Meghan Markle could reveal significant surprises in her upcoming podcast.

The Duchess of Sussex announced earlier this year that she has signed a podcast deal with Lemonada Media.

The deal sees Meghan's previous podcast, Archetypes, move to the Lemonda's platform.

The duchess will also produce a new podcast as part of her agreement but a title for the project has not yet been released.

However, a source has claimed that Meghan will use her new podcast to share stories about her life.

The duchess is reportedly keen to "do some inner reflecting" on the podcast and this could include discussing her time in the UK as a working member of the Royal Family.

The source told US Weekly regarding Meghan's new podcast: "[She] wants to do mostly philanthropic-type content.

"She considers herself too academic for entertainment only. She doesn’t want the podcast to be celebrity-driven, though she’ll have some stars on."

The insider added that the Duchess wants to "do some inner reflecting" on the podcast and "will share stories" from her own life.

In February, Meghan said regarding the podcast partnership: "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."

Meghan's previous podcast deal with Spotify was cancelled in 2023 after executives at the company were left underwhelmed by the Archetypes podcast.
