A friend told the Daily Mail that the Duchess of Sussex thought Finding Freedom, which is due out in August, “will finally set the record straight” for their “abdication” in North America.
The source said Meghan was desperate to “show the world why they had no choice but to leave” senior royal life in March.
They added that the former Suits actress also hopes that the biography “will shatter this image of [her] to be a demanding diva “, revealing” the monumental anguish and agitation “that she endured.
” I think [Meghan] wants people to feel sorry for her, or at least feel compassion for her and everything she has gone through, which has been anything but a fairy tale. ”
The new book promises the truth behind a couple who “are not afraid to break with tradition.”
The Sussexes reportedly collaborated closely with authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, with the book expected to “reveal unknown details”.
According to the promotional text, it will “also dispel the many rumors and misconceptions that plague the couple” in Britain and North America.
Mr. Scobie is the royal editor of Harper’s Bazaar, while Ms. Durand is a royal contributor to ELLE.com and OprahMag.com, their book was allegedly written “with the participation of those closest to the couple.”
The Mail previously reported that palace insiders believed the new publication would paint the couple in flattering light and become an exercise in settling scores.
