoom, which made it possible to communicate with family and friends via video during a pandemic.
I am being treated for alcoholism, so every Sunday I have Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. I communicate with my friends whom I have known for about 30 years, which is great. And if it wasn’t for the zoom, I don’t know what I would do. It was salvation
– he admitted.
