Long-standing royal family reporters Caroyln Durand and Omid Scobie just released their heavily-anticipated royal family biography about the royal exit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The new 400-page biography “Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family” is said to be a sympathetic account of the couple’s life in regards to their royal titles as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The biography offers information from a confidential royal insider detailing the relationship between the members of the royal family but Prince Harry and Megahan Markle did not contribute to the book. If you plan on reading the book, this is an official spoiler alert warning with some shocking royal revelations.
The media heavily speculated the relationship between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle revealing they’re not the best of friends but in aren’t enemies either. It seemed that Kate and Meghan weren’t the best of friends but it’s apart of royal etiquette of ‘distant politeness.’ The royal step-sisters might have seemed distant but there was a rift between the royal brothers, Prince William and Prince Harry.
Prince Harry’s brother, Prince William, publicly supported his brother’s relationship with Meghan but he was a bit apprehensive behind closed doors. Prince William chose to privately address Prince Harry about the fast-pace relationship he formed with the American actress.
William advised Harry to take his time getting to know Meghan before getting too serious and Harry was seeing red. It seemed that Harry might have overreacted as William is described as calm and Harry can sometimes take things too personally according to royal insiders. The royals might have had family issues, but Meghan also has family issues with her father Thomas Markle.
Meghan’s estranged father, Thomas Markle, has spoken out against the couple in numerous (assumed paid) interviews and staged paparazzi moments. Markle took advantage of his daughter’s royal status to stage paparazzi photos in Mexico and declined to attend his daughter’s wedding in 2018 despite her arranging the flights to London for him.
Meghan was hurt by all the negative things her father did but wanted to give him a second-chance by inviting him to the wedding but haven’t had much of a relationship after that. When Meghan gave birth to her first child, Archie, her mother notified her father but Meghan didn’t want to know whether he responded as she is focusing on building her family.
