MEGHAN Markle's ex "head of audio" has taken a veiled swipe at the Duchess over her Spotify Archetypes podcast.

Departing Archetypes executive producer Rebecca Sananes claimed she created Meghan's award-winning podcast in a TikTok video.

Just days ago Rebecca revealed that she would be stepping down from her role after less than 18 months.

Her resignation came after the Hollywood Reporter published its "Forty most powerful people in podcasting" list and failed to include her.

Rebecca attributed the success of podcasts, including Archetypes, to the "under-valued, under-credited and under-paid" producers.

Rebecca announced: "I am the executive producer and creator of Archetypes, hosted by Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex.

"The 40 most powerful people in podcasting are not executives, they’re not celebrity hosts, and they’re not talent agents.

"They are the producers. Producers edit, research, write, make scripts, make the sound good, score, everything you love about your favourite podcast is because a producer made it and producers are being under-valued, under-credited and under-paid and it’s making the industry boring and slow. Let’s do better."

Rebecca’s exit came just days after Mandana Dayani stepped down as president of the non-profit organisation last week.

And it follows the resignations of Toya Holness as global secretary in May and Catherine St Laurent as director in 2021.

Rebecca, who joined in July last year and was executive producer of Meghan's podcast Archetypes, will be replaced by Serena Regan, according to The Telegraph.

Her "transition" was "mutually planned", Archewell said.

It comes as Meghan was blasted as "lazy" amid rumours she failed to interview guests herself on her Spotify podcast.

The Duchess of Sussex was also accused of being "determined to conquer everything" by royal expert Angela Levin.

Meghan, who launched the podcast as part of an £18million deal with American audio giant Spotify, said hosting the show has made her feel like a changed woman.

Guests such as Serena Williams, Mariah Carey and Mindy Kaling have appeared on her podcast.

Meghan and Harry recently released their controversial new Netflix show on Thursday.

The couple's £88m show dives into the pair's "love story" as well as their feud with the Royal Family.

The Duke and Duchess unleashed a string of bombshell claims in their first three shows.
