The unauthorized biography Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, written by royal correspondents Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand has caused quite a stir due to shocking revelations about Meghan Markle and husband Prince Harry’s departure from royal life.

Representatives for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have stated that the couple was not interviewed for the book and that book is completely based on the authors ‘own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting’.

According to the book, following a tense few months following the royal wedding, a tearful Markle told a friend in March: “I gave up my entire life for this family. I was willing to do whatever it takes. But here we are. It’s very sad.”

The book also reveals that Harry and Meghan were upset because they weren’t being supported by sections of the royal operation and annoyed at the leaks to the press. They were also saddened that the palace was not clarifying false news stories.
