In the wake of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's lucrative Spotify contract being canceled, the hits keep on coming for the former royal couple.
According to Breitbart, it has now been alleged that Markle "faked" some of the 12 episodes of her "Archetypes" podcast.
Notably, the two were already under fire for only producing a fraction of the content that Spotify wanted in its original deal, and now it looks to be possible, according to what Breitbart called "credible reports," that she faked some of the little bit of actual content creation she did for the streaming giant.
Seems the queen of fake even faked her podcast.

According to Newsweek, “Andy Scott, a former editor at Gimlet Media, which produced Archetypes,” confirmed this report. On the Twitterz, he wrote, “We did occasionally have producers do interviews, though never the main ones, and we never edited her asking questions into interviews that producers conducted.”
A report from PodNews revealed that some of the so-called interviews with her celebrity friends were actually done by Markle's staffers.
The New York Post added:
Speculation that Markle doesn’t directly interview her guests started circulating when writer Allison Yarrow shared on Instagram in August that she was “excited to be included in the visionary series.”
Yet the post showed Yarrow posing in front of a sign for the audio production house Gimlet Media — and included thanks to an “Archetypes” producer for being “an excellent interviewer.”
Social media reacted immediately to the news that Markle and Prince Harry's media company was booted from Spotify.

One of Spotify's top executives, Bill Simmons, slammed the couple immediately after the split-up was announced, calling them "f***ing grifters."
"I wish I had been involved in the ‘Meghan and Harry leave Spotify’ negotiation," Simmons said on "The Bill Simmons Podcast." "'The f***ing grifters.' That's the podcast that we should've launched with them."
One Twitter user wrote, "Haven’t followed any of their sad song like most I know. Maybe this is the beginning of Karma for them!"
Another Twitter user added: "Guys, your 15 minutes of fame are over now that you are not a royal. Please just go away."
Clearly, Prince Harry and Markle are having a hard time garnering support, and continue to fall out of public favor.
