Meghan Markle loses over R360-million as Spotify cancels podcast

Quite a major setback for the Duchess of Sussex.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Since relinquishing their royal duties in 2020, Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, have been making headlines for various reasons.

The Duke of Sussex, Harry has released his controversial and much-talked-about autobiography, and Meghan has had to deal with the consistent hassle of paparazzi where ever they go.

Now the couple has hit another bump in the round in their attempt to make a living after being cut off from the British royal family.

Forbes has estimated the couple's combined net worth at $10 million, which includes Harry's inheritance from his mother, Princess Diana, and their equity in their California mansion.

The couple might have a multiyear deal with Netflix to produce various programmes, but their podcast production company, Archewell Audio, has just lost a pretty big deal.

Spotify and Archewell Audio have come to a mutual agreement that they will be ending their commercial partnership after one podcast series.

Spotify announced the partnership in 2020 and aimed to have the couple produce podcasts and shows that share "uplifting and entertaining stories".

Unfortunately, after only one season of Meghan Markle's 'Archetype' podcast, it has ended.

Hopefully, fans of the couple can still look forward to many other sources, like Netflix, for royal content.
