Harry and Meghan have they seen too big? In the winter of 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sign an agreement with Spotify and Netflix. To gain financial independence, they have committed to producing exclusive podcasts for the streaming platform. A deal valued at £ 18million for audio streaming giant Spotify. But with the birth of Lilibeth, it seems that activity is slowing down. What worries Spotify and Netflix, who are waiting for the promised content.
“We have been told that they are taking five months of maternity and paternity leave and the people who pay them an astronomical sum will expect something in return,” said Phil Dampier, author of the British royal family. So much so that the writer wonders if the tandem “does not have too much to manage” to be able to honor all its commitments made before the arrival of Lilibeth.
So far, Harry and Meghan have only delivered a 35-minute podcast. “We created Archewell Audio to make sure we can raise voices that may not be heard, to hear people’s stories,” Meghan Markle pleaded in a promotional video released by Spotify last February. Their first episode featured their little Archie.
On February 19, Buckingham Palace announced the final break between the Sussex spouses and the British royal family. Archie’s parents have confirmed to Queen Elizabeth II that they have no plans to return as active members of the Royal Family.
