Will Netflix Turn On Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Next?

Will Netflix turn on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle next? That’s what a lot of fans can’t help but wonder as a new report says the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been axed by Spotify, despite their $20 million dollar contract deal. Here’s what you need to know.

Will Netflix Turn On Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Next?

According to the Wall Street Journal, Spotify has parted ways with Meghan Markle and her Archetypes podcast, despite the fact that it was a highly-rated one that managed to generate a lot of buzz. Soon after the announcement was made that Spotify was cutting ties with Meghan, Archwell released a statement that said, “The team behind #Archetypes remain proud of the podcast they created at Spotify. Meghan is continuing to develop more content for the Archetypes audience on another platform,” a spokeswoman for the couple’s Archewell Productions media company said.”

This has prompted a lot of people to wonder – will Netflix pull the plug on the Sussexes next? After all, they haven’t produced anything for the online streamer ever since their docuseries Harry and Meghan came out last December.

What’s Next For Prince Harry and Meghan Markle?

Of course, it didn’t take long at all for both royal fans and critics alike to weigh in on the matter. Some have commented with, “Haters will revel in this and squawk that she’s a failure and she got dumped. They will completely ignore the business context of what’s happening with Spotify company wide with huge layoffs and a change in focus. Spotify also lost the Obamas,” along with, “I don’t understand why they don’t self produce? I don’t understand anything about the podcast market, but I will say I just use the podcast app that comes with my iPhone and Archetypes wasn’t on that so I never listened to it.”

Another critic wrote, “ The Sussexes came in at the height of the streaming and podcasting bubble. With those sorts of deals, the money isn’t up front, it gets paid out as projects meet production milestones and then viewership/engagement goals. Yes, they took their time to get things right, but now the bubble’s burst and they aren’t going to ever earn the money they would have from those deals.”
