Prince Charles is following in the footsteps of Kate Middleton and Prince Harry before him and saying hello to podcasting.
The 71-year-old Prince of Wales is hitting the ground running after recovering from COVID-19 and teaming up with Westminster Abbey to release a podcast episode. Because of social distancing, the Abbey has opted to introduce a brand-new podcast to help people worship from afar. That’s where Prince Charles comes in.
This weekend, the prince can be heard reading a verse from The Bible (John 20: 1-18 to be specific) about Mary Magdalene learning that Jesus is missing from his tomb. As a stand-in for Easter services, Prince Charles’s podcast will be available to stream beginning on Easter Day, Sunday, April 12 at 9 a.m. GMT.
This is the prince’s first foray into podcasting, but we’re hoping it won’t be his last. His son, Prince Harry, was the first royal to appear on a podcast. The Duchess of Cambridge followed by participating in a candid interview earlier this year on the popular parenting podcast, Happy Mum, Happy Baby from bestselling author Giovanna Fletcher. She opened up about motherhood, life as a royal and more. With Prince Charles dipping his toe into the world of podcasting, it’s clear now more than ever that the royals are modernizing by leaps and bounds.
