Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Royal Family exit was driven by him, new book claims

Prince Harry chose to step back from the royal family rather than Meghan Markle, a new book reportedly claims.

The biography, Finding Freedom, is said to shed new light on the couple's bombshell decision to quit as senior royals at the beginning of the year.

The 368-page account will reveal how Harry, 35, was the driving force behind the split, the Sun on Sunday reports.

He is even said to dislike the term "Megxit" because it suggests his wife made the decision, sources say.

"The truth is Harry had been unhappy for a long, long time," a publishing insider told the paper.

They have no royal subsidies and are said to be paying back £2.4million at £18,000 a month over 10 years for renovations to Frogmore Cottage.

Actress Meghan has also returned to showbiz, voicing a Disney nature documentary released in March.

Publishers say the book, titled Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, will "dispel the many rumours and misconceptions" which have surrounded the pair.

Earlier this week, the couple celebrated their second wedding anniversary, exchanging "very creative and romantic" cotton-themed presents.

They are said to have spent the day at home with Archie, adhering to social distancing and lockdown rules by not celebrating with family and friends.

A source close to the couple told Harper's Bazaar they spent "quality time with one another and as a family".

Mirror Online has contacted representatives of the Sussexes for comment about the claims reportedly in the biography.
