As the royal family braces for the revelations in Prince Harry's upcoming tell-all memoir, one member of the family seems to have become a surprise ally for the Duke of Sussex.
A royal insider told The Sun that Harry's Pulitzer Prize-winning ghostwriter JR Moehringer will likely contact members of the prince's inner circle for the book, including Princess Eugenie.
"I could only imagine Eugenie talking or being approached as she is someone Harry is still in regular contact with," the source claimed.
Eugenie, who is currently living in the Sussexes old home Frogmore cottage with husband Jack Brooksbank, knew Meghan Markle after working in New York and introduced her to Harry.
She is believed to still be in regular contact with the couple since they relocated to the US, with husband Jack also considered a close friend to Harry.
It was initially believed both Eugenie and sister Princess Beatrice were reportedly 'stunned' over news of Harry's book deal.
A senior royal source recently told the Mail Online: "The emotional turmoil as they wait over a year for publication is going to be torturous. What's really telling is even the relatives he remains closest to, like Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, are stunned by what he's up to."
"Let’s be honest, Harry has never been close to the Duchess of Cornwall," they added. "If he documents their fraught relationship in the book it could be very damaging at a time when Charles is laying the groundwork for her to become Queen."
Prince Harry's memoir
Prince Harry announced his “wholly truthful” memoir last month, promising to be a “first-hand” account of his life so far.
In a statement, the 36-year-old said: “I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.
“I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope 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.
“I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I've learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful.”
The deal with Penguin Random House is also rumoured to include a “wellness” guide penned by Harry’s wife Meghan Markle.
