A new bomb in the royal family. In January 2020, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their intention to step away from the royal family. A few months later, the couple left the UK to settle in Los Angeles. The following year, both chained the more shocking revelations than the others in an interview with Oprah Winfrey. Discreet since, Prince Harry revealed a few days ago his intention to publish his memoirs. An initiative that was not well received by everyone. According to information published by The Mirror this Saturday, July 24, Eugenie and Beatrice of York did not hesitate to give a clear opinion. “They were stunned,” the tabloid revealed. In addition, both are among the only people to have kept in touch with Meghan Markle’s husband and this announcement was very surprising for them. This work is scheduled for the end of 2022 and Robert Jobson, specialist in crowned heads, estimated that the wait is an “emotional turmoil. Waiting more than a year for pulication is going to be torture,” he concluded.
He wants to tell his story. If Prince Harry wants to publish his memoir, it is because he wants to have the opportunity to tell his side of the story. In his press release, he explains wanting to “highlight the many caps that I have been able to wear over the years”, he confides first. An important initiative for him who hopes that by “telling my story – the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we all have much more in common than we don’t think so, ”he then said. However, the British expect many revelations, such as those concerning the death of his mother, Lady Diana. Indeed, he mentioned his intention to tell his story not as “the prince that I have been since my birth but as the man that I have become”, he concluded. For the publication of his book, he turned to Penguin Random House and the sales revenues will be donated to associations. There is no doubt that this book will do a lot of talking.
Memoirs of Prince Harry: which other royals were shocked?
With the publication of his memoirs, Prince Harry made a lot of reaction to the British but also his relatives. If Eugenie and Beatrice of York did not hesitate to affirm their surprise concerning this initiative, they are not the only ones. Indeed, Queen Elizabeth II claimed to have found “Prince Harry’s decision deeply disrespectful”, his entourage told the Daily Mail. Likewise for Prince Charles. “He thinks Prince Harry is oddly determined to cause harm to his family,” a source close to The Mirror told The Mirror. “Prince Charles is concerned about Harry’s path and believes his son’s constant attacks and hurtful comments towards him are completely unfair,” the same person concluded.
