Meghan and Harry sing together in Archewell Audio trailer
Meghan and Harry claimed they wanted to be “financially independent” from their very first announcement explaining they were going to step back from the monarchy in January last year. But, Harry claimed in his bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that it was only after his father Prince Charles “literally cut me off” financially that the couple were drawn to streaming services as a new source of income. They signed a deal with Netflix last year of historic value — said to be worth $150million (£107million) — and a subsequent contract with Spotify, estimated to be worth $25million (£18million).
While the couple have announced their first “creative activation” with Netflix, a documentary following athletes training for Harry’s sporting competition the Invictus Games, they only released one 35-minute podcast for Spotify back in December.
There has been radio silence from the Sussexes about their podcast branch of their new venture, Archewell Audio, over the last six months.
Royal watchers should not expect any new content to be released any time soon either, as the couple just took a five-month hiatus from their working lives to bond with their newborn daughter Lilibet Diana.
Royal commentator Phil Dampier warned: “We’re being told they’re having up to five months off and people who are paying them a lot of money will expect something in return.
