Meghan & Harry Distance Themselves From Upcoming Book That Claims Meghan Rejected Flowers Kate Sent Her & Says She Blames Racism For Hate

​ ​ ​ ​

A bombshell book about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship with the royal family is set to drop. The book claims Meghan rejected a peace offering from her sister-in-law Kate Middleton and touches on her fight with British media. The couple claims they haven’t made any contributions to the book. More inside….

Folks just won't let Meg live!

A new book from a royal biographer is set to drop that will drop details about alleged incidents that happened between members of the royal family behind-the-scenes.

Excerpts from a new biography by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claim Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, rejected a peace offering from Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge. The book also made claims that the former “Suits” actress believes successful women of color are called “demanding or aggressive” because of “sexist and racist” attitudes.

The book is titled “Finding Freedom” and supposedly quotes a number of close friends and associates of Meghan and Harry. It’s being serialized in The Times and Sunday Times up until its published August 11th.

The book claims the divide between Meghan and Kate stemmed from having “nothing in common other than the fact that they lived at Kensington Palace.” Royal biographer Kate Nicholls claims Kate sent Meghan flowers as a peace offering to “rectify the situation,” but they were allegedly “rejected” by the Duchess of Sussex.

“Meghan told Kate in no uncertain terms that flowers were not enough,” Kate Nicholls wrote.

According to the book, by the time Harry and Meghan were due to officially drop their royal roles, the two royal households were barely speaking.

 

 

The book also claims Meghan feels like women of color are called “demanding and aggressive” because of “sexist and racist” attitudes.

The Mirror reports:

Extracts from new biography Finding Freedom, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, claim a friend said that she was seen as ‘Duchess Different’ and because she stood out she was not liked by some.

The friend said: "It was open season on Meghan, with many looking for anything and everything to criticise ‘“Duchess Different".

“That’s what people have a problem with. She’s the easiest person in the world to work with. Certain people just don’t like the fact she stands out.”’

The book claims rumors about her wasting no time to put a “stamp” on her new role which fed her decisive and assertive nature.

The authors wrote: "Meghan felt as though some of the commentary and tabloid stories were more than a culture clash; they were sexist and prejudiced. "If a man got up before dawn to work, he was applauded for his work ethic. "If a woman did it, she was deemed difficult or “a bitch”. The double standard was exacerbated when it came to successful women of colour, often labelled demanding or aggressive.’

Meghan and Harry issued a statement distancing themselves from the book. They claim they were not interviewed for the biography and did not make ANY contributions to it, according to the NY Times.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to 'Finding Freedom'," a spokesperson for the couple said in a statement. "This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting", the statement added.

And that’s that on that.

The royal couple has already launched lawsuits on British tabloids for invasion of privacy and constantly publishing negative and untrue stories about them.

Today, a London judge held a hearing in the case.

Page Six reports:

The Duchess of Sussex is making a legal bid to protect the identity of the women who spoke out to complain that she was being bullied. She’s currently suing the Mail on Sunday newspaper for breach of privacy after it published a private letter she had sent to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.

The High Court heard that one of Markle’s best friends arranged the interviews as she was close to People’s editor. The Mail on Sunday argued that their interviews are central to the case because one of them — known only in the public documents as “Friend B” — referred to the existence of Markle’s letter during her interview.

It maintained that following the People magazine interviews that were published last year ”neither the existence nor the contents of the Letter were confidential.”

Mail on Sunday publisher Associated Newspapers said the names should be made public and argued that Markle cannot fight for their privacy since she “freely” named them in court documents.

Earlier this month, the Mail on Sunday’s legal team told the Duchess’ lawyers that they regarded the names of the friends as being “properly reportable by the media.”

No date has been set for this trial but if it does reach that stage it is possible that Meghan’s father will have to give evidence against his daughter.

The newspaper maintains it was acting in the public interest as Markle was — at that time — a senior working member of the royal family who was publicly funded.

Fingers crossed she scores a victory.

The 38-year-old mom spoke to young women around the world during the 2020 Girl Up Leadership Summit where she spoke out about the fight against gender and racial inequality.

While quoting the Dalai Lama, Meghan said, "Compassion doesn’t mean we shouldn’t feel anger and outrage when we see blatant injustice all around us—of course we should. But I challenge you to broaden that feeling. The Dalai Lama famously said, 'Compassion is the radicalism of our time.' Compassion means seeing the pain and suffering of others and knowing it’s our duty to try to help relieve it."

"I say to you, keep challenging, keep pushing, make them a little uncomfortable. Because it’s only in that discomfort that we actually create the conditions to reimagine our standards, our policies, and our leadership," she said
