The book meets with a tense situation
The book that Harry is said to have co-written with ghostwriter JR Moehringer now finds itself in this already tense situation. It was actually supposed to be released in the fall, but after the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, Harry apparently pushed for a revision, as they say in London. But as a result, publisher Penguin Random House missed out on lucrative business ahead of the American Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. After all, the Queen’s grandson is said to have received an advance of 20 million euros. Harry was asked several times to present individual parts in more detail or even add anecdotes, the “Sun” reported. That also feeds the fears in the palace of revelations.
With the announcement of the significant title, relations within the family are already close to the lowest point, the “Mirror” newspaper wrote. Harry also turned down an invitation to their joint Christmas party, the newspaper claims. The “Daily Mail” reported that he was instead considering flying to his home country earlier in the year and explaining his book. It is said that William has hardly said a word to his younger brother since the announcement. Royal expert Angela Levin told the newspaper that the palace was sitting on red-hot coals.
“This book is really ‘all or nothing,'” Royals biographer Tom Bower told The Sun. But how will the palace react? “I imagine King Charles has been warned that any form of retaliation will be ugly.” The expert suggests that the monarch could deny Harry’s children Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1, the titles of prince and princess. In fact, they have been entitled to that since their grandfather became king. “Ultimately it could also take the titles away from Harry and Meghan,” Bower said. “But that would be pretty drastic.” The family feud in the palace is far from over.
