Prince Harry cant face Royal Family until after memoir release, says expert

Prince Harry "can't face" the Royal Family until after the release of his tell-all memoir, according to a royal expert.

The Duke of Sussex announced last year that he was penning an "intimate and heartfelt memoir" about his life.

Now, royal expert Richard Eden has said that Harry may be "keeping a distance" from the likes of Prince Charles and Prince William, given that the contents of the book may spark controversy.

Harry has previously said he was "writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become", reports the Express.

He added: "I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story — the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learnt — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think."

Harry recently returned to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee but was not seated near the senior royals at the only broadcasted event they attended.

Speaking on the Palace Confidential podcast, host Jo Elvin asked Mr Eden: "What could he [Harry] do at this point to bridge the gap [in the feud]."

Mr Eden said: "There's a lot Harry could do but I really do think he is keeping his family at a distance until his book is published.

"I really, really do."

He added: "I think that he is going to be saying some things which will be unpleasant and will go down badly with Prince Charles and Prince William and he almost, sort of, can't face them.

"I think that partly explains the awkward situation we had during the Jubilee and why they didn't want to spend time with each other."

No actual publication date has ever been confirmed, but the book was previously expected to be released in 2022.

This date, however, is looking to be pushed back after no update on the project.
