Meghan and Prince Harry have stepped down from their role of senior royals and are living now in the US with their 14-month-old son Archie. Their move left many distraught as well as anxious about the growing tension in the royal family. The birthday messages from the royal family come shortly after the publication of Finding Freedom, a new biography about Meghan’s and Harry’s relationship that reveals the circumstances of them stepping down from their royal duties. The book talks about the rift between Prince Harry and Prince William. The book is written by journalists Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand. The couple has said that they did not provide material for the book but apparently friends of the couple did.
