Royals ‘very real fears’ that Harry’s book deal could destabilise the monarchy
The Royal Family have "have very real" fears that Prince Harry's book deal could destabilise the monarchy, according to reports.
There are said to be concerns among insiders that revelations in his book could cause damage to Prince Charles' ascendancy to the throne by Harry's stories impacting on the future King's reputation.
Palace courtiers are also not confident that Harry and Meghan Markle's will give the royals advance copies which is causing anxiety.
The Royal Family have "very real fears that the book deal could destabilise the monarchy by undermining Charles' reputation and disrupting the transition which is slowly preparing the country for the succession", the Mail on Sunday reported.
Harry announced this week that he is to release a memoir promising to tell an "accurate and wholly truthful" account of his "highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned".
Prince Harry has reportedly secured a four-book deal which includes a wellness guide written by Meghan.
Set to be released in late 2022, Harry has said he is writing it "not as the prince I was born but as the man, I have become".

The book is described as the "definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him" and will be released to mark the 25th anniversary of the death of his mother Princess Diana
Another concern of palace aides is that the release could coincide with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee or possibly even over-shadow it.
There is also ‘anger and disappointment’ that the contents of the book will worry the Queen only months after the death of Prince Philip.
