The price of the book that speaks about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s journey and exit from royal duties is dropping day by day. Interestingly the Duke and Duchess of Sussex never contributed to the book.
What’s the story?
The book, Finding Freedom was written by royal reporters Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie. It was first released in August and initially sold at £20. A spokesman for the couple, however, revealed, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom. This book is based on the authors’ own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting.”
Now the price of the book on eBay seems to be dropping. A number of sellers are giving the book away for less than £10. One seller has put a copy of the book on eBay at just £0.99 as well. Another online seller has put the biography up for £4.50 and has also received zero bids so far. But why is the price dropping? Is it because the couple was never associated with it officially? Whatever the reason is, the low price definitely suggests that the book is lacking interest among readers.
What’s in the book?
The low prices and lack of bids suggest interest in the book is falling online. The Duke and Duchess shocked the nation when they decided to step down as senior members of the Royal Family last year. Mr Scobie and Ms Durand, the book’s authors wrote the book depicting the exit of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and senior members of the royal family.
They said that there were increasing tensions between the Sussexes and other members of the Royal Family. “There were just a handful of people working at the palace they could trust.” The also wrote, “A friend of the couple’s referred to the old guard as ‘the vipers’.” “Meanwhile, a frustrated palace staffer described the Sussexes’ team as ‘the squeaky third wheel’ of the palace.”
