Prince Harry wanted to quit royal family and not Meghan Markle, he's angry at how 'Megxit' blames her: New book
Prince Harry is angry at how 'Megxit' indicates Meghan was behind his decision to leave the royal family. 'Finding Freedom' is intended to 'set the record straight' on such claims
Much has been written and spoken about Prince Harry and Meghan's exit from the royal family and all fingers have been pointing towards the 'Suits' actress for supposedly orchestrating this step-down. However, her husband Prince Harry wants to make things clear. It was he who had made the decision to quit the royal family not his wife Meghan, and through their new biography 'Finding Freedom', the couple wants to set this and more such claims straight.
Soon after news broke of their impending exit, media outlets began reporting the whole event as 'Megxit' implying that the newly married entrant into the family was to blame for everything that was going on in the royal family. However, that term did not sit well with Prince Harry. Harry is believed to be angry about the term 'Megxit' as it seems like the decision to leave the royal family was driven by Meghan, an insider shared with The Sun.
Harry and Meghan's book is due to be released on August 11 and offers an "honest, up-close, and disarming portrait" of the "confident, influential, forward" couple. An insider said, "The reality is Harry drove [the decision to leave]. The book will make that clear and explain why it had to happen. The truth is Harry had been unhappy for a long, long time. He wanted to move in the direction that they did and had been considering it for more than a year," the source continued. Meghan had been supportive of Harry's decision but had constantly asked him whether he was certain that he wanted to leave.
"Meghan supported Harry’s decision. But there was more than one occasion where she asked him if he was certain it was what he wanted. And she always made it clear she would support him in whatever he did."
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex had made the shocking decision to quit the royal family earlier this year. While speaking at a charity event, Harry had also hinted that he was angry that everyone was seemingly blaming Meghan for his decision to leave.
"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited, we were hopeful, and we were here to serve. For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this. The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back, is not one I made lightly," Harry said. "It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven’t always gotten it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option," he continued. The new biography 'Finding Freedom' will delve into the 'journey' the pair are on.
"It will focus closely on the causes Meghan and Harry want to focus on and the new life they are leading.
