Publisher's Summary

From Andrew Morton, the New York Times best-selling author of Diana: Her True Story, comes a revealing, juicy, and inspiring biography of Meghan Markle, the American actress who won Prince Harry's heart. 

When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were set up by a mutual friend on a blind date in July 2016, little did they know that the resulting whirlwind romance would lead to their engagement in November 2017 and marriage in May 2018.  

Since then, our fascination with the woman who has smashed the royal mold has rocketed. So different from those coy brides of recent history, Meghan is confident, charismatic, and poised; her warm and affectionate engagement interview won the hearts of the world.  

In this first-ever biography of the duchess-to-be, acclaimed royal biographer Andrew Morton goes back to Meghan's roots to uncover the story of her childhood growing up in The Valley in Los Angeles, her studies at an all-girls Catholic school, and her fraught family life - a painful experience mirrored by Harry's own background. Morton also delves into her previous marriage and divorce in 2013, her struggles in Hollywood as her mixed heritage was time and again used against her, her big break in the hit TV show Suits, and her work for a humanitarian ambassador - the latter so reminiscent of Princess Diana's passions. 

Finally, we see how the royal romance played out across two continents but was kept fiercely secret, before the news finally broke and Meghan was thrust into the global media spotlight like never before. Drawing on exclusive interviews with her family members and closest friends, Morton introduces us to the real Meghan as he reflects on the impact that she has already had on the rigid traditions of the House of Windsor, as well as what the future might hold.

Book offers no new material

Is there anything you would change about this book?

More on the record interviews

Any additional comments?

Unfortunately, this doesn't include any new material that hasn't been printed already in the American or British tabloids. It's a fairly superficial recounting of what we already know about Meghan Markle's life. While it is technically an unauthorized biography, it might as well be officially sanctioned.

This book is so bad it put me off books.

Snide, sniping, sarcastic and just plain crass. This book is so bad in its description of Harry, Meghan and pretty much everyone mentioned. Not sure who if any sources actually were interviewed, thus book cones off as a titillating story ripped straight from The Daily Mail entertainment section.

Wait for a more "in depth" book to be written

This book was ok, but it read like a Wikipedia page. You're better off waiting for a more indepth and personal book to be released.
