"The f------ grifters. That's the podcast we shoulda launched with them," Simmons said during the June 16 episode of The Bills Simmons Podcast.

Simmons, who serves as head of Spotify's global sports strategy, spilled the tea about an experience he had with King Charles III's youngest son.

"I gotta get drunk one night and tell the story of the Zoom I had with Harry to try and help him with a podcast idea. It's one of my best stories," he teased.

As we previously reported, Markle's podcast Archetypes will not be renewed for a second season in what has been described as a mutual decision by both parties to cut ties. The Sussexes first joined forces with Spotify in 2020 after they landed a $20 million deal with the company.

Simmons, for his part, previously made headlines last January for similar disparaging remarks about Harry, claiming it was embarrassing to be affiliated.

"I'm so tired of this guy. What does he bring to the table? He just whines about s--- and keeps giving interviews … You weren't even the favorite son," he said.

"You live in f------ Montecito and you just sell documentaries and podcasts and nobody cares what you have to say about anything unless you talk about the royal family and you just complain about them," Simmons continued.
