Palace aides 'could launch legal action against Harry and Meghan if book is inaccurate'

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle could face legal action if the Duke's forthcoming memoir is inaccurate, a source has claimed.  Palace aides are reportedly prepared for the book to contain a string of bombshell allegations but will launch court action if they believe it includes untruths.  Last week Harry announced he would be releasing a memoir in 2022 after secretly beavering away on the book for nearly a year.  He has now agreed a publication deal with Penguin Random House and the book will coincide with the Queen's Jubilee year.  The publishing company calls it an "intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time" and promises “an honest and captivating personal portrait.”

However it is claimed a small group of staff who worked for Harry and Meghan are now said to be concerned that the book could promote 'a false narrative' of how they were treated while living in the UK, reports Mail Online.  A royal insider told the website: “Harry and Meghan's former staff members are convinced that this book is being written to settle scores and will likely include a lot of detail about their time within the Royal Family.  Based on the Oprah Winfrey interview, some of these ex-workers simply do not trust that a full and accurate picture will be presented.  Conversations have already started about what steps they might be able to take to protect their own reputation and that of the monarchy post-publication.”

Another source added that "legal remedies" could be available if the book “smears any individual staff members unfairly.  Although it has not been confirmed how much Harry is getting for the book deal, it has been reported he could have netted an advance worth £14.5 million.  The Sun cites royal expert Robert Jobson as saying that Harry has received a multi-million pound advance for the title.  However all proceeds from the book will be donated to charity.  Harry's old Eton and Army friends have reportedly warned him not to reveal their secrets in his memoir.  Friends are said to be gearing up to retaliate by revealing their own secrets about Harry after years of refusing to gossip about him to the media.  A pal said: “It feels very hypocritical given Harry chucked people out of his friendship group for talking to the press."

Tensions between Harry and some of his military pals are said to have been sparked when he reportedly failed to invite them to his wedding to Meghan in 2018 but celeb friends such as George Clooney were included.

I don't think Harry cares unless he is taken to court and found guilty of lying.
