Royal biographer and author Angela Levin said that the Duchess of Sussex is helping the Duke write his memoir, which was meant to be published in October but has reportedly been delayed. Asked to comment on the upcoming memoir, Ms Levin claimed that if Prince Harry does not publish it, his wife will be furious at him, since she is helping him throughout the process. Ms Levin claimed to GB News: “It seems they were to launch it in October. He had a very well-known ghostwriter for it because obviously, he can’t do it – it is not a skill he has. But I think he is very worried, he is in the middle of two very different positions.”Prince Harry Meghan Markle
She added: “One is, if it does come out and it slags off his parents and the Queen and the Royal Family in the UK again, I think he is going to be in trouble because we have all heard more than enough about what a terrible time he has – which is not always true. But if he doesn’t write it, Meghan will be furious because she has been helping him write it, not a surprise there. And he risks with his family. They need the family to earn money commercially, which they said when they never do in 2020. It is a difficult spot for him to be in. He might take out some of the really nasty bits. That’s what I think he will do in the end.”

Picture of Kate Middleton, Prince George and Princess CharlottePRINCE HARRY and Meghan Markle were all smiles when they arrived for a royal engagement in South Africa in 2019, and onlookers would never have suspected when they got their first glimpse of the Sussexes that they had suffered a huge shock just hours before when a fire broke out in their son Archie’s room.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle embarked on a royal tour of South Africa in September 2019 and they were joined by their baby son Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, who was four months old at the time.
On their first day in South Africa, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex smiled and waved to crowds upon arrival at the District Six Museum in Cape Town, where they learned about the impact relocation had on thousands of people under Apartheid and spoke to people who had lived through it.
While everything about Harry and Meghan’s engagement appeared fine on the surface based on pictures from the event, Meghan recently revealed on her Spotify podcast ‘Archetypes’ that the pair were incredibly shaken as just before they had stepped out, a fire had broken out in the room their son was supposed to be sleeping in.

While many remember Kate Middleton’s incredible dress as she arrived for her royal wedding in 2011, some may be surprised to know that Kate made an appearance in a second dress later that day.
For a royal wedding that was watched by millions of people around the world, Kate Middleton decided to showcase the talent of the British fashion industry with both of her wedding dress designs.
READ MOREKate Middleton's second wedding dress was completely different to her firstPrince Harry has come under fire after it was reported the Duke of Sussex travelled to his charity polo tournament via private jet.
The Duke of Sussex appears to be “at odds with his message”, climate campaigner Anna Hughes said after it was reported Prince Harry boarded a £7.67million Bombardier Challenger 600 to fly from California to Aspen, Colorado, for his charity polo tournament despite having often spoken with concern about climate change.
Ms Hughes, director of Flight Free UK, told the Daily Mail: “He has so much potential to do good but he keeps taking private jets. It seems to be at odds with his message.”
The campaigner hasn’t been the only one to criticise the Duke for this choice, in particular after it was claimed his Colorado-bound private jet, to which he had travelled using an electric car, remained idling on the tarmac for a few minutes while waiting for his staff to bring him his polo kit in a separate car.
Among the critics, GB News host Dan Wootton wrote on Twitter: “Prince Harry arrived for a flight on a private jet for a one-day polo match – before the aircraft sat idling on the tarmac for at least 30 minutes as it waited for his staff to arrive in a gas-guzzling SUV to drop off his polo kit. Ignore his preaching!”
Similarly, during a panel discussing the issue, Talk TV host James Max said: “What I really disagree with is this kind of double standard which is if you are going to preach us about the environment, you are in a privileged position, perhaps you can get us to change our ways, you’ve got to lead by example.” In September 2019, after Harry and Meghan Markle had been criticised for making four private jet trips within 11 days, the Duke said he mostly travels using commercial flights.
However, he added: “Occasionally there needs to be an opportunity based on a unique circumstance to ensure that my family are safe – it’s generally as simple as that.”Ignore preaching! Harry backlash over £7m gaffe and 'double standards'MEGHAN MARKLE’s decision to speak of an incident which took place during the first day of hers and Prince Harry’s last royal tour has angered some South Africans online.
The Duchess of Sussex mentioned in the first episode of her podcast series Archetypes that her son Archie Harrison risked being involved in a fire just hours after the family of three had landed in South Africa.
Speaking to her friend and tennis star Serena Williams, Meghan said there had been an incident sparked by a heater placed in the nursery where her then four-month-old son was meant to be napping while his parents were undertaking engagements.
READ MOREMeghan Markle told to 'never set foot here again' Her Majesty faced one of the “worst days of her reign” when she lost her second cousin, Lord Louis Mountbatten, in a fatal attack carried out by the Irish Republican Army (IRA), according to a royal commentator.
The Queen was informed of the death of Lord Mountbatten about an hour after a radio-controlled bomb planted by an IRA member exploded on the boat he was using.
Wesley Kerr OBE, royal commentator and historian, said the incident would have “affected the Queen very profoundly” and described the monarch as having “grief etched on her face”.
During the 2021 Channel 5 documentary ‘The Murder of Lord Mountbatten: 3 Days that Shook Britain’, Mr Kerr said: “To lose this beloved family member in such a horrific way, I think this must have affected the Queen very profoundly.
“This must have been one of the worst days of the Queen’s reign.”
He continued: “To have that grief served up in front of everybody… must have been difficult.”

