Royal biographies are ten-a-penny these days, but the latest release has been particularly hotly anticipated. It is Finding Freedom, published this week and written by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, who aim to provide "the definitive story of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex", or Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to the rest of us.

The official line from the couple is that Finding Freedom is not an "authorised book" and that they were not interviewed on or off the record.

The most they will venture to say, via a spokesperson, is that they were "relaxed" about the authors' access to their inner circle. And yet, royal watchers remain unconvinced.
