Meghan Markle, 40, and Prince Harry, 37, launched their Archewell foundation after stepping back as senior members of the Royal Family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have settled into a new life in Montecito in California, bought an £11million house, secured lucrative multimillion-pound deals with Netflix and Spotify and volunteered during the COVID-19 crisis. But the pair have only released one podcast on Spotify.
Royal expert Neil Sean has claimed their deal with Spotify is “not in its original format”.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean said: “Apparently Spotify are mystified by the lack of content.
“I’m not really mystified by it, when you think about it there are two people who have never truly made audio broadcasts before or really had any involvement within the media.
“The former actress, of course, has appeared in a few movies and TV but that’s really is their extent of media involvement.

“What’s interesting to note is there have been some false stop-starts but it does appear Spotify is saying, ‘where is the content?’
“They’ve only paid a small sizeable fee but they want to see something.”
He added: “It appears that Harry and Meghan still have some kind of deal with Spotify but it’s not in the original format.
“It appears the plans are now on an ad hoc basis so it makes it more enthralling.
“While there’s still a deal, there’s nothing concrete about a regular broadcast.”
The former actress’ high-profile appearance comes eight months after the Sussexes’ controversial sit-down with Oprah Winfrey which left the royal family in crisis.
Meghan and Harry have until now remained private about Lili, who was born in June and was named Lilibet after the royal family’s nickname for the Queen.
They are yet to share a photo publicly of their daughter.
The duchess told chat show host Ellen DeGeneres that “Someone told H (Harry) and I that when you have one kid it’s a hobby, and two children is parenting.
“Suddenly we realised, ‘oh right’, everyone talks about what it’s like for the second child but no-one talks about the adjustment for the first child when the second one comes along.”
