Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 'give interview for royal biography'

Commonwealth Day Service 2020

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have reportedly opened up to two journalists for a bombshell biography to be released later this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who are currently living in Los Angeles, are said to have spoken to Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand before moving there.

The book, which is to be called Thoroughly Modern Royals: The Real World of Harry and Meghan, was initially set for release in June, but was delayed to 11 August so the authors could include the couple stepping back as senior royals.

The Evening Standard reported Palace courtiers fear what the couple could say in the biography, with some believing the book could 'savage' monarchy.

Former press secretary to the Queen Dickie Arbiter, told The Times: "There is always concern when there is a book coming out, probably more so on this one if what we read is true that they have co-operated. If they have co-operated then there is concern. It also begs the question how much have they co-operated?"

However, he pointed out that Harry, 35, hasn't been "badly treated by the family" and so the exposé shouldn't have the same tone as the book his mother Diana did with Andrew Morton in 1992.

Scobie, who writes for Harper's Bazaar and hosted Yahoo UK's The Royal Story, was one of the journalists invited to Meghan's secret final event at the palace, when she met some of the Commonwealth young ambassadors before the Commonwealth Day service.

ITV's Tom Bradby, a friend of the couple, has previously said an interview with them "won't be pretty".

He was the documentary maker behind the couple's South Africa film, which made headlines when Meghan said: "Not many people have asked if I'm okay."

Meghan, 38, is currently taking Associated Newspapers (ANL) to court over publication of extracts of a letter she wrote to her father after her wedding to Harry in 2018.

They are believed to have dialled into a virtual High Court hearing on Friday, as ANL attempted to have sections of her claim struck out before a full trial.

The book will be published by New York-based Dey Street Books, and an e-book is already available for preorder for £7.49.
