Prince William and Prince Charles are said to be worried about what Prince Harry might reveal in his upcoming tell-all.
On Tuesday, a spokesperson for the Duke of Sussex confirmed to Fox News that the 36-year-old is writing what his publisher is calling an “intimate and heartfelt memoir.”
Random House is expected to release the book, currently untitled, late in 2022. While financial terms were not disclosed, Harry will donate proceeds to charity, the publisher noted.
“The royal family is shaken up about the book,” a source told Us Weekly on Tuesday, adding that Charles, 72, and William, 39, are “particularly concerned about what Harry will reveal” after the prince’s recent sit-downs, which were “bad enough” already.
“They haven’t received a copy yet and don’t know what to expect,” the insider claimed to the outlet. “It’s making them nervous.”
In response to the book’s announcement, a spokesperson from Buckingham Palace told Fox News “this is not something we would comment on.”
In his announcement, Harry said his book aims to tell “my story.”
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” Harry said in a statement. “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,” Harry added.
According to Random House, Harry’s book will serve as “the definitive account.”
“Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons that have helped shape him,” Random House announced.
“Covering his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father,
Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story,” their statement shared.
