Prince Harry’s book deal sparks ‘tsunami of fear’ among royals, insider says
Prince Harry's new memoirs has sparked a "tsunami of fear" in Buckingham Palace, a source claims.
The Duke of Sussex, 36, has been secretly working with with American “power ghostwriter” J. R. Moehringer on the book that is set to be released in late 2020, he confirmed today.
He said "I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man, I have become", adding he was "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.”
But after a string of public criticisms of the Royal Family by Harry and Meghan Markle this year, a source told the Mirror that the thought of the book has sparked fresh worry in royal circles.
“Ever since leaving royal life, Harry and Meghan have made claim after claim of how they allege they have been treated," the insider claims.
“They say that it is their truth but there is only ever one truth.
“Since their interview with Oprah Winfrey tensions have been running very high as much of what they said has since been proven to be unreliable at best.
“There is a now tsunami of fear among the royals over what Harry will write.
"Many hope he may correct a few things but do not hold much hope."
