Prince Harry’s memoir, the first-ever published by such a high-ranking member of the Royal Family, is set to be released this year. And it has widely been reported that his relatives are concerned that the book may plunge the Royal household into further controversy.
The move was described as an “olive branch” by royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams, who thought Prince Charles was hoping that Harry may cancel or at least delay his memoir.
In a poll of 3,360 Express.co.uk readers, 89 percent said Harry should cancel his autobiography, whilst 11 percent said he should not.
One reader, Dan Archer, said: “I don’t think Charles need dread it. The Harkle believers will love it, the non-believers will dismiss it.
“It will be an irrelevance really that will do as much, if not more harm to Harry than it will the Royal Family. The Oprah interview has damaged their credibility forever.”
Another reader, Rob, agreed that Prince Harry’s reputation has been “destroyed” since the moment he sat on Oprah’s interviewing couch, and warned others to take anything he writes with a “huge dollop of salt”.
A voter added that publishing an autobiography would “make a fool of him” and would be the “last nail in the coffin” for the Sussex’s relations with the Royal Family.
While another royal fan going by ‘G’ argued that the memoir “will make him look like even more of a snake”, and will lead to the Sussexes being “canceled”. There is no evidence, however, that Prince Harry’s book will detail family conflicts.
In a statement about the memoir, Prince Harry wrote: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man, I have become.
“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story—the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned—I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.
“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.” What’s your stance? Have your say in the comments section below.
