The Duchess of Sussex had planned to release her next episode on Tuesday, but her podcast has been delayed while the royal family mourns.

Royal commentator Neil Sean told his YouTube followers that although Meghan has four podcast episodes ready to go, there’s ‘a lot of work going on behind the scenes’.

“According to a very good source, they’re going through it all with a very fine tooth comb to make sure there’s nothing derogatory, hurtful or indeed that could cause yet another explosive time-bomb,” he revealed.

“You could look at this two ways really; is Meghan changing her tune to now try and re-fit back into the family that she left behind?”

“Or indeed is she having second thoughts because she doesn’t want to create any more trouble?”

Meghan’s hotly anticipated podcast climbed to the top of the charts when the first episode was released in August, with many listeners tuning in to hear what she had to say.

Archetypes is described as an interview series to ‘dissect, explore and subvert the labels that try to hold women back”. Choosing to talk to prominent women about their ‘labels’, Meghan has released episodes featuring actress Mindy Kaling, singer Mariah Carey and retired tennis player Serena Williams.

Allison Langdon speaks out about Meghan Markle

This comes after Today host Allison Langdon made a brutal on-air admission about her feelings towards Meghan.

Speaking on her Archetypes podcast, Meghan spoke of her frustration of having to attend a royal engagement after her son Archie's nursery caught on fire during a visit to South Africa.

Her son was not in there at the time, but Meghan said she was "shaken".

She also spoke about the challenges of being a woman with ambition.

"I don't ever remember personally feeling the negative connotation behind the word ambitious until I started dating my now husband. Apparently, ambition is a terrible, terrible thing, for a woman, that is," she said.

She added on the podcast some believed ambitious women "have an agenda".

"You must be calculating or selfish or aggressive, or a climber," she said.

Speaking to Sport and Aged Care Minister Anika Wells about the podcast, Ally admitted Meghan rubbed her the wrong way and there was "just something" she didn't like.

"I really try to like Meghan Markle; I think some of the arguments she makes about ambition are very true, but there's just something, you know?" Ally said.
