The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were in heavy debt due to outstanding obligations to the Spotify service. The $ 25 million deal was signed in 2020 and involved Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle producing a series of podcasts about their lives and relationships.
However, the couple recorded just one 35-minute podcast for Spotify. In addition, a show featuring Harry and Meghan was planned for release this year, but due to the pandemic, the birth of a child, and going on maternity leave, the idea was not implemented. As a result, the management of the streaming service was disappointed in the cooperation with the couple, and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were left with a large debt, reports The Sun.
According to royal writer Phil Dampier, Harry and Meghan have made too many commitments.
“People who pay them a lot of money will expect something in return,” Dampier said.
