The Princess of York is believed to be building her working relationship with streaming giant Spotify after their infamous spat with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Princess Beatrice is set to land a new role with Spotify just months after the streaming giant axed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s lucrative £18 million deal.

Despite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex being labelled “f****** grifters” by Spotify executive Bill Simmons after only making just 12 episodes, the company is still adamant about working with the Royal Family, the Mail reports.

The Princess of York reportedly attended an industry event at Spotify’s London office last week as she slowly builds her working relationship with the company.

The Mail’s Emily Prescott wrote: “Harry’s cousin Beatrice appears to be building a working relationship with the company without shouting from the rooftops, perhaps in fear of showing up Montecito’s jam-makers.

“I can reveal that last week Beatrice, 35, attended an industry event at Spotify’s London office, where she hosted a discussion about the future of technology.”

The eldest daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson has always been involved in one way or another in tech and since 2017, she has been Vice-President of Partnerships and Strategy at US software and data firm Afiniti.

According to Ms Prescott, Beatrice is also director of a company called BY-EQ, which “she set up in 2022 under the unassuming name Beatrice York”.

Harry and Meghan saw their lucrative Spotify deal end last summer after only producing one show.

At the time, a joint statement from the Sussexes’ company and Spotify said they had “mutually agreed to part ways”.

Head of Podcast Innovation and Monetization at Spotify Bill Simmons savaged the Montecito couple, branding them “f****** grifters”.

Speaking on his own podcast, Mr Simmons said: “I wish I had been involved in the ‘Meghan and Harry leave Spotify’ negotiation. The F****** Grifters. That’s the podcast we should have launched with them. I have got to get drunk one night and tell the story of the Zoom I had with Harry to try and help him with a podcast idea. It’s one of my best stories … F*** them. The grifters.”

Meanwhile, Meghan secured a new deal with podcast distributor Lemonada Media back in February.

The new show, which has not been named yet, will be hosted by Meghan herself, while the company will also distribute her previous Spotify series, Archetypes, to all its podcast platforms.
