Meghan Markle has released eight episodes of her critically acclaimed podcast series Archetypes so far, with royal experts claiming the platform has given the royal her "voice back" and reminded the public "she is a person"

Meghan Markle's decision to launch Archetypes, a now critically-acclaimed Spotify podcast series, has paid off according to royal expert, Amanda Matta, who says that the show has proved that 'she [Meghan] is a person.'

Speaking on the latest episode of the PureWow podcast, Royally Obsessed, Amanda, also known as @matta_of_fact on TikTok and Instagram, sang Meghan's praises and the former-actresses candid approach to discussing her personal experiences.

Matta told podcast hosts Rachel Bowie and Roberta Fiorito, "With Archetypes [and] Harry's book, the theme for the Sussexes this fall [Autumn], really, seems to be rewriting the narrative about them."

Matta explained that now both Meghan and Harry have the platforms to speak "in their own words", the public will be able to learn about the royals and their lives in a more "powerful" way.

She elaborated, "For Meghan, so far, Archetypes has been a really huge success. She is reminding us that she is a person. Whenever she gets on her podcast, I'm just reminded [that] she's a girls girl.

"She has always wanted to do something more with her position. Whether that was as a celebrity, as a public figure or a member of the Royal Family. Now that she's no longer a working member of the Royal Family, it's very interesting seeing that take shape right before us, on our Spotify app, every week."
