Prince Harry could come back to the United Kingdom before Christmas to promote his autobiography, which is due to be released on January 10. But the Duke of Sussex’s possible return to the UK will not be used as a chance to mend fences with the Royal Family, according to biographer Angela Levin. Ms Levin claimed Harry “turned down” an offer from the King to spend Christmas with his family at Sandringham.

Speaking to Sky News Australia, Ms Levin said: “He’s sort of announced that he’s going to come to the UK and promote [his memoir.]

“If the book is coming out January 10, he’s going to come before Christmas, isn’t he?

“And that would really spoil everybody’s Christmas in the family. He’s just turned down the invitation to go to Sandringham – King Charles very much wanted the family to go to Sandringham cause that’s where the Queen liked the family to go.

“And they will be thinking about her and telling funny stories about her and respecting her. He turned that down but he’ll go around promoting the book. Oh, honestly.”

The Royal Family has traditionally been spending part of the Christmas break at the Norfolk residence since the King was a child.

The custom had to be shelved during the pandemic but the late Queen visited the country estate shortly after the death of Prince Philip, as he spent the last years of his life before Covid hit at Wood Farm.

She also spent five days at Sandringham following the Platinum Jubilee in the summer of 2022.

Prince Harry has not been at the Royal Family’s country pile since his last Christmas with the Queen over four years ago.

Amid reports of Prince Harry returning to the UK ahead of Christmas, a source told the Mail on Sunday: “Put it this way, it’s not going to make for a relaxing family Christmas.”

The Queen’s death in September sparked speculation that the Duke of Sussex sought to make changes to the draft to tone down his criticism of the Royal Family.

A royal insider said: “The book has been back and forth between Harry and [ghost writer] JR Moehringer and the publishers a few times.

“They wanted more than was in the first draft, and then Harry wanted to refine things after the Queen passed away.

“But there has been extra toing and froing that people don’t know about. This is because the publishers wanted more areas covered and more detail on some things that were already included.”

They added: “There is a real concern that that means Harry has had to sex up the book and include revelations that even he might not even be that comfortable with.”

Prince Harry’s book is to be released simultaneously on January 10 in 16 countries.

The memoir, titled Spare in English-speaking nations, will detail the Duke of Sussex’s personal experience as a member of the Royal Family.
