Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand on Eugenie and Harry
According to the authors of Finding Freedom, Eugenie and Harry were more than being cousins. They had a natural connection between them which made them the best bond. Scobie and Durand claimed that Princess Eugenie is loyal and honest to Harry. Alike Prince Harry, Eugenie had to struggle to build her own identity while growing up. Harry always came up to Eugenie as he completely trusted her more than anyone of his cousins as she would give the best of the bits of advice and had been beyond wise to Harry over the years.
To whom did Prince Harry first speak about Meghan?
Harry and Meghan spoke about their relationship only to their closest family and friends. Finding Freedom authors claimed that Prince Harry first opened up about Meghan to Princess Eugenie. This is the reason why Eugenie is more hurt about their relationship talk to get spilled.
