Meghan & Harry Slammed for Spotify Podcast — See Reactions to Their Latest Venture

Some fans on Twitter are angry about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's new partnership with Spotify, which will see them host original shows and podcasts. 

On Tuesday, digital music and podcast service provider Spotify announced a multi-year partnership with "Archewell Audio," Prince Harry, and Meghan Markle's new sound production company. 

With the partnership, the royal couple will host original podcasts and shows on Spotify. Following the announcement, Harry and Meghan debuted a preview of their upcoming "Archewell Audio podcast," which will begin next year.

The preview began with the prince introducing himself as Harry while Meghan followed suit. The lovely couple then bantered over which one of them would start the introductions. 

Harry suggested Meghan does so, saying ladies should go first, but his wife countered him, saying she thinks the introduction sounds nice with his accent. 

While the first full series of the Sussex Royals' podcasts would debut in 2021, a holiday special episode will premiere later in December. The news was met with great excitement among many fans. 

However, a few of them expressed their displeasure on Twitter, noting that Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior members of the British monarchy because they wanted privacy but are now going well into the spotlight. 

Meghan thanked the person who strived to ensure communities' basic needs were met during the year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

 In a tweet, Max Burns said Harry and Meghan left the royal family because they sought a normal lifestyle. He then mocked the royal couple, saying they longed for life's simple and anonymous pleasures like launching a heavily publicized podcast. 

Another tweep mocked Harry and Meghan by mimicking their introductory lines on their podcast's preview, adding that they should have called the podcast "Train-crash Radio." Another person wrote: 

"Didn't' they leave the UK to escape the public eye?"

Spotify's partnership with Harry and Meghan is coming two days after the latter made an unscheduled appearance on CNN's annual Heroes TV special Sunday, which honored the most inspiring moments in 2020 and those behind the moments. 

During her appearance, Meghan thanked the person who strived to ensure communities' basic needs were met during the year amid the COVID-19 pandemic, saying their efforts prevented those around them from suffering in isolation. 

Harry and Meghan launched Archewell Foundation in April following their departure from the royal family. Six months after the Foundation's birth, they launched its website, Archewell.com.

The website features a beige background and a simple homepage. There is an email sign-up and contact information at its bottom.

It also contains the definitions for "Arche," a Greek word that means "source of action" and "well," which means plentiful source or supply; and a place to dig deep.
