The contents of Prince Harry’s “intimate and heartfelt” memoir remain unknown but speculations have arisen since its announcement that it will be controversial. Speaking on TalkTV, Ms Osbourne, 69, claimed that the British public will hold a strong negative reaction to the release of Harry’s memoir, especially if it contains “personal things” that shouldn’t be made public.

Speaking on if Harry should “bin the book”, Ms Osbourne said: “I think he should do that”.

She added: “I think if they do that [go ahead with the release] and there is a lot of personal things that he shouldn’t be talking about, the British public will totally turn their backs on them both.”

Speaking of the release date being “pushed further and further away”, Ms Osbourne added: “What is he afraid of?

“If it’s just a book on his life and whatever, what are you pushing it [back for]”

Writing for the New York Post, broadcaster, and TalkTV presenter, Piers Morgan has also insisted that the Duke pull the plug on his forthcoming book following his a promise to honour his father, King Charles III, in a recent statement.

“If this book is as bad as the palace fears, all hell will break loose when it’s published.”, Mr Morgan said.

He also added that the “ensuing furor could depth-charge King Charles III’s reign before it’s even gotten going”.

Mr Morgan continued: “So if Harry genuinely wants us to believe he has a desire to ‘honour’ his father, as he said today, he should tear up his lucrative contract with Penguin Random House and cancel the book.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their decision to step down as senior royals in January 2020.

They carried out their final duties as senior royals in March 2020, just before the beginning of the pandemic.

The couple, along with son Archie, swiftly moved to the US and have since settled there, with Harry previously telling Hoda Kotb on TODAY show that his home “for the time being” is in the US.

He will also, according to the website, write about “the joy” that he has found in being a husband and father. 

The release date stated on the website was simply, “late 2022”. No official date has been revealed.
