Harry will ‘spill palace secrets but avoid damaging’ details that may hurt Queen

Prince Harry will reportedly reveal "behind the Palace walls secrets" in his upcoming bombshell memoir, but won't expose "damaging" details out of respect for the Queen.

A royal expert has claimed the Duke of Sussex will cover his personal life story after he promised an "intimate" account of his life.

Mikhaila Friel says he will stop short of exposing "hugely damaging" details in the book as he respects his grandmother, the Queen too much.

Whilst on Royally US, host Joe Drake asked whether the book will be "tell-all" or a "boring biography" from the prince.

He said: "Do you think it will be more of a tell-all as some say, or a little bit more of a boring biography that is a little bit more of just 'here's my life story' as opposed to behind the Palace walls secrets?"

Ms Friel said she thinks it'll be a "mixture" of both, writes The Express.

She added: "I know that sounds confusing, but we do have to remember that Harry has a lot of respect for the Queen, so it's very unlikely that he would put something in there that would have a hugely damaging effect on the Queen or to the monarchy.

"We have to remember so many other royals have been involved in tell-alls or biographies in some form or another, Princess Diana was involved in her own one, Sarah Ferguson, Prince Charles – so it's nothing we haven't really seen before to be honest."

The Duke recently announced he would be releasing his memoirs through Penguin Random House, back on July 19.

The book is expected to hit stores in late 2022, with the name and full details of what to expect not yet been released.

Harry said during the announcement: "I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

"I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and 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."

The memoir is expected to cover his upbringing, childhood, career in both the military and as a working senior royal.

It's believed he will also speak about his time as a new father and husband.

Penguin Random House said they were "thrilled" to be publishing Prince Harry's memoirs.

They called him "one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time".

The financial details of the book have not been disclosed, with estimates claiming the duke received a $20million (£14.5m) advance for the deal.

Buckingham Palace has not directly responded to the announcement, but briefly said: "Any clarification about the book would be a question for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex."
