When news of the budding romance between a beloved English prince and an American actress broke, it captured the world’s attention and sparked an international media frenzy. But while the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have continued to make headlines—from their engagement, wedding, and birth of their son Archie to their unprecedented decision to step back from their royal lives—few know the true story of Harry and Meghan.
For the very first time, Finding Freedom goes beyond the headlines to reveal unknown details of Harry and Meghan’s life together, dispelling the many rumors and misconceptions that plague the couple on both sides of the pond.

With unique access and 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 forward-thinking couple who are unafraid to break with tradition, determined to create a new path away from the spotlight, and dedicated to building a humanitarian legacy that will make a profound difference in the world.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Take a peek behind the pomp and drama of the world’s favorite (formerly) royal couple. Journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand—who bring years of experience reporting on several generations of England’s royalty to this fascinating biography—get to the bottom of what led Harry and Meghan to leave the royal family. They detail H and M’s frustrations with their public lives and give us revealing insights into the incidents that led them to cut official ties. Fans will also thrill at the reveal of Harry’s secret Instagram handle (not so secret anymore!), his favorite emoji, and the pair’s friendship with, among others, the Clooneys. Rich with detail and all the hot goss, this book is like the perfect brunch with your most fabulous besties.
Predictable but Enjoyable Read
With the rest of the world, I’ve been intrigued with H&M’s relationship since the public first learned of it. While I was already well-aware of the events that took place after their coming out, it was fascinating to read about their initial courtship, the many private trips they took, and the lengths that both of them would take to make their relationship work and kept under wraps in its early days. Additionally, it was fun to read about the tiny instances and passing facts that we would otherwise never hear about.
This book essentially confirms what we were all waiting to hear: that the royal family was indeed quite cold to Meghan, that the media storm was relentless and had a huge toll on her behind closed doors, and that most of what we read in the headlines was blown out of proportion.
Overall, while I would say that I didn’t learn as much as I had expected to from reading this book, it was a fast and enjoyable read!
SPOILED RICH BRATS
Simply a spoiled rich family, who are crying about all the privilege and special perks they had received, but now they have buyers remorse. Boo-hoo, we do not care about your minor problems. Grow up and try and act like mature adults.
A silly book about thin-skinned rich people.
