According to The Independent, Finding Freedom authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand write that the 39-year-old "was understood to be 'furious' that private family matters were being discussed in the public domain."

During the chat, Meghan claimed that someone in the royal family was "concerned" over Archie's skin color and when she tried to talk to someone about her mental health problems, she was turned away.

Following the tell-all, William slammed the accusations, saying, "We're very much not a racist family."

There are several other bombshells in the new book, including how the royal family was happy that Meghan didn't attend Prince Philip's funeral in April.

The brood was "understood to have been 'quietly pleased'" that Meghan didn't fly to the U.K. because they "didn't want a circus," while a senior royal source said the brood didn't want "the Duchess creating a spectacle."

Harry even supposedly bought a one-way ticket because he thought he'd be able to mend fences with his sibling and father.

"There was a feeling that this trip might also present an opportunity to come together and talk without the filter of staff as go-betweens, a number of whom the Sussexes had come to discover were behind many of the media leaks they dealt with as working royals," the book claimed.

Even though the book claims things are still "unresolved" between Harry and his fam, it looks like he's slowly but surely starting to be friendly with William again.

“I know that the four are talking with one another and they’re talking by Zoom [and by] FaceTime,” royal expert Stewart Pearce told Us Weekly about Harry, William, Kate Middleton and Meghan's chats.
