The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a brief appearance during Spotify's Stream On virtual event on Monday.

During the online event, the music streaming service broke down the various departments within the organisation, focusing on aspects like music, podcasts and supporting creators, with a number of guest speakers joining in to share more about their projects.

Harry and Meghan inked a multi-year deal with Spotify in 2020, which will see them produce podcasts for the streaming giant via their production company, Archewell.

"We're using podcasting to drive powerful conversation..." Meghan says in the video, as Harry adds: "That inspire, challenge and educate."

The couple is then seen seated on a couch as Meghan continues: "We created Archewell Audio to make sure that we can elevate voices that maybe aren't being heard and hear people's stories."

"And the biggest part of this is trying to create this community of where you can share. We'll encourage everybody else to then share their own vulnerabilities within that safe space," Harry ends off the short clip.

The Stream On event included other artists like Khalid, who shared his story of success as fans continue to stream his music, as well as a performance by Justin Bieber.
