Taylor Swift said no to appearing on Meghan Markle’s podcast despite getting a letter from her. Spotify ended its $17.5 million deal with Sussexes after one season of “Archetypes” last year. Prince Harry and Meghan signed content deals with Spotify and Netflix after leaving the royal family. The three-year deal was ended after Archewell Audio did not meet productivity benchmarks for payout, according to a June 15th report from The Wall Street Journal. Spotify executives were frustrated with Archewell’s slow progress on Meghan’s show. Meghan Markle asked Swift to appear on her show. Taylor Swift declined the invitation through a representative.
If that is not enough, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are being put over a barrel at Netflix and they’re apparently on the verge of losing millions unless they pivot. According to The Sun, Netflix honchos have recently had a conversation with the ex-Royal couple, supposedly telling them to make better, must-see content — or risk not getting the rest of their $100-million-plus contract. Meg and Harry must produce higher quality shows, docs, and/or movies to claim the rest of their bag and if they don’t, Netflix is apparently prepared to cut their deal short and refuse to pay them out in full. According to an unnamed source, Netflix was happy with the results of their bombshell doc but has been disappointed about everything after that.
