2020 has been nothing but a significant turnover for the most Tweeted royalty couple of the year. From ceasing royal duties to moving to California this year, the future has been looking good for both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, ever since.
Some of the couple’s highlights would be when they launched various creative ventures and begun legal actions against British tabloids over privacy violations. They have also signed a deal with streaming giant Netflix in September to produce “impactful” films and series. Continued with another amazing news of Markle narrated a wildlife documentary Disney+.
Previously, Spotify has signed many A-listers podcasters including Barack and Michelle Obama, and Kim Kardashian West, with a total of 144 million subscribers. Even though there is no statement about how much the deal with the royals was worth, but with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex next in line, Spotify’s subscribers have jumped 2% on Tuesday morning after the news broke.
The young couple will be hosting and producing their podcast all by themselves.
“What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said in a statement. In an introductory trailer, the prince introduces himself: “Hi guys, I’m Harry.” He says their podcasts will “bring forward different perspectives and voices that perhaps you haven’t heard before.” Markle adds that the podcasts will “celebrate kindness and compassion.”
Spotify the company was launched in Sweden in 2008. The company describes itself as the world’s most popular audio streaming subscription service and we definitely second that.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex may live in California, but the power of their voices rests in their status as citizens of the world.” Dawn Ostroff, the chief content and advertising business officer of Spotify said in a statement to AFP.
With the holiday is just around the corner, Harry and Markle will be releasing a heartwarming holiday special this month, featuring stories of hope and compassion from their inspirational guests. The year 2020 has been a challenge for us all, which makes it particularly important to hear everybody’s stories.
“So many people have been through so much pain this year,” Harry said. In a way, it acts as a reminder of how interconnected we all are. The couple’s first complete series is set to be available next year.
Oh, last but not least, get ready with a box of tissues, pillow, and blanket when the podcasts are available on Spotify soon. You might need it! We can assure you of that!
