“Oh my gosh, I think they’re shaking over this,” author Christopher Andersen told Fox News Digital. “I think they’ve done everything they’ve [could] persuade Harry not to publish this book… I just think if you look at what happened in [Queen Elizabeth II’s] funeral, I do not see repaired fences. I thought Harry looked very unhappy. Of course, his grandmother just died. But beyond that, there were no affectionate moments. No one was singing ‘Kumbaya’ in any way.”

Andersen has recently written a book about the 38-year-old’s father titled “The King: The Life of Carlos III”. He spoke to numerous members of the palace, as well as those who knew the queen’s eldest son or worked closely with the 74-year-old over the years.

According to Andersen, the king “still has affection” for his youngest son and is hopeful that he can bring the family back together.

“I’m sure you want to mend the gap between Harry and [his older brother Prince] William,” Andersen explained. “How [is he] Will you be able to do that with this book looming on the horizon with more revelations? … It has to be adversely impossible, I think.”

“I think Charles is between a rock and a hard place here,” he shared. “If Harry and Meghan [Markle] they will not work in royalty, then he wants to follow his mother’s saying. And it is that, if you are not full time, you are out. But in the same way, he needs all hands on deck… It’s going to be interesting to see what happens in the future.”

Andersen said he was surprised to hear that Harry was initially not allowed to wear his military uniform to the Queen’s vigil. After provoking a backlash, the palace announced that he would be allowed to wear his uniform to guard the queen’s coffin. He wore a suit to her funeral.

“[Prince] Edward was allowed to wear a uniform and never served in the military,” Andersen said.

“[Prince] Andrew, with all his problems, he was allowed to wear a uniform… but Harry wasn’t allowed… That initial establishment of the law by Charles or refusal to bend at first, I thought, was alarming. And indeed, if anyone deserves to wear a uniform in the royal family, it’s Harry. I mean, 10 years in the military and actually serving in combat in Afghanistan. He certainly earned it, right? And I think that hurt him. I think he was hurt by the kind of inattention that [he and his wife] arrived in London from the rest of the family and couldn’t wait to get back to the States”.

in his book

In his book “The King,” author Christopher Andersen alleged that King Charles was initially unaware that Meghan Markle was biracial.

According to Andersen’s book, Charles found Markle, a former American actress, “utterly charming, utterly charming.” Andersen alleged that Charles initially had no idea the former “Suits” star was biracial because she “beared a passing resemblance” to Kate Middleton’s sister Pippa. “Not that she would have mattered at all, of course,” he allegedly told an American friend. “But no, I didn’t realize that until much later.”

Harry married Markle, 41, in 2018. But in 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they would no longer be senior members of the British royal family. They moved to California and soon gave an explosive interview in 2021 with Oprah Winfrey.

The couple spoke of Markle’s deep unhappiness with her new life in England, alleged racism within the royal family and Harry’s fear that his wife’s life could be in danger if they remained in their native country. Harry also told Winfrey that his family cut him off financially and that he helped pay for his security with money left for him by his mother. They have launched numerous initiatives, including a Netflix production deal and the non-profit Archewell Foundation.

Penguin Random House’s announcement about “Spare” included a statement from Harry.

“I am writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become,” he said. “I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that by telling my story, the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned, I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think”.

The book had been tentatively scheduled for publication this year, and the delay sparked rumors that Harry was hesitant to say too much about his family, or perhaps was revising the narrative after his grandmother died in September. He has spoken of being estranged from his brother, though the brothers and their wives appeared together in public during the mourning period following the queen’s death.

Financial terms of the book were not disclosed. Nevertheless, Harry will donate proceeds from “Spare” to British charities.
