Harry doesn’t have to worry about the tabloids anymore… he’s become one

1 5 0

Further evidence this week that Prince Harry still hasn’t quite got a handle on this privacy thing. It has emerged that Harry has written a tell-all memoir (or rather someone else has written it for him) in which, according to the publisher, he will “offer an honest and captivating personal portrait”.

This from a man who fled to America, supposedly to escape such incursions into his privacy. But who has, in the months since, spilled his guts at every available paying opportunity about his life, his family and his enduring sense of palatial persecution.

At least Harry no longer needs to worry about the tabloids. He’s become one.

He’s now the prime vehicle delivering stories about his feud with his family — and not the media he so hates. He’s the one breaching his own privacy and that of close family members.

After Oprah, you’d think there wouldn’t be much left to tell. Not least since he and Meghan said that would be their last word on the subject.

But now, it appears, there’s a further 90,000 or so words Harry needs to get off his chest.

For this he is being paid, reportedly, $20m. A fair bit more than 30 pieces of silver, but from much the same exchequer.

The money, it’s claimed, will go to charity. Which one isn’t specified. Possibly the Royal Institute for the Protection of Trapped Princes.

Harry himself says he’s writing the book: “Not as the prince I was born, but as the man I’ve become.”........
