Stuck between a rock and a hard place. Though Prince Harry is set to release his first memoir later this year, an insider claims he's now "worried sick" that the contents of his book "will lead to a new war with the royals."
His anxiety over the tome is causing a headache for publishers. "Every passage is being revised again and again," he shared. "Harry keeps remembering new things he wants to include, and then suddenly panics about toning down certain anecdotes."
Meanwhile, wife Meghan Markle, 40, is pushing him to soldier through and "urging him to tell his truth and not hide what really happened."
"It’s done and out of Harry’s hands," added the insider. "The publishing date has been pushed back once but it is on track for the end of the year."
Originally, the book was scheduled to release this fall, but it seems Harry's hesitation about what to include could be the culprit of the delay.
"If this book’s coming out this year as originally planned it should be in the publisher’s marketing and promotional list — unless they’re planning a surprise or there’s been a delay," said a source. "Its omission has raised lots of eyebrows in royal circles."
Harry first shared details of his book in July 2021.
"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," he announced. "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 firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."
Heat was the first to report on Harry's worries.
