Back in January, Meghan and Harry shocked the world when they announced they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the couple have been living in Los Angeles with their son, Archie.
This month, a new unauthorised biography about the couple, Finding Freedom, was released.
Published by Harper Collins, the book claims to go beyond the headlines, “dispelling the many rumours and misconceptions which have plagued the couple on both sides of the pond”.
Both royal reporters, Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand have an insight into the innermost workings of the Royal Family, and have claimed to witness the Meghan and Harry’s lives in a way few outsiders can.
The 368-page book is said to be 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”.
A spokesperson for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex has denied the couple had anything to do with the biography.
Despite the book raising eyebrows among royal circles, royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said the book is not a “seismic bridge burning” with the Royal Family.
He told Express.co.uk: “Finding Freedom wasn’t a seismic bridge burning with the Royal Family because the Queen and Prince Charles were praised.
“Obviously the comments about the Cambridge’s and about the institution will not have been popular so it has simply reinforced their current intention.
“The Queen has mentioned to Harry she will welcome him back but their current intention obviously is too forge their own independent careers so obviously the current situation of royal titles is something which seems like it needs to continued.”
Although Her Majesty is open for Prince Harry to return as senior member of the Royal Family, the same cannot be said for others who have left The Firm.
Sarah Ferguson married Prince Andrew back in 1986 and the couple had two daughters, Princess Beatrice and Eugenie.
However, their marriage was short-lived after the couple divorced in 1996.

In a huge royal scandal at the time, the Duchess was pictured in 1992 having her toes sucked during an intimate holiday with Texan millionaire John Bryan.
The pictures were published just five months after Fergie and Andrew told the world they planned to separate.
This rocked the Firm and marked the beginning of a strenuous relationship with Sarah and her in-laws.
Mr Fitzwilliams continued: “The Queen is very fond of harry and the situation of Sarah Ferguson is different because she was someone who freeloaded and someone who had no sense of responsibility.
“The fact that Meghan and Harry can’t use ‘royal’ is the way it is and that is likely to continue.
“As far as Sarah Ferguson is concerned, there is no question when she was stripped of HRH, she lost it when they divorced.
“She was a disaster as a royal, she had no sense of dignity and her behaviour was deplorable and I think no one was surprised of that.
“I think everyone expected her to lose it.
“The titles are a gift from the Queen but as far as Sarah Ferguson is concerned, she was considered a breath of fresh air but she was in fact someone without dignity and someone without any real idea of what the role actually involved when it came to a public image.
“We’ve seen a whole series of disasters.
“So obviously, in that case it was totally justifiable to remove HRH.”
