Meghan Markle is reportedly set to 'step away' from her collaborations with Prince Harry after a series of unsuccessful ventures.
The UK's Bella magazine has suggested Meghan will focus on solo projects and her personal brand, rather than joint projects with Harry, with the axing of the Spotify deal reportedly behind that decision.
"Meghan feels she’ll have better success if she takes the time to work on projects alone without Harry – even though he always gives her his full support," a source told the magazine.
They add that Meghan's recent signing with Hollywood talent agency WME was to ensure she is seen as a "power player" in her own right.
MailOnline also reports that Meghan is preparing for a "string of commercial endorsements in fields meaningful to her, such as food, wellness, fashion and therapy" following the axing of her podcast.
She is also looking set to publish her own book, "most likely with a feminist angle", following the success of Harry's memoir Spare.
According to the website, Spotify axed its deal with Meghan and Harry due to "the lack of content, not the podcast viewing figures".
Talent agent Jeremy Zimmer also told the publication, "Turns out Meghan Markle was not a great audio talent or necessarily any kind of talent. You know, just because you're famous doesn't make you great at something."
Meghan and Harry reportedly believe they've had a stint of bad luck in trying to make it outside of the UK.
"The word is that they think they've been really unlucky," an insider added, claiming the pair believe the Queen and Prince Philip's passing has made it tougher to find success.
