Meghan Markle and Prince Harry ‘to be offered £1m Spotify podcast megadeal’

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are set to be offered a seven-figure deal from Spotify to produce podcasts, it has been reported.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are living it up in their Santa Barbara mansion after they both officially left their positions in the Royal Family.

Now, music streaming giant Spotify has the couple in its sights and are hoping to sign them up following the success of Michelle Obama’s podcast, which launched last month.

Sources told The Mirror that money was "no object" for Spotify, which is worth £22billion, and that Meghan would be able to name her price.

An unnamed insider told the publication: “The Duke and Duchess have been on their hit list for a while and a detailed proposal is set to be presented to Meghan’s US agent in a matter of weeks.”

Rumours had been swirling that the power couple had been seeking to get a foothold in multiple business opportunities as they seek to become financially independent in North America.

The Sussexes have already featured in radio and podcasts and could use that experience to build a multi-million dollar empire.

Both Meghan and Harry appeared on Represent 107.3FM in Brixton – a 24-hour underground music station – as part of their second-ever engagement as a couple.

But Harry could make a quick dash back to the UK and put his business plans on pause for the Rugby League World Cup.

Speaking from his new mansion, Prince Harry said: "We've got a whole Rugby League world cup coming next year.

"I definitely plan on coming back. I would have been back already had it not been for Covid."

The Duke of Sussex added: "Watching Rugby League is exhausting.

"Listen I spent 10 years in the army, I know what endurance is all about. But it's madness.

"Full respect to anyone that plays the game, I think it's amazing, and a lot of people would be jealous not to be part of that community."
