Harry will return to UK to promote book but could lose title he goes rogue

Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, is due to be published on January 10 next year and the Duke of Sussex is reportedly planning to return to the UK to publicise the launch.

He’s likely to get a good deal of press coverage even without any public appearances, though, with reports that the book contains several bombshell revelations that could rock the Royal Family.

Senior royals are said to be “bracing themselves” for the publication of the 416-page book.

According to a source quoted by The Sun, there’s a tension between Harry – who has been seeking to moderate some of the more shocking claims in the wake of the late Queen’s death – and his publishers who have been pressuring him to “sex it up”.

“There is a real concern that that means Harry has had to sex up the book and include revelations that even he might not even be that comfortable with," the source claimed.

Harry, and his ghost writer JR Moehringer are said to have made several last-minute changes.

Tom Bower, author of Rebel Prince, which described the then Prince Charles's attempts to recover his popularity after the death of Princess Diana, says that the book is “make or break” for Harry.

“I imagine that King Charles has been warned that any retaliation won't be pretty,” Bower says.

“All that King Charles can really do is to withhold the titles for his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet.

“Ultimately, I suppose, he could take away Harry and Meghan's titles as well, but that's pretty drastic.

“I don't know what else he can do. If it is as bad as I think it is, then Harry and Meghan have gone fully rogue”.

Another source told The Mirror that Harry’s book could scupper any hope for a reconciliation efforts between the Sussexes and the royals: “This book could spell the end for any relationship Harry wants to have with his family, it's desperately sad”.

Publishers Penguin Random House said: "As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would play out…

"For Harry, this is his story at last."

Buckingham Palace has said it would not comment on the book announcement.
