Finding Freedom paints a detailed picture of the love story between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the difficult circumstances that led to their separation from the British Royal Family.
by Omid Scobie
When Prince Harry announced his engagement to American actor Meghan Markle in 2017, the union sparked interest in the British Royal Family for a new generation. The world watched as Markle, best known for her role in American drama series Suits, became a princess marrying her prince, and welcomed their first child a year later. But the world also watched on as ugly headlines from tabloids disparaged Markle and eventually drove the young family out of the United Kingdom.
Finding Freedom tells the story of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, from the beginnings of their extraordinary romance, to the exploitative ways the media pushed a wedge between Markle and her family. Through accounts from more than 100 sources, we see an intimate picture of a couple attempting to forge their own path, away from the shackles of tradition and institutions.
Journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand have covered the royal family extensively in publications like Harper's Bazaar, ABC News, Elle.com, and Oprah.com. Finding Freedom is the result of more than two years of reporting, as well as the authors' first-hand accounts of observing and interacting with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle during formal and informal royal engagements.

"In trying to find a sustainable way of life for himself and Meghan, Harry found himself more at odds with his family than ever. It wasn't an easy decision to stand up to the age-old rules of the monarchy, but for Harry, this was his only option."
– Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand
