Today marks Meghan Markle’s final episode in her podcast, Archetypes, but the Duchess of Sussex took it upon herself to make an unexpected change, taking her listeners by surprise.

In this week’s episode called ‘Man-ifesting A Cultural Shift’, we see the Duchess of Sussex chat to three men – Trevor Noah, Andy Cohen and Judd Apatow – to "investigate, dissect, and subvert the labels that try to hold women back".

The finale's twist came about after the Duchess’s husband, Prince Harry, offered his words of wisdom, which ultimately led to her shaking up the podcast’s typical structure.

Although each episode of Archetypes so far has focused on demystifying labels that “hold women back”, Meghan explained why it was so important to have men on the podcast series too.

“It was important to us that women have a space to share their authentic and complicated complex and dynamic experiences to be heard and to be understood,” she said. “But through that process it also occurred to me, and truth be told at the suggestion of my husband, that if we really want to shift how we think about gender and the limiting labels that we separate people into, then we have to broaden the conversation.”

Meghan then goes on to explain that by actively including men in that conversation, it opens the discussion up to include how men feel about these topics of conversations too – whether it be stereotypes, labels or life experiences – and the importance of allyship.

After it's debut, fans of the podcast turned to social media to praise Meghan and Harry for the major change. One user said: “I raise a toast to the Duchess #MeghanMarkIe on a brilliant season as the #Archetypes podcast comes to a close. Strong work.”

Someone else tweeted: “Yes! One for the men. Thank you Duchess for this and everything you and your guests have shared on this Archetypes Podcast.”

Another added: "So, so pleasantly surprised by the final episode of Archetypes.”

Also on the finale episode, listeners heard Meghan joke that her chat with Andy Cohen was doubling up as an audition for the “Real Housewives Of Montecito” to which he replied, “You don’t have to audition, we will build the show around you.” (Sidenote: we would 100% watch this).

And, if you can’t wait until TRHOM hits screens (please can it hit screens one day?), Meghan and Harry are set to tell their love story in a new documentary, title yet to be announced, which is anticipated to land on Netflix on Thursday 8 December.

We look forward to both the second series of Archetypes and their docu-series!
