Any sighting or glimpse of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan Markle's son Archie is a joy for royal fans.
And, his latest appearance was no exception, surprising listeners on the Sussexes' new podcast with his first words spoken to the public.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have teamed up with Spotify to launch Archewell Audio, a very special podcast platform that aims to highlight a range of different voices and perspectives.
With the very first episode of the highly anticipated series now live the appearance from 19-month-old Archie undoubtedly stole the show.

Urging Archie to speak into the microphone Harry said: "You can speak into it" before Meghan asked: "Archie, is it fun?"
And in one simple response our hearts burst under the surmounting cuteness as Archie responded: "Fun."
Slowly guiding the toddler Harry and Meghan coax the sweetest Happy New Year message from their son.
"After me, ready? Happy..." Harry begins before Archie follows with "Happy."
Chiming in together the parents then say "New" before Archie adorably jumps the gun and responds: "New Year!"

The holiday themed episode also featured appearances from singer Elton John, producer and actor Tyler Perry, tennis champion Naomi Osaka and other big-name stars all reflecting on 2020 and their hopes for the year to come.
In what can perhaps be seen as a subtle nod to the tumultuous year the couple endured, Meghan sent well-wishes to one recently engaged star of the podcast, George the Poet.
"'From us I will say no matter what life throws at you guys, trust us when we say, love wins."
Before wrapping up the episode the couple played The Little Light Of Mine, which featured in the 2018 wedding, before Meghan recited a quote from Martin Luther King: "Darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that".
