Prince Harry branded hypocritical by pals in firm warning over memoir stories

Prince Harry has been warned by old pals to not dish the dirt on them in his new book, it is claimed.

Friends from the Duke of Sussex's Army days, as well as schoolmates from Eton, reportedly say they will not hold back in revealing tales of their own if he publishes anything scandalous about them.

Harry announced last week that he would be penning a memoir in a multi-million pound deal with Penguin Random House, which mates fear could "play havoc" with their lives.

The royal has promised to "tell the whole truth" in the book, which is due to be published next year.

According to the Mail on Sunday, if Harry, 36, chooses to reveal wild stories about his friends, they will respond with anecdotes of their own from the prince's past.

A friend told the newspaper: "It feels very hypocritical given Harry chucked people out of his friendship group for talking to the press.

"There is a fear that he's going to reveal details of his hedonistic youth which some worry will play havoc with their careers and personal lives."

Another pal said ominously: "Harry's mates have remained loyal to him… so far."

When describing what fans can expect from the book expected, Harry said it will be made up of "experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons" which his friends are concerned could paint them in a bad light.

A source said: "If Harry slams any of his old school and military buddies in his new book they have pledged to break ranks to tell their story."

Harry's old pals started to become slightly miffed by Harry when he snubbed them for his wedding reception but made room for the likes of new celeb mates Oprah Winfrey and George Clooney, the Mail on Sunday reports.

And a source says Harry's pals are nervous that "friendly emails have gone unanswered, which hasn't instilled much confidence".

Sources said the Duke of Sussex had publishing houses start their bids for a deal with him and wife Meghan Markle at £18 million.

Publishing giants Penguin Random House won the rights with an agreement which is reported to reach £29 million in a deal that is expected to see Meghan release a 'wellness' guide.

The Royal Family have "have very real" fears that the book deal could destabilise the monarchy, according to reports.

There are said to be concerns among insiders that revelations in his book could cause damage to Prince Charles' ascension to the throne by Harry's stories impacting on the future King's reputation.

A representative for Harry has been contacted for comment.
