Meghan and Harry

As Prince Harry and Meghan Markle leave the British Royal Family and move to Canada I feel it's worth mentioning my book,'The Muslim Prince.' The main character is a Prince of the House of Windsor who marries a Princess of the House of Saud, converts to Islam and leaves the UK. It was published last July but most of it was written two years ago.
