Meghan Markle May Use Her New Podcast 'Archetypes' To 'Get Even' With The Royal Family, Journalist Claims
After months of not releasing any Spotify content, Meghan Markle recently announced that her podcast series called "Archetypes" will be coming out this summer — and it will most likely cause a headache for Prince Harry's family.
"Drum-roll, please. It was part of an £18 million contract and has been nearly two years in the making but, hallelujah, it is here at last. No, not the latest stretch of Crossrail or a new cancer ward for the little kiddies, but the Duchess of Sussex's much-trumpeted Spotify podcast," journalist Jan Moir said, adding that the Duchess, 40, could use the podcast to "get even" with the brood.
"Called 'Archetypes,' the series will be launching soon, with Meghan promising to use the broadcasts to look at the way women are portrayed in the media and 'the labels that try to hold them back,'" Moir continued. "Uh-oh. I think I can see where this is going."
Moir shared that Meghan should re-work the title to, "The One Where I Get Even With Every Bad B**ch Who Ever B**ched About Me."
Last month, the former TV star gave some details about the new endeavor. "This is ‘Archetypes’ — the podcast where we dissect, explore and subvert the labels that try to hold women back," she said. "This is how we talk about women: the words that raise our girls, and how the media reflects women back to us. But where do these stereotypes come from? And how do they keep showing up in defining our lives?"
This week, the mom-of-two filed to trademark "Archetypes," which caused a stir. "The Duchess of Sussex's latest legal move is likely to raise eyebrows," Daily Mail editor Richard Eden wrote on Twitter after the news was revealed.
"Meghan could face a legal challenge from companies that use the word in their names, such as the skincare and cleaning products business Archetypes, which has already established a trademark," he wrote in an article. "Victoria Beckham fought a similar linguistic battle in 2002. The former pop singer known as Posh Spice tried to prevent the Championship football team Peterborough United from trademarking their club's nickname 'Posh,' arguing that the word was 'inexorably associated' with her."
