The announcement also debuted Archetypes’ brand new look, with the originally green lettering and colour scheme replaced with pink tones and the Lemonada logo. 

In February 2024, Meghan confirmed that she had officially cut ties with Spotify and signed a new podcasting deal with Lemonada Media.

“I’m proud to now be able to share that I am joining the brilliant team at Lemonada to continue my love of podcasting,” the 42-year-old said at the time.

“Being able to support a female-founded company with a roster of thought-provoking and highly entertaining podcasts is a fantastic way to kick off 2024.”

The mother-of-two added that her podcast Archetypes would be re-released through Lemonada, and that a “dynamic new podcast” was also “well in the works”.

In 2020, Meghan and the Duke of Sussex signed a multi-year 32 million-dollar partnership with Spotify and their production company, Archewell Audio. with the goal of building a “community through shared experience, narratives and values”.

In 2022, 12 episodes of Archetypes featuring the likes of Serena Williams, Mariah Carey, and Paris Hilton were released on Spotify.

However, just a year later it was revealed that all involved parties had “mutually agreed to part ways” and that Meghan was looking forward to developing “more content for the Archetypes audience on another platform”.

Lemonada CEO and co-founder Jessica Cordova Kramer said that the business felt “beyond honoured” to be trusted by the royal to “help democratise access” to the Archetypes podcast. 

“Meghan’s talent as host, creator, and conversationalist is unparalleled and we are thrilled to co-create a new series with her that fosters her approach to creating art that matters.”
