The Royal Family Pretends Everything Is OK with the Announcement of Prince Harry's Memoir
Prince Harry's big announcement on Monday that he would publish his memoirs in 2022 had to shake up the royal family a little. Yes, we know he allegedly spoke privately with his family about the matter before the public found out, but they still must be a little nervous about what he is about to reveal. Well we finally have a reaction from Buckingham Palace which is comment without comment that everything is fine, nothing to see here.
Since the Duke of Sussex is no longer a working member of the royal family, he can do whatever he wants professionally and privately. There are no more rules for him, and he doesn't need to get permission from Queen Elizabeth either, but out of courtesy to his family, according to People, he let them know about the secret. And at this point a palace representative was very careful with the news: "Any clarification of the book would be a question for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex."

But the palace appears to be washing its hands and reminding everyone that Prince Harry is answering for themselves - they don't want to interfere at this point. It seems like a new approach that each of the high-ranking royals are using - Kate Middleton and Prince William are going on a "charm offensive" to win over the public, and the monarchy no longer feeds into the headline frenzy . Will this strategy work or will it backfire as more US media news leaks through? It will be interesting to see how it all plays out because at the moment everything is fine at Buckingham Palace.
