Meghan Markle felt ‘raw’ reading Harry’s memoir – ‘it’s painful,’ says expert

Meghan Markle was reportedly left in “shock” by some of the intimate details about Prince Harry ’s life, which have been laid bare in the royal’s upcoming memoir.

The claims were made by a source close to the pair amid an ongoing scramble for publishers to get the book out and on shelves ahead of the Thanksgiving and Christmas shopping rush in the United States.

The explosive memoir will, as per the Duke of Sussex’s own admission, touch upon the "experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons that have helped shape him" over the past four decades of his life.

It is thought this deeper look at his own history and the moments that shaped him will teach the royal’s wife a lot more about him than she had originally known.

A source close to the couple also revealed that Harry had given his ghostwriter JR Moehringer – a Pulitzer Prize-winning author – access to unseen documents as they "spent months going through his private photo album, journals, emails and so forth" to piece together a complete picture of his life so far.

The source said: "This narrative that Meghan essentially stood over Harry as he wrote the book is way off the mark."

Speaking to HeatWorld, they then continued: "It naturally brought up some extremely raw feelings and surprise anecdotes, many of which came as a huge shock to Meghan when she read through the manuscript.”

Some of these shocks relate specifically to stories about Harry’s relationships in the past, including his turbulent on/off again relationship with socialite Chelsy Davy.

During the couple’s romantic time together, the young Prince was frequently seen flouting royal protocol as he engaged in very public displays of affection with the Zimbabwean student.

Harry also dated actress Cressida Bonas for two years between 2012 and 2014, before finally settling down with Meghan.

While the contents of the memoir is still a mystery, it seems unlikely that his former relationships will escape the cut, as his long term romances have obviously shaped him to become the man he is today.

Yet this could make for some awkward reading for Meghan, revealed the insider.

They added: “Harry didn’t want to brush over his past romances, so Chelsy and Cressida are going to find it tough.

“But there are tons of other revelations about his partying and some of the terrible choices he made that are tough to sugar-coat, to say the least.”

Despite some of the revelations however, the insider was adamant that it wouldn’t rock the young couple too much, as they admitted: “Meghan knows Harry had a very lively past – she wouldn’t have found him nearly as appealing if he hadn’t lived life to the full.”
