Prince Harry said that his $20 million memoir was not a slap in the face to the royal family. Instead, the Duke of Sussex feels he would simply tell his "truth" in the said memoir.

According to Fox News, the memoir is set to be released at the end of next year. Harry's book deal had reportedly left the palace in uproar for leaving them in the dark about his plans.

Page Six reported that Prince Harry had been secretly writing a memoir for almost a year. The Duke of Sussex said he's not writing the book to hurt his family, particularly his brother, Prince William, and his father, Prince Charles.

But royal insiders see the case differently, with one saying that what makes Prince Harry think that this is not a "f*** you" to the royal family.

Other sources also reported that members of the family closest to Harry, such as his cousin Princess Eugenie and Zara Phillips, were less thrilled about the book.

Prince Harry's Memoir

Clarence House had also voiced concerns about Prince Harry's writing about his stepmother Camilla, Daily Mail reported.

The source noted that the Duke of Sussex has never been close to the Duchess of Cornwall, adding that if he decides to write about their fraught relationship in the book, it could be very damaging at a time when Prince Charles is preparing Camilla to become Queen.

Meanwhile, according to one royal insider, Harry's relationship with his brother Prince William might be beyond repair. The royal insider said there is nothing more that "can be said on that front." 

The insider noted that Prince William believes that Harry's behavior is "shameful and tasteless." The royal insider added how their relationship could be fixed when Harry has been going around to people, saying he cannot remember his childhood and his mother that much.

Some critics went to call for Harry's royal title to be removed in light of his plans to publish a memoir.

The Duke of Sussex's Side

In a statement, Prince Harry said he is writing the memoir not as the prince he was born but as the man he has become. The Duke of Sussex added that he is deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what he has learned through his life. 

He noted that he is excited for people to read a first-hand account of his life that is accurate and wholly truthful, BBC News reported.

Prince Harry has sealed the book deal with publishers Penguin Random House. Markus Dohle of Penguin Random House said the Duke of Sussex was among world-renowned leaders and icons they have been privileged to publish over the years.

The book will be ghostwritten by Pulitzer-winning journalist and writer J.R. Moehringer, who has already been working with Harry on the project for a year, Independent reported.

Meghan Markle released her first children's book last month. It was said to be inspired by the bond between Prince Harry and their son, Archie.
