Penned by Harper's Bazaar royal editor Omid Scobie and Elle magazine's royal correspondent Carolyn Durand, Finding Freedom promises to tell the real royal story.
Prince Harry and wife Meghan are releasing a book detailing the truths and lies that have made up – and continue to make up – their time in the public eye.
Finding Freedom promises to debunk misconceptions and rumours while revealing unknown details about Meghan and Harry’s life together with the hope of adding clarity to the many royal headlines around the world.
“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,” journalists Scobie and Durand said in a press release.
“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.
"It is thanks to our sources that we have been able to share the definitive story of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
The publishing house says it was written “with the participation of those closest to the couple,” but the sources will probably stay secret, for obvious reasons.
The book was reportedly set to come out in June, but its release date has been pushed to August due to COVID-19.
While the authors promise sources that offer the inside scoop on the royal couple, it is understood that this is not an official or endorsed project by Harry or Meghan, and it doesn't claim to have interviews with the couple, as was previously rumoured.
Scobie has been an admirer and defender of Meghan since her relationship with Harry began in 2016. He was one of the few journalists invited to her tearful farewell to Buckingham Palace staff in early March when she carried out her last public engagement and departed London for Canada.
Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, and baby Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, who turns 1 on Wednesday, have since moved to her hometown of Los Angeles where they are building a new non-royal life while in quarantine during the coronavirus pandemic.
Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family will be published in Britain and the Commonwealth on August 11.
The book will be published in the US the same day by HarperCollins-owned Dey Street Books.
