Not too long ago, a new royal book focusing on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship was published, named Finding Freedom.

The authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand worked as royal journalists for years, and they’ve closely followed the careers of Meghan and Harry as a result, and the book detailed a series of events which took place around the time of Harry and Meghan stepping down from their royal duties.

Now, another bombshell book has been released, by the hand of royal biographer Robert Lacey, which has dug deep into Buckingham Palace rifts.

The book, named Battle of Brothers, is an exploration of the relationship between Prince Harry, 36, and his brother Prince William, 38, including the reported ‘rift’ which formed between them as Harry and Meghan left Britain.

And excerpts from the book have now been serialised in the Daily Mail, ahead of its release on October 15.

Here’s what the explosive biography brings to light…

Meghan and Harry labelled as ‘erratic and impulsive’

In the book, it has been written that the Queen felt Harry and Meghan were “erratic and impulsive” during the time they were stepping down from their royal duties.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex made the announcement that they were stepping down on their Instagram account, saying they have had months of “reflection and internal discussions”.

Prince William refused lunch with Prince Harry

The author of Battle of Brothers said that Prince William was supposedly so furious about Harry’s behaviour following the announcement of “Megxit” that he refused to have lunch with his younger brother, leaving Harry to dine with the Queen instead.

Meghan coined as ‘miserably self-indulgent’

Meghan’s famous interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby saw the 39 year old mum-of-one claim that no one had asked if she was “okay.”

As a result, the book says that the Queen's private secretary Sir Edward Young viewed Meghan’s interview as having a “bizarre tone-deafness,” with him adding that she was “miserably self-indulgent.”

Harry to ‘know his place’

During the Queen’s Christmas speech towards the end of 2019, the monarch had an array of family photos visible on her desk, including one of William and his family, however there was no photo of Harry, Meghan and their new son Archie.

The book claims Harry took this as a signal about his place as a “spare” to the “heir.”

Harry and Meghan ‘wanted guarantees on everything’

The book also details how Harry and Meghan’s split was like ‘negotiating with ‘a hard-nosed Hollywood lawyer.’

A source reportedly said: “The Sussexes wanted guarantees on every single point as if it were a contractual negotiation."
