UNITED KINGDOM: Tom Bower’s next is titled Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors. The royal biography is said to be containing accounts from “insiders who have never spoken before” and is due for release on July 21 in the United Kingdom.
The book is all set to expose the intricate mess surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their relationship with the Royal family.
The book, described as “one to be dreaded of” and written without the Duchess’ collaboration, will be published by Blink Publishing coming week, and extracts are already appearing in UK newspapers this weekend.
Tom Bower is a veteran in raising the curtain style of writing. He apparently all but eviscerates every one of his subjects, so this probably won’t be any different or pleasing to the subjects of the book. The author has previously blown open unheard facts about Simon Cowell, Prince Charles, and Ghislaine Maxwell’s father Robert.
“Tom Bower is Britain’s leading investigative biographer, unpicks the tangled web surrounding the Sussexes and their relationship with the royal family. From courtroom dramas to courtier politics, using extensive research, expert sourcing and interviews from insiders who have never spoken before, this book uncovers an astonishing story of love, betrayal, secrets and revenge,” said the publicity material.
Speaking about his upcoming biography, he said, “I have found out things which are really quite extraordinary about her (Meghan Markle). And I think that the public perception of her will be either confirmed or outraged or in any case, it’ll be a great surprise.”
“And it’s a great story. It is an astonishing story of a woman who came from nothing and is now a world figure and has trampled on all those others on the way which is classic for the sort of people I always choose, whether it’s a politician or a tycoon. The victims are keen to talk and they have spoken. And it’s a really gripping story,” Bower added.
He also commented, “It has turned out to be…a very, very hard slog because people were pretty reluctant to speak and she and her lawyers had done very well to keep people silent, but I got through enough.”
Royal commentator Sarah Robertson said Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are “dreaded” by the publication of the book. She said the biography “reveals an amazing story of love, betrayal, secrets and revenge”. Ms Robertson also revealed that Mr Bower had warned the Duchess of Sussex about the “explosive” book.
Robertson went on to say that the upcoming biography claims that Harry and Meghan had “blindsided” the Queen by choosing the name Lilibeth for their daughter who was born last year. “Harry phoned the Queen after her birthday and told her – not ask – told her their daughter was going to be called Lilibeth, blindsiding the Queen,” Robertson said.
Bower has spent more than a year collecting all the evidence and exclusive testimonies from both friends and enemies of Meghan Markle. Meanwhile, Prince Harry has his own memoir coming out with the original release date slated for late 2022.
