An Archewell Audio spokesperson confirmed the news this week.

A statement said: “We are excited to announce that we are continuing production of Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex’s groundbreaking first podcast series, set to launch this summer.”

“As we all continue to tackle the misinformation era, Archewell Audio has found it important to work with our partners at Spotify to ensure that the digital technologies so many of us use every day are rooted in strong principles of trust and safety.

“We are encouraged by ongoing conversations we’ve had with Spotify on this shared goal and have been working closely with their team – as well as their senior leadership – towards policies, practices, and strategies meant to raise creator awareness, minimise the spread of misinformation, and support transparency.”

The news has riled Piers and he took to Twitter in view of his 7.9 million followers to criticise the Duchess of Sussex.

The journalist raged: “Princess Pinocchio lecturing people on misinformation…beyond parody.”

Piers’ comments have divided users.

Thomas joined the presenter in mocking Meghan, joking: “Okay you twisted my arm. I guess I’ll do it for $25 million! I should get more for a hour of my time. Lol. I’m going to throw up now.” (sic)

User @anonymous_bloke wrote: “By ‘misinformation’ she means anything she either doesn’t agree with, or that’s true but harms the public image that she’s trying to cultivate for herself.”

And Ike echoed: “Does she even have anyone listening to her Piers? I do like the title you’ve given her lol.” (sic)

However, David came to Meghan’s defence saying: “You still being obsessed with her because she once snubbed you… beyond parody.”

Dan pointed out: “You don’t like the woman, you don’t believe her, fine, move on.”


And @Girlonabrompton said: “Just leave them alone.”

In January, Meghan and Harry joined other celebrities in expressing concerns to Spotify after Joe Rogan’s podcast was accused of spreading Covid misinformation.

An Archewell Foundation representative said at the time: “We have continued to express our concerns to Spotify to ensure changes to its platform are made to help address this public health crisis.

“We look to Spotify to meet this moment and are committed to continuing our work together as it does.”

Following the backlash, Spotify began adding content advisory labels to podcasts which feature Covid discussions and published its platform rules.

Since signing a deal with Spotify in December 2020, Meghan and Prince Harry have only released one episode.

The Christmas special featured appearances from A-listers including Elton John, James Corden and Tyler Perry.
