Taylor Swift Declines Meghan Markle’s Podcast Invitation

Pop star Taylor Swift turned down an invitation from Meghan Markle to appear on her podcast, “Archetypes,” which has now been canceled. Meghan Markle personally contacted Swift, but the singer’s response was reportedly cold. Swift chose not to reply directly and instead declined the invitation through a representative.

The refusal contributes to the recent struggles of the podcast following Meghan and Prince Harry’s decision to cut ties with Spotify. The royal couple ended their agreement with the streaming platform only three years into a $20 million deal.

Sources indicate that the split with Spotify was influenced by the podcast’s lack of engaging content. Despite a brief stint at the top of the charts, executives believed that the podcast did not meet the expectations set by the significant investment.

Moreover, the production of the podcast was hindered by Meghan’s frequent last-minute requests for changes. She even involved senior Spotify executives to pressure producers into making modifications.

Prince Harry also faced challenges in developing his podcast concept. He explored topics such as veterans’ issues, misinformation, and his unique perspective as a newcomer to living in America. Harry even suggested interviewing figures like Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, and Mark Zuckerberg about their childhood traumas, leaving executives puzzled.

The cancellation of the podcast deal adds financial stress to the couple, who relinquished their senior royal duties in early 2020. With a lavish estate in Montecito and significant security expenses, they continue to face financial hurdles.

While Taylor Swift’s rejection may appear as a snub to Meghan Markle, it also sheds light on the challenges encountered by the couple in their endeavors to establish a presence in the podcasting industry.
