After Meghan Markle and Prince Harry announced that they would be taking a step back as senior royals of the British Royal Family, many blamed the former actress for their decision, and wrongfully so.

A new book Finding Freedom co-authored by royal reports Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand revealed that contrary to popular belief, Harry, not Meghan, was the one who pushed for the move across the pond, and ‘few knew how much she sacrificed to try to make it work’.

In one excerpt published by The Times, the biographers say courtiers and some members of the family held Meghan responsible for the royal exit, but that is was Harry who wanted to part ways. ‘Meghan simply emboldened him to make the change’, the authors claim. ‘She supported him no matter what’.

A source added, ‘Fundamentally, Harry wanted out…Deep down, he was always struggling within that world. She’s opened the door for him on that’.

In fact, the duchess allegedly went to great length to fit in with her in-laws, and confided in a friend about her frustrations of her inability to do so. According to  Scobie and Durand, ‘Meghan tearfully told a friend in March: ‘I gave up my entire life for this family. I was willing to do whatever it takes. But here we are. It’s very sad””.

Meghan was also devastated by the fact that Harry was stripped of his honorary military appointments upon the couple’s official departure. She reportedly told a friend, ‘It was so unnecessary… And it’s not just taking something away from him; it’s also that entire military veteran community. You can see how much he means to them. So why? A source called the move ‘the demoralizing aspect’ of the deal, and it’s been ‘a tough pill’ for Harry to swallow.

While it hasn’t been easy for Harry to leave as a royal, he felt he had no other choice ‘in making things right for his own little family’. ‘This is tearing him apart. He loves the Queen, but his wife feels aggrieved, and he adores his son’, a source explained in the book. ‘Harry’s whole world is Archie’.

‘Finding Freedom’ will be released on Aug.11.
