Queen Elizabeth ‘seeks legal advice’ over Harry's memoir
It’s been reported Queen Elizabeth has sought legal advice to prepare for more “hurtful attacks” from Prince Harry - and Meghan Markle - when Prince Harry's new memoir is released next year because the feeling at the palace is “enough is enough.”
A source has told The Sun: "The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough. There is a limit to how much will be accepted and the Queen and Royal Family can only be pushed so far."
The source says Harry and Meghan will be "made aware and know repeated attacks will not be tolerated".
Libel and privacy experts have reportedly been consulted by the royal legal team and the clock is ticking following confirmation Harry, 36, is working on a tell-all memoir which he promises will be an "accurate and wholly truthful" account of his time as a royal.
The memoir is due out in 2022 and will be published by Penguin Random House. It’s understood the royal legal team plans to contact the publishers to request an advance copy so they have a right to reply.
Some damaging comments have already been made
Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle resigned as senior working members of the British royal family, they’ve made a number of comments which have been considered damaging to the monarchy.
They have now relocated to the US where they operate under the brand Archewell and reside in a lavish home in Montecito, California, with Archie, two years, and daughter Lilibet, two months.
During the couple's interview with Oprah Winfrey in early 2021, the pair spoke of Meghan's mental health struggles with the duchess claiming her request for private treatment was rejected.
They also claimed racist comments were made by a senior royal regarding the colour of son Archie's skin before his birth but refused to name the royal. Winfrey later stated the culprit wasn't the Queen or Prince Philip.
During a podcast interview with Dax Sheppard on Armchair Expert, Harry spoke out about his upbringing, saying his father Prince Charles had treated him the way in the same way he had been treated as a child.
"It's a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway," Harry said
