Meghan Markle and Prince
Harry have lined up several exciting projects since stepping back as
senior working royals in 2020. One of the most anticipated is their
upcoming podcast, Archetypes, which is set to launch this summer following
a one-off Christmas special in 2020.
But if fans tune in expecting
to hear from Meghan or Harry about royal life, it’s very unlikely they’ll hear
the inside scoop.
That’s because Harry’s promise
to “protect” the Queen means that they won’t share details about
what being a working member of the institution involves.
The couple spent more than a
year finalizing the details of their podcast, and royal watchers will no doubt
be keen to hear what the parents-of-two cover – and whether in the
future, little Lili might even appear on the show, as her
brother Archie did in the first episode!
Earlier this year, the Duke
and Duchess’ Archewell foundation confirmed the news of the podcast’s
imminent release via a statement.
The Duke and Duchess visited the UK last week
It read: “As we all
continue to tackle the misinformation era, Archewell Audio has found it
important to work with our partners at Spotify to ensure that the digital
technologies so many of us use every day are rooted in strong principles of
trust and safety.
“We are encouraged by
ongoing conversations we’ve had with Spotify on this shared goal and have
been working closely with their team—as well as their senior leadership—towards
policies, practices, and strategies meant to raise creator awareness, minimize
the spread of misinformation, and support transparency.
The couple’s son Archie appeared on the couple’s first podcast
“As we move forward at
Archewell Audio, we too are eager to be responsible stewards of an audio
landscape that is well-resourced with quality, fact-based information—particularly
when it comes to public health.”
The confirmation came after
Meghan and Harry revealed their concern about COVID-19 misinformation on
Spotify, including Joe Rogan’s show.
