Prince Harry ‘tortured’ in ‘bond’ over memoir release: royal expert

Prince Harry is at odds over what to do with his memoir following the death of Queen Elizabeth II last month.

Royal expert and celebrity magazine editor Tina Brown has claimed the Duke of Sussex’s forthcoming memoir may never be published and he will be “tortured” over the ordeal.

The ‘Diana Chronicles’ author remarked at the Henley Literary Festival earlier this month that there may be ‘no way back’ for Harry, 38, to worm his way back into the royal family once he releases his book, the Telegraph reported .

Harry and his wife Meghan Markle left the company in 2020 and moved to California with their two children, Lilibet and Archie.

Brown said at the event, “They’re in this quandary now where they took all this money and Harry got this book deal where he’s supposed to spill all about his horrible life as king.”

“But now he’s actually being tortured because he understands that once he does it, there’s no going back,” she continued. Harry is also rushing to rewrite chapters after his grandmother’s death on September 8th.

“If the book continues, I don’t think there’s any way Harry could go back. That’s why I always thought that the book would never see the light of day,” the author continues.

Brown added: “The window is starting to close but I always thought at some point a deal would be made and [King] Charles would have to pay back the advance to keep Harry from writing this book.”

Last year’s Invictus Games founder’s memoir was originally slated for a November 2022 release; however, it has already been postponed to next year.

The royal family is also reportedly “very nervous” about the book, as Page Six revealed last week.

Tom Bower, author of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War Between the Windsors, noted that the upcoming book is a “time bomb”.

“I think everyone knows that the Sussexes can’t change the book in any way,” he said. “Can you make it worse? Because otherwise we would not generate any sales.”

Bower added that a chapter on the Queen’s funeral will be added and “has more material on how [Harry and wife Meghan Markle] were snubbed.”

Author Katie Nicholl claimed in her new biography, The New Royals, that King Charles III. wants to read the prince’s bombshell memoir before bestowing royal HRH titles on his children Lilibet Diana and Archie Harrison.

Nicholl claimed the new king was reportedly “reluctant” to make title changes for Archie (3) and Lilibet (1).

“We know that titles are important to Charles, and he reportedly wants to limit them to the highest level of royals,” the book reads.

“Would Charles go so far as to stop Archie and Lilibet from becoming a prince and princess now that the Sussexes are no longer working royals? According to a source close to the king, “It very much depends on what happens in the coming months, particularly with Harry’s book and her TV show,” Nicholl wrote.
