The machine is launched: the much anticipated memoirs of Prince Harry, entitled “The Substitute”, will be published on January 10, 2023. For the writing of this book, the Duke of Sussex would have asked the contribution of some of his relatives, as reported by the “Daily Mail”.
Lines that could well shake the walls of Buckingham Palace. The publication of the Substitute, memoirs of Prince Harry, was announced in July 2021 by the publishing house Penguin Random House. The author had not sought permission from anyone in the royal family. And if the mystery remains around the revelations brought by this book that will be released at the dawn of 2023, the Daily Mail reported that the Duke of Sussex would have “asked friends to contribute” to this book promising to be hot.
Chelsy Davy, Tom Inskip or Dean Stott could be part of the eleven intimates potentially interviewed by the father of Archie and Lilibet Diana. This one would thus have tended the microphone to friends of Eton College, where he made his secondary studies, to former girlfriends, as well as to comrades of the armed forces. But since moving with Meghan Markle to the United States in 2020, the second son of King Charles III has also made several close friendships in his new surroundings. Some of the latter would also have given their testimonies for these memoirs, like the actor and model Nacho Figueras, as our confreres have specified. However, most of the people contacted by the novelist J.R. Moehringer, who largely contributed to the writing of the text, would have politely declined the invitation.
That one member of the royal family who was notified
If the members of the British royal family were not warned of the release of Prince Harry‘s memoirs, the Duke of Sussex has nevertheless alerted someone dear to his heart about this bold project: Queen Elizabeth II. However, even the late sovereign could not consult the book, kept secret for all the “royals” before its publication. It should be noted that The Substitute should contain a short note stating that the book was written before the death of the monarch, last September 8 in Balmoral (Scotland).
