The Break Between the Sussexes and Spotify
Ten days ago, news from the United States arrived of the break between the Sussexes and Spotify: no, there will not be a second season of Archetypes on the famous streaming platform. “We have agreed to separate,” the statement reads, “proud of the series created together”. Among the interviewed characters, stars such as Serena Williams and Mariah Carey stand out, but there are also those who said no. According to the Wall Street Journal report, Taylor Swift would have refused the invitation of Meghan Markle to participate in her podcast: “The Duchess wrote her a personal letter, but she – through her representative – declined.” It is not known what the theme to be discussed with the artist would have been and what questions would have been asked, but it is certain that the episode would have had enormous visibility.
The Financial Side of the Affair
The American newspaper, although it does not address the economic side of the affair, also tells how Harry and Meghan have had difficulty creating successful content for Netflix, through their production company Archewell. Many proposals were found to be too similar to already famous ideas, so repetitive: among the projects that did not go well there is even an animated show for children, Pearl. In essence, the Wall Street Journal emphasizes how the Sussexes have only succeeded when they have brought their stories to the users: from the series Harry & Meghan to the memoir Spare. Projects that it is rumored have made some people in the Buckingham Palace rooms frown.
