Experts compare Meghan and Harry’s attempts to “frame narrative” to King Edward VIII’s.
In an interview with This website, a royal biographer compared MEGHAN MARKLE and Prince Harry’s efforts to “create the narrative” to those of King Edward VIII.
Last year, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex departed the Royal Family and have since embarked on a series of media projects in the United States. Harry, 36, launched a “intimate and heartfelt” memoir in July, which is the couple’s most recent work. The Duke’s autobiography will be published by Penguin Random House UK and all earnings will be donated to charity. It is expected to be released in late 2022.
It is planned to chronicle “his entire life in the public glare, from childhood to the present.”
Harry stated in a statement that the book will detail his military career in Afghanistan as well as his roles as a spouse and father.
This is the latest attempt by the Sussexes to shift the narrative surrounding them, which includes a shocking interview with Oprah Winfrey in which they revealed “their truth” about what transpired during and after their time as royals.
Harry’s memoir, according to author and publisher Andrew Lownie, is the latest example of the Sussexes striving to establish their public image.
Mr Lownie spoke to This website about his new book, “Traitor King: The Scandalous Exile of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor,” as well as his thoughts on modern royals.
‘Traitor King’ analyzes the biography of former King Edward VIII, subsequently known as the Duke of Windsor — Harry’s great-great-uncle – via extensive interviews and research.
In 1936, the Duke of Windsor abdicated the kingdom due to opposition to his marriage to divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson, and the couple relocated to the United States.
In 1951, he wrote a memoir in which he discussed his abdication and his “lonely” 326-day reign as monarch.
Just six months before his brother King George VI died, his brother’s memoirs, ‘A King’s Story: The Memoirs of H.R.H. the Duke of Windsor, K.G.,’ were published.
Harry, too, married an American divorcee and left his royal duties to live with her in the United States.
He has now decided to pen a memoir in which he will tell what it was like to grow up behind the Palace gates.
Mr Lownie stated that both men attempted to “shape the narrative” in their favor. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
