Queen Elizabeth CANCELS Harry Over Tell-All Memoir

 Prince Harry was facing anger from the royal households last night as his tell-all book threatens to take the shine off the Queen's historic Platinum Jubilee.

The duke's decision to bring out a memoir, which could deepen current rifts, in the same year his grandmother celebrates her landmark was branded 'deeply disrespectful'.

Royal sources told the Mail that inside Buckingham Palace and the other royal households, there was an increasing sense of anger and frustration – not just because he had chosen to write such a book, but also over the 'clearly deliberate' timing of its publication next autumn.

It could be 'the last straw' for Harry and his family, with relations already at breaking point, insiders said.

Prince Harry promises readers an 'accurate and wholly truthful' book written 'not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become'

Harry said the memoir, to be published by Penguin Random House, will be written 'not as the prince' he was, but as the man he has 'become'.

He said, 'I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

'I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story - the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned - I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.

'I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I've learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first hand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful.'

Having already been writing for a year, the prince is set to turn in a manuscript, which he promised will be a 'first-hand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful', by the end of this year. It is set to hit the shelves in 2022.

The Royal Family are fully focused on making the year a joyous occasion, when the Queen will become the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years on the throne, but now fear Harry, and any bombshell revelations, will overshadow it.

Some insiders were last night even predicting that the Queen's invitation for Harry, Meghan and their children to join the Royal Family on the balcony at Buckingham Palace to mark her milestone next June could be rescinded.

One said: 'Her Majesty has been at great pains to try to keep her relationship with her grandson and his family separate from the decisions she needs to make professionally, so to speak. And the invitation for them to join her next year was a genuine one.

'Although things have been very difficult, there was a small, but enduring hope that enough time would have elapsed for things to heal. But the feeling internally [now] is that this book will be the last straw.

'It's emerged that Harry has been secretly working on it for some time and he has made clear that he and his ghostwriter (journalist and novelist J R Moehringer) will leave no stone unturned.

'The suggestion he could even be seen with his family again in the future is looking increasingly implausible. A lot of people suspect this is the end of the road.'

The timing of the book is being seen as yet another snub to the royals after the Sussexes' explosive Oprah interview was filmed and broadcast while Prince Philip lay ill in hospital earlier this year.

Another source added: 'To bring out the book in the year of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee is being seen as deeply disrespectful. There will be a whole year of celebrations... yet it will now be characterised by a drip-feed of revelations, serialisations and, eventually, publication.

'It doesn't matter what reassurances he tries to give his family about what will be in it. The Oprah interview proved how hollow those words can be.'

Having left the UK for California last year, the Sussexes have signed commercial deals thought to be worth millions with the likes of Netflix and Spotify, while Harry has taken on several roles with private companies.
