Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s unofficial biography, Finding Freedom, has stunned royal fans across the world. The book was written by royal experts Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand and details Meghan and Harry’s life together in the Royal Family. Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the authors have insisted the royal couple had no input into the book.
However, other royal commentators have argued this may not be completely true.
During Channel 5’s royal documentary, Meghan and Harry: The New Revelations, commentators reflected on the impact the new book would have on Meghan and Harry and the rest of the Royal Family.
Royal expert Russell Myers said: “It is hard to believe that Meghan and Harry didn’t have more than an interest in the book.
“There are certain lines within the book and quotes that have potentially come from Meghan and Harry.

“I think that a lot of people will be thinking they had more of a hand in it than they are letting on.”
Royal commentator Emily Andrews agreed and highlighted the multiple reasons why a royal will often deny involvement with biographies.
She said: “A royal will always deny any involvement.
“That is because that is the convention, that you never openly say that you have helped.
“She has been frustrated that all sorts of stories have come out about her and she has not been able to answer back.
“It is something Meghan has found immensely frustrating.”
Viscountess Hinchingbook, Julie Montagu added that the details the book presents also allow royal fans to better understand the couple.
She said: “This book is an opportunity for them both, in particular Meghan.
“This is for us to understand why they did step down as senior royals and why they moved across the pond.”
