Prince Harry's memoir to focus on Princess Diana's death

Published: | Updated:

Prince Harry’s $20million memoir will focus on Princess Diana’s death and who he blames, a ‘well-informed source’ has reportedly told his biographer. 

Royal expert and author Angela Levin, who wrote Harry: Biography of a Prince, took to Twitter on Wednesday and penned: 'I've been told by a well-informed source that Harry's memoir will focus heavily on the death of his mother Princess Diana, and who he blames.

'It was a terrible tragedy, but sad the man can't move on.' 

Diana was with her companion Dodi al-Fayed and their driver Henri Paul when the car crashed in the Pont D'Alma tunnel on that fatal night in Paris, August 31, 1997. 

Prince Harry’s memoir will focus on Princess Diana’s death and who he blames, a ‘well-informed source’ has reportedly told a royal author.

It wasn't until seven years later that Sir John Stevens, the commissioner of the Metropolitan police, was asked to investigate several questions.

These included - was Diana pregnant at the time of her death? Did the blood sample attributed to Henri Paul actually come from him? And was there any valid justification for the elimination of a white Fiat Uno car from involvement in the collision?

The Duke of Sussex's $20million Megxit memoir has been branded a 'moneymaking exercise at the expense of his blood family' by royal experts and insiders who predicted it would be 'a book by Harry, as written by Meghan.'

Harry, 36, did not warn his grandmother, father or brother about the tell-all book until 'moments before it became public' in a sign that his relationship with the Royal Family did not improve during his visit to unveil Princess Diana's statue in London earlier this month, it was claimed on Tuesday.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William are said to have been completely blindsided by Harry's shock announcement that he has been secretly working on his as yet untitled memoirs with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer for a year, with a release date of late 2022, according to publisher Penguin Random House.

In a statement Harry said: 'I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become' - but one royal insider responded tartly: 'A book by Harry, as written by Meghan.'

Prince Harry didn't feel he needed permission from Buckingham Palace to write the memoir, his spokesman declared today.

The Sussexes' spokesman told the BBC that Harry would not be expected to obtain permission for the project from Buckingham Palace - but it is not yet clear if royal officials will get to see the finished book before its release in late 2022 by publisher Penguin Random House. MailOnline has asked Harry's LA team to comment.
