The Duchess of Sussex will be joined by Margaret Cho on October 4 for the fourth episode of Archetypes, in which the A-list duo will have a candid discussion on Asian American tropes in the entertainment industry. 

The highly-anticipated interview with the US comedian, actor, and LGBTQ+ activist will likely see Meghan once again exploring and dissecting the negative labels facing women and women of color in society. 

The 41-year-old, who has long been a passionate advocate of gender equality and feminism, has previously chatted with Serena Williams on The Misconception of Ambition and Mariah Carey on The Duality of Diva. Her third and most recent podcast guest was Mindy Kaling, who joined the former Suits star to talk about The Stigma of the Singleton

The duchess has also shared numerous insights into her personal life in the first three episodes, with Meghan's confession that she wanted a Swan Lake wedding before marrying Prince Harry being one of the most shocking revelations to emerge from the conversations. 

It's understood that the US royal records Archetypes from her $14 million Santa Barbara mansion, where she reportedly had a purpose-built studio built for the exciting audio project. Photos of Meghan's podcast office that have since circulated online have treated royal fans to a glimpse of the duchess's opulent home life, with red Turkish-style rugs and a velour beige love seat just two of the standout furnishings in the luxurious room. 

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle returned to the US last week, flying back to California almost immediately after the Queen's state funeral had ended. 

The couple was coincidentally in England when news of the 96-year-old's death broke, having traveled to Europe for a whirlwind tour of charity engagements in the UK and Germany. 

They extended their stay in the country for the Royal Family's period of mourning, joining Prince William and Kate Middleton at Windsor Castle for a royal walkabout just two days after the Queen's passing. 

Harry and Meghan also attended a vigil for the Queen on Saturday, September 17, as well as her funeral at Westminster Abbey on Monday, September 19. It is understood that the Sussexes were unable to reconcile their differences with King Charles III during the visit, however, having failed to reach any lasting resolutions whilst back on British soil.
