‘Finding Freedom’: Release date, co-authors and all you need to know about Meghan and Harry’s upcoming biography
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been subjected to severe criticism for their decision to leave the royal family. The actress has also been called out for leading an extravagant life with her significant other. The ‘Suits’ alum now wants to set the record straight and show people the true side to her story through hers and Harry’s upcoming biography titled ‘Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family’.
Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family’ is set to release worldwide on August 11, 2020 with a hard copy on sale from August 20. However, reports are now suggesting that Meghan wants the publication date to be preponed.
A source told Daily Mail, “If Meghan had it her way, the book would be released tomorrow instead of three months from now.”
What it talks about
Apparently, Meghan believes “the book will finally set the record straight and show the world why they were left with no other choice than to leave the royal life.”
And, she “desperately wants to shatter this image of being a demanding diva who was rude to royal staffers and others on her quest for fame and power.”
The source close to the couple told the publication, “Meghan said people need to see her vulnerable side, something the book does in great detail. I think [Meghan] wants people to feel sorry for her, or at least have compassion for her and all she's been through, which has been anything but a fairy tale.”
The official description of the book reads, “With unique access and written with the participation of those closest to the couple, Finding Freedom is an honest, up-close, and disarming portrait of a confident, influential, and forward-thinking couple who are unafraid to break with tradition, determined to create a new path away from the spotlight, and dedicated to building a humanitarian legacy that will make a profound difference in the world.”
The biography is co-authored by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.
