Book Review – Finding Freedom: Harry & Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family

Omid Scobie & Carolyn Durand (2/5 Stars)

Read this if you:
· will ingest any royal family content you can get your hands on
· want to know exactly what food is served at the family’s Christmas and special events
· don’t mind a little bias

This book details Meghan and Harry’s time together, from their first blind date to their decision to leave the royal family, revealing the many reasons behind this unprecedented decision. The authors, who are top royal reporters and have had access to the couple behind the scenes, aim to dispel many of the rumours and false allegations that have plagued the couple both in the UK and in North America.

My thoughts on the book:
I LOVE the royal family and especially Harry and Meghan but this book did not do it for me. It was heartbreaking to read about the terrible things that were said about the couple and how most of the country (and some of the family) made Meghan feel like an outsider. I did find most of the details to be incredibly biased though, especially the comparisons to Kate. Throughout the book, as the authors talk about the headlines and unflattering stories about themselves that the couple had to endure, they explain that the Firm forbade Meghan and Harry from responding to the press and denying the allegations. This book felt like one long rebuttal to every false news story that has ever been published about them.
