A multi-million dollar deal between the media group run by Britain’s Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle and streaming giant Spotify is coming to an end, reports Thursday reported.
Since signing a reportedly $20 million deal in 2020, the couple has produced only one series under the Archewell Audio podcast name.
The show, Markle’s “Archetype,” topped the media’s podcast charts in many markets, and listeners were flooded with her discussions with influential women.
However, trading company Variety reported on Thursday that Spotify was expecting more material, citing unnamed sources.
Variety, citing another source, reported that Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex were looking for a new home for their content.
Spotify and Archewell did not immediately respond to AFP’s request for comment.
Prince Harry, the second son of Britain’s King Charles, stepped out of the crosshairs in 2018 amid a flurry of positive press that seemed to help bring a tradition-bound monarchy into the 21st century. Married former US TV actress Meghan Markle.
But over the years, the couple’s relationship with the family deteriorated, and Markle was accused of being subjected to racism.
The Harrys retired from royal life and moved to California, where they continue their brick attacks on the facility.
The most explosive hits were the 38-year-old prince’s revealing autobiography, a Netflix documentary series, and a high-profile interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Since leaving royal duties, the couple have tried to make money through their media business.
