Prince Harry’s long-awaited memoir will be out in less than two months.
Not unexpectedly, it appears that the royal family is not looking forward to the next days.
Indeed, there are concerns that the book will worsen the already-existing Windsor family feuds.
Of course, they claimed the same thing about the Queen’s death, Charles’ ascension, and Season 5 of The Crown. Despite all odds, the family remains friendly.
However, other royal analysts, including journalist Katie Nicholl, believe that Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship will end before the January release of Spare.
“William found it very difficult when Harry stepped aside from his royal duties, and I think that’s partially why this split hasn’t been bridged, because, you know, William can’t totally forgive Harry for what he’s done,” Nicholl recently said.
It had a major impact on him, Princess Catherine, and their young family. As a result, they were placed in a prominent location. As a result, they were thrown into the spotlight much earlier.
Nicholl believes William must feel betrayed after witnessing his brother depart their connection after a lifetime of mutual support.
“I believe William had always expected to have his brother’s support.” And she continued, “I don’t think it was only because Harry decided to leave and stand down.”
“I believe a huge part of it was the manner in which he chose to do that and what William viewed as considerable disrespect to the institution and to his family, and his grandmother,” the author explained.
“If he is going to divulge all in the most literal sense,” royal specialist Daniela Elser remarked, “it would very well mark the final torching of whatever shaky bridges remain between himself and his family.”
Elser pointed out that the timing of Harry’s book is questionable:
Why wait until after the potentially lucrative Christmas shopping season when the memoir is ready to print right now?
Given the possible lack of competition, might Harry’s book’s release date be a ploy to ensure that it tops bestseller lists? Someone else inquired.
Is it feasible that the final book may be far less dramatic than expected? It’s acceptable if Harry has had second, third, or sixteenth thoughts about this autobiography.
According to journalist Simon Heffer, the new Prince of Wales is “appalled with his brother’s general behavior” and “simply can’t believe the book is coming out at all.”
But, Heffer continued, there’s reason to believe the book will be gentler than most people expect.
According to him, Harry will not “enjoy living in exile in America for very much longer,” and he is concerned that William will not “accept a reconciliation” if he and Meghan return to the UK.
Of course, how William feels will be heavily influenced by the content of the book and King Charles’ reaction.
If the book is actually gravely destructive, in which case bridges may have finally been destroyed, “Courtiers feel he would welcome him, and the Duchess, back to these shores to live permanently,” Heffer added.
“The most difficult aspect of the following year will most likely be when he finally sits down to read his younger son’s book. His reaction to it will demonstrate how capable our future king is as a King and as a father.”
Readers may be disappointed if Harry’s memoir is simply an attempt to regain his family’s favor, but Charles would certainly welcome it!
