Meghans announcement was to steal spotlight of Caribbean tour – royal fans

Meghan Markle released the name of her upcoming Spotify podcast in a bid to "steal the spotlight" from William and Kate's Caribbean tour according to royal fans.

The podcast – called Archetypes – will launch this summer and will be hosted by Meghan Markle. She'll speak to historians, experts and women who have experienced being typecast.

In a trailer of the Archewell Audio project released today, Meghan said: "This is how we talk about women: the words that raise our girls, and how the media reflects women back to us… but where do these stereotypes come from?

"And how do they keep showing up and defining our lives?"

But some people claim that the announcement was made to overshadow the royal tour.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are currently on a royal tour of Belize, Jamaica, and the Bahamas in celebration of Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee.

"Meghan steals spotlight and overshadowed William and Kate's Caribbean tour with new podcast announcement," wrote one suspicious Royal fan on Twitter.

But another thought that the announcement inadvertently took the heat off the couple, who have suffered a series of PR gaffes.

The person wrote: "If the others were doing such high profile work. Meghan dropping a tease wouldn’t effect them at all.

"Meghan project would be completely ignored. She (Kate) should be thankful Meghan is taking some of the spotlight off what a disaster that tour is turning out to be."

Another person, in response to news about Archetype, said: "Meghan’s power, deflecting attention from the ill fated tour."

Another person added: "She (Kate) should be happy for any distraction from the bleeding corpse of the royal tour of the Caribbean. On the contrary, Meghan gets less attention announcing now than she would when there are no distractions."

Whilst in the home of Bob Marley, Trenchtown, Kingston Jamaica in what the BBC described as what some would think is "some sort of white-saviour parody," Kate and William fleetingly made contact with the outstretched fingers of children, pushing through a wire fence.

The first engagement, in Belize, was hurriedly cancelled following a protest. Another protest rose up on the day they arrived in Jamaica.

As well as this, the Jamaican Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, declared, as the couple stood mutely beside him, that he would rather not have the Queen as head of state any more.

Meghan and Harry signed a lucrative deal with the audio streaming giant Spotify to host and produce podcasts, estimated to be worth around £18 million in late 2020.

Last week, a spokesperson for Archewell Audio confirmed its first series would air in the summer and that they had been working closely with Spotify towards policies aimed at minimising the spread of misinformation.

A spokesperson for Meghan has been contacted for comment.
