Prince Harry And Meghan Markle Ranted To Pals Over Royals' Treatment?
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex allegedly complained to their pals in London that they were "snubbed and mistreated" by the royal family during Queen Elizabeth's funeral. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle reportedly didn't feel welcome.
"Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's friends in London are whispering that the former royals have been complaining they were snubbed and mistreated at Queen Elizabeth's funeral," columnist Richard Johnson claimed, Express reported. "They both whined that the family wasn't as welcoming as they should have been."
Prince William's younger brother is reportedly still completing his memoir, which focuses on his childhood, experiences and relationship with his family. He is reportedly adding another chapter to "include the palace intrigue around their trip to England for the funeral of his grandmother."
However, the publisher allegedly wanted Prince Harry's memoir to be explosive. They reportedly wanted an attention-grabbing headline for his book.
"Insiders say that Penguin Random House paid more than $15 million for his story and they want it to contain scandalous headline-grabbing news," he added.
Royal Family Fears Prince Harry Will Attack Them In His Book
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been estranged from the royal family after they stepped back from their royal duties in 2020. Despite their public reunion with the members of the firm during the Queens' funeral, several insiders claimed their relationship with the royals has remained strained.
Johnson mentioned that the insiders fear Prince Harry's book "could bury any reconciliation" between him and his family.
The upcoming book is making the royals "hugely nervous" like it's a "time bomb," Page Six reported.
Some insiders claimed that Prince Harry wanted to edit the book to make it "softer" for his family following his grandmother's passing. That was reportedly the reason why he and his wife, Meghan Markle, wanted to stall it and so as their Netflix docuseries.

Unfortunately, some felt that he might not be able to edit his book to his liking as it's almost done, and the publisher is unlikely to agree with him "softening" the content as it will affect the sale.
"I think that everybody knows that the Sussexes can't amend the book in any way," Bower told Page Six. "Can they make it nastier? Because otherwise, we wouldn't get sales."
Prince Harry's biographer, Angela Levin, echoed the same sentiment.
"I don't know if the publisher will let him because it's almost ready to go, and publishers can't just suddenly quickly change things like a newspaper can," Levin said on GB News. "We'll have to wait and see what's in there."
