Meghan Markle warned author will tell the truth about her in new book

A biographer has vowed to "tell the truth" about Meghan Markle in an upcoming book about the Duchess of Sussex.

Last year, investigative journalist Tom Bower, 74, reportedly signed a six-figure advance to pen an unauthorised account of Meghan's life.

It has been reported that Mr Bower has spent more than a year speaking to friends, and enemies of the Royal couple.

"I'm writing it now. It will tell the truth when it comes out next year," ExpressOnline quotes him as saying.

Meanwhile, last week it was reported Harry and his American-born wife plan to write four books as part of a lucrative £29million deal with US publishers Penguin Random House – a move Mr Bower described as certain to "damage" the Royal Family".

Harry has come under fire for collaborating with celebrity ghostwriter JR Moehringer on what his publishers have described as "the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons that have helped shape him".

Mr Bower claimed: "The only way that Harry can earn money and justify the advance, and the only thing that the American publishers will be happy with is if he is very critical of the Royal Family".

"It will be damaging for them and that is a tragedy."

The deal means that Harry's memoir will be released in late 2022 when it is the Queen's platinum jubilee year.

It is described by Harry as being a "wholly truthful first-hand account" of his life. But royal aides are worried that it will prove to be a highly biased account of the 36-year-old prince's experiences and only serve to further heighten tensions with his estranged relatives.

Meghan is also set to pen a "wellness" guide as part of the Random House contract.

In another development, it was revealed that an updated version of Finding Freedom, by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, will be released on the anniversary of Princess Diana's death, August 31.

The book, which gives a behind-the-scenes account of Meghan and Harry's life, will now feature a section detailing their heartbreak following the death of Prince Philip in April.

This new section will also recount "Meghan's emotional healing journey from losing a child to the birth of their daughter" and will detail the couple's relocation to California, according to publisher HarperCollins.
