Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, have distanced themselves from an upcoming book on their time in the royal family, saying they were not interviewed for the biography.

"The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not interviewed and did not contribute to Finding Freedom," a spokesperson for the couple said in a statement.

"This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting."

Finding Freedom, authored by royal reporters Carolyn Durand and Omid Scobie, is expected to detail how the couple felt the royal institution had failed to support them, according to The Telegraph newspaper.

It added that the book presents Harry and Meghan as disruptive forces with the ability to modernise the monarchy, only for them to be discouraged by the "grey suits" and hostile media coverage of their private life.

Meanwhile, The Times newspaper cited extracts from the book suggesting infighting among family members, with Harry believing Meghan was not liked by some of his relatives and others feeling that the popularity of the couple had to be "reined in".

The newspaper said Meghan described tabloid criticism as "death by a thousand cuts".
