Prince Harry warned he could end up 're-paying Prince Charles' a 'substantial sum' he gave him to start a new life in LA if the tell-all book reveals too much about the royals, expert claims.
- Prince Harry has been warned he might have to 'repay Prince Charles' the 'substantial sum' he gave him to start a new life in LA.
- The Duke is releasing a tell-all memoir which is expected to reveal more 'truths' on the royal family and about his upbringing.
- This royal news (opens in new tab) comes as it's reported Prince Harry ‘didn’t warn’ Prince Charles about $20m book deal that will reveal ‘highs and lows’ of his life (opens in new tab).
Prince Harry received a stark warning from a royal expert that he might have to repay Prince Charles the 'substantial sum' his father gave him to start a new life living in LA (opens in new tab).
When the Duke stepped down as senior royals (opens in new tab), he and Meghan were stripped of their official titles (opens in new tab) but in order to give his son a chance at setting up a new life for himself and his wife in America, Prince Charles reportedly gave Harry some funds from his Duchy estate.
Earlier this year Clarence House confirmed Harry and Meghan received a "substantial sum" from Charles until last summer. And it is claimed that this cash was used to purchase a new home in Santa Barbara and he used the cash he inherited from his mother to pay for security to protect his family - wife Meghan, son Archie (opens in new tab), two, and daughter Lilibet Diana, aged one month when he was cut off financially.
But since news of the bombshell book, which is expected to be released in late 2022, Royal author and expert Robert Jobson took to Twitter to blast the Duke of Sussex for selling rights to his autobiography for a reported $20m - of which the whole sum is expected to be donated to charity.
He tweeted, 'Talk of a $20million advance for Prince Harry’s memoir (with profits going to charity). Will the prince refund his dad the money he gave him to set himself up in America before trashing him in his book I wonder?'
Prince Harry has already spoken about his relationship with his father Prince Charles since he quit the UK, admitting his father had 'stopped taking his calls (opens in new tab)'. And claimed "my family literally cut me off financially" in "the first quarter of 2020" - which relates to the first quarter of the financial year (April to June) and not the calendar year (January to March).
Despite reportedly upsetting the Queen (opens in new tab) with his comments on Prince Charles' parenting, Prince Harry is expected to go into details about his upbringing as a prince and it could leave several members of the royal family in fear of what he might say.
In a statement about the book, Harry teased, 'I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story - the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned - I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.'
He added, ‘I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.’
It comes after Prince Harry wrote a 'deeply personal' letter to Charles before attending Prince Philip's funeral.
Meanwhile, Penguin Random House revealed the book would cover Harry's childhood, his military service including time on the frontlines in Afghanistan, and his life as a husband and father.
