Prince Harry doesn’t view his $ 20 million memoir as a ‘fk you’ to the royal family, Page Six has been told.
As we revealed, our royal exclusivity on Harry’s book deal left the palace in turmoil on Monday after the renegade royal left them in the dark about his plans.
But we are told the Duke of Sussex believes he will simply speak his ‘truth’ in the memoir which will be released at the end of next year.
We are told that Harry says he is not writing the book to deliberately hurt his family, including his brother Prince William and his father Prince Charles, insisting he approached it as a means to reflect on his life and correct misinformation.

It’s not part of a plan to leave his family behind once and for all, they say.
However, royal insiders see it quite differently, as one put it: “On what planet does Harry think it’s not a ‘fk you’ to family? “
Even members of Harry’s closest family, including his cousin Princess Eugenie and Zara Phillips, are less than thrilled with the book, other sources tell us.

The Daily Mail reported on Tuesday that Clarence House is also said to be worried about what Harry might write about his stepmother Camilla.
A source told the outlet: ‘Let’s be honest Harry has never been close to the Duchess of Cornwall. If he documents their strained relationship in the book, it could be very damaging as Charles sets the stage for her to become Queen. “

While there is still hope that Charles and Harry’s relationship can be mended, courtiers don’t believe a reunion with William is being considered, they told the Mail.
However, as we revealed, the brothers could be reunited in September at a larger memorial to celebrate the unveiling of the status of their late mother, Princess Diana, in Kensington Palace Gardens.
The unveiling earlier this month had to be limited to just 15 people due to COVID-19 guidelines and the two brothers were seen sharing a smile, raising hopes of a rapprochement.
The book’s publication in late 2022 will come months after the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, which Harry, his wife Meghan Markle and their children Archie and Lilibet are expected to attend.
A royal source said: ‘Who knows what’s going to happen? This book will not be released until well after the Jubilee, it is still too early to know what will happen. “

Breaking the news of his book, Harry said in a statement: “I am writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, literally and figuratively, and my hope is that by telling my story – the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that it doesn’t matter. where we come from, we have more in common than we realize.
“I am deeply grateful that I have had the opportunity to share what I have learned in my life so far and look forward to people reading a firsthand account of my life that is accurate and totally truthful. “
