New big contract for Meghan Markle and Harry: they’re going into podcasting!

Meghan and Harry’s entourage had warned: in 2021, they were going to pass the second one and chain the projects. These people were not lying. In a press release, the Spotify platform announced an “exclusive multi-year partnership with Archewell Studio”, the Sussex-based company. Those who gave up their royal duties nearly a year ago will produce and host podcasts, including one around the vacations that will be released in the coming weeks.

Spotify is looking forward to this partnership and warns that “Archewell Audio will offer programming that will educate and entertain audiences around the world. Meghan and Harry say that the podcasts will be a way to “connect with each other without distraction” and that after what has been a very trying year for everyone, it’s very important that everyone connects. And since good news never comes alone, the podcasts from the couple who are about to celebrate Christmas in California will be available for free. Note that the amount of this contract, which seems to be particularly juicy, has not been revealed.

They are full of projects!

This Spotify deal isn’t the only one that was signed at the end of the year. Indeed, the one who shot in the Suits series invested in the startup Clevr Blends who makes instant oat milk lattes and started to promote them in a clumsy way. In addition to these two deals, a third one was signed with the Netlix platform for the very nice sum of €150 million.

Meghan and Harry: How much did they get for their new gold contract?

A few months after partnering with Netflix, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry signed a new agreement. The Sussex will produce podcasts for the giant Spotify.

Sussex is on all fronts. After signing a juicy deal with Netflix a few weeks ago, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have just joined forces with a new giant. And after television, they’re going after digital and radio as they’ve reached a deal with Spotify.

Specifically, Archie’s parents will produce exclusive podcasts for the streaming platform. And it’s through the foundation they created, Archewell, that they’re going to get started. In the near future, Spotify users will be able to listen to programmes hosted and produced by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex themselves with a clear goal: “to create community through shared experience, shared stories and shared values”. The first series of Archewell Audio podcasts for Spotify is scheduled for release next year, 2021.

Prior to the official launch of this series, listeners will already be able to hear a travel story by the couple with “stories of hope and compassion” to celebrate the new year. “What we love about podcasting is that it reminds us all to take a moment and really listen, to connect with each other without distraction,” said Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do this, because when we hear each other and listen to each other’s stories, we remember how interconnected we all are.” And for Spotify, that’s a real godsend. “The power of their voices lies in their status as global citizens,” added content manager Dawn Ostroff in a statement, explaining that they will seek to bring “under-represented voices” to the table.

Meghan Markle goes into business

Details of the agreement have not yet been disclosed at this time, nor the amount that Sussex will receive for it. But as the Daily Mail reminds us, the deal is likely to be worth several million dollars, since just a few months ago Spotify paid £75 million to host Joe Rogan’s work. So it’s a fresh start for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, who left the British Crown at the end of March. Since settled in the United States, they have launched their organization, thanks to which they have concluded a golden contract with Netflix. Meghan Markle has also just entered the business world by injecting money into a company that is close to her heart. In Los Angeles, the Sussex are getting into business.
