The Duke and Duchess of Sussex “discussed Megxit before getting married” because the Duke was “deeply unhappy for a long time”, a new book should claim.
Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, currently live in Tyler Perry’s $ 18 million mansion, after leaving royal office in March.
Sources have now revealed how the explosive biography Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the creation of a modern royal family, which will be published online on August 11, should “explore the couple’s journey” until their decision.
An insider told the Sun, “Megxit seeds were sown before they even got married. The truth is that Harry had been deeply unhappy for a long time.
Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle, 38, “openly discussed the Megxit before getting married,” sources said.
The source continued, “And he and Meghan openly discussed going in a different direction long before their wedding. “
They added that the biography “will clarify” that choosing to step back from royal family life was “far from an instant decision.”
Co-author Omid Scobie, who accompanied Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on various royal tours, recently told the Heir Pod podcast that the tale was twisted that “even the Sussexes weren’t expecting.”
He said, “This project started about two years ago, and there have been twists and turns that no one expected. It’s something nobody expected.
Insiders say the couple discussed “going in a different direction” to the rest of the business “long before their marriage”
“I don’t even think that Harry and Meghan, who on their own have struggled with the realities of the situation, expected things to turn out the way they did.
Explaining that the biography gives a true inside account of their story, he said, “I have participated in and around as many engagements as possible, and I have spoken to so many people in their lives, so no stone was left out. .
“I’ve seen the couple stick to their own beliefs and stand their ground in the face of adversities that have been publicly portrayed in the press, and I would like to think that tells the final story of their lives together. “
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.
Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family is expected to be published online worldwide on August 11, with hard copy on sale from August 20.
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 unique access written 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 to break up 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.
The cover features a radiant Prince Harry and Meghan when they visited their homonymous county in October 2018 for the first time.

In April, the Mail on Sunday reported that the duke and duchess had cooperated with Omid Scobie and Catherine Durand on the explosive new book which was likely to inflict further anxiety on the royal family.
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 detail.
