In the debut episode of her podcast Archetypes, Meghan Markle showed listeners a whole new side of herself. The Duchess of Sussex chatted with longtime pal Serena Williams about ambition, being a mom, and one particularly upsetting memory from life as a working royal. With more episodes on the way, Buckingham Palace is reportedly bracing for what’s next, according to one royal expert.
“I’m told Buckingham Palace aides were most definitely not keeping calm, nor carrying on after the show’s premiere on Tuesday, worried about what else might be shared over the next 12 weeks,” royal insider and Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie wrote in his recent Yahoo! column. Along with the palace’s concerns about what Meghan might discuss in her forthcoming podcast episodes, Scobie noted that some aides have since spoken out regarding the mom of two’s claims about a fire that occurred in baby Archie’s room during Meghan and Harry’s tour of South Africa.

“Two aides have already pushed back on Meghan’s ‘precise recollection’ of events in South Africa – one told a tabloid that it was a smoking heater, not a fire (does it matter?) and another claimed it is ‘unfair’ to share such stories when the Royal Household cannot comment,” the royal insider wrote.
When it comes to the royal family’s fraught relationship with Meghan and Harry, there always seems to be an underlying concern about what the couple will share regarding their experiences in The Firm. But as far as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are concerned, the two seem to be thriving in their new life in California. We’re simply looking forward to the next episodes of Meghan’s podcast.
