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.
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.
"HI guys, I'm Harry! And I'm Meghan". And we ♥️ our privacy. New podcast deal to 'uplift and entertain audiences around the world' will defo amuse. Should have called it Train-crash Radio. Be prepared for more woke preaching and product placement 😄https://t.co/ubtWpXL3IH pic.twitter.com/awTEKVWRYi— Red (@Redredred80) December 15, 2020
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.
"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.
