“When Meghan said as young girls we are usually so fearless and then we grow more insecure as we grow up because we get aware of the archetypes thrown at us, I really felt that,” wrote one person.

There were a number of standout moments from the podcast – not least when Meghan spoke about the scary moment her son Archie’s nursery caught fire.

Meghan recalled a scary incident involving son Archie

Meghan and Prince Harry‘s son was just “four and a half months old” when they travelled to South Africa for their royal tour. “We dropped him off at this housing unit that we were staying at and he was getting ready to go down for his nap,” she began, adding that they immediately left for their first official engagement.

Following their outing, the couple got into their car and were told the news: “There’s been a fire at the residence. There’s been a fire in the baby’s room.”

Meghan continued: “Our amazing nanny Lauren…was in floods of tears. She was supposed to put Archie down for his nap and she just said, you know what, let me go and get a snack from downstairs.”

Lauren took Archie with her, meaning he was not in the room when the fire started.

“In that amount of time that she went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector, someone just happened to smell smoke down the hallway so they went in and the fire was extinguished. He was meant to be sleeping in there.

“Everyone’s in tears, everyone’s shaken. And what did we have to do? Go out and do another official engagement. And I said, ‘This doesn’t make any sense, can you just tell people what happened?”
