The royal family has always been something to behold. A secret that was undeniably wonderful, but ultimately frustrating. In this era of information at our fingertips, nothing is secret now.

My curiosity got the better of me when this book scrolled across my screen. I wanted to know the dirty details of Harry and Meghan leaving the royal family and what their life is like now. Their story seemed like a fairy tail, but the more I read, the more I realized, this book is very one sided. The way Harry and Meghan are portrayed between the covers of this book, makes them look perfect and blameless in all things. I know their lives have been extreme and under the scrutiny of the world, but is there nothing that makes them real? A mean thought, a bad word? This was my one complaint. The royals are not real people.

The rest of the story was a quick read. Back story about how they met up to when they left the royal family. If only there was something more relatable.
