The Queen could face fresh ‘heartache’ as royal commentators predict that Meghan’s royal diary could become a bombshell memoir about her life in The Firm.

More bad news could be in store for the Queen after Meghan Markle revealed in an interview that she kept a royal journal, which could now be turned into a second memoir.

The Firm is already awaiting the release of Prince Harry’s ‘wholly truthful’ memoir which is thought to contain ‘truth bombs’ that could ‘shake the monarchy to its core'. As it stands, the book is facing delays over its contents and is predicted to hit shelves in 2023.

Now fresh ‘heartache’ is predicted for the Queen after Meghan told the Cut that she kept a diary before she and Harry stepped back as senior royals.

The Duchess of Sussex explained that when the couple returned to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, they visited their former home of Frogmore Cottage. It was here that Meghan found her old journal which she had written in every day before they left for their new home in LA

She said, “You go back and you open drawers and you're like, Oh my gosh. This is what I was writing in my journal there.” 

This discovery has prompted fears that she could use the diary material to publish another memoir.

Margaret Holder, royal author of 'Diana: The Caring Princess' told the Mail Online, “She had enough time in the royal fold to learn secrets, some decades old, which could cause embarrassment and heartache for the Queen and her family, but could earn a fortune for Meghan.”

Meanwhile, an insider close to Harry and Meghan reportedly told the Sun, "I’d be very surprised if Meghan wasn’t writing a book."

So far, there has been no official confirmation over a second memoir, though Meghan could be set to make more revelations in her new podcast 'Archetypes'.
