Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been warned they could lose their royal titles if the Duke of Sussex’s upcoming book is an “all-out onslaught against the Royal Family”. The Duke of Sussex’s much-anticipated memoir will finally go on sale on January 10. Publisher Penguin Random House said the book will detail with “raw unflinching honesty” his journey from “trauma to healing”, adding: “For Harry, this is his story at last”.

The cover shows Harry looking directly into the camera, along with the words “Prince Harry” and the title of the book, “Spare”. This is a reference to the phrase “the heir and the spare”.

However, many fear the upcoming memoir could contain attacks against the Royal Family – triggered by the bombshell interview from Harry and his wife Meghan with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

At the start of 2020, the couple relinquished their roles as working members of the Royal Family when they moved from the UK to live in the US.

They have been able to keep their respective Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles, although Royal Family enthusiast Nile Gardiner has warned they could be lost if Harry’s book contains attacks against the Firm.

The foreign policy expert told Express.co.uk: “Buckingham Palace will be very concerned by the release of Harry’s book. There is a lot of nervousness about it.

“Harry and Meghan will be cast into wilderness and lose their royal titles if this is an all-out onslaught against the Royal Family.”

Mr Gardiner believes Harry’s book could be “angry and bitter” and could do a “great deal of damage to the Royal Family”.

He warned the release of the memoir from the Duke of Sussex is the “publishing equivalent of a grenade being thrown into Buckingham Palace”, with the impact of Harry and Meghan’s standing in the Royal Family being “catastrophic”.

The Royal Family enthusiast continued: “This is going to be an angry and bitter book. It could do a great deal of damage to the Royal Family.

“The tone of book based on the title, looks to be very dark. It could be the publishing equivalent of a grenade being thrown into Buckingham Palace.

“This book serves no constructive purpose. The long-term consequences for the monarchy are very damaging.

“The impact on Harry and Meghan’s standing in the Royal Family will be catastrophic. They will lose their royal titles if there are attacks in this book.”

In March 2021, Harry and Meghan sat down for a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey – around a year after they relinquished their roles as working members of the Royal Family.

During the interview, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex alleged there had been “several conversations” within the Royal Family about the skin tone of their soon-to-be-born baby, Archie.

Prince William quickly leapt to the defence of the monarchy, and later stressed: “We are very much not a racist family.”

During the interview with Oprah, the couple also accused the Royal Family of ignoring Meghan’s cries for mental health support.

Buckingham Palace issued a rare public statement, which said the claims were “concerning” and would be “addressed by the family privately”.

In a press release for Harry’s book, publisher Penguin Random House said: “Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the 20th century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow – and horror.

“As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would play out from that point on. For Harry, this is his story at last.

“With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”
