When we heard that royal experts Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand were blessing us with a Prince Harry and Meghan Markle biography last year, you can say we were quite excited. So, the fact that we’re apparently getting an updated version of that book in the not-too-distant future has us on the edge of our seat with anticipation.
Called Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, the tell-all book contains a variety of stories about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Released in August, the book quickly became 2020's Sunday Times number 1 bestselling biography.
Now, not even a year later, we’re reportedly getting an updated version of the biography with brand-new chapters. Per the Sunday Times, the latest version will cover their recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Philip’s funeral and more.
It’s important to note that Scobie denied that the report was entirely accurate, tweeting “A not-so-accurate report about Finding Freedom in the Sunday Times, who didn’t even bother asking for comment before falsely claiming a paperback edition will feature new chapters that will “reopen royal rifts”. Why let facts get in the way of a spicy story though, eh?” Interesting.
Both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex claim they had nothing to do with it. In July, a spokesperson released a statement on behalf of the duo, which read: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
Unfortunately, not too many other details have been revealed regarding the update, however, the outlet is reporting a possible “summer” release.
We guess we will have to wait and see.
