In one of the first episodes of Meghan's "Archetypes" podcast for Spotify, the Duchess shared a scary story of an incident while on tour in South Africa. She revealed that a heater in Archie's nursery had caught fire, but the young Prince was thankfully not in the room. 

She said, "When [the nanny] went downstairs, the heater in the nursery caught on fire. There was no smoke detector. Someone just smelled smoke down the hallway, went in, the fire was extinguished. He was supposed to be sleeping in there."

Meghan also said that despite the scary news given to her and Harry, they still had to complete their Royal engagements. She said, "As a mother, you go, 'Oh, my God, what?' Everyone's in tears; everyone's shaken. And what do we have to do? Go out and do another official engagement."

Harry and Meghan's alleged new project with Netflix comes days after the former "Suits" actress signed with new talent management. The firm, William Morris Entertainment (WME), also represents a-list stars like Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and her close friend, Serena Williams. 

According to Variety, Meghan's signing is a significant move for WME, as there's been competition over which agency would land her management after their family moved to California. 

The Duchess' team at the agency will reportedly include CEO Ari Emanuel, brand architect Brad Slater, and agent Jill Smoller. WME will also manage Archewell and all its film productions, brand partnerships, and business ventures. Meghan's acting career will not be a point of focus for the block.
