Buckingham Palace could take steps to persuade Prince Harry to abandon his forthcoming memoir, a royal expert has suggested.

Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown suggested representatives should pay the Duke of Sussex a fee on the condition that he not publish the book, which it says is “intimate and heartfelt”.

It is not yet known when Harry will publish the much-anticipated memoir. A spokesman for publisher Penguin Random House declined to confirm whether they would be released later this year as planned.

The mystery surrounding the book comes as Harry and Meghan return to the UK together for the first time since moving to the US over two years ago.

Ms Brown, who wrote The Diana Chronicles in 2007, said in The times : “Someone needs to go to Harry and try to say, ‘We’re going to give you a check for the fee you negotiated for the book, and in return we’re asking you not to do it.'”

Penguin Random House announced last year that the Duke would be writing a memoir that is “tentatively scheduled for publication in late 2022.”

The 37-year-old is believed to have received a multimillion-pound advance on the books, with the “proceeds” set to go to charity.

He was also rumored to be working with US ghostwriter JR Moehringer, who wrote Andre Agassi’s memoir.

The delayed release date is believed to come as a relief to the royal family, some of whom are no doubt concerned about the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey.

The later-than-scheduled release also means focus won’t be diverted from the Queen’s platinum jubilee, and gives Harry a chance to write about the celebrations he’s attending with Meghan and their two children.

Last night a convoy of cars took Harry, Meghan, Archie and Lilibet from Farnborough Airport to Frogmore Cottage, which used to be their home before they moved abroad.

On the Queen’s decision to send a car for the Sussexes, a Sun Insiders said: “The Queen believed it was the right thing to do.”

Harry and Meghan will not be on the Buckingham Palace balcony after the Trooping of the Color today but will be involved in other celebrations.

Reports also suggest that the couple will finally officially introduce Lilibet to the Queen at a possible party tomorrow on her first birthday.

On Saturday it’s the Epsom Derby – an event the Queen often attends – but it has been reported she may no longer plan to go.

The 96-year-old monarch, who suffers from mobility issues, is said to want to calm down during her milestone celebrations, with her daughter Princess Anne replacing her at the racecourse instead, the Sunday Times reported.

The Sussexes may also take part in the anniversary competition, which takes place on Sunday, although this has not been confirmed.
