Former royal employees are believed to be anxious about the contents of Prince Harry’s impending memoir, which he has promised will be a “wholly authentic” chronicle of his life, including “the highs and lows, the mistakes, and the lessons gained.”
Former palace aides are reportedly preparing to take legal action against the Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle if the Duke of Sussex’s book contains false information, according to a royal insider.
A small group of former Harry and Meghan staff members are reportedly concerned that the 36-year-old prince’s biography will feature “a misleading narrative” about how the Sussexes were treated while living in the United Kingdom.
According to a royal insider, “Harry and Meghan’s former staff members are sure that this book is being produced to settle scores and will likely include a lot of detail about their time within the Royal Family.”
According to the Oprah Winfrey interview, some of these former coworkers just do not believe they will be given a complete and truthful image.
“Discussions have already begun about what steps they might be able to take post-publication to protect their own and the monarchy’s reputations.”
When Harry announced his memoir on the Archewell website last week, he stressed that he was writing it “not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become.”
“I’ve worn a lot of hats in my life, both physically and metaphorically, and my hope is that by sharing my experience — the highs and lows, the mistakes and lessons learned — I can show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we believe.
“I’m happy for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned so far in my life, and I’m looking forwards to people reading a firsthand account of my life that is accurate and completely truthful.”
The Duke will donate revenues from his journey into authorship to charity, according to Penguin Random House, the publisher of Harry’s book.
