According to a royal expert, Prince Harry’s friends in the United Kingdom have questioned his decision to release a tell-all book and docuseries.
In a new interview, True Royalty TV editor-in-chief Nick Bullen stated that he hasn’t “heard much” about the memoir “Spare” and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Netflix docuseries. He claimed, however, that he has learned that some of the Duke of Sussex’s childhood friends are concerned about what he intends to reveal in the projects.
Bullen revealed the Sussexes’ upcoming projects to Us Weekly on Tuesday:
“I think it’s all a very closely guarded secret. We have a documentary [coming out] in December. We’ve got the book in January. And, you know, Netflix have paid a lot of money for this documentary. … So, Harry and Meghan are gonna have to say more than, ‘We have a lovely life in Montecito and we love each other.’ You know, there needs to be some meat in this sandwich.”
Bullen claimed that Prince Harry “has been talking to friends from his childhood” to “drudge up” his most impactful memories, including “some of his life’s darker moments,” for his projects.
The royal expert did not say which friends Prince Harry contacted, but he did say that his friends are concerned about “how far he’s going” with the book and docuseries.
“Now, whether that’s for the book or the documentary, I don’t know, but I know a lot of people have been saying to him, ‘Why are you going back over this old brand? Why are you digging all of this up again?’ So, I think those closest to him in the U.K. or those who were very close to him in the U.K. in the past are slightly concerned about how far he’s going. Now, whether he puts all of that in the book or the doc, I don’t know, but he’s certainly been doing a lot of early childhood research.”
According to the producer, the questions Prince Harry has been asking have raised many eyebrows.
Those close to senior members of the royal family, including King Charles and Prince Harry’s older brother Prince William, are “absolutely bracing themselves” for potential bombshells in the Sussexes’ highly anticipated projects “because nobody knows” what they will include, according to Bullen.
“History has shown us that when the Sussexes speak, they can throw out some pretty big accusations.”
Bullen’s claims could not be independently verified by International Business Times.
Prince Harry wrote his book with “raw, unflinching honesty,” according to publisher Penguin Random House, and discussed “some moments from his life publicly for the first time.”
The docuseries about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will reportedly premiere on Netflix on December 8.
