Meghan Markle has reportedly admitted to giving personal information to the authors of “Finding Freedom,” the tell-all book detailing her and Prince Harry’s exit from the British royal family.
Markle spilled her own tea to authors Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie in order to ensure her side of the story was included, The Telegraph reported on Wednesday.
According to docs lodged with the High Court, Markle revealed that she was worried “her father’s narrative” about her — including that she had allegedly abandoned him— might be included in the book. Therefore, she presented her own version of events to a source to pass along so “the true position…could be communicated to the authors to prevent any further misrepresentation,” the Telegraph reported.
Markle also reportedly insisted that she did not speak to the authors directly but that she couldn’t say whether the Kensington Palace communications team provided information on her behalf.
As Page Six previously reported, reps for the Royal family told us that Markle, 39, and Harry, 36, had no involvement with the tome.
“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to ‘Finding Freedom,’” a spokesperson for the couple told Page Six in July. “This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
We initially reported in May that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex spoke with their journalist friends for the bombshell biography on Megxit and their new life as commoners.
A description of the book states: “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. As members of the select group of reporters that cover the British Royal Family and their engagements, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand have witnessed the young couple’s lives as few outsiders can.”
