Insider Reveals The Details In Prince Harry's Memoir That Royals Should Be Nervous About

If you thought the Oprah Winfrey interview that saw Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sharing their innermost thoughts about family dynamics with the world was awkward for the royals, just wait. Because according to insiders, the Duke of Sussex's upcoming memoir, which reportedly will still be available for fans to pore over in the fall of 2022, despite rumors of a delay, features some "juicy" tidbits that the royals will be even less excited to have made public.


While we don't have any excerpts to tide us over until the day the tome is released just yet, a few details have already been released. Publisher Penguin Random House, which reportedly paid Harry somewhere in the neighborhood of $20 million for his account, has said the memoir offers readers "the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him" (via Page Six and Newsweek).

As for the Duke of Sussex, he has pledged that the book will deliver "a firsthand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful."

Just what truths he plans to tell may have the royal family feeling rather unsettled.

At least one member of the royal family is safe

There's good news and bad news if you are a member of the royal family, with Prince Harry's highly-anticipated memoir set to hit bookshelves and Kindles come fall. First, the good news: According to multiple sources, the Duke of Sussex does not share anything that would reflect poorly on his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth (via Page Six).


This report aligns with People's recent story insisting that the monarch still "adores" her grandson — yes, even after Megxit, his Oprah Winfrey tell-all and despite the drama-filled events surrounding Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's recent trip to the UK for her Platinum Jubilee.

Now for the bad news: If you are another member of the royal family, say Harry's dad, Prince Charles, there could be cause for concern, with a publishing insider telling Page Six, "There's a lot of new stories in there about the past that Harry has not spoken about before, about his childhood ... there is some content in there that should make his family nervous."

And that's not all.

Other royal family members might be exposed by Prince Harry's memoir

Another publishing insider who spoke with Page Six was clearly trying to drive intrigue as the release date for Prince Harry's books gets closer. "It's juicy, that's for sure," the source said.

Meanwhile, while no one knows exactly what tidbits the Duke of Sussex may be planning to spill in the tome, which is being authored with the help of a ghostwriter, the content must be controversial enough that at least one royal expert says Harry has a strategy to deal with his family leading up to the publish date.


Richard Eden spoke with Palace Confidential recently and opined, "There's a lot Harry could do but I really do think he is keeping his family at a distance until his book is published. I really, really do" (via The News).

Eden specifically noted that the dad of two may include stories that will be "unpleasant" for the Prince of Wales to have out in the public domain. The royal expert further speculated that Prince William may also not appreciate some of the content in the book, which may help explain what Eden called an "awkward situation" between the brothers at the Jubilee.
