Andrew Morton – the author behind the controversial biography, Princess Diana: In Her Own Words – has now made Meghan Markle his newest subject. The writer is penning Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, an “in-depth biography” about Prince Harry’s fiancée, reported Harper’s Bazaar.
Announcing his new-fangled project on Twitter, Morton wrote, “Excited to be writing Meghan Markle’s story. She has bags of charisma. A royal star who will have tremendous impact on the royal family and wider world.” The book is scheduled to release on April 19, 2018 — a month before Markle and Prince Harry’s May nuptials.
Morton has promised to deliver “a comprehensive, unparalleled look at her life prior to the royal engagement,” which took place in November 2017.
Morton says he was a fan of the Suits actor before she made headlines as Prince Harry’s girlfriend. He describes her as “confident, groomed and camera ready. A dramatic contrast to the blushing, coy royal brides of recent history,” he told The Bookseller.
In the book, he compares Meghan and Harry’s dynamic to those of previous royal couples. “The warmth and affection Meghan and Harry displayed during their engagement interview is light years away from the stilted ‘whatever love means’ conversation with Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981,” Morton continued.
He also touches on how Meghan breaks royal stereotypes as a divorcée, American, biracial woman, and actor. “Meghan is an exciting and genuinely charismatic addition to the royal family. She makes the House of Windsor seem relevant again.”
