Harper Collins, owner of Dey Street Books, the publisher of the biography, has published a brief description of Meghan and Prince Harry’s collaboration with the two journalists.
The description of the book says that “few know the true story of Harry and Meghan”.
He promises to go “beyond the headlines to reveal unknown details of the lives of Harry and Meghan together, dispelling the many rumors and misconceptions plaguing the couple on both sides of the pond.”
He continues: “With a single written access with the participation of those closest to the couple, Finding Freedom is an honest, up-close and disarming portrait of a confident, influential and avant-garde couple who is not afraid of break with tradition, determined to create a new path out of the spotlight, and dedicated to building a humanitarian heritage that will make a profound difference in the world.
Last month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex granted interviews to the authors of the biography.
Meanwhile, the cover features a radiant Prince Harry and Meghan as they visited their namesake county in October 2018 for the first time.
Insiders of the palace expect the biography to paint a flattering portrait of the couple.
There are fears that it will also be a scoring exercise in which Harry and Meghan’s strained relationship with the royal family and the painful decision to leave Britain are reviewed in uncomfortable details.
The Mail on Sunday learned that before moving to North America, the privacy-obsessed Sussexes gave an interview to the book’s authors, the two journalists.

One of them, Omid Scobie, is a recognized Meghan cheerleader and was one of the favorite journalists who were given details of the couple’s video call to the Queen last week at during which they wished him a happy 94th birthday.
Echoing Princess Diana’s secret involvement in the best-selling biography, Diana: Her True Story, when she encouraged her friends to speak to author Andrew Morton, questions are asked if members of the inner circle of Meghan was asked to help Scobie and her American co-author, Carolyn Durand.
The 320-page biography, expected to be released in August, is expected to be a global bestseller.
