The multi-year agreement stipulates that the production company “Archewell Audio” will create exclusive programming for Spotify. Among the content, there will be podcasts presented and produced by the dukes of sussexwith the overall goal of “building a community through shared experiences, narratives, and values.”

The announcement of the agreement was in 2020 and a 40-minute chapter was even broadcast, entitled “The Holiday Special”, who talked about his son, Archie Harrison. Other celebrities, such as Elton John or James Corden, also participated in that episode. Following the situation caused by the global pandemic of covid-19 and the search for greater information transparency, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to temporarily stop their activity.
