Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Spotify deal ends, sparking rumors about their Netflix partnership, but signs of a PR comeback emerge. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their podcasting venture in December 2020, alongside a lucrative Netflix deal, suggesting a promising financial future. However, content delivery was delayed until August 2022, and now the two parties are parting ways.
Adding to the controversy, Bill Simmons, head of podcast innovation and monetization at Spotify, referred to the couple as “f****** grifters” on his podcast, expressing regret for not being involved in their Spotify negotiation. Despite these setbacks, there are indications of a possible rebound for the Sussexes. Reports suggest Meghan might be on the verge of a significant new deal with fashion house Dior.
Surprisingly, The Mail on Sunday, a newspaper that Meghan and Harry have sued multiple times, published a favorable article titled “Is Meghan about to become the mega-bucks Duchess of Dior?” The article quotes a source from WME, Meghan’s new celebrity agency, marking a notable shift in communication, told Miami Herald.
This development is particularly intriguing given that Meghan previously criticized the publication and described it as a divisive force. The positive coverage could enhance Meghan’s public image and suggests that she is attracting attention from Hollywood, leading to additional offers.
A potential collaboration with Dior would alleviate the pressure on Meghan, providing both a source of income and an opportunity to establish a successful partnership without being weighed down by past royal controversies. Furthermore, it would restore a sense of accomplishment for Meghan, placing her back in the spotlight of achievement.
While rumors circulate about the future of the Sussexes’ Netflix deal, no official confirmation has been provided by the company. However, the potential alignment with Dior may offer Meghan the freedom to pursue new opportunities and regain a sense of professional triumph.
