• An upcoming book about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is allegedly sparking fear among royal aides
  • The royal aides are allegedly concerned that the book will negatively portray Prince William  
  • The book has been compared to Princess Diana's "damaging" statement 

The upcoming book that promises to tell Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s story is sparking concerns among royal aides, who allegedly fear that Prince William may take the blame for the Sussexes’ departure from the royal family, famously dubbed as “Megxit.”

The Sun reported that these aides are bracing themselves for the book “Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of A Modern Royal Family,” which they believe will paint Prince William as the bad guy. They reportedly believe this could trigger another rift between him and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

A source told the publication that royal aides are afraid that the Duke of Cambridge may be seen as “unsympathetic, unfeeling and unsupportive” of his brother and his wife when they left their senior posts in January.

In addition, the insider, as per the publication, claimed that it could wreak havoc just like what happened after Princess Diana’s statement “there were three of us in a marriage.” This bombshell quote alluded to Camilla Parker Bowles and the People’s Princess’ then-husband Prince Charles’ affair. The source revealed that the royal aides have been concerned that the book will only tell Prince Harry and Markle’s side of the story.

“They are worried William especially will be portrayed in a bad light. This sort of family spat shouldn’t be out there in public,” the insider said, referring to the worried aides.

The book is allegedly described as the “most damaging thing” to the influential clan following Princess Diana’s now-infamous statement from her interview with Martin Bashir on “Panorama.”

“The concern is it will somehow paint him as an unfeeling baddie against kind and philanthropic Harry and Meghan,” the insider added.

Since the upcoming book “Finding Freedom” was hinted, it has caused quite a stir. It is written by royal reporters Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie.

Despite promising to tell the truth about the royal couple, it is not a biography of the pair. As Town and Country reported, the controversial book may not include interviews of Prince Harry and Markle, contrary to earlier reports.

The book aims to tell the “accurate” version of the journey of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, unlike the misreported stories that have been making the rounds.
