The reasons behind why Prince Harry and Meghan Markle quit the royal family…
The authors behind Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s new biography Finding Freedom claim the Duchess of Sussex is behind the prince’s very public ‘woke’ journey.
The MailOnline reports today that authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand highlight how Meghan played a pivotal role in helping her husband become more attuned to racism.
During an interview with National Public Radio in the United States, Scobie said: “Harry’s journey to wokeness has been very public.
“We’ve seen him learning and educating himself along the way, but this experience of witnessing Meghan face racist remarks and commentary would have been the first time he’d seen someone in his life or someone he was particularly close to affected by it in a certain way.
“We talk about some of the more obvious examples in some of the media coverage but I think that the things that have flown under the radar are some of the othering of Meghan we’ve seen.
“We’ve sort of seen it repeatedly that she’s not one of us. And now, what do they mean by not one of us?
“And I think there are things like that which Harry’s really had to become more attuned to and learn to see when it happens in front of him. And Meghan would have been the person that guided him on that journey. “
The authors also discussed the events that eventually led to the duke and duchess taking a step back from the royal family.
Caroline Durand said: “Harry really was looking out for his family.
“His wife felt aggrieved, and they thought that the best decision that they could make was to step back, have a little bit more privacy but still be in a situation where they could carry on their mission, devote themselves to the causes that were so important to them.”
