MEGHAN and Harry have revealed the issues they will tackle in their podcasts after moving to seek copyright protection from their new entertainment empire.
They’ve just signed a money-spinning deal with streaming giant Spotify and eight days ago filed documents with the US Patent and Trademark Office to protect Archewell Audio.

The couple lodged documents to prevent others cashing in on the name.
US copyright attorneys are already looking over papers from the couple asking for exclusive rights to their charity Archewell and Archewell Foundation.
And official papers filed regarding Archewell Audio revealed it will provide: “Downloadable podcasts, audio programs, and audio books, all in the field of current and topical events, education, science, literature, racial justice, gender equity, environmental stewardship, youth empowerment, health, mental health, and commentary on topics of current and general interest.”
The application also covers CDs, audiobooks and live stage performances and also content via “satellite, global computer networks, websites, wireless devices, mobile web applications, webcasts, and on-demand streaming media”.
Former blogger Meghan has also moved to secure legal protection that will allow her to pen fiction novels via Archewell.
One of the clauses seeks the right to pen “fiction and non-fiction books on a variety of topics” and produce “general feature magazines and printed periodicals”.
Former Suits actor Meghan used to pen a popular blog called the The Tig before she met Harry that covered health, travel, food and fashion.
‘CALLING AT HEART’
And one royal commentator has said that she has a “calling at heart” to be a writer.
During the Royally Obsessed podcast, Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito discussed the Duchess of Sussex’s previous written work on food.
Ms Fiorito stated that Meghan demonstrated a talent for descriptive writing.
And Ms Bowie read an extract from The Tig which ran: “Whether you are going full veg for your Thanksgiving or opting to pepper in new meatless sides this hug in a bowl has your name written all over it.”
Ms Fiortio replied: “I mean how do you say no to a hug in a bowl?”
Ms Bowie continued: “I have had so much fun re-reading what she has written on The Tig. I don’t know why but it is so enlightening to me.”
Ms Fiortio responded: “She is a food writer at heart for sure.I feel like this was her calling.”
The royal couple have revealed their charity will fund food kitchens in disaster zones as its first major project.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have announced their non-profit, which was set up eight months ago, has now joined forces with the World Central Kitchen which feeds people in disaster-stricken areas.
