"Our interest in Meghan Markle and Harry is waning", so the experts comment on the flop of "Finding Freedom", the burning biography on Sussex
Finding Freedom fell short of Harry and Meghan Markle's expectations, at least from a sales point of view. In fact, it seems that the decisive biography that should have revealed how things really went between the Sussex and Kate Middleton, William and the rest of the Royal Family did not arouse great interest.
Last spring the announcement of Finding Freedom, the book written independently and without the collaboration of Harry and Meghan, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, had shaken the Palace, promising burning revelations that would have put the court in a bad light for the way he would treat Lady Markle and consequently her consort that they would feel obliged to leave the Royal Family as the only solution to their problems.
Many accusations have been made against the Palace, such as that of having used "two weights and two measures" against Kate and Meghan, where the former has always been defended from media attacks, while the latter would have been left at the mercy of her fate without no intervention by the Monarchy. Other details concern the relationship between the two sisters-in-law and between William and Harry. The first accused of trying to dissuade his brother from marrying Meg.
In short, a series of details on the Windsors that should have attracted the attention of readers from all over the world. But the biography released in August 2020 did not arouse the hoped-for interest. Not only that, even before it hit bookshelves, the price had already been lowered. And now the sales balance has revealed a real flop, at least according to what New Idea reports.
Interest in Finding Freedom appears to have faded soon after its announcement. Probably everything that was interesting in it was revealed in advance by the media, causing sales of the book to collapse.
TV presenter and real-life expert Storm Huntley analyzed the situation by stating on the Jeremy Vine show: "Evidently our interest in Harry and Meghan Markle is waning and our interest in this book is non-existent." Confirming that the court gossip about Sussex no longer has a hold in the public, the presenter gives as an example the failure of the book by Samantha Markle, sister of Meghan, recently released with the title, The Diary of Princess Pushy's Sister Part 1. Huntley: "Evidently he was thinking of writing a second volume, but his book sadly placed 81st on the American chart."
For sure, Harry and Meghan weren't expecting such a flop for Finding Freedom that on the first day of its publication it reached the top for pre-orders, but the excitement of the first moments has died down and is no longer news.
