Harry and Meghan's company Archewell have lost another two key members of staff - bringing the total number of workers lost since 2018 to 16. Fara Taylor, who is head of the Archewell Productions marketing team, and internal content head Ben Browning are said to be both leaving their roles at the company.


Ms Taylor oversaw the marketing team during the release of Harry's memoir, Spare and the couple's Netflix docuseries.

The Telegraph reported that the Duke and Duchess are "hugely grateful" for the pair's support, as well as their "vital look-back projects".

The report also said that the couple believed Ms Taylor and Mr Browning "exceeded expectations".

Despite not officially launching Archewell until late 2020, the Duke and Duchess have reportedly lost sixteen members of their staff since 2018.

The firm's head of communications told the newspaper that the pair were leaving after having "made their mark within the cultural zeitgeist".

Mr Browning, who is an Oscar-nominated producer, plays an "integral" part in the production of the Harry and Meghan Netflix series.

The series has been dubbed Netflix's most-streamed documentary series debut.

Reports claim that Mr Browning's departure will be followed by a "period of focus on scripted content production".

Ms Taylor's departure comes to light after the Sussexes were planning to "streamline the company's marketing arm".

Following her departure, it has been announced that Ashley Hansen, who is the head of communication at Archewell, will now lead the marketing team.

After the departure news, Ms Hansen praised Ms Taylor and Mr Browning for the "creation and execution of many critically and commercially acclaimed projects" and noted that both played "critical roles" in helping the couple tell their stories to the public.
