Prince Harry’s shameless autobiography is the most damaging chapter yet in his mission to bring down the Royal Family

His ghastly decision to proceed with the publication of his anticipated autobiography, which will criticize the monarchy and his family, just four months after the passing of Queen Elizabeth the Great and four months before his father King Charles’ historic coronation, can, sadly, lead to no other conclusion.

The tenuous cease-fire between the new royal authority and the Montecito whiners lasted just two months, and it was predicted that the Duke of Sussex would seek vengeance on those who had wronged him in the past.

Since it was announced about 15 months ago, senior royals and courtiers have lived in constant fear of this ticking time bomb, but they had hoped that the way Harry and Meghan were welcomed back into the Windsor bosom in the days leading up to the Queen’s funeral would allow for a last-minute U-turn.

Not to mention the possibility that King Charles might decide not to bestow royal titles on Harry and Meghan’s children if they continue to aim for irreparable harm.

Any doubtful hopes of a sincere reconciliation, however, have been destroyed by the all-American marketing blitz surrounding today’s news that the Me Me Me memoir will be titled Spare — a knowing allusion to his constitutional position as Prince William’s backup.

There is now little doubt that Harry wants to go all out, getting even with the father who supported his opulent lifestyle for years as he starts the job he has waited his entire life, and doing so while also starting the work.

Harry and Meghan launched grenades at Charles, Kate, and the monarchy during the now-famous two-hour Oprah Winfrey interview, accusing a “royal racist” of making racial remarks about the couple’s unborn child.

Imagine the harm that may be done in a 416-page autobiography that is destined to become an international publishing sensation with such a vendetta at play.

Given that their personal ties with Harry have soured in recent years, both the Queen Consort Camilla and the heir to the monarchy Prince William are anticipating major arrivals.

En La Sombra, or “in the shadow,” is the subtitle assigned to the book’s Spanish translation. It makes a clear allusion to how Harry feels the Royal Family treated him.

His story will be centered on the day in 1997 when he was made to walk behind his mother’s coffin in full view of the public.

As a result of this choice, he has grown to dislike the institution into which he was born, despite the fact that it has allowed him to live a life of unimaginable privilege. This is made clear in the press release announcing the book’s title.

“Spare transports readers instantly back to one of the most heartbreaking sights of the twentieth century: two little boys, two princes, marching behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in anguish — and terror,” the publisher Penguin Random House notes.

“Billions pondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling as Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest and how their lives would proceed after that.

For Harry, this is finally his narrative. Spare is a seminal work of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the enduring power of love over sadness with its raw, unflinching honesty.

As usual, Harry is being quite astute by exploiting his sorrow over the passing of his mother, Princess Diana, as a bulwark against criticism over the true implications of the book.

But what about the sorrow his father is currently going through following the death of his mother?

How cruel do you have to be to add more pressure on the man’s already stressful situation as he struggles to accept his new kingship and prepare for his coronation?

I’m sure I’m not the only one who finds Harry’s apparent satisfaction in the commercialization of his grief for Diana to be unsettling.

Perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised considering that he is content to earn millions of dollars as a Netflix employee, despite the fact that the streaming giant is now reenacting Diana’s fatal Paris car accident and the funeral procession that followed, which left young Harry traumatized.

The fact that Harry is unable to set aside his personal differences in order to support his father in his efforts to safeguard the monarchy at a time when the institution itself faces significant uncertainty due to the UK’s unprecedented levels of political unrest and social unrest is indescribably.

But I think that King Charles and his courtiers have reason to be worried about the potential consequences of his son’s poisoned pen.

Or, to be more precise, the ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer, whose pen “is recognized for probing the difficulties inherent in father-son relationships,” according to the New York Times.

Harry’s media-hatred-filled merry-go-round has a business reason for doing it.

In his most recent book Courtiers, royal author Valentine Low reported that the Duke believes his time as a well-known public figure would end when his nephew Prince George turns 18.

Harry now has nine years to earn the hundreds of millions of dollars he believes are necessary to live a life of unrestrained indulgence without ever having to approach his father or brother for financial assistance.

The Sussexes have demonstrated that they are willing to sell their lives for the Hollywood gold with Meghan’s weekly claims of victimhood on her Spotify podcast and the couple’s upcoming Kardashian-style reality series coming in December because Netflix wants it to air as a companion piece to The Crown.

They are also aware that in order to earn large money—Harry is rumored to have received a £18.4 million advance for this book alone—they must provide juicy details.

However, if the tissue of lies interview with Oprah is any indication, I myself would anticipate requests for Spare to be categorized as a work of fiction within days of its publication.

The harm will have been done by then.

The Royal Family, who are still in the dark about the book’s contents and must endure a torturous wait until release day on January 10, are going to have a very unpleasant Christmas.

How unfortunate that Harry will stop at nothing to publicize his version of the truth, regardless of what it means for his father, brother, the legacy of his grandmother, or even the future of the monarchy.
