Can’t Prince Harry stop the publisher from publishing his memoir even if he develops his conscience? Meghan Markle’s husband is ‘under contract’

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are planning to edit their Netflix docuseries and memoir. However, a royal expert, who has weighed in on the future of Prince Harry’s book, said he could not prevent its release.

Prince Harry couldn’t prevent the release of his book

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were estranged from the Royal Family after stepping back from royal duties in 2020. However, they had enjoyed a good relationship with the late Queen Elizabeth.

With King Charles on the throne, Prince Harry and Markle reportedly intend to “soften up” their content, so that it is not offensive to the Royal Family. However, he might not be able to make all the changes he had in mind. Moreover, he could not prevent the publication of the memoirs in case Prince Harry changed his mind.

“It’s past the point now where the publisher is just fine with getting that money back,” Duncan Larcombe, former royal editor of The Sun, told Fox News Digital.

It’s just the question, really, of how much the Queen’s death has meant that Harry and Meghan have had to rethink,” he added.

He continued: “I think it’s inevitable that with the delays people will start to speculate what this means. ‘Has Harry developed a conscience?’ awareness?’ that Harry might even stop Penguin from publishing, to be honest. It’s all under contract and it’s all signed and done, you know?”

Could Prince Harry make the changes he has in mind for his memoir?

The author of Prince Harry: The Insider Story believed the publisher had the upper hand in Prince Harry’s memoir. Penguin Random House agreed to delay the release, but many were unconvinced that this would allow Prince Harry to change the content to make it more Royal Family-friendly.

Royal biographer Tina Brown said the publisher paid Prince Harry because he was supposed to ‘tell all about his horrible life as a royal’ in his memoir. Unfortunately, dropping the book would mean “there is no turning back” for him in the royal fold.

Larcombe echoed the same sentiment adding that the publisher invested “a lot of time, effort, money and so on in producing the book, addressing it and doing all these things”, so it doesn’t will not only allow Prince Harry to “soften” the content due to the growing pressure he was feeling from his family.

“It might be their best-selling book of all time. Who knows,” Larcombe added. “So they won’t want to just turn around and say, ‘Good enough, Harry. Yeah? You don’t want to move the boat anymore right now. It just doesn’t work that way. They are in a commercial world now.

Prince Harry’s biographer Angela Levin, author of Harry: A Biography of a Princealso echoed Larcombe’s sentiment.

“I don’t know if the editor will let it because it’s almost ready, and the editors can’t suddenly change things quickly like a newspaper can,” said the author of “Harry: A biography of a prince” on GB News. . “We’ll have to wait and see what’s in there.”
