New edition of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Finding Freedom biography to lift lid on royal rifts

A NEW edition of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Finding Freedom biography is set to lift the lid on all the latest royal drama – including the Sussexes' bombshell Oprah interview.

The tell-all book by authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand was published in August last year and painted a flattering picture of how the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from royal life in 2020.

It gave Meghan and Harry's account of the events through friends and Sussex sources – and is now being updated with new chapters, The Times reports.

The latest updates are expected to cover the couple's explosive Oprah interview, allegations against Meghan over the bullying of royal staff, which she denies, and Prince Philip’s death.

The new edition is also said to take in their new life in America, their multimillion-pound deals with Netflix and Spotify and the Queen’s decision to strip them of all royal patronages earlier this year.

The book will go on sale on August 5 and is likely to cause even more tension within the Royal Family, particularly between Harry and William.

A senior courtier told The Times: “The Oprah interview detonated a bomb under the royal family and most of them are still reeling in shock.

"The book will not help.”

Another senior royal source added: “After Oprah, what else is there to say?”

Published last summer, Finding Freedom covered the period from 2016, when Meghan and Harry met, to their departure from royal life and move to America last year.

Described by some critics as a “hagiography”, it said Harry was “pissed off” with his brother, who he felt behaved like “a snob” when he advised Harry to “take as much time as you need to get to know” Meghan.

In the book, Meghan was also said to be “disappointed” that the Duchess of Cambridge wasn’t “welcoming enough”, while Harry believed the Prince of Wales valued his image over his relationship with his son.

Authors Durand and Scobie, said they had “unique access” to those closest to the couple.

The Sussexes, however, have denied collaborating with the book, which was being sold on Amazon for 99p, just five months after it was published.
