Meghan and Harry redefine royal

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are back in action. With Finding Freedom now out there, and their new home chosen, they are making an increased number of appearances. Voting looks set to be a key, very unroyal theme for the Duchess in the lead up to the US election - but the Sussexes' time helping out at baby2baby was reminiscent of a royal engagement. Pod Save the Queen host Ann Gripper is joined by Daily Mirror royal editor Russell Myers to discuss the new setup, while Sarah Bradbury chips in with a style update. Ann and Russell also discuss a protest outside Buckingham Palace that went viral and the latest on Prince Andrew. Plus they chat about the impact of royal baby names and a very unexpected musical in the last show of the very extended series. Pod Save The Queen will definitely return in the final week of September (but we might come back before then so make sure you're subscribed 👸🏻) Until next time... #PodSaveTheQueen
