Prince Harry’s comprehensive memoir is due out later this year and could “shake the monarchy to the core” but also dashed any hope of the brothers’ reconciliation anytime soon

Any chance of the rift between Prince William and his brother being healed has been lost thanks to Prince Harry’s forthcoming reveal reminders, according to a royal expert.
The siblings have been at odds since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex left the company in early 2020 and moved to the United States.
It was hoped the couple could meet for talks ahead of Prince Philip’s memorial service this week, but Prince Harry has decided not to attend over safety concerns for his young family.
With Harry’s new book due for release in the near future, there may not be any hope of them repairing their relationship anytime soon, says expert Richard Fitzwilliams Daily Star.
He told the ToDiForDaily podcast: “From my point of view, both brothers were inseparable.
“There is no doubt that one of the tragedies is that they took very different paths.”
“The problem is what will be in this book.”

Earlier this year, a friend warned that Harry’s book – due out before Christmas – will “shake the monarchy to the core” as it reveals his true feelings for figures like the Duchess of Cornwall.
His friend added: “He has a lot to say about it. People think he’s holding back to respect the family, but it’s not.
“He has a multi-million pound book deal and in return retains a lot of his opinions. The memoir contract states that it should contain personal details on personal and family arrangements.
“And it’s going to be a really intimate exploration of his feelings towards his family and what caused the relationship to fail.”
“If you think he’s gone soft, you’re wrong.
“Just wait for the book to come out because it’s going to shake the monarchy to the core.”
Ghostwriter JR Moehringer, a US Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, is helping to pen the memoir, which will explore Harry’s childhood, his military service – including the Afghan war – and his marriage.
In a statement, the prince explained his motivation for penning his story.
He said: “I am not writing this as the prince I was born to be, but as the man I have become.

“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and I hope that by telling my story — the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned — I can help to show.” that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.
“I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned so far and look forward to people reading a first-hand account of my life that is accurate and absolutely truthful.”
Biographer Omid Scobie added that some things in the book will be taboo.
During an episode of the Royally Obsessed podcast, he said, “I’ve been told by sources that Harry makes every effort to ensure there is nothing in it that could be construed as negative towards the Queen or her reign.”
