The British Royals may be… well, British… but fascination for the multi-generational family seems to be at an all-time high in the U.S. ABC Audio is counting on that with the launch this week of “The HeirPod” podcast. Hosted by ABC News Royal Contributor Omid Scobie, it “takes listeners behind palace walls and dives deep into the latest stories from the House of Windsor with insider interviews and special guests.” 

Scobie is a London-based journalist who has regularly appeared on “Good Morning America” and is Harper Bazaar’s Royal Editor at Large. He has covered the lives and philanthropic work of the younger members of the British Royal Family for nearly a decade. As well as spearheading exclusive coverage of major royal milestones, ABC says that Scobie has extensively traveled to report on Harry, Meghan, William and Kate’s engagements in the UK, and around the world.

The first episode, which debuted Oct. 3—with new episodes posting every Thursday—is titled “Africa Tour Special! On the road with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan,” covering the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's 10-day, four-country tour of Africa. ABC News foreign correspondent Maggie Rulli also joins as listeners “hear new details from the couple's precious moments with baby Archie, the emotional story behind Harry's visit to Angola, and why Meghan put women's issues at the forefront of her tour agenda.”

“The HeirPod” is available on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Pandora, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn and the ABC News app.
