A royal biographer has said Prince Harry is “insisting” that his candid memoir be published in November despite the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
The Duke of Sussex’s book was expected to hit store shelves at the end of November. However, questions were raised whether the release date would be pushed back after his grandmother’s death.
British writer Tom Bauer appeared on GB News. Dan Wootton tonightavailable for streaming FlashHarry is urging full details to be released later this year, sources said.
“I was told tonight that Harry is pushing for his book to be published in November, which is amazing,” he told the program.
“Apparently the publishers aren’t too sure, but he says if they don’t publish it’s a breach of contract, that’s what I’m told. It’s extraordinary.
“On the other hand, it fits the bill because Harry and Meghan are completely dependent on the book and on Netflix for their finances.
“And also I think they’re convinced they’re right and they want to get it back.”

The news came when Harry paid his respects to the Queen and gave his father King Charles III an olive branch.
In a statement posted on the website, ArchwellThe Duke said: “Celebrating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty the Queen – and mourning her loss – reminds us of the guiding compass she was to many in her commitment to service and duty.
“She was admired and respected all over the world. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life, and now her enduring legacy.
“Let’s repeat the words she spoke after the death of her husband, Prince Philip, words that can console us all now: “Life, of course, consists of the last partings, as well as the first meetings.”
“Grandma, despite the fact that this last parting brings us great sadness, I am infinitely grateful for all our first meetings – from my earliest childhood memories with you, to meeting you for the first time as my Commander-in-Chief, to the first moment you met my beloved wife and hugged my beloved great-grandchildren.
“I cherish these moments with you and the many other special moments in between. You are already greatly missed not only by us, but by the whole world. And as for the first meetings, we are now honoring my father in his new role as King Charles III.
“Thank you for your commitment to service. Thanks for your good advice. Thank you for your infectious smile.
“We smile too, knowing that you and Grandpa are now reunited, both together in peace.”
Harry announced last year that he was writing a candid book about his life.
In a statement, the prince said he was delighted to share an account of his life that is “accurate and completely truthful.”
“I am writing this not as the prince I was born to be, but as the person I have become,” he said.
“I have worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and I hope that by telling my story – ups and downs, mistakes, lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from Come on, we have more in common than we think.
“I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned in my life and I am glad that people are reading a first hand account of my life that is accurate and completely true.”
