A new book claims to reveal how Harry and Meghan became disillusioned with the Royal Family and the events that led to them leaving the UK.

Finding Freedom, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, is due to be published in August and is being serialised in The Times and The Sunday Times.

It claims the relationship between the Sussexes and Harry's brother William and sister-in-law Kate became so bitter by March that they barely spoke to each other at a Westminster Abbey service, despite not having seen each other since January.

"While Harry and Meghan both greeted William and Kate with smiles, the Cambridges showed little response," the book says. "It was the first time the two couples had seen each other since January.

It says William nodded at Harry to acknowledge him but ignored Meghan.

"Although Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate, the duchess barely acknowledged her," the book adds.

The couple, who married in 2018, now lives in Los Angeles with their 14-month-old son Archie, after stepping down from royal duties in March.

While the media speculated that Meghan was behind the decision for the couple to step back, the book says she was "willing to do whatever it takes" to make it work.
