Prince Harry and Meghan Markle continue to launch new projects, but time spent with 1-year-old Archie remains their top priority.
On Tuesday morning, the Duke and Duchess hosted their first TIME100 Talks episode. The conversation, on pursuing a "compassionate, safe, and trustworthy digital world," was their latest in a series of branching-out projects, which have included a Netflix deal and various speaking events. But throughout them all, the conversation always shifts to little Archie — and the collaboration with TIME was no exception.

Harry and Meghan got underway by chatting candidly with TIME editor-in-chief Edward Felsenthal. The moment saw the Duke and Duchess reflect on mental well-being and family, when asked to speak on coping with pandemic living.
"All things considered, everyone is grappling with a different version of the same thing," Meghan began. "For us, we're just trying to embrace all of the quality time we get with our son right now and to not miss a single moment of his growth and development, which has been really special."
Prince Harry went on to stress the importance of checking in on one another during trying times. For him, meaning lies in how the question "How are you?" has evolved. "When people ask, 'how are you?' I sense it's a case of, really, how are you?" Harry explained. "This year more so than ever, it really is a question of—no, no, no—how, actually, how are you?"
