“Harry has always been in such a rush to make an ‘impact,’ because he thinks he has a limited shelf life before the public want to hear more from George and his siblings,” one friend told the outlet.
“He worries that after that, he’ll turn into his uncle,” the friend continued, referring to Prince Andrew, who stepped down from royal duties in 2019 after his relationship with late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein was discovered.
During an interview with royal expert Roya Nikkhah, Harry told her he planned to use his “privileged position” for “good stuff” for “as long as I can, or until I become boring, or until [Prince] George ends up becoming more interesting,” she wrote.
“There’s nothing worse than going through a period in your life where you’re making a massive difference and then suddenly … you drop off,” he said when he was 31 years old. “You want to make a difference but no one’s listening to you."
Now, the royal family is bracing for the worst, as they are unsure what Harry will reveal.
"They have gone rogue. It is a fact. It’s incredibly worrying because they are so totally unpredictable. Anything is possible," royal writer Richard Fitzwilliams claimed, adding that the announcement has "complicated matters" for the family and "that in itself is a very worrying development."
Meanwhile, one former aide predicted that Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, won't think twice about the damage they may have caused.
They said the couple will “sail into the sunset … convinced they did the right thing by speaking ‘their truth.’”
After the book drops, the ex-aide hopes "everyone shuts the f**k up."
