Two-thirds of Brits are ‘not interested at all’ in reading Prince Harry’s tell-all new book – with over a third saying it is ‘inappropriate’ for him to publish it.
The Duke of Sussex has been secretly working on a memoir for nearly a year, it has been revealed.
Harry 36, confirmed the forthcoming release of his autobiography on Monday.
He is set to discuss Megxit and open up about the royal family after collaborating with a top American ghostwriter. The book is due out late next year.
But a YouGov survey found says almost one in 10 people say he should not have signed the publishing agreement – and most won’t read it.
In a poll of 5,808 adults in the UK, nearly 40 per cent agreed that the decision to write the book was not right.
Some 15 per cent thought it was ‘fairly inappropriate’.
In a blow to publisher Penguin Random House, nearly 80 per cent were ‘not very interested’ or ‘not interested at all’ in what Harry had to say.
Buckingham Palace fear further explosive revelations after it came to light Harry has linked up with an American “power ghostwriter”.
Sources close to the family told the Mirror the thought of the book has sparked a ‘tsunami of fear’ in royal circles.
In a statement confirming the book, the Duke said: “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.
“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
A source told the Daily Mirror the book has struck fear into the family.
“Ever since leaving royal life, Harry and Meghan have made claim after claim of how they allege they have been treated,” the insider explained.
“They say that it is their truth but there is only ever one truth.
“Since their interview with Oprah Winfrey tensions have been running very high as much of what they said has since been proven to be unreliable at best.
“There is a now tsunami of fear among the royals over what Harry will write.”
