I probably shouldn’t say that I don’t care what the firm has to say about Prince Harry or Meghan Markle, but obviously my ass is sitting here soaking up all the news about his memoir announcement and wondering when it is going on pre-order so I can buy it.
We all knew that it was a matter of time before the Palace jumped in and made a comment which is probably nothing like what they are saying to him behind the scenes. However, I think we all know that personal and public lives are completely different and we’re never going to hear the shit that Prince Charles and Prince William are probably talking.
Harry, being Harry, did give the family the heads up about the announcement, and a spokesperson for the Palace told People, “spoke privately with the royal family regarding the book’s publication very recently.”
And then added, “Any clarification about the book would be a question for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”
I don’t know about you, but I feel like the Palace may just be like give us an advanced copy so we’re prepared for whatever comes our way. Do I think that Harry is going to publicly name names for shit? No. I think he’s shown that he knows how to make a statement without throwing people under the bus.
Though, I admit, I wish that he would. I wish we knew a lot of things, but I also think that he’s smart to keep shit private. He’s got a wife and two kids to think about.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” said Harry in a statement about the book on Monday. “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 learned — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
He continued, “I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
No lie, I will be being like ten copies and if he signs some copies? Then I am willing to wait in Comic Con like conditions to get that. I have no shame.
Prince Harry‘s memoir is due to release in 2022.
