Meghan and Harry are warned ‘dynamite’ new book to cause ‘serious harm’

A new book on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may cause "serious harm" and they would be better off preventing its publication, a royal expert has claimed.

Richard Fitzwilliams said the biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Finding Freedom, could be like "dynamite" after its release in August.

The smitten duo have not confirmed any involvement in the book after stepping down as senior royals this year.

But it is written "with the participation of those closest to the couple", according to its synopsis.

And Mr Fitzwilliams has warned it has the potential to severely strain relations with fellow royals and the public.

The commentator told Daily Star Online: "What this book has the potential to do is cause further serious harm."

He added: "This obviously has the potential to be dynamite. Officially Harry and Meghan are not admitting that it is, so to speak, their side of the story.

"As far as I know they are distancing themselves, but it is perfectly well known that the two journalists involved, particularly Omid Scobie, act so to speak like an unofficial spokesperson for the duo.

"But the interesting aspect of this book is that if you write a book called Finding Freedom, that means if you find freedom from something.

"You have to find freedom from something, something you clearly didn't like and something you felt incarcerated in.

"But the thing is every aspect of this book, every phrase will be picked apart to see what it says about various controversies and rumours which have beset their unhappy, as it turned out, two years as senior working members of the royal family."

And he believes the book has the potential to cause so much harm, they should have tried to stop it being released.

Mr Fitzwilliams continued: "My advice would have been not to authorise.

"If they didn't want this book to come out it wouldn't, so it will be seen to have their approval and I think it is totally unnecessary myself. But they don't, they see things in a totally different way."

He added: "In my opinion it would be sensible to let time heal, because the Queen obviously would love a relationship with Archie and there is no question that she made clear they would always be welcome back.

"That seems most unlikely, but the point is what you put in print has a very considerable effect, and whether you personally done it or those close to you, it could be seen as what they have approved.

"And if they make any comments which are critical of the royal family or hurtful that would be most unhelpful."
