"Her Majesty has been at great pains to try to keep her relationship with her grandson and his family separate from the decisions she needs to make professionally, so to speak. And the invitation for them to join her next year was a genuine one," a source says. "Although things have been very difficult, there was a small, but enduring hope that enough time would have elapsed for things to heal. But the feeling internally [now] is that this book will be the last straw. It's emerged that Harry has been secretly working on it for some time and he has made clear that he and his ghostwriter (journalist and novelist J R Moehringer) will leave no stone unturned. The suggestion he could even be seen with his family again in the future is looking increasingly implausible. A lot of people suspect this is the end of the road."

Meanwhile, another source says "To bring out the book in the year of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee is being seen as deeply disrespectful. There will be a whole year of celebrations... yet it will now be characterized by a drip-feed of revelations, serializations and, eventually, publication. It doesn't matter what reassurances he tries to give his family about what will be in it. The Oprah interview proved how hollow those words can be."

Sounds like the royals are being a little dramatic TBH, especially since a source tells Page Six that Harry's book is not meant to deliberately hurt his family, and that he just wants to tell his truth.

Guess we'll all just have to pre-order this thing as soon as it's avail and see what happens!

The Duke of Sussex is penning an "intimate and heartfelt" look at his life.

Can't wait to read it in a single sitting!

Here's how the royal family is reacting to Harry's book ... 👀

As the Prince puts pen to paper to tell the “definitive” version of his life story, he also holds significant power—and responsibility—over how others are seen.

"I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," he said in a statement.

The Duke of Cambridge will write the introduction for Earthshot: How to Save Our Planet, a book about the Earthshot Prize.

The memoir is said to cover the prince’s life from childhood to present day.

While longtime royal family fans’ interest was definitely piqued on Monday after Random House press announced it would be publishing a memoir by Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex’s own family was reportedly less than thrilled with the news.

Prince Harry to publish memoir

Prince Harry Less Popular Than Prince Andrew Among U.K. Boomers

Newsweek 21 July, 2021 - 03:10pm

The Duke of Sussex's popularity with people born between 1946 and 1964 has sunk to 12 percent in a new poll. His uncle, Prince Andrew, is just above on 13 percent, alongside Harry's wife, Meghan Markle, also on 13 percent.

The trio occupied the three bottom spots in a survey that measures the popularity of 15 members of the royal family. The news comes despite allegations that Prince Andrew had sex with a trafficking victim of the convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein. Andrew denies the allegations.

British pollster YouGov conducts rolling surveys and grouped its data from April, May and June to produce the rankings, with the most recent sample made up of around 1,500 U.K. adults.

Queen Elizabeth II is the most popular royal among baby boomers, with 82 percent of those surveyed having a positive opinion of her. She is followed by Kate Middleton, on 78 percent.

Princess Anne and Prince William came next, both on 71 percent.

In the poll for adults of all ages, Meghan's popularity increased to 32 percent and Harry's rose to 31 percent. Prince Andrew was far behind on 10 percent.

The three still occupied the bottom three spots on the poll, however. The queen was at No. 1 (76 percent), followed by William (72 percent) and Kate (64 percent).

Harry and Andrew occupy similar roles in the royal family—both were born the "spare" second son with an older brother who was direct heir to the throne. Both served in the military and were deployed to war zones.

The Duke of Sussex appears to be sliding in the YouGov poll, with 45 percent of British adults surveyed saying they liked him in March and 40 percent in April.

Meghan's rating seems to have rallied slightly, however, after scoring 29 percent in April and 31 percent in March, according to the polling company.

Harry's tumble has come during a period of repeated criticisms of his family, starting with the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey, which was broadcast on March 7.

In May, Harry told the Armchair Expert podcast he had experienced "genetic pain" from his upbringing with Prince Charles.

Later the same month, he accused the royal family of "total neglect" over his pleas for help dealing with the media.

Harry is now writing a memoir, which is due to be published by Penguin Random House at the end of 2022, and is expected to include more details on his disputes with his family.

Other members of the royal family have been markedly less vocal about his comments, with the queen releasing a single statement in response to the couple's Oprah interview.

In a statement issued by Buckingham Palace, she said: "The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately."

William's on-the-record rebuttal to reporters in March was a single sentence: "We are very much not a racist family."

Prince Andrew withdrew from public life in November 2019, just days after giving an interview to the BBC about his former friendship with Epstein, who died in jail in August 2019. The interview sparked a furious backlash.

Asked by the BBC about Virginia Roberts Giuffre's allegation that she was forced to have sex with Andrew in London, New York and the U.S. Virgin Islands, the duke said "absolutely no to all of it."

Kate Middleton and Prince William just hit a new milestone together

cosmopolitan.com 21 July, 2021 - 05:09am

Is this proof that they're the most popular royals?

While the Royal Family are big fans of keeping things traditional in many ways, they've also worked hard to stay relevant and move with the times. Now, everybody from The Queen herself (although somehow we doubt she's actually running it), to Prince Charles and Camilla, and Princess Eugenie have their own social media accounts.

But, it seems that particular congratulations are in order for The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge on that front, as the couple have now hit 13 million followers on Instagram - thus further cementing their popularity amongst the general public and royal enthusiasts.

Comparatively, the official Royal Family account (@theroyalfamily) - which acts as a news source for The Queen, as well as sharing the occasional throwback photo or sending out birthday wishes to family members - has 10.3 million followers. Which is still no mean feat, of course!

Princess Eugenie, who tends to use her account to discuss causes close to her heart, write sweet tributes to her family and share adorable photos of her baby boy, August, has 1.5 million followers. Coincidentally, this is the same number as @clarencehouse, which serves as the go-to for anything Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, related.

Over on Prince William and Kate Middleton's @dukeandduchessofcambridge account (which recently changed its handle from @kensingtonroyal, to be more in-keeping with their newly created YouTube channel), their 13 million eager followers are regularly treated to photos and videos of the couple as they carry out their public duties, as well as more behind-the-scenes personal photos.

One recent shot of the Duchess of Cambridge wearing a more casual outfit than we're used to seeing her in (skinny jeans and a white ribbed top), while receiving her first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, netted over a million likes:

It's become a much-awaited tradition that each year, the Cambridges share an unseen portrait of each of their children to celebrate their birthday, too. Prince George, their eldest, is set to turn eight tomorrow and many are already looking forward to (hopefully) seeing a new image of the future King.

The couple also regularly post tributes to other family members on significant occasions, such as Father's Day or following a birth announcement. Most recently, after Prince Harry (William's brother) and his wife, Meghan Markle, welcomed their daughter Lilibet into the world, the Cambridge's official account shared a black and white photo of the couple with the caption: "We are all delighted by the happy news of the arrival of baby Lili. Congratulations to Harry, Meghan and Archie." It garnered over a million likes and more than 13,000 comments.

Congratulations to Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, on surpassing 13 million followers - we look forward to seeing what you share next!
