Meghan Markle is on the brink of securing a major deal, and she’s reportedly “thrilled” about the opportunity, marking her first significant move since her separation from Spotify. According to a new report, the Duchess of Sussex, at 42, is nearing the final stages of negotiating a multimillion-dollar contract with Audible, Amazon’s podcast production partner.
Sources, as reported by Closer UK, indicate that this new venture has the potential to be a defining moment for her Hollywood aspirations. An insider disclosed, “Word of mouth is spreading that it will lead to a huge payout — even bigger than the millions Spotify splashed out,” making Meghan excited about joining the ranks of other influential figures like Michelle and Barack Obama, who signed a deal with Audible in 2022.
While Meghan appears confident about this potential deal, insiders acknowledge that her journey hasn’t been without its challenges. Losing the Spotify deal was a significant setback, impacting her confidence and ego. However, this new opportunity has the potential to turn things around.
The source also revealed that Meghan “feels ready” to work with Audible, though it doesn’t mean she finds it any less daunting. The pressure of the situation keeps her up at night, but she’s aware that the stakes are high. The world’s eyes are on her and Prince Harry, and the industry is cautious after their experience with the Spotify deal, fearing that getting dropped twice could be detrimental to their brand’s reputation.
The former actress, best known for her role as paralegal Rachel Zane on “Suits,” signed with WME CEO Ari Emanuel and his team in April. While her career direction remains uncertain, there have been suggestions that she might be considering a return to acting.
WME represents top talent across various domains in the industry, including writers, filmmakers, actors, producers, and more. Their reach extends to brand licensing, speaking engagements, media production, and events, making them a comprehensive partner for Meghan’s future endeavors. The world awaits with anticipation as Meghan Markle takes her next significant step in her career.
