‘Finding Freedom’ Reveals What the Royals REALLY Thought About Meghan
‘Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family’ is finally here! The long-awaited authorized biography of the Sussexes has hit the shelves at last, and we have a lot of fascinating tidbits to share.
Let’s start with what the other Royals allegedly thought about Meghan when Harry brought her home.
My theory is that Prince Charles is actually quite fond of Meghan, and that he never wanted them to be pushed out. Charles seemed genuinely pleased to walk Meghan down the aisle after her own father proved himself to be such a disaster. We’ve never heard any negative messaging from his camp; everything is rumored to be coming from William, Kate, or the Queen.
According to the anonymous sources who spoke to Finding Freedom authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durandt, Meghan “found such a supportive and loving father in Charles, which has really changed her life for the better.”
As for Charles, he had quickly “taken a real shine to Meghan. She’s a sassy, confident, beautiful American. He likes very strong, confident women. She’s bright, and she’s self-aware, and I can see why they’ve struck up a very quick friendship.”
If Prince Charles is pro-Meghan, what about Her Majesty the Queen? Another palace insider claimed that Elizabeth had a great deal of confidence in Meghan’s ability to represent the crown. According to the source, “she [Meghan] handles these situations flawlessly because she’s always well prepared and respectful. She’s very clever and good at understanding what’s required.”
In 2018, once Meghan had officially joined the family, the Queen invited her to go on a solo day trip together on an official engagement. Her Majesty apparently gave Meghan a pair of earrings on the train–pearl and diamond, according to the source.
But what about Prince William? The Cambridges and their courtiers seemed to be the ones most worried about Harry and Meghan. Beyond the long-standing rumor that William warned Harry not to rush things with the divorced, biracial American actress, we’ve been hearing for years that the Cambridges felt jealous and competitive with the Sussexes.
Eagle-eyed Royal Watchers noticed patterns of stories coming from within the Cambridges’ camp. Those stories undermined the Sussexes while making William and Kate look better by comparison. In Finding Freedom, an inside source spelled things out as clearly as possible:
“There had been moments where he [Harry] felt people working with his brother had put things out there to make William look good, even if it meant throwing Harry under the bus. It was a confusing time, and his head was all over the place—he didn’t know who or what to believe, and he and William weren’t talking enough either, which made everything a lot worse.”
