According to Tina Brown, former editor-in-chief of Vanity Fair and Tatler, Princes Harry’s memoir should never come out of the box. According to her, their publication would cause irreparable damage to relations with the royal family.
It is with pride that a few months ago, Prince Harry had celebrated the contract signed with the British publishing house Penguin Random House. And there was enough to pop the champagne. To tell his life within the royal family Archie and Lilibet’s father had been well paid. Helped by an established American writer and Pulitzer Prize winnerDiana’s youngest son was to receive a total of £40million for an autobiography which he already claimed would be “authentic and sincere”.
A profession of faith that seems to be undermined by the death of his grandmother Elizabeth II. So the publishing house has already asked him to revise his copy – too focused on mental health for his taste – it seems that the prince is no longer very sure of want to deliver his confidences on the royal family in his book…
No turning back possible
In the Daily Telegraphroyal biographer Tina Brown, author of The Diana Chronicles and The Palace Papers, don’t think the controversial biography will come out. “They are now in a delicate situation: they took all that money and Harry made a deal for a book he’s supposed to be in tell all about his horrible life as a member of the royal family, but he is now tortured about it. Because‘he understands that there is no turning back if he does “, she said adding”If the book continues, I don’t think there’s a way for Harry to come back. So I always thought the book wouldn’t see the light of day.“. The journalist, former editor-in-chief of Tatler and of Vanity Fair and who was one of the last people to see the Living Princess of Wales in the summer of 1997thinks that Diana herself would have advised her son to find a way to return to the family.
The memoir was due for release in the autumn, but the Duke of Sussex – who is writing the book under a nearly £40million deal for three titles – is said to have asked for significant changes to be made. He would like to refine his work in the light of the death of the queen, her funeral and the accession to the throne of her father Charles. “There might be things in the book that wouldn’t be very pretty if it came out so soon after these events. He wants some parts changed now. It’s not a total rewrite, far from it. However he desperately wants to make changes. But it may be too late.”
The lawyers of the royal family in the starting blocks
Jeffrey Archer author of the successful trilogy of Clifton assures him that the prince is currently writing a new chapter which will be devoted to the death of his grandmother and to the events leading up to his funeral. No date has been officially announced for its release, but US sources have hinted that publishers wanted it to be available in stores in time for ThanksgivingNovember 24, an ideal position before the Christmas holidays.
Meanwhile Buckingham Palace is preparing, fearing damaging revelations. A friend of Charles III said that at the Palace the conversations about the book were going well. “The question facing the palace is: ‘Can it be prevented from being published? Even Harry may not be able to stop it at this point.but the feeling at the highest level is that there is no good in airing your grievances in public.” The royal family lawyers at Harbottle & Lewis should be ready to read the book when it comes out, no doubt they will do so carefully…
