Prince William & Prince Harry Are Now "Separate Entities", New Book Claims

Prince William & Prince Harry Are Now

The couple say they did not contribute to the new biography "Finding Freedom", written by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, but friends of the couple provided much of its content.

The book says palace communications staff and lawyers were moving to have publication stopped, when Meghan phoned her father.

The Duchess of Sussex tied the knot to Prince Harry in a star-studded royal wedding at Windsor Castle in 2017, which was attended by everyone from the Queen to David and Victoria Beckham. Their relationship hadn't progressed much since she was Harry's girlfriend.

Her wardrobe, makeup and hair underwent a style overhaul and within a short time she was transformed into exactly what a Duchess should look like - though she was still criticised for "breaking protocol" from time to time.

Meghan Markle did not want to stop serving the Queen because she had given up her life for the monarchy, according to a new book which has been touted as being their side of the story over the shock exit from their senior royal roles.

Indeed, the Duchess gave up a lot to marry Harry, and continued to work hard to meet expectations in her time as a royal. It would seem that William found it challenging being involved in brokering Harry's deal to step down as a senior royal.

In the book, which is being serialised by the Times and the Sunday Times, the authors claim the Duke of Sussex was angered by what he perceived as his brother's "snobbish" attitude to his bride.

According to PEOPLE, Meghan, who has impeccable handwriting and was once a freelance calligrapher, wrote out their wedding speech and framed it for Harry for their first anniversary in 2019.

Harry himself has said that the decision was his, and multiple reports have cited the Duke of Sussex as the driving force behind the couple's exit.

Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family is due out in August, and the first peek is here.

But both Meghan and Prince Harry were also angry at the media for wearing down Thomas Markle for several months until he complied with their requests.

The authors add that Harry long wanted distance, saying: "It's why he gravitated toward the military, had always avoided the pomp as much as he could, and didn't give his child a title". The couple subsequently moved to Los Angeles with their son and began setting up a more private life away from the confines of the royal establishment.

"Harry felt awkward as a plus one".

Having been raised by one heir - Prince Charles - and alongside another - Prince William - Harry reportedly struggled with the restrictions of his own royal role for years before meeting Meghan.

"Meghan simply emboldened him to make the change".

William may have felt he was acting out of concern, but Harry was offended that his older brother still treated him as if he were immature.

"Harry was pissed off", another source said.
