Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, claims that the Duchess of Cambridge "insulted" Meghan Markle and points to racist attitudes among courtiers, while some say "may want to take a look at how they see the world".
- The author of an explosive book claimed that Meghan was racist in Britain

The Duchess of Cambridge insulted Meghan during the last royal engagement of Sussex on Commonwealth Day, the authors of an explosive new book.
Omid Scobie, who wrote the book Finding Freedom, claims that Meghan was subjected to racism by royal courtiers.
During the Commonwealth Day engagement, he told The Times: “Meghan tried to make eye contact with Kate, and the Duchess barely recognized her.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's last royal engagement was the Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey before Harry and Meghan left the royal life
Harry and Meghan, as pictured, were dissatisfied with royal life, according to an explosive new book
It is alleged that the Duchess of Cambridge pictured insulted Meghan during the engagement
The royal editor of Harper & # 39; s Bazaar, who accompanied Prince Harry  and Meghan Markle  on various royal tours, announced the release of Finding Freedom last month, which he wrote with Carolyn Durand
“To deliberately insult your sister-in-law. . . I don't think it left a good taste in the couple's mouth. "
He argued that Megan's mixed background would prove problematic for some in the royal household.
He added: "That would curl feathers. I would say that there are certainly people there who might want to see how they see the world. & # 39;
Scobie said those working for Royals could throw a nugget to stop the media's negative attention.
"They have Clarence House, Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace and the various offices in Buckingham Palace. They are very loyal to their clients, but that often means throwing others under the bus," he told The Times.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge smiled as they left the ceremony on March 9th
"For example, suppose a negative story about Prince Charles is imminent." Maybe someone working for Charles throws a nugget over the Cambridges or another member of the royal family to keep this story out of the press. "He added:" There is a lot of negotiation behind the scenes. Harry and Meghan were victims of it. "
Mr. Scobie, 33, emphasized that the book had "no interviews with Harry and Meghan," although he hopes it will "correct" the couple's record.
"It's not all from Harry and Meghan's perspective, but I think for the first time we can actually hear what's going on in their heads," he told The Times.
Mr. Scobie spent two years writing the book with American journalist Carolyn Durand, starting shortly after the Sussexes' wedding.
"The book does not claim to have interviews with Harry and Meghan, and neither do we," Scobie told The Times. He also said there were no confidential discussions and said, "My time with the couple is enough to cover my issues know."
The Sussex people made a last attempt to distance themselves from the book last night
The Sussex people made a last attempt to distance themselves from the book last night.
The authors boasted that it was written "with the involvement of those closest to the couple" and spoke to members of Harry and Meghan's "inner circle".
The couple are believed to have instructed staff to find out what the authors were up to and that a number of meetings and dinners were held.
But a spokesman for the couple said last night: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not been interviewed and have not contributed to the search for freedom. This book is based on the authors' own experience as members of the Royal Press Corps. "
Scobie, the royal editor of the US magazine Harper & # 39; s Bazaar, met Durand when she worked for the US news channel ABC. They hope that the book will focus again on the couple's charity and social activism, such as Harry's Invictus Games engagement.
