The Duke and Duchess of Susses denied their contribution to a new book on their lives within the British royal family.
“Finding Freedom,” which is being published in episodes in The Times, claimed that Harry, Megan, the Duke of William William and the Duchess of Cambridge Kate were barely talking to each other until March.
The book also says that friends of Prince Harry and Meghan were referring to some officials at the palace and calling them “snakes.”
A spokesman for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who now lives in California, said that no dialogue had been made with them for the book.
He said in a statement: “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were neither interviewed nor contributed to the book.”
“This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press team and on their independent journalistic work,” the statement added.
The authors of the book, Omid Scooby and Caroline Durand, describe what they say is a culture of growing tension between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and other members of the royal family.
The authors said that Harry and Megan felt that their complaints were not taken seriously and believed that other royal families leaked stories about them to the press.
The authors wrote: “There were only a handful of people working in the palace that they could trust.”
The authors said, “A friend of Harry and Meghan referred to the old guard at the palace and described them as snakes.”
“At the same time, a frustrated civil servant at the palace described the working group with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as” the most vocal “in the palace.”
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex now reside in Los Angeles, California, after they gave up their royal duties earlier this year.
For their last public appearance as active members of the royal family, they joined the Queen and other dignitaries at the Commonwealth Day mass at Westminster Abbey on March 9.
Since then, the couple began their new independent life in the United States, following up on their charitable projects.
Earlier this month, Megan made a speech at a summit on gender equality, while the Duke and Duchess of Youth spoke about equal rights during weekly contact via video technology for the Queen Commonwealth Society.
Meanwhile, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex sued the United States after reportedly using drones to photograph their infant son Archie.
The move is the latest example of the actions taken by Harry and Meghan against what he previously described as “intrusive,” tabloid media.
Megan is also suing the newspaper publisher of “Mail on Sunday” and the website of the newspaper “Mail Online” for “violating privacy and infringing property rights,” but the publisher denies these charges.
Hard coin missing the book “Finding Freedom”
BBC Correspondent for Royal Affairs
There are some stunning headlines accompanying the publication of “Finding Freedom” in episodes, but those looking for evidence of a crime may be disappointed.
Finding reliable and reference sources and quoting from them is the hard currency for books dealing with the lives of members of the royal family. Finding Freedom is a good source book. The authors have relied heavily on their knowledge of the various palaces
Despite the brilliant headlines, the book does not reveal any new reliable sources, according to what has been mentioned so far in the episodes published. We know that William’s relationship with his brother Harry was greatly corrupted, and that Megan felt that the palace had abandoned it.
