HOPE & REFLECTION

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex Look Back on 2020—and Forward to 2021—With Special Guests in a New Holiday Special

December 29, 2020

While 2020 proved to be a challenging year that forced many to adapt to new realities, it also showed how people can thrive amidst change and find ways to look deeper at themselves. Today, in a new standalone Holiday Special produced by Archewell Audio and Gimlet, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reflect back on the year that changed everything. The episode, which listeners can stream for free exclusively on Spotify, features a diverse array of voices sharing lessons, reflections, and hopes for the new year. 

“As we come to the end of this year, and look to the future, let’s hold onto the lessons we’ve learned about how important it is to take care of one another, and how meaningful our connections are—even when they’re physically impossible,” explains Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, at the beginning of the episode.

“We thought, what if we can bring together some people that inspire us—people that we admire—and get their thoughts on what they learned from 2020,” continues Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

Tune into the Holiday Special presented by The Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they bring together 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). 

Join them as they reflect on the year, speak openly about the power of compassion, kindness, and connection, and toast to a hopeful 2021.
