The Duke and Duchess of Sussex launched their podcast Archewell Audio last week and fans got to hear their son Archie speak for the first time in public!

We love seeing and hearing about all of the royal children's milestones, so HELLO! has taken a look back at when we heard Prince Harry and Meghan's son Archie and his cousins' Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis' voices for the first time.

WATCH: Hear Archie's sweet voice as he makes surprise appearance on podcast

Archie Harrison

At the end of Harry and Meghan's Holiday Special podcast episode in December 2020, Archie's adorable giggle and voice were heard for the first time in public.

The Duke can be heard telling his son: "You can speak into it." Next, mum Meghan asks Archie: "Archie, is it fun?" to which he replies: "Fun!"

Doting dad Harry then encourages him to wish listeners a happy new year, telling him: "After me, ready?" Copying his dad, who says "happy" into the microphone, Archie repeats the word. "Happy," he can be heard saying.

The Duke then says: "New," and Archie replies: "New year."

Royal fans also noticed a hint of an American accent in Archie's voice, following the family's relocation to Montecito, Santa Barbara, last year.

Prince George

In May 2019, Kensington Palace released clips of George, Charlotte and Louis playing in the Duchess of Cambridge's Back to Nature garden.

A then five-year-old George was heard chatting to his father Prince William for the first time publicly, as he played on a rope swing.

The Duke asked his eldest son: "What would you give [the garden] out of ten, George?" The future King replied with an enthusiastic: "Twenty!"

Princess Charlotte

During William and Kate's Canada tour in September 2016, a 16-month-old Charlotte delighted royal fans when she was heard saying her first words in public as the Cambridges attended a children's party.

Prince Louis

We heard the two-year-old speak publicly for the first time when the Cambridges released a sweet video of their three children asking questions to Sir David Attenborough about the natural world in October 2020.

Louis' big brother George said: "Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will become extinct next?"

Meanwhile, Charlotte said: "Hello David Attenborough, I like spiders, do you like spiders too?"

Little Louis then stole the show by taking a deep breath, before asking: "What animal do you like?"
