Prince Harry and Meghan Markle cut ties with top executives at Archewell
Los Angeles, California - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are shaking things up at the top of Archewell in 2023 as the couple shifts to a new direction for their content.
Per Variety, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have parted ways with producer Ben Browning, who served as the head of internal content at Archewell Productions.
Browning served as an executive producer on Netflix's Harry & Meghan. His contract is set to expire later this year, and the reasons behind the decision not to renew remain unknown.
Fara Taylor, who worked as the marketing campaign lead for the couple's Netflix docuseries, as well as Markle's podcast Archetypes and Harry's memoir Spare, will also be leaving her position in the company this year.
"They played a critical role in helping to tell the stories of the Duke and Duchess thus far and the couple remain hugely grateful for their support on those vital 'look back' projects, as they now look forward," said the Archewell head of communications of Browning and Taylor.
With Browning's exit, Archewell looks to prioritize scripted content in the coming year.
The royal pair does have another docuseries in the pipeline, though, as Heart of Invictus, a miniseries spotlighting participants of 2022's Invictus Games, is expected to release in 2023.
