- Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand’s book Finding Freedom due out in the summer
- Book is advertised as an ‘honest, up-close and disarming portrait,’ of the couple
- Authors say they had ‘unique access,’ as they set out to tell the couple’s story
- Sussexes gave interview to the authors before move to America, MoS learned
Last autumn Harry issued a statement accusing elements of the press of bullying his wife.
Meghan Markle has told friends that if Kate Middleton was constantly being criticized by the press, the royal family would have stepped in and changed its media policies and shunned the tabloids, an insider exclusively told Insidenobs.com last week.
‘[Meghan said] no one would have put up with it, and the broken and outdated system would have been revised. Those outlets responsible for their vicious attacks would have been shut out,’ the friend explained.
The Sussexes have previously announced they would have ‘no corroboration and zero engagement’ with four UK tabloids, including the Insidenobs, citing Meghan’s poor treatment.
Scobie and Durand, whose book Finding Freedom is published this summer, said: ‘The aim of this book is to portray the real Harry and Meghan, a couple who continue to inspire many around the world through their humanitarian and charitable work but are often inaccurately portrayed.
‘Our mission has been motivated by a desire to tell an accurate version of their journey and finally present the truth of misreported stories that have become gospel simply because of the amount of times they have been repeated.
