Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s bombshell biography is now being sold for 99p – just five months after it was first published.
Finding Freedom, which was written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, raised eyebrows for its gushing praise and intimate knowledge of the Duke, 35, and Duchess of Sussex, 39 – but the couple claimed they were not interviewed and did not contribute to the book.
It was initially priced at £20 after its release in August, but the biography can now be purchased for as little as 99p on online book shop Hive.
It also seems to be having trouble attracting offers on eBay, with one seller offering a £1.98 ‘buy it now price’ – with free postage.

It comes just months after Finding Freedom was declared a bestseller with 31,000 copies sold in the UK in the first five days of its release, according to figures from data provider Nielsen Book.
In September, Omid Scobie told how he was ‘grateful’ that the biography was still ‘riding high.’
Taking to Instagram, the royal correspondent-turned-author addressed his 22, 000 followers and penned: ‘So grateful to see Finding Freedom still riding high on The Sunday Times bestseller list almost a month since release. Thank you again for the continued support.’
To those asking for more language options, the list is growing (15 and counting!) and we’ll have more details soon…’

The biography offers a window into Meghan and Harry’s lives during their time as senior royals, and is full of details on their shock exit from the royal family.
It addresses the alleged rift between brothers Harry and William, as well as the relationship between their wives.
Scobie said that while they did not interview the couple, ‘many’ friends gave them insights – providing ‘a lens to the couple through their friends and their circle of aides’.
Royal expert Katie Nicholl said the authors may be the ‘only winners’ from the publication of Finding Freedom.
Writing in Vanity Fair, she asked if the book was ‘worth it for Harry and Meghan’ before adding: ‘The irony of Finding Freedom is that, locked down in their rented mansion in LA, the Sussexes have less freedom than they did when they lived in Windsor.’
Meanwhile she added that the book’s authors write that the monarchy had lost two of its greatest assets.
She concluded: ‘They, perhaps, might be the only winners in this rather sad story.’
