Meghan Markle latest news – Prince Harry & Duchess WON’T quit Spotify despite covid fake news after signing £18m deal


PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle WON’T quit Spotify despite a Covid fake news row engulfing the platform.

Last week US musician Neil Young removed his music from the platform in protest at it hosting content by podcast superstar Joe Rogan that contained disinformation about Covid-19 vaccines.

Young was followed by singer Joni Mitchell who removed her music in solidarity with Young, triggering a wave of debate about whether other high profile figures – including Prince Harry & Duchess of Sussex – would remove their songs as well.

Rogan’s podcast ‘The Joe Rogan Experience’ is easily the most-popular show on Spotify after he joined in a £100m deal, but he has repeatedly been accused of using it to encourage his “fit and healthy” fans not to get the vaccine.

The woke royals were branded “hypocrites” for not taking action themselves as were accused of keeping quiet on the matter to protect their own £18 million deal with the music streaming app.

But in a statement the pair now claim they have previously spoken with Spotify bosses about their concerns but insisted they remain “committed” to sharing content through the tech giant.

That said, the pair have still only managed to produce one podcast for Spotify, despite their multi-million pound deal – a move that has forced the company to take the Sussexes’ output “into their own hands”.
