Will Prince Harry's Memoir Open The Door To Backlash From His Former Staff?

Prince Harry's upcoming memoir seems to have everyone talking. The Duke of Sussex announced last week that he was working on a book that would reveal his truth to the world and clear up any misconceptions about his life. "I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," Harry said in a statement, per Harper's Bazaar. Following the announcement, it was reported that many of Harry's former friends are worried that he may spill secrets from their past and impact their lives today.

"It feels very hypocritical given Harry chucked people out of his friendship group for talking to the press," one person told The Daily Mail. "There is a fear that he's going to reveal details of his hedonistic youth which some worry will play havoc with their careers and personal lives," the insider added. The source also went on to reveal that Harry's pals are ready to dish details on the prince if he betrays their trust. "If Harry slams any of his old school and military buddies in his new book they have pledged to break ranks to tell their story."

Now there is speculation that the memoir may also cause some royal staffers to speak out about what it was really like to work for Harry and Meghan before their exit from the royal family.

Are Harry's former staffers ready to spill details?

According to The Daily Mail's Dan Wootton, Prince Harry's memoir may give royal staffers the opportunity to speak out about what it was really like working with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex during their time in the royal family. Wootton claims that many former staffers have kept in touch to swap stories about Harry and Meghan, and some of those people could come forward with their own bombshell details about the couple. "Harry and Meghan's former staff members are convinced that this book is being written to settle scores and will likely include a lot of detail about their time within the Royal Family," one insider told the outlet.

The source also revealed that some staffers have already been talking about what they may do if they're painted in a negative light in Harry's book. "Conversations have already started about what steps they might be able to take to protect their own reputation and that of the monarchy post-publication," the informant dished. "There may be a provision given to staff members to respond to any claims that they consider to be inaccurate. Maybe a blind eye could be turned if staff members used friends or family members to correct the record on their behalf. These are the sorts of conversations going on at the moment and, of course, legal remedies are always available too if the book smears any individual staff members unfairly," the source added.

While Harry's book is a highly anticipated read among fans, it seems that it could cause issues for more than just his friends and family members.
