If you fancy more content on the Royal Family after Season 4 of The crown, Spotify will help you. Today, the streaming service announced an exclusive podcast deal with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The royal couple will host and produce several podcasts starting in 2021. While you will have to wait for a full series, the first item on the agenda will debut this month: a holiday special co-produced by Archewell Audio, The Duke and the Duchess’ new audio production company, and Gimlet, podcast production studio owned by Spotify.
“What we love about podcasting is that it reminds us all to take a moment and really listen, to connect with each other without distraction,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a joint press release. “With the challenges of 2020, there has never been a more important time to do this, because when we get along and hear each other’s stories, we remember how interconnected we are all.” The royal couple signed a multi-year agreement with Netflix in September with the aim of “creating content that informs but also gives hope”.
