Meghan, Duchess of Sussex's rebooted 'Archetypes' podcast has reportedly been delayed until next year.

Prince Harry's wife has a TV project she was filming last week, and it's been claimed “scheduling conflicts” are pushing the podcast back as the former 'Suits' actress is also launching her lifestyle brand, American Riviera Orchard.

A source told The Daily Mail's Eden Confidential column: “The relaunch of Meghan's Archetypes podcast got pushed back to 2025."

The 42-year-old businesswoman ditched her ‘Archetypes’ series when her £18 million Spotify deal collapsed last June, but has signed a new content contract with podcast production network Lemonada Media and said back in February that it marked a “fantastic” start to her year.

Meghan - who has son Archie, four, and two-year-old daughter Lilibet with Harry, 39 - said in a statement: “I’m proud to now be able to share that I am joining the brilliant team at Lemonada to continue my love of podcasting.

“Being able to support a female founded company with a roster of thought provoking and highly entertaining podcasts is a fantastic way to kick off 2024.

“Our plan to re-release ‘Archetypes’ so that more people can now have access to it, as well as launching a dynamic new podcast are well in the works.

“I’m so eager to be able to share it soon, and am overjoyed to be joining the Lemonada family.”

Lemonada boss Jessica Cordova Kramer added: “We are beyond honoured that Meghan has trusted us to help democratise access to ‘Archetypes’, and that so many more people around the world will have access to the series soon.

“Meghan’s talent as host, creator and conversationalist is unparalleled and we are thrilled to co-create a new series with her that fosters her approach to creating art that matters.

Lemonada Media is also behind 63-year-old ‘Seinfeld’ actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ ‘Wiser than Me’ series.

Its chief creative officer Stephanie Wittels Wachs said about the deal with Meghan: “As we’ve started development with The Duchess of Sussex, we are blown away by her collaborative spirit and clear vision, along with her deep desire to build compassion and community through this work.

“The Lemonada team felt immediate kinship with Meghan and the Archewell Productions team, and we are delighted to be working together.”

Lemonada Media is also behind ‘Seinfeld’ actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ ‘Wiser than Me’ series.

Spotify executive Bill Simmons was reported to have labelled Harry and Meghan “grifters” in August after the company parted ways with the pair.
