An updated edition of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's biography will be released this summer, lifting the lid on the latest royal rifts.

Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand published their biography of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family in August 2020, but will reissue it a year after it's initial release.

A number of fresh dramas have hit the royal couple since the book was published last summer, with them permanently stepping down as working members of the Royal family in February.

The move came just days before the explosive interview they gave to Oprah Winfrey, in which Harry claimed his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William are "trapped" in their roles.

Meghan, who is currently pregnant with the couple's second child, also made the shocking claim than an unnamed member of the Royal family expressed "concern" over Archie's skin tone before he was born.

In the days leading up to the airing of the interview, which has since racked up over 6,000 Ofcom complaints, allegations hit the press about Meghan "bullying" members of Palace staff.

The allegations, which she vehemently denies, are also believed to be discussed in the new edition of the book.

The book is also set to recount the death of Harry's grandfather, Prince Philip, for who's funeral he jetted back to the UK for earlier this month.

A source told The Times: "The Oprah interview detonated a bomb under the royal family and most of them are still reeling in shock. The book will not help."

A second added: "After Oprah, what else is there to say?"

Oprah, 67, admitted she was "surprised" that Meghan "went all the way there" with her racism claims in the interview over the weekend.

Speaking on Nancy O'Dell's channel on talkshoplive, she called the chat "powerful" as they "wanted to be able to tell their story and tell it in such a way that allowed them to be as truthful as possible."

Oprah explained: "I had no idea that it would have the reverberating impact it has had and continues to have. I did a lot of preparation for that."

She went on to explain that she had texted Meghan and Harry before the interview to have a joint understanding of their focus of it as she said: "Whenever I'm doing interviews with anybody for anything that is significant, I have a conversation with them before.

"I didn't see Harry and Meghan before but I did text them and say intention is very important to me, tell me what your intention is, so that we can be aligned in our goal.

"And our shared intention was the truth. They wanted to be able to tell their story and tell it in such a way that allowed them to be as truthful as possible."
