Harry to ‘rock palace to its foundations’ with ‘intimate’ memoir, expert claims

Prince Harry is set to “rock the palace to its foundations” with the release of his memoir, a royal expert has claimed.

Next year marks the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which will see her celebrate 70 years on the throne.

Her Majesty will be the first British monarch to celebrate the milestone and celebrations are expected to include a 5,000-participant strong pageant, the Daily Express reports.

The latter half of 2022 however will also see Prince Harry release his “intimate and heartfelt” memoir – due to be published by Penguin Random House – which will chart his life throughout his childhood, all the way to the present day.

The Duke of Sussex said the memoir would reflect on the “highs and lows” of his life and would be “accurate and wholly truthful”.

However, it is still unclear whether the book will also detail his and Meghan Markle’s departure from the Royal Family and their move to the US.

Royal expert, Daniela Elser, claims the contents of the book would send shockwaves throughout Buckingham Palace, after a spokesperson for the 37-year-old said he would not be expected to obtain permission from the Firm for the project.

Writing for the New Zealand Herald, Elser said: “Prince Harry will release his memoir which is all but guaranteed to rock the palace to its foundations and rattle the fillings of the remaining HRHs."

She added that this could also unintentionally combine with the timing of Prince Andrew's upcoming legal case in the US — for which he is due to attend court in May — and is likely to increase the chance that the Queen’s party could be spoiled.

Prince Harry said when announcing his memoir: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. 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.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved across the Atlantic in March last year after stepping down as senior members of the royal family.

Harry and Meghan relocated to California with son Archie, now two, and have since welcomed baby daughter Lilibet Diana.

The pair sat down with TV host Oprah Winfrey earlier this year in an explosive interview where they opened up about life within The Firm.

The Daily Star has approached the Duke of Sussex for comment.
