Meghan Markle told ‘we’ve all moved on’ as critic questions Spotify project

An outspoken royal critic has blasted the topic of Meghan Markle's upcoming podcast by saying people have moved on from "women who have been stereotyped, to gender."

The Duchess of Sussex is expected to launch her podcast Archetypes for the music-sharing platform Spotify sometime this summer.

Meghan will chat with women and experts from various backgrounds to discuss the stereotypes and labels holding women back in society.

But Prince Harry's biographer Angela Levin branded the idea behind the podcast as "passé" as she questioned the success of the project.

Speaking to TalkTV, Ms Levin said: "Spotify is waiting for the summer for her to do another thing which is about women who are stereotyped.

"Where does it come from? She's going to speak to historians and women who feel stereotyped.

"But hang on, what's going on with it? Nothing yet so it's very similar to Netflix.

"It's all about her, being a proud woman but actually, it's sort of passé."

She added: "We've all moved on, most women are ok, the thing now is gender rather than actually being a woman."

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex struck an estimated £25 million deal with the streaming platform in December 2020, less than a year after stepping down from the Royal Family.

They recorded a brief holiday message to share "a special collection of inspiration, reflection, and perspective from guests around the world."

Meghan and Harry however have not shared any further episodes in over a year and the Duchess's podcast will be the first full-length project released on Spotify.

The comments come after Netflix confirmed the Duchess of Sussex's project Pearl had been axed amid cutbacks.

Meghan was announced as the producer of the animated series alongside Elton John's producer husband, David Furnish, last year.

The project was expected to focus on a young girl named Pearl learning from women of the past.

The streaming service announced a sharp fall in subscribers, with $50bn being wiped off the company's market value.
