Prince Harry alienates Eugenie and Beatrice as sisters ‘stunned’ by Duke’s behaviour


PRINCE HARRY is said to have alienated royal sisters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice with the announcement that he is to publish a tell-all book about his life.

Earlier this month it emerged the Duke of Sussex has agreed to publish his memoirs, which will detail be an “intimate and heartfelt” account of the events that have shaped him through the years, including his time in the Royal Family, the army and experiences as a husband and father. The news of the book deal with Penguin Random House is said to have irked two of his closest allies – his cousins Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

The royal sisters, daughters to Prince Andrew and Sarah, Duchess of York, are said to have been stunned by the news of the book deal.

According to the MailOnline, a senior royal source said: “The emotional turmoil as they wait over a year for publication is going to be torturous.

“What’s really telling is even the relatives he remains closest to, like Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, are stunned by what he’s up to.”

The insider also said the Royal Family is concerned over how his father, Prince Charles and wife Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, will be portrayed.

The source said: “Let’s be honest, Harry has never been close to the Duchess of Cornwall. “If he documents their fraught relationship in the book it could be very damaging at a time when Charles is laying the groundwork for her to become Queen.”

Harry’s memoirs are expected to be released in late 2022, though publisher’s Penguin Random House have yet to give an official date.

The Duke said the book will share his “mistakes and lessons learned”, charting the events that have shaped him over the years.

Harry said: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

“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 first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

The publishers described the book as “intimate and heartfelt” and said the memoir will cover his time in the Royal Family, army and time as a husband and father.

All proceeds of the book will be donated to charity.

Last week it was claimed the Duke of Sussex would release four books under the deal with Penguin Random House, but that was quickly shot down by Harry’s spokesperson.

The official said: “Contrary to false media reports, there is only one memoir planned by The Duke of Sussex and it’s scheduled to be published in late 2022 as was announced earlier this week by Penguin Random House.”

Harry is said to have shared a particularly close bond with cousin Eugenie over the years, as the pair are just five years apart in age.

In Meghan and Harry’s biography Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Caroly Durand said “Harry and Eugenie have one of the most natural connections” of all the Queen’s grandchildren.

They added: “Like Harry, Eugenie is loyal, honest and great fun.

“The two had many nights out together in London, sneaking into back entrances of clubs, such as Mahiki, where Jack once was manager, or Tonteria, where in one of the VIP cave areas they downed shots from Mexican skull shaped glasses and a giant frozen margarita (with multiple straws).”
