It's the return we've all been waiting for and House of the Dragon has made quite the impression. The HBO show, which is a prequel to Game of Thrones, launched its first episode this week and has officially become the channel's biggest release in history. In the US alone, the episode drew in almost 10 million viewers, which is the largest audience in the TV channel's history including content that debuted before the TV streaming era. The drama, which stars Matt Smith and Olivia Cooke, will air episodes weekly. 

And the first episode of Meghan Markle's new Spotify podcast Archetpes has officially dropped. The Duchess of Sussex's new project will seek to investigate the labels that try to hold women back. The first episode sees Meghan chat with close friend and tennis superstar Serena Williams about the double standards that women face when they are labelled 'ambitious' and the ripple affects this has on their lives. The pair also opened up candidly about their ambitions while journeying into motherhood, and the struggles they faced being mothers in the public eye. Episode one of Archetypes is available to listen in full on Spotify now.
