Meghan Markle and Prince Harry credit baby Archie for their lives changing for the better.
When Archie was born in May 2019, it was revealed that he gave “that energy to stand up for what was right for them, regardless of what the consequences were,” according to Omid Scobie.
Those consequences have been chronicled in the book Scobie co-wrote with fellow longtime royal reporter Carolyn Durand. The paperback edition comes out on August 31.
After talks with the couple’s friends and close associates, Scobie and Durand wrote on the couple’s courtship and the snowball effect that led Harry, 36, and Meghan, 40, to leave the U.K. for good.
Says Scobie, “They were quite afraid of the consequences of stepping away and challenging the system.”

Since moving to California, the Sussexes have welcomed daughter Lilibet Diana in June and are “really excited” to boost their public appearances on behalf of their Archewell Foundation, but also to deliver quite a few projects planned with the multi-million dollar streaming and book deals.
“They say that the proof is in the pudding,” Scobie tells PEOPLE, “and what we are about to see is that pudding.”
