The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have lost another senior aide, The Telegraph can reveal.
Rebecca Sananes, who was named head of audio at Archewell in July 2021, has stepped down after just 18 months in the role, following the success of Archetypes, Meghan’s podcast, for which she was executive producer.
It comes after Mandana Dayani, who ran Archewell for less than 18 months, has also stepped down from her role as president by mutual agreement, and will not be replaced.
The Duke and Duchess will take “full lead” of their company, their spokesperson said.
Ms Sananes has recently changed her Twitter profile to remove a reference to her role at Archewell.
Sources suggested she was hired to produce Archetypes and that as such, her “transition was always intended”. It has not yet been decided whether a second series will be commissioned.
However, one source admitted that the timing was not ideal.
Meanwhile, Serena Regan has been hired to replace Ms Sananes as head of audio.ORDER A COPY OF ROB’S NEW BEST SELLING BOOK! Called “America’s Number ONE Gossip Columnist” by The National Enquirer.
