Former senior royals Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly set to be offered a mega deal by Spotify to launch a series of podcasts. According to UK tabloid The Mirror, the music streaming giant is interested to sign the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, after the couple became available for new opportunities, having stepped down from royal duties.

Sources claim that “money is no object” when it comes to Spotify’s offer, and the Duchess will be able to “more or less name her price”. The couple are set to be offered a massive seven-figure deal.

Spotify boasts a whopping 120 million subscribers worldwide. Former US first lady Michelle Obama recently debuted her exclusive podcast with the platform to much success.

So excited for you to hear the first episode of The #MichelleObamaPodcast with @BarackObama! I wanted to start this season off by discussing a relationship that a lot of us are spending a lot of time thinking about right now and that’s our relationship with our community and our country. Given everything that’s going on in the world, I think that these days, a lot of people are questioning just where and how they can fit into a community. And how you answer those questions is unique to you, your experiences, and your communities––but the important thing is that you do go through the process of reflecting and reaching out to loved ones to talk through what you’re feeling and what you’re hoping for. Because once you do those things, I think you’ll have a better sense of your community, your country, and yourselves. And if enough of us can do that—and if enough of us can empathize with one another—then over time––and it will take a long time, we can come up with some solutions and create the change we’re all hoping for.
