The news has prompted Scobie could focus his second book on Meghan, due to the reported speculation close working relationship he has with the duchess.

FindingFreedom, to bestseller, was sympathetic towards Meghansparking speculation she collaborated with its authors – something the duchess’s team denied when it was published in 2020.

But in 2022 the couple’s former communications secretary, Jason Knauf, testified in a London court that he gave the writers information and discussed it with Harry and Meghan.

In response, Meghan apologized for misleading the court about the extent of her cooperation with Scobie and Durand.

Publisher Dey Street said Scobie’s new book will focus “on a new chapter of the royal story and feature unique insight, deep access, and exclusive revelations.”

Some reports are suggesting the book could counter claims made by Tom Bower in his book, revenge.

Bower paints a scathing picture of Meghan and Prince Harry, and their rift with the Windsors.

It includes a number of allegations about Meghanincluding that she rejected a suggestion by the Queen and the Prince of Wales that she fly to the US to reconcile with her father months after the royal wedding.

Bower says Prince Harry “inflamed emotions by repeatedly drawing comparisons between his wife and Diana,” adding, “The more Harry drew parallels with his mother, the more Meghan must have been convinced of her importance to the monarchy.”

Later this year the Duke of Sussex is set to release his memoirs, due out by Christmas.
