Archetypes podcast has a new home after it was reported that Meghan Markle has returned to podcasting, a year after she and Prince Harry ended their Spotify partnership.

The Duchess of Sussex had previously announced that she was collaborating with Lemonada Media on a new podcast.

The Hollywood Reporter received a statement from Markle that read:

“I’m proud to now be able to share that I am joining the brilliant team at Lemonada to continue my love of podcasting. Being able to support a female-founded company with a roster of thought-provoking and highly entertaining podcasts is a fantastic way to kick off 2024.” 

Lemonada has revealed that she will be re-releasing Archetypes, which was previously a Spotify exclusive “so that more people can now have access to it.”

However, she is not only looking forward to her new podcasting endeavor; she is also looking back.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are going on a movie date. The couple made their public debut on January 23 in Jamaica to attend the world premiere of the much-awaited biopic Bob Marley: One Love.

In December 2020, Markle and Harry’s production company, Archewell Audio, signed a contract with Spotify after they decided to resign as members of the royal family in January of that same year. 

Archetypes which ran for 12 episodes and featured interviews with Serena Williams, Mariah Carey, and Mindy Kaling, saw the 42-year-old explore various types of stereotypes that women encounter.

Markle said her work with the podcast continued back in June, following the announcement by the royal family and Spotify that they were ending their partnership.

Her representative stated to The Wall Street Journal at the time that the Duchess “is continuing to develop more content for the Archetypes audience on another platform.” 

Despite their hectic schedules, which include production work with Archewell and overseeing the Invictus Games for injured veterans, Harry and Princess Lilibet have occasionally shared glimpses into their lives with their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.
