Harry’s memoirs are said to be the first instalment of a four-part series, released by Penguin Random House, and as an independent royal, the Duke of Sussex’s book is unlikely to be screened by members of the Royal Family ahead of its release.
The term is an allusion to the threat of imminent and ever-present peril, and affects those in positions of power, and infers disastrous consequences for the royals.
The publication of the highly-anticipated book could result in a backlash for Princess Eugenie, according to former royal editor Duncan Larcombe who appeared on True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat today.
He told host of Royal Beat, Kate Thornton: “’I always laugh, if [Princess] Eugenie is helping with the book, let’s just hope for her sake that does not mean that she too does not have to live in exile when the rest of the Royal Family are all offended”.
Mr Larcombe hinted that the contents of the book could be controversial and that Eugenie could be flirting with danger if she is involved with the publication.
In reference to the memoirs, Russel Myers, royal editor for The Mirror told the Pod Save the Queen podcast:
“Nobody is going to come off unscathed here. Maybe this is some sort of therapy for Harry where he can unburden himself, but nobody in the Royal Family is going to come off unscathed”.
The book is faced with nervousness and trepidation due to previous comments made by Harry and Meghan
The book is faced with nervousness and trepidation, which is likely due to the no-holds-barred approach shown by the prince in the past.
Mr Larcombe’s “life in exile” comment alludes to the tensions caused within the family after Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle decided to step back from royal duties after clashes with the Royal Family.
In the interview, Harry also suggested that his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William felt “caged” by the institution but were unable to free themselves in the same means as he had.
The issues mentioned in the interview were referred to in a brief statement by the Palace which said they would “be addressed by the family privately”.
Princess Eugenie is the younger daughter of Prince Andrew, Duke of York who has come under scrutiny due to a lawsuit that accused the Duke of rape being filed earlier this week.
The Princess has joined her father and other senior members of the royal family at Balmoral ahead of “crisis talks” surrounding the allegations.
Virginia Roberts, now married and known as Virginia Giuffre, has instigated a lawsuit with the intent to sue Prince Andrew due to claims she was forced to have sex with the royal under duress while still a minor.
Prince Andrew strenuously denies all claims and has not yet officially responded to the new lawsuit.
