Top critical review
Reviewed in Australia on 26 June 2020
Pros: Lady Colin indeed took a fair and balanced approach about Harry & Meghan.
Cons: if you have read any newspaper or magazine article about the couple you already know the key events over the last 2 to 3 years, and if you listen to social commentators you already understand the polarisation and divisions.
Lady C presents a topic ... this is what the supporters belief, this is what the critics belief, and then moves on.
Like many readers, I have read the theories Meghan wasn’t pregnant; Meghan used a surrogate. Lady C covers this ... but does not provide any clear resolution to whether it is true or not ... at best provides a vague hint if you read between the lines that Archie may or may not be adopted.
Lady C criticises that Harry is the royal and therefore the more important of the two despite Meghan’s higher opinion of herself, but throughout, Lady C writes Meghan & Harry. This book criticises both, but most of us only learned who Meghan was because of her relationship with Prince Harry, it would have shown more respect to say Harry & Meghan.
I found Lady C introduced a topic, and waffled a lot about people and their backgrounds so it took the entire chapter to get to the point, or rather the timeline event. It is clear she held no affection for Diana, Princess of Wales.
All in all there was a lot I ended up just skipping over because it was hard work to read, and it became apparent that Lady C only gave her opinion on trivial aspects and provided no opinion or conclusion on anything that the public want answered.
