Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have always drawn divisive views from people, regardless of what they do. With a new edition of their Spotify podcast out, some have questioned their motives once more.
Yesterday, Spotify announced on Twitter that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had released a holiday special on their Archewell Audio podcast. The streaming service billed the special as a hope and inspiration-filled one.
The Archewell Audio holiday special included songs and appearances from several famous names, including James Corden, Elton John, and Stacey Abrams.
However, while the Duke and Duchess appear to be working on spreading love and cheer this holiday season, several people did not take well to the comments.
Particularly, many had commented that the couple doing a podcast was contradictory to their self-proclaimed desire to remain private. One Twitter user wrote:
"Wanting a quiet more normal life for their family is really working out well! Not going to listen to this rubbish."
Others piled on, explaining that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were merely being hypocritical by deliberately putting themselves out in the open.
The couple's problems with publicity have been well-documented in the past. However, as many noted in the comment section, this might not help things so much.
Whether it is for its content or motive, the Archewell Audio special definitely has no shortage of haters.
Beyond the reasoning behind the podcast, many also slammed it for being rather dull. Per reports, the podcast had included several of the names outlined above and even ended with Archie giggling as he wished listeners a happy new year.
The Duke and Duchess also played their part, with Markle quoting the late Martin Luther King Jr., and the pair encouraging everyone that love always wins.
Still, many listeners were left unimpressed. While some praised the podcast for being heartwarming, critics pointed out that it seemed too "dull and preachy."
Whether it is for its content or motive, the Archewell Audio special definitely has no shortage of haters. There is little to show that these people will stop their criticism anytime soon.
The critics will definitely have a lot of material, considering that the podcast will most likely keep airing into the new year. According to reports, Spotify and the Sussexes signed a multi-project deal.
So, this edition of Archewell Audio is only the first to come from the family. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seem like they would do anything to just be normal people. However, the critics will most likely not stop coming for them.
