Prince Harry has added more fuel to the flames of his royal rift with his family after announcing he has written a memoir about his life that will be published in late 2022. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who stepped down from royal duties in March 2020, have embarked on a series of bombshell interviews about their time as a senior royal. The royal couple are set to return to the UK to celebrate the Queen’s 70 years of service but royal officials are looking at how to stop the Sussexes from “overshadowing” the monarch, reports have suggested.
GB News presenter Dan Wootton said: “I’m heartened to see the Royal Family fighting back against Prince Harry after his crass decision to attempt to overshadow the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year with the publication of a bombshell autobiography.
“Officials are considering ways to uninvite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex from the official celebrations for the Queen so they don’t end up overshadowing the event.
“That makes a lot of sense to me.
“If this fame-hungry and selfish couple are going to continue to make life for the grieving Queen so difficult in her twilight years then the red carpet should no longer be rolled out for them for official events.”
Harry will cover his lifetime in the public eye, including his time in the military, marriage, and fatherhood.
The Duke said the memoir, to be published by Penguin Random House, will be written “not as the prince” he was, but as the man he has “become”.
Royal expert Robert Jobson has predicted the book will “impact” the Royal Family when published next year.
Speaking to Good Morning America, Mr Jobson said: “I think as night follows day this was going to happen. As soon as he went and lived in the states, I think a tell-all book was expected.

“I didn’t expect it to be coming out in the same year the Queen has been on the throne for 70 years.
“A time when obviously there is a huge rift with the Royal Family because I can’t see any feuds or rifts being healed while you’re writing your own memoirs.”
He added: “It has happened before, Edward VIII, when he was Duke of Windsor, wrote his memoirs just before the coronation and that cause a sensation.
“I have no doubt that this will be a huge hit in terms of sales.

“I would love to read his perspective but I think in terms of damage to the monarchy it’s certainly going to have an impact.”
Mr Jobson continued: “I don’t see this is a man who is worried about being a Prince, being a Duke, worried about what’s going on inside Windsor Castle.
“The reality is he’s his own man and he wants to tell his own story.
“I think it’s going to be a very interesting read because he’s had a rollercoaster ride through his life but the problem you’ve got is when you’re writing a memoir like this things can be interpreted one way or another.”
