Prince Harry's upcoming book is already anticipated to wreak havoc between him and his family. The said memoir is expected to heighten the tension between the Sussexes and the Royal Family as his revelations concerning royal life could lead to more negative publicity.
Cosmopolitan reported in July 2022 that the Duke of Sussex, Prince Harry's memoir, would be released during the holidays.
Via The Sun, the book is set to be released in November/December. According to a publishing source, the memoir is already done.

"The manuscript has been finished and gone through all of the legal processes. It's done and out of Harry's hands. The publishing date has been pushed back once, but it is on track for the end of the year," said a source.
Moreover, there is concern from the head of the Royal Family, Prince Charles, who believes his son might aim at his stepmother, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, revealed an insider:
"Anyone who is anyone is saying it's going to attack Camilla. Charles has shared his concerns with William and is keen he somehow goes on the record and sticks up for Camilla should the book attack her."
Meanwhile, another source revealed that the Duke of Sussex might touch on the past royal life he had not spoken about before.
The insider told Page Six that some of the topics include the Duke's childhood and that "there is content in there that should make his family nervous."
EXPERTS FOREWARN REGARDING THE MEMOIR
In addition, the prince's former biographer, Angela Levin, revealed to the talk show "Palace Confidential" that publishers Penguin Random House gave the royal a multi-million-pound advance. It means they ensured they would get their money's worth with his upcoming biography.
Levin said Prince Harry was "bitter and resentful" and that he would say anything he felt after seeing the things that he went through all his life was "dreadful."
She added that he had something to prove to his older brother, Prince William. Levin explained that the Duke of Sussex was tired of being "a spare" instead of an heir:
"I think he's got a lot of poison in his blood now about what he feels about his background and his family."
Levin's fellow panelist and royal writer Robert Jobson echoed the same sentiments, saying that the aftermath of the autobiography would likely cause a significant impact in the UK.
Jobson said the revelations in the book are likely to be damaging, particularly regarding the Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton saga, about "who made who cry."

The veteran stated that if the said details were to be addressed in the memoir, they would create a negative narrative between the Sussexes and the Royal Family:
"I'm sure those things – if they are addressed at all – will cause major problems."
TOM BOWER'S BOOK COULD ALSO 'WIDEN THE RIFT'

In addition to the royal rift, royal commentator, Jonathan Sacerdoti, told Royally Us that a book written by biographer Tom Bower could be "very damaging" to Prince Harry and Markle, including the Royal Family:
"I don't think Tom Bower is going to be [sympathetic]. I think this book is going to be far more explosive."
Sacerdoti said if the book entails royal secrets from reliable sources, then it is undoubtedly bound to cause irreparable damage between the Royal Family and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex:
"I think it is just going to widen that rift. But, again, when I say that it will be damaging to Harry and Meghan, it might actually not be damaging."
Sacerdoti explained that because the royal couple was not actively involved in the book, they might like the outcome because the revelations might still give them media coverage. However, it may lead to lawsuits, something the royal author is used to as he has previously written unauthorized books about well-known public figures.
Bower's biography is titled "Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors." It entails several claims about the Duchess of Sussex and Camilla.
In the book, Bower alleged that the future Queen Consort jokingly remarked about Markle's then unborn child's future hairstyle, saying it would be "funny" if the unborn had "ginger Afro hair."
However, per the Daily Mail, royal sources have since rubbished those claims, saying, "this suggestion is nonsense." Clarence House has reportedly not commented on the allegations.
When Bower appeared on "Good Morning Britain" to promote his book, he alleged that Markle only married Prince Harry for fame, adding that her US legal drama "' Suits,’ wasn’t that popular."
"It’s wrong to say she was a famous actress, she wasn’t, she was a third-rate actress, ‘Suits,’ was only watched by a million people."
The author also insinuated that the American native believed that marrying into the monarchy would be like Hollywood and that once she realized that the Royal Family was "lots of work and little reward," she lost interest.
Bower also mentioned that Markle had previously told her father that she wanted to be famous and that marrying the prince ticked off the list for her.
In the autobiography, the former BBC journalist claimed that in 2016, the Duchess received an invitation from World Vision Canada to feature in a film and promote the charity's work building water wells in Rwanda.
Bower said the royal "brought suitcases of clothes" and "insisted" that she tag along with fashion photographer Gabor Jurina. She also allegedly took a hair and makeup artist along with her, and a Canadian camera joined in place of producer Brenda Surminski.
Bower claimed that when Markle finished filming with the kids playing with a water tap, she "disappeared" with Jurina to take photos with some of the children.
"Celebrities using a desolate African village as the backdrop for a fashion shoot was mind-blowing," the British native wrote in the book," saying Surminski was stunned by Markle's tactics.
Moreover, Bower admitted that most of his sources, 80 of them, include people who dislike the Duchess of Sussex.
