While Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir is expected to cause mayhem within the entire Royal Family, a royal expert has predicted that Prince William will be the most impacted.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, has said that the Duke of Sussex’s book could damage the reputation of the monarchy by the time his older brother takes the throne.
“William is probably the one that will come out of this worst of all because there is a row between William and Harry and basically if Harry says things that are inappropriate about the monarchy, that is William’s future,” Ingrid claimed to the Express.
“It’s not Harry’s future, he is out of it now, but it is William’s future.”
Ingrid also added that the upcoming book will heavily affect Prince Charles, who has remained quiet since Harry and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah back in March.
“It is his son and how hurtful can it be for him to hear Harry say that his father hasn’t been a great father - which is more or less some of the things he has already said,” she remarked.
Prince Harry announced his “wholly truthful” memoir last week, 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.
Sources told the publication that the bidding war for Harry’s series of memoirs - which he has already started writing with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer - ended up at $54 million.
His publishers have said that the “proceeds” of the book will be donated to charity, but it's unknown if this includes the royalties and the advance.
