ICYMI, Meghan Markle and Serena Williams recorded a podcast episode together.

On the first episode of the Duchess of Sussex' long-awaited Archetypes podcast, she invited tennis champion and friend Williams to help her rethink the meaning of the word "ambition" as it relates to women.

To help reach allll the people, Williams helped with promotion efforts by posting the literal cutest photo of herself with the duchess and her daughter Olympia, whom she shares with husband Alexis Ohanian.

In the pic, Williams rocks a simple pony tail, with a Nike bodysuit or swimsuit, while little Olympia wears her hair in twin buns, plus a sweet t-shirt and leggings. The duchess wears her hair middle-parted and down, with a denim dress and a jacket worn like a cape.

The athlete captioned the Instagram post, "I loved talking about so many important topics with my dear friend Meghan as her first guest on #archetypes for @spotify! It’s out now and worth the listen, especially if you’re ambitious."

Blue-ticked commenters including Karlie Kloss, Paris Hilton and Edward Enningful jumped in to show their support for the podcast and its message.

Including Olympia in the photo wasn't a coincidence: Both the duchess and the tennis player opened up about their experiences as working moms in the spotlight during the episode.

Notably, Markle shared a distressing story about a fire breaking out in Archie's nursery during hers and Prince Harry's tour of South Africa in 2019. She criticized royal protocol that meant the Sussexes weren't allowed time to regroup after they found out about the fire, and instead had to directly attend their next engagement.
