According to a source, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle requested private talks with Spider-Man couple Tom Holland and Zendaya despite the fact that they had never met before.
Their performance in Spider-Man: No Way Home has helped the picture become one of the all-time box office smashes, grossing £1.27 billion worldwide since its debut just before Christmas.
“Tom and Zendaya were rather bemused, from what I hear,” a pal of Harry’s told Mail Online.
“Tom had never met Harry or spoken to him in his life, so didn’t know what they wanted.”
Despite this, the performers agreed to meet the Sussexes, who live in Montecito, California, . ‘The meeting took place,’ the insider said.
The meeting was apparently held in the utmost secrecy by the royal couple.
The royals may have met up to attract big names for their £18 million Spotify podcast project, which has so far failed to materialize – save for a one-off special.
It would be a great achievement for Harry and Meghan if they could persuade the world’s most famous showbiz couple to appear on their podcast.
It comes after The Sun reported earlier this week that Spotify is taking “into its own hands” Harry and Meghan’s £18 million podcast initiative.
So far, Harry and Meghan have only released a 35-minute “holiday special” in December 2020, which featured famous friends like Elton John and James Corden.
The streaming behemoth is rumored to be recruiting a slew of in-house producers to help with content delivery.
They had been waiting for the fugitive royals to generate content as part of their mega-money arrangement for more than a year.
Spotify announced it’s looking to launch their “full-scale” show in 2021, but nothing materialized.
Meanwhile, following the success of the Spider-Man film, American Zendaya and British Tom are presently riding high in the film industry.
Zendaya gently threw her arm around her beau’s waist on January 23, during a visit to the actor’s family home in London. The duo, who play Spider-Man and his classmate MJ, have subsequently hooked up as a real-life romance.
