Meghan Markle has been accused of having an “ulterior motive” with her new podcast looking at settling “scores”.

Meghan’s podcast titled “Archetypes”, promises speaking out against "labels that try to hold women back".

In the first episode released on Tuesday, Meghan sat down with tennis superstar Serena Williams to discuss a wide range of topics.

Among the topics discussed included Meghan having to leave her son Archie following a house fire in South Africa, in order to take part in royal engagements.

While during a discussion about moments in Ms Williams’ time as a player, Meghan said: "Oh my gosh you were treated completely unfairly."

Speaking following the release of the first episode, royal expert Kinsey Schofield believes there is an ulterior motive to the content.

Ms Schofield said on GB News’ Eamonn and Isabel: “Outside looking in, there’s an ulterior motive here with this podcast and that’s settling scores.

“With this episode, you kind of see her go after Tom Bower, responding to his claim that she’s ambitious and scheming.

“The book also say that Serena Williams told a media contact they weren’t necessarily good friends and he also questions her Procter and Gamble story.

“She goes into all those things in the very first episode in her podcast, I think that those might be related.”

At the end of Meghan's opening podcast the Duchess of Sussex announced that Carey will be her next guest.

It has also revealed upcoming speakers during the 12-part podcast will include actresses Mindy Kaling and Margaret Cho, as well as comedian Amanda Seales and author Allison Yarrow.
