Harry memoir may ‘bring royal issues to light that pre-date Meghan’ – biographer

Royal biographer Omid Scobie has claimed that Prince Harry’s memoir will delve into historical issues within the institution of the Royal Family from before the time of Meghan Markle's arrival into the Firm.

The prince announced in July that his memoir would be released in late 2022.

He said: “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.”

Now, Omid Scobie, who recently re-released unofficial biography Finding Freedom with a new chapter, has claimed the Duke of Sussex’s memoir will question some of the supposedly deeper rooted issues within the institution of Buckingham Palace.

Speaking on the Royally Obsessed podcast, he said: “There’s so much more to his story than the past couple of years.

“I do think that Harry will talk about issues within the institution and may bring other issues to light that even pre-date Meghan.

“There’s so much about his life as the spare that we really don’t know, and I think that biographies that have existed in the past have only really scratched the surface on that.

“He’s the only one that has these stories to tell and that’s what I’m excited about reading the book for. I feel like I have Sussex fatigue so I’m curious about the earlier stuff… carving out that path that made you the unwanted spare from a very young age.”

Still, Omid suggested that there might be only limited room for bombshells to be dropped.

He claimed: “I think Harry is probably going to be very careful that it’s sort of filtered and done very respectfully.

“In fact, that’s one of the things that a source close to him said to me when it was announced, he was like ‘don’t expect fireworks and drama, because ultimately this is his story, this isn’t other people’s stories’.”
