Harry and Meghan sign podcast deal with Spotify

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a deal with Spotify to produce podcasts that tell “uplifting and entertaining stories,” the audio streaming service said.

Since ceasing royal duties and moving to California this year, the couple have launched various creative ventures, and begun legal actions against British tabloids over privacy violations.

They signed a deal with streaming giant Netflix in September to produce “impactful” films, while Markle, a former television actress, narrated a wildlife documentary on Disney+.

Launched in Sweden in 2008, Spotify has previously signed celebrity podcasters including Barack and Michelle Obama. The company did not say how much the deal with the royals was worth.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement that “what we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen.”

Spotify describes itself as the world’s most popular audio streaming subscription service.
