King Charles could do the worst thing — cut ties with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, depending on the contents of his memoir, according to a royal expert. The Duke of Sussex's memoir titled Spare will be out early next year.
King Charles Has Plans If Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Go Fully Rogue?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have two major projects on the way — their Netflix docuseries and Prince Harry's memoir. However, there are concerns that the contents of both projects will sever their ties with the royal family.
British journalist and investigative reporter Tom Bower weighed in on the issue. For him, Prince Harry's memoir could "make or break" his relationship with the royals.
"This book is really make or break. I imagine that King Charles has been warned that any retaliation won't be pretty," Bower told The Sun.
He also shared what awaits the Sussexes. According to him, Prince Harry and Markle could lose their royal titles and their children might not be given their HRH and royal titles.
"All that King Charles can really do is to withhold the titles for his grandchildren Archie and Lilibet. Ultimately, I suppose, he could take away Harry and Meghan's titles as well, but that's pretty drastic."
Aside from the titles, if things are worst, then the royals may cut ties with the Sussexes, Bower claims.
"I don't know what else he can do. If it is as bad as I think it is, then Harry and Meghan have gone fully rogue," he continued. "The best the family can do is to break ties with them."
What To Expect In Prince Harry's Book That's Coming Ahead Of King Charles' Coronation?
Last week, Penguin Random House announced that Prince Harry's memoir, Spare, will be out on Jan. 10, 2023, months before King Charles' coronation on May 6. The title raised several eyebrows as many were convinced it referred to his position in the monarchy.
Prince Harry was dubbed the "spare" growing up. He was the "spare" to his older brother Prince William, who is the future heir to the throne.
Royal expert Duncan Larcombe, a former royal editor at The Sun, said the word "spare" was derogatory. He also speculated that the book would contain his struggles growing up in Prince William's shadow.
"The spare to the heir is someone who is not as important and as worthy as their older sibling," the author of the book Prince Harry: The Inside Story told Fox News Digital. "And that's certainly something that hasn't been a very easy role historically for Prince Harry but also Prince Andrew, Charles's brother, and of course, Princess Margaret, the queen's sister. So it kind of looks very clearly that Harry's intent on taking a kind of victim position, because he's giving the [title] a derogatory term, and presumably what will follow is a book about how hard it was being born in his brother's shadow."
Will King Charles and the royals cut ties with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle once Spare is out?
