‘THEY WERE BEMUSED’ Prince Harry & Meghan Markle ‘asked for secret talks’ with Spiderman couple Tom Holland & Zendaya after rumoured meeting
PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle asked for secret talks with Spider-Man couple Tom Holland and Zendaya despite them never meeting, a source has claimed.
The Duke and Duchess were eager to rub shoulders with the Spider-Man: No Way Home stars whose recent release took £1.27billion at the box office.
An old friend of Harry has revealed that the couple contacted Tom and Zendaya out of the blue and asked them to meet.
He told Mail Online: “Tom and Zendaya were rather bemused, from what I hear.
“Tom had never met Harry or spoken to him in his life, so didn’t know what they wanted.”
However, the two couples did meet up in secret at the Sussex’s sprawling, nine-bedroom Montecito home.
The source claimed: “The meeting took place.”
It’s thought that the royals may have been eager to chat to American Zendaya and Brit Tom to persuade them to take part in one of their media projects.
It comes after The Sun revealed earlier this week that Spotify is taking Harry and Meghan’s £18million podcast project “into its own hands”.
The streaming giant is thought to be hiring a host of in-house producers to finally help deliver content.
They had been waiting more than a year for the runaway royals to produce material as part of their mega-money deal.
Spotify said it was looking forward to a “full-scale” launch of shows in 2021 – but nothing appeared.
Now bosses at the streaming platform are stepping in to help Harry and Meghan deliver the goods.
They are recruiting new in-house staff to work with Harry and Meghan’s Archewell Audio for a show that features “the voices of high profile women.”
The jobs are being offered to applicants on short six-month contracts based in Los Angeles.
Harry and Meghan’s only podcast effort so far has been a 35-minute ‘holiday special’ in December 2020, featuring celebrity pals such as Elton John and James Corden.
Fans have been questioning when their so-called “full-scale launch” of episodes would be coming.
With only one show under their belts, the streaming platform has so far paid the couple £500,000 for each minute.
