Meghan Markle could be set to sign deal with fashion giant after Spotify axing

Meghan Markle could be eyeing up a money-spinning deal with Dior after her Spotify gig was axed.

The Duchess of Sussex, and seemingly soon to be a Dior representative, is looking to plug a hole left by the cancellation of her Archetypes podcast.

Signing up with hotshot William Morris Endeavour chief of talent Ari Emanuel, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex could be set for a total rebranding to improve their public impression.

Rumours could see the royal head up a deal with Dior, making her the face of the company alongside the likes of Rihanna and Jennifer Lawrence.

An unnamed socialite speaking to the Daily Mail said: "Meghan is all anyone is talking about. There have been rumours for weeks that she's about to sign a deal with Dior which has put the gossip mill into overdrive.

"If she pulls that off, then no one will remember that her silly little podcast got cancelled after one season."

It seems Meghan and Prince Harry were expecting the Spotify deal to be cancelled, with a WME source saying a rebrand of the royal couple had been in the works for "weeks".

They said: "It might be a shock to everyone else but we've been working on the rebranding of Meghan for weeks."

WME's unnamed source also claimed Meghan had been offered "other podcast platforms" to continue the Sussex brand on, with the £15million Spotify deal now scrapped.

Spotify executive Bill Simmons has branded the couple "f***ing grifters", and launched into a tirade against the royal couple, Variety reported.

Mr Simmons said: "You live in f***ing Montecito and you just sell documentaries and podcasts and nobody cares what you have to say about anything unless you talk about the royal family and you just complain about them."

His opinion comes as royal expert Eric Schiffer says the couple "were already on a war footing" because they knew their business with Spotify had concluded, with Dior a "sophisticated" and likely target.
