Prince Harry’s Upcoming Memoir Is the Firm’s “Greatest Threat” at the Moment, Apparently

Good morning: there is, as ever, a lot of drama surrounding Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir. Like, to the point where there’s speculation that it might not even come out. And while Harry himself hasn’t indicated that his memoir will be dramatic, the royals have been in a state of 🌀.

Royal reporter and author Katie Nicholl tells ET, via The Express, that “I think the greatest threat, and the greatest concern certainly for the royals, is the forthcoming autobiography by Prince Harry, which has caused a lot of consternation in royal circles. A lot of concern among senior royal sources and palace aides because, quite simply, they don’t know what to expect.”

She adds that “There’s lots of rumors that Prince Harry is making possibly last-minute edits to the book. In light of the Queen’s death, the sensitivity perhaps of some of the passages he’s written about. The autobiography has been shrouded in secrecy and I think it’s a case of belts and braces, and the Palace really preparing themselves for what’s to come.”

And while there’s speculation that the book won’t see the light of day due to Harry having second thoughts, Nicholl added that “Harry has taken a $35 million advance, the chances of him handing that back and saying, ‘actually, I’m not going to do this book after all’ is highly unlikely. When you’re having that sort of an advance, that’s not going to be for Harry talking about his philanthropic work. That’s going to be the inside story of being born the spare, what it entails.”

Meanwhile, Prince Harry’s only comments on the book? Couldn’t be more chill:

“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story—the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned—I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
