The new book claiming to set the record straight on Megxit and the relationship between Meghan and Harry with the Royal Family is likely going to be one painful summer reading for the Queen, according to royal commentator Roya Nikkhah Ms Nikkhah analysed the claims, recriminations and accusations made by sources close to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex in Finding Freedom, a biography of Meghan and Harry by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. 

And she believes the person who will suffer the most from this account will be the Queen.

Ms Nikkhah wrote in The Times: “The book is likely to make particularly hurtful reading for the Queen, the grandmother Harry has said he ‘adores’, if indeed a copy finds its way to Balmoral, where she is about to decamp for her summer break with most of her family.”

Her Majesty is due to leave for her Scottish home alongside Prince Philip in early August, as confirmed by Buckingham Palace last week.

The royal commentator noted how several senior royals and their aides come under fire in the book, accused of sidelining the Duke and Duchess of Sussex or even ignoring their pleas.  

Hopes Megxit, allowing Meghan, Harry and Archie to set up a more independent life abroad as they desired, would heal the wound were shattered by this book, Ms Nikkhah said.

She wrote: “Whatever the past turmoil, the Queen’s hope was certainly shared by the rest of her family.

“But they come under heavy artillery fire in Finding Freedom, page after page. 

“We are told Harry has lost respect for part of the institution and certain family members, and that the Sussexes left the UK “battered and bruised by…lack of support from members of the Royal Family”.

A friend of Prince Harry expressed their disbelief at the claims against the Duke’s family and the Crown made in this book.

They said: “The old Harry would never do this.  

“It’s needless drama, drama, drama. He’s so far gone.

“They got most of what they asked for, they got the Queen’s public support and they’re out in California with Archie planning their new life the way they wanted it.

“But they can’t let go of the past and move on. It’s so sad.”

Both the book’s authors and the Sussexes have said Meghan and Harry didn’t collaborate in any way on Finding Freedom. 

In a statement, a spokesman for the Sussexes said: “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.”

Meghan and Prince Harry announced their decision to step back as senior royals in January, when they published a bombshell statement on their Instagram page and launched a new website, SussexRoyal.com, in which they outlined what they hoped their future within the Royal Family would look like. 

Following negotiations between Harry, the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex agreed on relinquish the use of their HRH styles as well as the right to carry out royal duties.

Similarly, Prince Harry lost his honorary military titles and the couple can’t use their Sussex Royal brand anymore.

A few days before they officially stepped down as senior royals, the Duke and Duchess moved to Los Angeles with their one-year-old son, Archie Harrison.
