Royal expert wouldnt rule out response from royals to Harrys book


Prince Harry's imminent memoir could see a response from the royals, according to expert Katie Nicholl.

Speaking exclusively to OK!, the author of The New Royals was covering the subject of Netflix's much-debated Harry & Meghan docuseries, when the book itself – titled Spare and due to hit shelves next month – cropped up in conversation.

"Whilst I think in this instance the palace's lack of response is the right thing, there needs to be a shot across the bow from the palace to Harry and Meghan [Markle] that this is not going to be tolerated and this has to stop," she said, alluding to the pair's many claims.

"We know there is going to be an autobiography and I wonder if we will hear from the palace after the publication of the autobiography. I wouldn't rule it out."

It comes after royal correspondent Jennie Bond also weighed in on the Duke of Sussex's upcoming tome just last month.

"It’s going to be the Harry and Meghan show at the end of this year and beginning of next with the docuseries and Harry’s book. They’ll be dominating the headlines, which is presumably what they want to do,” she told OK!

"I think Harry’s book will be more controversial than the Netflix docuseries because the title is searingly honest."

Jennie went on to add: "I imagine the royals were a bit sad when they heard the name. It’s sad that that's how he has felt all his life. It’s sad, but what can they do about it?

"It's the way the Royal family works, but it's also a way quite a lot of families work quite a lot, such as the farming community. In life, it's not as if he didn't have a role.

"It’s just he wasn’t going to be King and I’m not sure he wanted to be that. But clearly he is a wounded man. And he's going to explain the state of his mental health and how he feels his life has gone. I think it will also show that he's found peace now, which is great. People still have great affection for Harry.

"He was always favourite amongst the public and hopefully he will regain that popularity."

Despite this ongoing disturbance inside The Firm, it's been reported that King Charles III will in fact mention both Prince Harry, 38, and his American wife, 41, in the televised Christmas speech.
