As anticipation for Prince Harry's "accurate and wholly truthful" tell-all memoir grows, royal insiders claim the Queen has reportedly "sought legal advice" before its release in 2022.
According to The Sun, both libel and privacy experts have been consulted by the royal legal team in preparation for more "hurtful attacks" against the monarchy.
"The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough," a source told the publication.
"There is a limit to how much will be accepted and the Queen and Royal Family can only be pushed so far."
Penguin Random House, the publishers of the upcoming memoir, are also expected to be contacted by the royal legal team to request an advance copy and to have a right to reply.
The source adds that Harry and Meghan will be also "made aware and know repeated attacks will not be tolerated".
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.”
Prince Harry announced his memoir in July, 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."
