'Finding Freedom's' New Chapters Could Be 'Final Straw' | 22 Words

An updated version of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's biography, Finding Freedom, is set to be released later this year...

And according to royal experts, the new chapters could well and truly be the "final straw" for Prince Harry.


Here are all the details...

Now, the couple's biography, Finding Freedom, was first released in August last year.


Written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, the book contains a lot of intimate knowledge of the famous pair.

It offers a glimpse into the couple's life as senior royals, while discussing their shocking exit.

The Daily Mail reported that Scobie said that while they didn't formally interview the couple, many friends gave them insights - providing "a lens to the couple through their friends and their circle of aides."

Initially priced at $27, the book was declared a bestseller...


And the Daily Mail reported that 31,000 copies of the book were sold in the U.K in the first 5 days of its release, according to figures from data provider Nielsen Book.

When first released, author and royal correspondent, Scobie took to Instagram to thank people for its success.

He wrote, "Just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who has picked up #FindingFreedom and helped make it a global bestseller on the first day of sale. Your support means everything and I really hope you enjoy reading it."

But sadly, along with the book's roaring success, feathers were ruffled by its release.


It was reported that Harry's relationship with his family was tarnished even more following the release of the intimate biography... and not to mention the explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that would follow a few months later!

The couple's "tell-all" interview has been the talk of the world since it aired in March...


And they made some shocking accusations against the monarchy, including claims of racism and a huge lack of mental health support; especially when Meghan was feeling suicidal.

It was also claimed that a senior member of the family "raised concerns" over the color of Archie's skin before he was born...


And Meghan suggested this was the reason why her son wasn't given an official royal title.

It was all unbelievably scandalous...


And there's no doubt that the royal family are struggling more than ever to maintain their prestigious reputation.

Of course, it's been reported that their relationship with Harry and Meghan is almost non-existent...

Especially due to the fact the couple are living their new lives in Los Angeles with Archie while expecting their second child.

But now, it seems as if tensions are about to rise...


Because an updated version of Finding Freedom is set to be released this summer.

According to The Sunday Times, it will be updated with new chapters which will cover their Oprah interview...


And the tragic death of Prince Philip, which saw Meghan unable to attend the royal funeral due to medical advise.

It will also discuss their multi-million dollar deals with Netflix and Spotify...


As well as their new life in California and the Queen's decision to strip them of their royal patronages.

‚ÄčThe updated versions will go on sale on August 5th...


And quite predictably, they're already in high demand.

But there has been a warning over the new and revised chapters that will be in the updated copies.


Duncan Larcombe, the author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story, has warned there will be "no chance" of reconciliation if the book divulges more negative information about the royals or in-depth details of any personal conversations between Harry and his family after the funeral.

"That really will be the final straw," he told Closer magazine.


"That'll be it - there will be no chance of a reconciliation ever and all trust will be broken."

The royal author continued:


"How could anyone from the royal family trust them again if the intimate details of conversations were leaked. Why would they want anything more to do with them? Those chapters will be extremely telling as to the state of the royal rift as it stands now, and to where it'll head in the future."

A senior courtier then told The Sunday Times:


"The Oprah interview detonated a bomb under the Royal Family and most of them are still reeling in shock. The book will not help."

Another senior royal source added, "After Oprah, what else is there to say?"


"But whatever's said will be a bombshell - everyone is just so gripped by the situation."

So, there you have it.
