Prince Harry reportedly intended to interview Donald Trump, Mark Zuckerberg, and Vladimir Putin for his show days after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they had terminated their contract with Spotify.
Bloomberg reports that ''Harry would interview a procession of controversial guests, such as Vladimir Putin, Mark Zuckerberg and Donald Trump, about their early formative years and how those experiences resulted in the adults they are today.''
The Duke of Sussex proposed the concept of interviewing the aforementioned contentious individuals about their early formative years and how those events contributed to the adults they are today, according to Ashley Carman, writing for Bloomberg's Newsletter.
She wrote, "Harry spoke with multiple producers and production houses, these people said, to discuss possible shows. Along the way, Harry listened to various ideas from others but mostly stuck by his own — including one about childhood trauma."
Carman claims that Prince Harry also desired to discuss religion with Pope Francis when hosting him.
The Bloomberg article's author claimed that the Duke's proposals were not seen as workable since figures like Putin and Zuckerberg were not well-known for delivering in-depth talks about the subjects they were enthusiastic about.
Numerous people attacked the second son of King Charles on social media for suggesting that he interview Trump and Putin. The two companies announced last week that their multi-million dollar relationship with Spotify had come to an end.
Since signing the contract in 2020 for an estimated $20 million, the couple has only produced one series under their Archewell Audio podcast banner.
Due to her interviews with powerful women, Markle's podcast, "Archetypes," has topped podcast charts for the outlet in several markets.
However, the agreement is coming to an end, according to a joint statement from the two parties.
According to the statement, "Spotify and Archewell Audio have mutually agreed to part ways and are proud of the series that we made together."
Trade publication Variety said on Thursday that Spotify had anticipated more content, citing an unnamed source. Variety said that the Duchess of Sussex and Harry were trying to find a new outlet for their work.
