Following her exit from the royal family, Meghan Markle is displaying her entrepreneurial side to the world. Along with her husband Prince Harry, she has laid the foundation of Archewell Productions and Archewell Audio. Under Archewell Productions, the couple will be creating shows and docuseries. Netflix is their first client as they have signed a multimillion-dollar deal with the streaming platform.
Meanwhile, under Archewell audio, they are releasing podcasts and audio-related content. Meghan Markle is successfully running a Spotify podcast called Archetypes to discuss the stereotypes and labels that are haunting women. It was only last year that she invested in a start-up called Clevr Blends. You might be surprised to know that Meghan has been inclined toward business and entrepreneurship since her childhood.
Meghan Markle launched her first business idea at school
While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in November last year, Meghan Markle made a revelation about starting a business in school. Speaking about her childhood, the Duchess mentioned how she would earn some money at the age of nine by selling scrunchies to her schoolmates. Markle recalled going to the fabric stores during holidays and buying all the other stuff, including elastic, at an affordable price.
“I would ask my mom to take me down to Downtown LA, where you can buy all the remnants of fabric really affordably. So, I would get some of the remnants, buy the elastic, and tie the knot,” the former actress revealed on the show.
During The Ellen DeGeneres Show, the 41-year-old mainly discussed her book The Bench. Released in June 2021, the novel became the New York Times bestselling children’s book. The Bench beautifully described the relationship between a father and son. Meghan Markle initially wrote the book as a poem to her husband Prince Harry and son Archie.
Talking about books, Prince Harry will be soon coming up with his own memoir Spare. It is expected to throw a lot of truth bombs and reveal some scathing details about King Charles III and the House of Windsor.
