“Harry’s not going to go after The Queen, she’s sacrosanct. And he probably won’t go after Kate, who he’s very fond of. But he will go after Charles and Camilla and maybe William."
Prince Harry is all set to release his memoir later this year, a book that its publisher has described as “intimate and heartfelt”. According to Penguin Random House, Harry will “share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” according to Express.
There has been speculation as to what the book will be about, with some suggesting that Harry will write about his time as a royal.
However, a top royal author recently claimed that Prince Harry will “go after” Charles and Camilla in his explosive memoir and deepen the rift with his brother, per News.com.au.
The claim was made by Ex-Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown, 68, who shared that Harry “can’t stand” Camilla and does not want her to be Queen. “Harry’s not going to go after The Queen, she’s sacrosanct. And he probably won’t go after Kate, who he’s very fond of. But he will go after Charles and Camilla and maybe William," she told The Telegraph, ahead of the release of her new book, The Palace Papers.
Prince Harry's memoir said to reveal his 'true feelings' about Camilla and rock the monarchy to its foundations. If this is true he really has turned out to be a pathetic man. Time to grow up Harry.

“And that’s so unhelpful to them all at this particular moment; for William, that’s the big cloud in their relationship right now."
In fact, its publication could be more damaging than Harry and Meghan’s bombshell Oprah TV interview, added Brown. “William was disgusted about Meghan’s attack on Kate because she can’t answer back. But that’s nothing compared to how furious he’s going to be when this book comes out.”
She also shared that relations between the brothers were “very bad”.
“William has accepted Camilla in terms of what she means to his father. He’s been grown up about it. Harry, on the other hand, can’t stand Camilla. He doesn’t want Camilla to be queen.”
Brown, who wrote the Diana Chronicles in 2006 about the late Princess of Wales, was close friends with the royal. Meanwhile, Harry, who lives in California with his wife Meghan Markle and their two children, is said to have received a £15 million ($26 million) advance for his book.
Recently, royal expert and author of Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie, said that not only will Harry not write anything negative about his grandmother, but he will, in fact, celebrate her, according to Marie Claire.
We now know that much of what we see in the media about royals is PR, so I wonder if the princesses embraced Camilla or in the tabloids words were 'very close to her'. Was it part of the job to be nice your 'allowance's wife? Is this why they are afraid of Prince Harry's memoir? pic.twitter.com/cv6Kutzwz6— Malaika Helena (@MalaikaHelena) February 13, 2022
“Harry really is going out of his way to make sure that there isn’t material in there [the book] that can be seen as negative towards the Queen or her reign in any way whatsoever,” Scobie said. “He really wants to celebrate her life and his relationship with her in that book.”
“I think as much as the press want this to be a burn book and an attack on the institution, this is more just about his story, and, of course, his story is so much more than just the few years of his life as the Duke of Sussex,” he said. “I think for people expecting that warts and all moment, it’s not going to happen. That said, it’s still going to be fascinating.”
