The bombshell autobiography is set to be released later this year but some experts have warned it could further damage his relationship with the Royal Family. The manuscript, reportedly written, is set to be published around Christmas to capitalise on the lucrative Christmas market. But some have warned that this could hinder the Duke’s chances of a reconciliation with his family.

Journalist Dan Wooton warned there is “zero chance of reconciliation while his ‘intimate’ autobiography hangs over the Queen”.

Writing for the MailOnline, he added that this could be the “final straw in relations between Harry and his brother Prince William, who has still not forgiven the Sussexes for their bonanza of lies otherwise known as the Oprah Winfrey interview.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are returning to the UK next month but there are currently no known plans for them to meet with Prince William.

It is thought that the royal couple are hoping to meet with the Queen, but her busy schedule could mean they are unable to.

Speaking about the chances of a reconciliation, Richard Palmer, speaking on The Royal Round-Up, said: “The signs are that though the relationship is still very strained – as much as some people would like them to mend fences, build bridges, whatever cliché you want to use – it’s not really happening at the moment.

“And I think one of the reasons why it’s not happening is the prospect of Prince Harry’s memoir coming out about Christmas.

“There’s the fear inside the royal household that it is going to reopen all those old wounds again and very publicly.”

Royal expert Russel Myers claimed the book “is going to be explosive”, adding “wounds are still very raw” for the Prince, who stepped down as working royal member in recent years.

“Whatever he says, people around will be pouring over the detail,” Russel added.

Prince Harry kept the secrecy around the content of the book in a statement published when news of the memoir was released.

“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,” he said.

Prince Harry has reportedly been working on the book with the help of ghost-writer JR Moehringer, a Pulitzer Prize-winning author, since 2020. Penguin Random House will publish the book on Christmas.

“Prince Harry has harnessed his extraordinary life experience as a prince, a soldier, and a knowledgeable advocate for social issues, establishing himself as a global leader recognized for his courage and openness.

“It is for that reason we’re excited to publish his honest and moving story,” CEO of Penguin Random House Markus Dohle said in a statement.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced their return to the UK earlier this week.

The Sussexes’ spokesperson announced: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.”
