Meghan Markle teases social media return, Netflix series addresses removed – The Hollywood Reporter


Meghan Markle could return to Instagram.

In a candid interview with New York Magazine’s The cup posted on Monday, Markle quickly teased, “Do you want to know a secret?” before revealing: “I come back… on Instagram. Markle noted that it was being considered, “Especially now, with Archetypes go out.”

Archetypes is Markle’s recently launched Spotify podcast, which examines the story behind the stereotypes that are leveled against women. The podcast is the first series released under a production deal between it and Prince Harry’s Archewell Audio and Spotify’s Gimlet Media.

Markle spoke with Serena Williams in the first episode of Archetypes, where they both talked about fulfilling their professional obligations despite their children being injured or in danger. Coming Archetypes guests will include Constance Wu, Issa Rae, Lisa Ling, Margaret Cho, Mariah Carey and Ziwe.

Prior to her engagement and eventual wedding to Prince Harry, Markle maintained a lifestyle blog, The Tigerand, according to The cup, has amassed 3 million followers on Instagram, where she shared snapshots of her life. But the account and blog were then abandoned amid her romance with Harry. Markle has addressed the “big adjustment” of shutting down her social media profiles.

“It was a big adjustment — a huge adjustment to go from that kind of autonomy to a different life,” Markle said. Markle and Prince Harry would share updates through the @KensingtonRoyal accounts, which also provided updates on Prince William and Kate Middleton, but she explained they had to follow strict rules.

“There is literally a structure whereby if you want to post photos of your child, as a family member, you first have to give them to the Royal Rota,” she explained of the pool of British media. “Why would I give the very people who call my kids the N-word a picture of my child before I can share it with the people who love my child? You tell me how it makes sense and then I’ll play this game,” she said.

She and Harry would go on to launch their own @sussexroyal Instagram account, where they didn’t play the “swap game” and shared their own posts. The account eventually ceased updating after they retired from royal duties.

Despite teasing a comeback on social media, the story later suggests the decision may not be finalized after all, writing: “Meghan would later relay that she was no longer sure she would return actually on Instagram.”

Later in the story, Markle talks about upcoming projects via Archewell Productions’ Netflix deal, including the recently dropped animated series. pearl.

“There’s not much you can do when a company and a division change their slate,” Markle said of the show. “And there’s also not much you can do when, even if you think the project is great, the media will report it as if it was just my project.”

Markle also addresses speculation that there is a possible docuseries about her and Harry’s love story in the works, with Liz Garbus attached to direct. “What’s so funny is that I’m not trying to be suspicious. I don’t read any press. So I don’t know what is confirmed. I will tell you that Liz Garbus is amazing. Liz Garbus also worked on pearl“, Markle said. Markle added that she would leave it to Netflix and its publicist to decide what can be shared on future projects.
