Prince Harry rejects claims made about Meghan in Omid Scobie’s book
Prince Harry has dismissed a claim about his wife Meghan Markle’s ‘Finding Freedom’, an unauthorized biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
The book written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand claimed that Meghan Markle underwent a security drill with the SAS before their wedding.
In the 2020 book, the authors wrote that the current Duchess underwent a ‘mock abduction’ to prepare her for ‘all high risk security scenarios’ including hostage takings and terrorist attacks. .
In his recently published memoir ‘Spare’, Harry wrote: ‘A bestselling book describes the day the special forces came to our house, grabbed Meg, subjected her to several days of intense exercise, pushing her onto the back seats and trunks of the car, heading for refuges.”
He clarified that Meghan “didn’t get a minute of training”. “On the contrary, the Palace floated the idea of not giving him any security at all because I was now sixth in line to the throne.”
Omid Scobie is known as a friend of Meghan Markle and is often targeted by a pro-monarchy royal pundit.
