Prince Harry is overjoyed that Meghan Markle has released the first two episodes of her Spotify podcast Archetypes. According to a source close to the former Suits actress, Harry, 37, even arranged a get-together to congratulate Meghan, 40, on the new show’s early success.
The source said that Harry is very happy with how well Meghan’s podcast has done. “Her first episode went to number one on the Spotify charts, everyone is so proud of her, especially Harry.
“He even arranged a little surprise celebration with a few close friends to toast to her success, he’s her number one fan,” they said. Harry had even made a surprise appearance during the first episode, where he simply popped in to say, “hi.”
The source began by saying that Meghan wants to create an “identity separate from the Royal family,” with Archetypes. “It’s complicated because it is part of her life, Harry will always be who he is, so it would be awkward to make no mention of it,” they explained.
“It’s so important to her that she’s known as more than a princess, not only for herself but also for her kids, that’s why this podcast series is so close to her heart.”
Aside from being happy that it was a success, they also stated that Meghan feels “relief” because she “poured her heart and soul into” the show.
Meghan speaks with various women about how they are perceived in the Archetypes podcast. So far, she’s hosted Serena Williams discussing being “ambitious” and Mariah Carey discussing being a “diva.”
In addition to speaking with the iconic women, the Duchess of Sussex has shared some personal details, such as a terrifying story about a fire breaking out in Archie’s nursery while she and Harry were at a royal engagement.
She did become defensive during her conversation with Mariah when the singer joked that she has “diva moments,” but she later admitted that she misinterpreted her comment. “She meant diva as a compliment, but I misinterpreted it,” she explained after the interview.
