According to the latest result of the new YouGov poll, Prince Harry’s notoriety is currently on the decline. Even if the publication of these memories will not take place until the end of 2022, the poll shows a disinterest of the British. Indeed, 80% of Britons are “not very interested” in what the prince has to say. Some of those 80% would not even be interested at all, while more than a third of them consider the publication of the book “inappropriate”.
Prince Harry is constantly promoting his book, he talks about it on his personal website. Moreover, it will be a year that Harry has been working slowly on his memoirs and he seems to be well supervised for that. Indeed, the prince works closely with a renowned ghostwriter for the writing of his book. However, the latest YouGov poll result is likely to be a blow to the publisher of Harry’s book, Penguin Random House.
“There is now a tsunami of fear among the royal family over what Harry is going to write.”
Despite the current rather disheartening statistics, Prince Harry seems keen to continue his momentum. Far from leaving things to chance, the Duke of Sussex speaks knowingly about his memories. On his Archewell website, the prince said: “deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned in my life so far and look forward to people reading.” Regarding his book, he speaks of “a first-hand account of my life, which is precise and entirely truthful”.
Based on current speculation, we can expect more explosive statements about the Megxit and the Royal Family. It’s worth noting that the tension is still palpable between the Sussexes and the royals, and at the rate things are going, it’s not going to get any better. According to an insider, “ever since leaving royal life Harry and Meghan have consistently made complaints about how they claim to have been treated.” This expert also told the Daily Mirror that: “They [Harry and Meghan] say it is their truth, but there is never only one truth.”
