A balanced account of game changes, conflicts and ambitions in the Royal Family from the bestselling author of DIANA IN PRIVATE.
The fall from popular grace of Prince Harry, the previously adulated brother of the heir to the British throne as a consequence of his marriage to the beautiful and dynamic Hollywood actress and Suits star, Meghan Markle, makes for fascinating reading in this new book from Lady Colin Campbell, best-selling biographer of Princess Diana, the Queen Mother and the Queen's marriage.
With unique breadth of insight Lady C goes behind the scenes, speaking to friends, relations, courtiers, and colleagues on both sides of the Atlantic to reveal the most unexpected royal story since Edward VIII's Abdication. She highlights the dilemmas involved and the issues that lurk beneath the surface, as to why the couple decided to step down as senior royals. She analyses the implications of the actions of a young and ambitious Duke and Duchess of Sussex, in love with each other and with the empowering lure of fame and fortune, and leads the reader through the maze of contradictions, revealing how Californian culture has influenced the couple's conduct.
MEGHAN AND HARRY: THE REAL STORY exposes how the royal couple tried and failed to change the royal system by adapting it to their own needs and ambitions, and, upon failing, how they decided to create a new system altogether.

Fantastic Book ❤️
I’ve had a few late nights engrossed in reading this it’s a real page-turner. Very fair and balanced view beautifully put in writing. It made Harry & Megan seem more human and helped in understanding them better. Thank you Lady C ❤️
This is clearly nothing more than rehashed tabloid rubbish from a bitter old women.
Nothing new here
Well written with good pace, but it is mostly recounting everything already said in the tabloids. Anyone whose read the newspapers could have written this book.
