The book written about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's life and why they really felt the need to exit the Royal family, Finding Freedom, is set to be released on August 11. The book, which is really a biography on the former Royal couple, was written by Royal experts, Omid Scobie and Caroline Durand.

The book also talks about the tension between Prince William and Prince Harry and the fact that Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle never bonded as they were expected to.

According to an excerpt from the book published in the Times, "Meghan would agree with the assessment that the duchesses were not the best of friends. Their relationship hadn’t progressed much since she was Harry’s girlfriend."

The book also claims that Meghan had hoped that Kate would have been more welcoming to her when she first met them in the beginning of her relationship with Prince Harry. She was hoping Kate would have offered "everything an outsider to the Firm [the working side of the royal family] needed to know."

Although the two Duchesses were not close and never bonded, the authors of the book wrote that Meghan said she wasn't losing any sleep over it. Also, according to a source close to Kate Middleton, Kate said she didn't think the two of them had anything in common except for the fact that they both lived at Kensington Palace.

Not only does the new book claim that the two Duchesses weren't friends, but it also makes claims about the tension between Prince William and Prince Harry.

Ever since Harry and Meghan started getting serious and after he brought Meghan to meet William and Kate, there has been tension between the brothers. The reason, according to the book, is that Prince William told Harry to watch "this girl." He actually said, "take as much time as you need with this girl." After William said those things to Harry, they haven't talked much. Harry thought these comments by his brother about his now wife were "snobby" When he said the words, "this girl" he took his brother's tone toward Meghan as "snobbishness" toward Meghan and he wasn't and still isn't happy with him.

In fact, a close source to Harry said, "Harry was pissed off. Pissed off that his brother would ask such a thing."

However, the source also said that some people thought he was overreacting. They said, "Some felt it was an overreaction. But then, this sums them up as people — William, the calm and rational one, and Harry, who can’t help but take things far too personally."

According to the authors of the book, the tone that William took about Meghan didn't sit well with Harry at all.

Although Kate Middleton has not made any comments about the claims made in the book, according to Royal author, Andrew Morton, she is really upset and "devastated" by these claims made about her and Meghan Markle's relationship and the tension between Prince William and Prince Harry.

Morton said, "There’s no doubt the rift between Harry and William has deeply affected Kate. It upsets her."

He also said that if she were to take sides, she would no doubt take her husband's side. She is a very loyal wife and will always be loyal to Prince William.

And, according to Royal commentator, Phil Dampier, the book will definitely not help heal things between the brothers. He said, "I’m told that the pair are speaking at the moment, but the conversations are stilted and difficult."
