Is Tom Bower’s latest tome ‘Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors’ actually going to be that revealing? Will it actually pull any punches or is it just a rehash of old news?
Dubbed on the cover of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors as “Britain’s top investigative journalist,” Tom Bower is known for his punchy unauthorised autobiographies of the likes of rambunctious rotters including Mohamed Al-Fayed, Sir Richard Branson, Boris Johnson and Robert Maxwell.
Sued for libel unsuccessfully for Lord (Conrad) Black prior to his being sent down for fraud yet cooperative and seemingly very friendly with Bernie Ecclestone, “Witchfinder General of contemporary biographers” Bower’s book has – in extracts shared thus far by The Times – focused on information such as that the Queen supposedly did not want the Duchess of Sussex at her husband’s Prince Philip’s funeral and that both Prince Harry and his wife have been repeatedly “hysterical.”
Hardly new ‘news’ in the sense that these “bombshell stories” have previously been repeatedly discussed online previously, such information as that “Meghan Markle ‘threw a cup of tea in the air’ and was ‘abrasive’ during [a] royal tour” is now doing the round. Of this, without naming the victim of the char chucking, Bower opines:
“Meghan was allegedly abrasive towards her four female staff and even towards the local British diplomats.”
“According to one report, Meghan allegedly threw a cup of tea into the air. Her anger may have been partly fuelled by Harry.”
“Every night he trawled social media, searching for snide comments on the internet. Every morning he and Meghan turned on their phones to surf the Internet.”
Speaking of his book to Times Radio two days ago, Bower added:
“H&M have set themselves up as judge and jury of the RF. Everything they do is to provoke and undermine and to challenge. My book is not gossip and speculation because it is sourced. You can’t imagine how much I didn’t print. The sources are identified, nearly 1000 sources are listed.”
“I have worked really hard to make sure it everything is accurate. There is very little in this book which is gossip and where there is, it is headlined as gossip.”
“I think the reader will come away with a vision of Harry and Meghan which is very different to the one they are accustomed to so far.”
Today, as self-proclaimed “global humanitarian” Prince Harry is set to give another no doubt self-serving speech at the United Nations in New York to mark Nelson Mandela Day, his wife is said to be “dreading” publication of the book in three days. Coming after her attempt to stop her half-sister suing her for defamation was unsuccessful, one, however, is left wondering whether Bower’s really will turn the screw or whether it’ll be left to another biographer to finally expose the truth about ‘Meddling MeGain’ and her drip of a husband’s ridiculous antics.
Tom Bower’s Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors will be released on 21st July 2022 in hardback form.
