According to The Times, the news of Prince Harry’s memoir – worth a reported $20 million – was met with “big sighs” from other royals.
Meanwhile, The Telegraph reports that the palace would be “afraid” of what revelations the book might contain, suggesting they would not sign off on the memoir.
It reported: “The Royal family is unlikely to be given advance sight of the memoir, although the publisher will be required to show them any extracts that could be considered defamatory.
“Were the book to be published solely in the US, the Royals would have little chance of legal retaliation as their freedom of speech laws are so strong.
“Experts said that as it was also being published in the UK, the Duke’s team would be foolish not to run anything of legal concern past Buckingham Palace, but it is unlikely they will be inclined to edit the tome to suit them.
“Similarly, Buckingham Palace might feel that a complaint about any one observation might suggest it was giving tacit approval to everything else.”

It has been reported that he was given a multi-million-pound sum as an advance for the book.
However, a source told The Mirror the announcement triggered a “tsunami of fear” within the royal circle as palace-dwellers fear further claims about Harry and Meghan’s treatment.
