Prince Harry, the youngest son of King Charles and the late iconic Diana, Princess of Wales, talks about the highlights and lowest moments of his life, from the time of his mother’s tragic death and his military service to his meeting and marrying Meghan Markle. He says he was attracted to her view that life is a grand adventure, and he wanted to go on that journey with her. He also talks about their two children and shares that he and Meghan feared for their safety and their own sanity. That’s one reason they left England and the working royal life, settling in Montecito, CA, at a home actor/writer/director Tyler Perry owned and offered. Another reason they fled is due to racist and misogynistic attacks against Meghan from the media and from his brother and sister-in-law, he says. The book details the rift, including alleged physical and emotional assaults, that led to the estranged relationships he now has with his father, his stepmother, his brother, and sister-in-law. The book also covers the Queen’s death and funeral service.
VERDICT Highly recommended for those who are curious about what happens behind the scenes of a royal family. This is a vivid and intriguing account.
