Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s upcoming biography by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durant entitled Finding Freedom takes a swipe at the royal family.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have a new book coming out next month written by royal correspondents Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. The duo works together for the new book to portray the real Sussexes.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new biography
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been among the favorite celebrity subjects for years. The former Suits star has gained more supporters and critics after joining the royal family.
Royal correspondent Roya Nikkha shared her review about Finding Freedom by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. According to her, it was digging the royal family.
The authors’ said their goal is to portray the real Prince Harry and Markle because they are inaccurately portrayed. However, they did so by shading the other royal family, Nikkhah said.
“That may have been the original aim, but over 24 chapters of score-settling and swipes at the royal family, the institution of monarchy, royal aides and the media, their admirable charitable endeavours are swamped by bitter recriminations,” Nikkhah wrote for The Sunday Times.
“The book is likely to make particularly hurtful reading for the Queen, the grandmother Harry has said he ‘adores’ if indeed a copy finds its way to Balmoral, where she is about to decamp for her summer break with most of her family.”
Prince William, a snob
Prince Harry also allegedly branded his older brother, Prince William, a snob. Prince Charles’ two sons were not on the same page when it comes to Meghan Markle.
The Duke of Cambridge warned his younger brother about Markle.
“Take as much time as you need to get to know this girl,” Prince William told Prince Harry.
However, Prince Harry took offense in his brother’s advice. The future king didn’t mean to offend Prince Harry with his advice. He dated Kate Middleton for almost a decade before he proposed to her. Prince William was only concerned with his younger sibling.
“But at the same time William has always felt he needs to look out for Harry, not as a future Monarch but as an older brother. Their whole adult lives he’s felt he should keep an eye on Harry and make sure he’s not in trouble and on a good path,” a source said per Daily Mail.
Kate Middleton not helping Meghan Markle
The book also claimed that Kate Middleton was not helping Meghan Markle when she was among those who could have understood her. Both are commoners before they married the royal family.
Also, Middleton “did little” to bridge the gap between Prince William and Prince Harry. The royal siblings became more distant after Prince Harry’s wedding to Markle.
Harry and Meghan spoke about the book
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle released a statement ahead of the release of the book. According to them, they were not involved in its publication.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting,” their spokesperson said in a statement.
