Mr Scobie told the Times: "To purposefully snub your sister-in-law".
However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are not seeking a "totally private life", Instead, they would rather have a public life with more privacy than before.
"I think that's perhaps because she was older and she came with a history and".
Finding Freedom: Harry, Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family is officially out August 11.
Meghan and Harry, according to Scobie and Durand, struggled to understand "why so few inside the palace were looking out for their interests", since they were so popular.
A spokesperson with the Sussex Royal foundation said: "Grants made to the non-profit organisation Travalyst are for the ongoing development of projects that will support communities, wildlife, and the environment through sustainable travel and tourism".
"For the very first time, Finding Freedom goes beyond the headlines to reveal unknown details of Harry and Meghan's life together", said the Amazon blurb, "dispelling the many rumors and misconceptions that plague the couple on both sides of the pond".
Worse, there were just a handful of people working at the palace they could trust.
"He and Meghan didn't walk away from the monarchy; rather, they wanted to find a happy place within it", Scobie and Durand write in the book.
"Imagine if you were in their shoes facing that, how that would feel?" a friend of the couple told Express at the time.
That's according to an insider, who said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were living in fear for their son, Archie, after drones flew in the vicinity of their pad on several occasions. Meanwhile, an equally frustrated palace employee described the Sussex team as "the third screeching wheel" of the palace. "This book is based on the authors' own experiences as members of the royal press corps and their own independent reporting".
The couple chose to live at least part-time in North America "to escape the incessant United Kingdom tabloid fabrications", the lawsuit says. As a result, Meghan is said to have believed she was being mistreated - a key motive in the couple's move to exit "The Firm" and move to Los Angeles.
Now living in a gated community in Beverly Hills, the Sussexes insist in a statement from their lawyers that: "Every individual and family member in California is guaranteed by law the right to privacy in their home".
