Earlier this month, Spotify confirmed the royal pair are to produce and host podcasts.

This follows the exclusive multi-year production deal for TV programming with Netflix which they signed in September.

They are free to move into the entertainment world having stepped back from royal duties earlier this year.

Under a multi-year agreement, the couple's newly formed Archewell Audio will produce programming that "uplifts and entertains audiences around the world" and features "diverse perspectives and voices," Spotify said in a statement.

The podcasts will be available free through Spotify, the company that leads the streaming music market.

Experts claims the Spotify tie-up is a big step towards building what could become a $1billion business empire.

"What we love about podcasting is that it reminds all of us to take a moment and to really listen, to connect to one another without distraction," the couple said in a joint statement.
