Extracts from the highly anticipated new royal biography about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s life, have been floating around the internet over the past few weeks. However, Finding Freedom has apparently caused some tension between Harry and his brother, Prince William.
The unofficial royal biography Finding Freedom digs into William and Harry’s relationship, claiming that William was not too than welcoming when Meghan Markle joined the Royal Family.
The book even says that William thought Harry was “blindsided by lust.”
Royal author Phil Dampier recently told The Daily Mail that Princes Harry and William are on speaking terms and appear to be making amends.
He said: “The pair are speaking at the moment, but the conversations are stilted and difficult.”
The books also say William told Harry to “take as much time as you need to get to know ‘this girl.'”
Harry thought was incredibly snobbish and caused him to grow “tired of the dynamic that had become established between him and his older brother.”
Meanwhile, a source previously told Us Weekly that “William thinks the book is their calculated way of controlling the narrative and that they took advantage of their entertainment contacts so they’d be painted in a favourable light.”
The book also explores Harry and Meghan’s decision to stand from their roles as senior members of the Royal Family.
Meghan and Harry’s decision to leave their roles as senior royals lead many to believe that the Duchess of Sussex just wasn’t prepared for life in the Royal Family.
However, royal authors say that Harry actually warned Meghan about the craziness of royal life early on.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have distanced themselves from the book, saying they were not interviewed for the biography and did not make any contributions to it.
However, extracts of the book published by The Times discuss details of Harry and Meghan’s first ever date, and how Harry warned Meghan about royal life.
However, Harry did hint royal life wouldn’t be easy.
The extract said: “The most he had admitted at that point was that his life was ‘sometimes a little mad'”
The book, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand spoke of how Harry tried to “impress” Meghan on the date.
However, it wasn’t as easy as the Prince may have anticipated.
The extract reads: “On that first date at Soho House’s Dean Street Townhouse Meghan had enough dating experience to know a charmer when she saw one, and Harry was obviously not at all that. If anything, he was unfiltered.
“While it was clear he wanted to impress her with details about his work, he spoke without overthinking — and he never mentioned anything about being a royal or a prince.”
The extract read: “Harry quickly realised that impressing Meghan was going to be tougher than just giving her one of his big smiles.
“’I am really going to have to up my game here, sit down and make sure I’ve got a good chat!'”
“Harry talked about his charity work, excitedly telling her stories from his extensive trips to Africa.
“Their ‘passions for wanting to make change for good’, as Harry described it, was, as Meghan said, ‘One of the first things we connected on.'”
Indeed, the couple are involved in a number of projects close to their hearts today, and are planning to launch their new organisation Archewell this year.
Meghan has since appeared in numerous video calls with charities close to her heart and has also received widespread praise for her speech on George Floyd.
