1.0 out of 5 stars Well, isn't this just a wonderful fluffy book about wonderful people...
Reviewed in the United States on August 11, 2020
Has anyone ever met one of those couples who utilize “ride or die together” concerning their relationship? Even though they are entirely too old for middle school like concepts concerning the world and its challenges, especially when they create their own problems, self-inflict their own misery, handle every situation impulsively, are dysfunctional, and what they have to “ride or die” through is a chaos of their own making? Let me introduce you to Harry and Meghan and their perception of what they have had to ride or die through to FIND FREEDOM.

This book, hilariously named, Finding Freedom, is filled with petty complaints and an idealistic, almost childlike presentation of two middle age individuals who act like they’re young, naïve newly wedded 18-year old’s. The complaints, it is clear they believe they are valid, have not presented any tangible evidence of true mistreatment and abuse by the alleged toxic family. The family Meghan and Harry claims she never had. Kate didn’t take me shopping, mind you Meghan is a grown woman complaining about shopping trips she is somewhat owed. Meghan didn’t get the tiara she wanted and the queens dresser stood in her way about it, as if that means she was mistreated. The audacity of this complaint, people, whining about a tiara as if she is entitled to what she demands. Too many friends and family asked H to slow it down and be reasonable instead of rushing marriage. Harry’s dear fried Tom Inskip is punished publicly for this, and they admit this in the book as if they are victims of his advice. Meghan wasn’t prepared for this job……. then claims the queen gave her a masterclass to prepare her as the grand Duchess she was supposed to be (make your mind up). Meghan is truly the most amazing person ever, we honestly won’t meet a more amazing, hard working dedicated person ever again and how could anyone just not like her? There is a nonstop narrative trying to convince us of just how aaaammmmazzing she is. No one could compare and the palace staff were just not equipped to handle her aaaammmmazzingness and tried to hold her down. William and Kate had better working roles than them, they felt pushed aside and should’ve received better positions in this family (there is a reoccurring theme where Meghan and Harry dismiss the line of succession as if it doesn’t apply to them and their delusions of grandeur.). The British press is just so mean, I mean we don’t have tabloids like that in America, still said with a straight face as if Americans aren’t going to say “whataminute?” Meghan and Harry cycle through staff at an alarming rate, but they’re still amazing people who do nothing wrong. Rules don’t apply to them. Meghan and Harry are here to save the day and modernize the monarchy and make it great again, despite no one asking them to and they should know why they cannot call the shots in a institution where a line of succession determines influence. The press is just so mean, the same press amazing Meghan courts for coverage. Kate and William didn't say hi to us at the Commonwealth ceremony, despite us throwing a fit about 2,000 fliers already being printed and we were not included in the process as WE SEE FIT. The common theme is that Meghan and Harry throw fits when they don't get their way, then play victims when other adults refuse to coddle them with fake smiles and as the book said, hugs. The royal family wouldn’t give into their demands at their exit, as if they have any right to make demands. The royal family is mean and toxic, because they said so, don’t ask for evidence, just listen to amazing Meghan and kind Harry.

This book isn’t about Finding Freedom, because they never lost freedom. Their concept of not having freedom is delusional. This book is nothing but a long bore fest of how amazing Meghan is, how wonderful Harry is, how perfect they are, how difficult and toxic the family is in their mind, how things are just sooooo unfair and more. This is a book solely about Meghan and Harrys perception of the world and their own behavior, which is why it is idealistic and beyond fluffy. They needed to try and sway the narrative and left out any responsibility of what they did that possibly angered nearly everyone around them from friends to family on both sides of the pond. The common denominator, look for it in complicated problems. This book is almost comical while reading, so if you enjoy a good laugh, read it. There is something endearing about two middle aged people writing such fluffy fantasy of how cruel the world is against them in a gilded palace with a million dollar wardrobe.

And before anyone says they didn’t have any hand in this book, the first week of August 2020, the Justice in her lawsuit, Justice Warby, said reporter Mr. Scobie (the author of this book) tweeted about the applications in court just 58 minutes after they were filed. I quote, “The record shows that the application notice and supporting witness statements were all submitted for filing at 8:06am and finding at 8:32am. The evidence of Mr. Mathieson is that they were served on the defendant at 8:30am and that by 8:45am, within 15 minutes of receiving the application, he received a call from a representative of Sky News asking if he had a comment to make about it. The defendant’s side had not made the application public. At 9:30am, a copy of the title page of the claimants witness statement was posted on the Twitter feed of someone called Omid Scobie.” There is more “the inference invited is that he had been provided with a copy by representatives of the claimant. This seems very likely.” The paper involved in this lawsuit created by Meghan did not leak this to Omid, Meghan and her team did. Within an hour of court. Justice Warby is linking the author of this book, Omid, directly to Meghan and her team as the sources of his “leaks” that he tweets about and obviously writes about in this book. If you think Meghan didn’t have a hand in writing this very idealistic, fantasy of her greatness and how she is such a victim of the world, boohoo I didn’t get the tiara I wanted, then it is time to find freedom yourself from naiveite. It is hard for her and H to claim they were not involved in this book filled with intimate details when she has no problem making sure the author has a copy of her court applications within minutes of court.

The authors note from the kindle version I attached above even admits they spoke to the couple.
