Meghan Markle is facing a difficult period as her podcast, ‘Archetypes’, has been unexpectedly canceled by Spotify, leading a royal expert to suggest that the Duchess of Sussex could become a social media influencer.
Spotify’s decision to terminate the contract with the Sussexes after just one season comes as a major blow to Meghan and Prince Harry.
Meghan Markle Show: What’s in store for the Duchess?
Renowned American royal correspondent Kinsey Schofield, speaking on GB News, expressed her belief that the couple is going through a challenging time.
Schofield pointed out that Meghan does not like failure, and the cancellation of the podcast has occurred on a global stage, which aggravates the situation.
Furthermore, Schofield referenced other setbacks the couple has faced, such as the premature cancellation of their Netflix project, “Pearl,” and now being “kicking her to the curb” by Spotify in full view of the world.
Undoubtedly, this series of disappointments has left Meghan and Harry in a period of introspection, as they search for their identity and contemplate their next move.
“I think she’s going to have to resort to creating digital content because what else is she going to do?” Schofield stated, suggesting that becoming an influencer could be Meghan’s likely path.
With her extensive experience in the entertainment industry and her ability to connect with audiences, transitioning into digital content creation could provide Meghan with an opportunity to express herself and maintain her presence.
The dissolution of the partnership between Archewell Audio, the couple’s content creation label, and Spotify was confirmed through a joint statement.
Although the statement expressed mutual agreement to part ways, the decision clearly caught Meghan and Harry by surprise, adding to the challenges they face in building their independent ventures.
The couple had previously secured a lucrative $20 million deal with Spotify at the end of 2020, but the Sussexes failed to fulfill the commitments stipulated in the contract, meaning they would not receive the full amount agreed upon.
If the Duchess embraces the world of digital content creation, she could explore various avenues such as reviving her old blog, ‘The Tig,’ and returning to social media.
