Harry and Meghan book: When is Finding Freedom out in the UK?
HARRY and Meghan's split from the Royal family is laid bare in a new book being released in the UK on Tuesday, August 11.
Finding Freedom has allowed the ex-HRHs to give their side of the controversial story in this unofficial biography, based on the Megxit scandal.
When is Finding Freedom out in the UK?
The first instalment of a serialised version of the book Finding Freedom appeared in the Times in July.
It reveals the hurt feelings caused by the decision of Harry and Meghan to go into self-imposed exile – dubbed Megxit.
'Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family' will be released in the UK on Tuesday, August 11.
Amazon has slashed the price of Meghan and Harry's much-anticipated book before it was released.
The explosive biography has gone down from £20 to £13.60.
What is Finding Freedom about?
Authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand have had access to more than 100 people for the book and sources say it portrays the Sussexes in a positive light.
Finding Freedom is a tell-all about the Sussexes experience when they snubbed the royals during Megxit.
The extensively researched book aims to tell their side of the story and how they just wanted a bit of privacy and independence.
It was revealed the book will shatter the notion the American actress is the driving force behind the pair – and instead that it was Prince Harry who wanted to make the change.
Scobie and Durand said in a press release they wanted "to tell an accurate version of their journey and finally present the truth of misreported stories that have become gospel simply because of the amount of times they have been repeated.
"It is thanks to our sources that we have been able to share the definitive story of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex."
A source told The Sun Online: "The book will explore the journey that Meghan and Harry went through in coming to the conclusion that they did.
"It will make clear that far from it being a snap decision that they took a long time to make it.
"The seeds of Megxit were sown before they even got married. The truth is that Harry had been deeply unhappy for a long time.
"And he and Meghan openly discussed going in a different direction well before they got married.”
What has been said about the book?
The Sussexes themselves are reported to have co-operated with the book that appears to have ruffled yet more royal feathers.
Royal aides are worrying that the book will blame Prince William for the Megxit fiasco in January.
Aides are privately braced for Wills to be “painted as the bad guy”.
An insider described how they fear that the future king, 38 tomorrow, could be portrayed as “unsympathetic, unfeeling and unsupportive” towards the Sussexes when they decided to split from the Royal Family.
Dirty laundry aired this way could be as damaging as Princess Diana’s “there were three of us in this marriage” reference to Camilla in a bombshell 1995 TV interview, the insider claimed.
A source said aides have been discussing among themselves that the book will unfairly show only Harry and Meghan’s side of the rift, even though it is not an official biography.
Kensington Palace said it would not comment on the book.
