Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new podcast may let them ‘be free of trolls’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may finally be free of trolls on their new Spotify platform because users will not be able to comment on the podcasts, according to experts.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex turned comments off on their Sussex Royal Instagram page after Meghan had said she was "the most trolled woman in the world" in 2019.

As they turn to Spotify for a new series called Archewell Audio, focusing on human achievement and kindness, royal commentators questioned if part of the reason they chose the platform was so people couldn't comment.

Speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, host Roberta Fiorito said: "I’m happy if podcasts are how we hear from them, versus Instagram, for a while because for them there are no trolls on this platform.

"You know, if they want to read their email, I’m sure they have producers filtering it.

"I think that is much healthier for them."

Chipping in, co-host Rachel Bowie said: "What are they going to do about social media?

"I feel like they have taken this firm stance against a lot of platforms this year with talking about kindness online and how they want to work toward bettering online communities, but I think podcasts are a perfect way to get on something and get their message out there without having the trolls and the comments and all that."

There has already been some backlash to the news of their Archewell Audio podcast, with Good Morning Britain presenter Piers Morgan pretending to vomit into a bucket.

The loudmouth ITV host then said: "They are still the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, they are still royals but they don't do anything they don't want to, they aren't opening a village hall on a wet Wednesday in Stoke.

"They are now doing commercial deals which is fine but they are only making the money as they are Duke and Duchess of Sussex."

He said it would be "fine" if they dropped their royal titles.
