- Meghan Markle, 38, and Prince Harry, 35, ‘felt muted’ during the time in the royal family
- Royal expert said it is “clear” that they “wanted to cross their line” in a new book
- Katie Nicholl called the high level of detail in new biography ‘unprecedented’
The authors of Finding Freedom spoke of “sources incredibly close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex,” which gave a “remarkable and impressive” level of detail after the pair felt “muted,” a royal expert claimed.
The bomb’s biography reveals that Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, are tearing up with the rest of the royal family and their extraordinary secret courtship where the pair became ‘obsessed’ with each other and knew they would get married after the second date.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl said she was amazed at the level of detail in the biography written by journalists Omid Scobie and Cathryn Durant.
She called the book both “compelling and fascinating,” she said Entertainment tonight: “I think it’s very clear that Meghan and Harry wanted to convey their side of the story. Obviously, this is a couple quite tormented by the fact that they have never been able to answer their critics. ‘
Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, ‘wanted to clearly convey their side of the story,’ said royal expert Katie Nicholl
Katie called the level of detail ‘very remarkable’ and ‘unprecedented’ and went on to say that it was ‘clear’ that the authors had spoken to ‘countless sources’.
The royal expert added that while the story had become ‘well known’ to many royal fans, the biography was the first time the audience heard it from the perspective of Harry and Meghan.
She explained that the book was “harmful” to the royal family because it “opened old wounds.”
Meanwhile, Katie also shared how the biography is also “used” to correct some of the rumors that have plagued them for years.
Katie said the book seemed to “give the Duke and Duchess of Sussex the chance to tell their side of the story” (pictured, at Canada House in January, hours before announcing their plan to relinquish royal duty)
She explained that the book seemed “to give Meghan and Harry the chance, if not by their own voices, than by the voices of friends, confidants and people they trust to bring out their side of the story.”
She added that Meghan, in particular, felt “muted” with her royal life and had no opportunity to respond to critics.
Mr. Scobie and Miss Durand say they have spoken to over 100 sources, including “close friends of Harry and Meghan, royal assistants and palace staff (past and present).”
A spokesman said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex did not contribute to the book. Meghan has said in the past that she allowed friends to speak to the press on her behalf.

The book’s revelations have led to suggestions that there is no turning back for the couple, who moved to California with their one-year-old son Archie after withdrawing their royal duties in January.
The pair have “torpedoed” every opportunity to create a new position with the help of the Queen and high sovereigns when their “trial period” ends in the US, sources say.
The book, which reveals their sour relationship with the monarchy in unbearable detail, is likely to overturn hopes of renegotiating their royal duties if “Megxit” is revised.
Meanwhile, the royal expert also added that the book would be ‘harmful’ to the royal family because it could ‘open old wounds’
The revelations will also hurt efforts to restore their separation from Harry’s brother William and sister-in-law Kate, they fear.
A source from a royal household said, “The door will always be open to them as dear family members. But it’s hard to see how they can now save the new role they wanted as ‘hybrid’ royals, with commercial careers alongside regal duties from the US. ‘
Another source told the Mail: “The evaluation period has not yet been discussed, but it doesn’t seem like there is a way to go back now. Some very private matters have now been publicly broadcast, seemingly with their blessings. That will be painful. ‘
