Meghan Markle Says Listeners Can Expect ‘The Real Me’ On New Podcast

Spotify/Meghan Markle

Meghan Markle has debuted the first episode of her new podcast, Archetypes!

In a promo for her new Spotify podcast, the Duchess of Sussex shared what her listeners should expect. In the promo, Meghan is sitting on a couch in front of a microphone and shares: “People should expect the real me in this, and probably the me that they’ve never gotten to know — certainly not in the past few years, where everything is through the lens of the media as opposed to, ‘Hey, it’s me.’ ”

“I’m just excited to be myself and talk and be unfiltered and…yeah, it’s fun,” she adds.

Meghan’s first guest on the podcast was tennis champion Serena Williams. The two have been longtime friends and talked about the double standard for men and women when it comes to ambition.

“I loved talking about so many important topics with my dear friend Meghan as her first guest on #archetypes for @spotify!” Serena captioned an Instagram photo featuring Meghan and her daughter, Olympia. “It’s out now and worth the listen, especially if you’re ambitious.”

In the episode, Meghan got personal about her own experience with ambition and the negative feedback she received when she began dating Prince Harry. Reflecting on public life as Prince Harry’s partner, she shared, “apparently ambition is a terrible, terrible thing, for a woman that is — according to some. So, since I’ve felt the negativity behind it, it’s really hard to un-feel it. I can’t unsee it, either, in the millions of girls and women who make themselves smaller — so much smaller — on a regular basis.”

Meghan’s new podcast, Archetypes, can be found on Spotify.
