Meghan Markle and Prince Harry 's friends contributed to their explosive biography Finding Freedom in order to set the record straight, the author has claimed.
The book's co-author Omid Scobie claimed insiders close to the couple spoke out about the couple's secret motivations behind leaving the Royal Family to get the truth out there.
Mr Scobie, shared the background to the book on the HeirPod podcast, telling how his confidential sources felt it was a “safe space” to share explosive details surrounding the couple's royal split.
He told ABC journalist Maggie Rulli he and his co-author Carolyn Durand collected a “dream list” of sources close to Harry and Meghan they were keen to talk to.
The author claimed his contacts said they were happy to speak out because they had been "frustrated" about the amount of disinformation circulating about their Meghan and Harry.
He said: “What I found was that very quickly people were saying ‘yes’ or they were at least showing early interest.
“They were frustrated about having very few other places to set that narrative straight, to correct a lot of the things that they had themselves been witness for, or in the room at the same time of.”
Mr Scobie, who spoke to around 100 sources for the book, claimed the reason it ended up being so candid was because of a sense of growing frustration about needing to “set the record straight”.
He continued: “I think we found this little corner where we had created almost a ‘safe space’ for some people to speak."

Mr Scobie added: “That’s really where the frustrations from so many of the friends and those close to the Sussexes was born.”
The Finding Freedom biography is said to expose the resentment and mistrust which led to Harry and Meghan quitting as working royals.
This includes Harry's anger at what he perceived to be Prince William's "snobbish" attitude towards Meghan and the couple's frustration at having to take a back seat to more senior members of the family.

Courtiers were reportedly stunned by the revelations in the book and have branded it "hurtful, unnecessary and destructive”, the Mirror reports.
According to a poll, many people think the book may do more harm than good and do lasting damage to the Royal Family as an institution.
The frayed relations apparently came to a head when the Sussexes walked away from the monarchy in March to carve out a new "independent" life, between the UK and North America.
Buckingham Palace declined to comment on the book, but Harry and Meghan have previously stated they were not involved in its writing.
