Royally indignant. Prince william is not satisfied with the content of Find freedom, the new book on Prince harry and Meghan markle, reveals an exclusive source in the new issue of Us weekly.
In the book, released on August 11, the authors Omid scobie and Carolyn Durand detail the shocking developments in the behind-the-scenes relationship that led Harry, 35, and Meghan, 38, to step back from the royal family earlier this year. While a spokesperson tells We that the content is “based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps” and that the royal couple were not involved, William, 38, believes otherwise.
“William believes the book is their calculated way of controlling the narrative and that they took advantage of their entertainment contacts to be painted in a favorable light,” the source said.
Harry and the Suit alum announced their royal exit in January, less than two years after they tied the knot in May 2018. Since leaving their responsibilities as royals, the couple have briefly moved to Canada and have been since moved to Los Angeles with his 14 month old son Archie.
While Harry and his brother were on thin ice before Find freedom stirred the royal pot, the book only exacerbated their tension. An excerpt from the revealer reveals that the former military pilot was “pissed off” at William, who wanted to “make sure Harry wasn’t blinded by lust” before going public about his relationship with Meghan.
“Even before the book was released, the bad blood between William and Harry was apparent,” another source said. We. “But it took a whole new turn.”
In October 2019, Harry admitted that he and his brother were “certainly on different paths” in an interview for the ITV documentary, Harry & Meghan: an African journey. With new details on the dynamics of the royal family emerging in Find freedom, William feels that he and his wife Duchess Kate are made to look like the bad guys in Harry’s life.
“William is the voice of reason and can’t help but think that Harry’s continued resentment towards him, Kate and the rest of the Royal Family is a sign that he’s struggling to move forward with his life in LA.” , says the first source.
