Prince Harry spokesperson said he didn’t feel he needed permission from Buckingham Palace to write his $20 million Megxit memoirs.
The decision to write the tell-all autobiography has been stamped a moneymaking exercise at the expense of his blood family by royal authorities and insiders who predicted it would be a book by Harry, as written by Meghan.
It was claimed that Harry, 36, didn’t warn his grandmother, father or brother about the tell-all book until moments before it became public in a sign that his relationship with the Royal Family didn’t improve during his visit to unveil Princess Diana’s statue in London earlier this month.
The Sussex’s spokesperson told the BBC that Harry wouldn’t be expected to get permission for the project from Buckingham Palace, but told his family, including the Queen very recently, and it’s not yet apparent if royal officials will get to see the finished book before its release in late 2022 by publisher Penguin Random House. A newspaper outlet has asked Harry’s LA team to comment.
Harry said that he wasn’t writing it as the prince he was born, but as the man that he’s become, and responding to his bombshell statement signed ‘Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex’, broadcaster Kirstie Allsopp responded: ‘In which case, stop using the title to sell books’ and one royal insider said angrily: ‘A book by Harry, as written by Meghan.’
In his latest column for MailOnline, Piers Morgan urged the Queen to strip Harry and Meghan of all their titles, calling the book a betrayal too far and accusing them of turning Her Majesty’s world-famous adage of ‘never complain, never explain’ into ‘always complain, always explain, never stop whining.’
The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William are said to have been blindsided by Harry’s shock announcement that he’s been secretly working on his as-yet-untitled memoirs with Pulitzer winning ghostwriter J R Moehringer for a year.
Another source revealed that the announcement had provoked much eye-rolling, adding that they thought everyone was just tired of being outraged when it comes to Harry and Meghan.
They have spent the last 18 months doing everything they assured Her Majesty they wouldn’t do, making a living off their former lives and standing as members of the Royal Family.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s truth bombing started in March with their extraordinary 90-minute interview with Oprah Winfrey where they accused the Royal Family of racism towards Archie and ignoring calls for help from a depressed Meghan when she was suicidal and pregnant.
The fact is many people have had enough of all this. We’re in a pandemic and millions have died, and most people don’t care about a rich chap in a mansion with a loving family, and let’s face it, it’s an odd way to go about protecting his family from the media, by always being in it.
Harry said they were leaving the United Kingdom because they wanted privacy, well that’s not going so well! And they invade their own privacy every day so that we don’t have to, that’s got to be priceless, or even prince-less.
The thing is, they can’t do it on their own terms if they’re still part of the Royal Family, and they chose to be out but are desperately trying to hang onto their titles, and of course, nothing screams privacy like an autobiography.
