    However, the idea to bring personalities like Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin was snubbed along with many other Prince Harry’s ideas. Over the three-year deal with Spotify, Meghan Markle only produced one 12-episode season of her podcast- Archetypes. The podcast had over many celebrity guests including Paris Hilton, Mindy Kaling, and Mariah Carrey.

    The Sussexes’ Spotify arrangement was officially declared over in a joint statement from both the parties-Spotify and Archewell Audio. The statement released said that they have mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series they made. But according to New York Post, the Archewell media company did not produce enough content for the deal to continue.
