Harry and Meghan ‘making little progress’ in reconciling with the royal family, Finding Freedom says


According to the author of Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are “making very little progress” in their reconciliation with the royal family.

During an interview on Good Morning America on Tuesday, author Omid Scobie, who co-wrote the biography with Carolyn Durand, discussed the deterioration in the couple’s relationship with the royal family.

He said: ‘When we speak to sources close to the couple and also sources close to the royal family, there is this feeling that very little progress is being made.’

However, he said that “some feelings have subsided” over time, and that the door is “very much open” for such discussions to take place at some point.

“I think one thing was clear from both sides is that everyone feels that some accountability and ownership in each other’s roles in all of this has to be taken for people to move forward. Whether that happens, we shall see,” the ABC News contributor added.

Meanwhile, Scobie said that claims of Meghan’s bullying made by a top Palace official prior to the Oprah Winfrey interview were ‘revenge’ from The Firm for the Duke and Duchess’ conduct.


The Palace said it will look into Meghan’s reported dismissal of two personal aides from the home. Meghan’s attorneys claimed she was the target of a “smear campaign” at the time.

Scobie said: ‘For me, it’s impossible to come to any other conclusion that this is some sort of revenge from the institution that we saw pulled into action just before the Oprah interview came out.’

He added: ‘One of the sources that we spoke to in the book said it was the classic “Oppo dump” which you see before a presidential election.’

After stepping aside from their royal duties, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have established a life in Los Angeles alongside their celebrity neighbors.

Buckingham Palace said earlier this year that Harry and Meghan will not be returning as working royals. Soon after, the two sat down for an eye-opening interview with CBS, in which they detailed their resignation.

Meghan revealed during her interview with Oprah that a member of the royal family discussed Archie’s skin color before he was born, and “what that would mean or look like.” She further stated that joining ‘the firm’ made her feel suicidal.

The creator of the Invictus Games expressed his concern about the overt racism and bigotry towards his wife in the British press. “I hadn’t really thought about the mixed-race piece, because I thought, well, firstly, you know, I’ve spent many years doing the work and doing my own learning,” he said. “But my upbringing in the system, of which I was brought up in and what I’ve been exposed to, it wasn’t — I wasn’t aware of it, to start with. But, my god, it doesn’t take very long to suddenly become aware of it.”

Mr Scobie also stated that the pair was in charge of their new life and that he admired how they were creating their own legacy.

The pair is now ‘thriving,’ according to the author, who added: ‘Fast forward to a life in the US where they are very much in control.

‘The Archewell legacy they’re building – this is the couple showing the world exactly what is important to them.’

Meanwhile he said the couple had no intention of leaving the public eye in search of privacy, revealing: ‘It’s not that they want to disappear or not be seen. It’s simply that they want to choose what they keep private and what they share with the world.’
