There will be a podcast series from Meghan Markle this summer. The Sussexes multiyear partnership with Spotify was first announced back in 2020.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Archewell Audio, the podcast studio owned by Prince Harry, the Duke, and Meghan the Duchess of Sussex, has signed a multiyear deal with Spotify despite the platform’s recent handling of COVID-related misinformation.

A spokesperson from Archewell Audio confirmed that the decision was made following conversations with Spotify executives regarding the streaming service provider’s misinformation policies and practices.
Archewell Audio only released a holiday special that featured everyone from Stacey Abrams to Deepak Chopra and Naomi Osaka. Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, the couple’s 2-year-old son, also made an appearance.
The Sussexes aim to build community through cultivating shared experience, drawing on first-person narratives and strong values with their podcast.
No other details regarding Markle’s podcast specifically have been revealed at the time.