Jeremy Clarkson has criticised Meghan Markle for wanting to take a break from her royal duties after discovering a fire had broken out in Archie’s nursery during the Sussexes’ tour in 2019.
The Duchess of Sussex opened up on the major scare during the first episode of her podcast series titled Archetypes.
However, Mr Clarkson hit out at Meghan after she seemingly criticised the Palace for wanting her and Prince Harry to carry on with engagements after it became clear Archie had not been harmed.
The Grand Tour presenter wrote in The Sun: “She says that the child was not in the room where the very small fire happened but that she should have been allowed some time off because we should worry less about how we look than how we feel.”
The TV host went on to recall a personal tragedy which he compared to Meghan’s anecdote.
He penned: “A few years ago I was in Moscow when I received news in the middle of the night that my mum had died.”
Despite receiving the tragic news, Mr Clarkson said he carried on with his work commitments.
He added: “And the next morning, I was on stage, trying my best to entertain the audience at a Top Gear Live event. It hurt. It really did. But I did it.
“Because that’s what we are expected to do. Not Let People Down.”

While in Colorado for the charity polo tournament raising funds and awareness for his organisation Sentebale, the Duke of Sussex voiced his impossible wish for his children Archie and Lilibet.
Delivering a speech in which he mentioned the upcoming anniversary of the death of Princess Diana, Harry said: “Next week is the 25th anniversary of my mother’s death, and she most certainly will never be forgotten.
“I want it to be a day filled with memories of her incredible work and love for the way that she did it.
“I want it to be a day to share the spirit of my mum with my family, with my children, whom I wish could have met her.”
Read the full story herePrincess Diana and Prince HarryTudor expert Sylvia Barbara Soberton said she was “shocked” during her research as she debunked some of the popular misconceptions about the former Queen’s ladies in waiting that have been repeated for centuries.
Some historians have stated that one of Anne’s maids of honour, Anne Gainsford, was an informant, who was spying on the Queen, but this is false, according to Ms Soberton.
Speaking to Express.co.uk about this myth, she said: “Many myths are still perpetuated about the women who served her.
“Because for example, we have this myth that is part of the narrative of Anne’s rise and fall.
“That one of her maids of honour, Anne Gainsford was an informant of George Wyatt.
“Wyatt wrote the first ever biography of Anne in 1606 and his Nineteenth Century editor identified one of the two women who were his informants as Anne Gainsford.”
However, the historian noted Ms Gainsford died five years before Mr Wyatt was even born.
She added: “It is quite shocking that it is repeated as a fact, and nobody really checks these things.”

The first episode of Meghan Markle’s podcast, Archetypes, has been described as the “opening salvo” in the Duchess of Sussex’s “12-week war” by a royal expert.
Speaking about the first episode of Archetypes, released on Tuesday, royal author Duncan Larcombe told the Daily Beast: “This was the opening salvo in Meghan’s 12-week war.
“It has the potential to be even more damaging than the Oprah interview because it is Meghan, in her own words, on her own show, doing exactly what she wants, and the fact is she took the first opportunity to plunge the knife in.
“This will have come as a great relief to the executives on the other side of the glass at Spotify, who paid millions of dollars for her.
“It’s a huge hit, of course, but the fact that she was interviewing Serena Williams is almost completely irrelevant to the listening figures.
“Meghan has star power and this was all about Meghan being Meghan.”
In the episode, during which she discussed with tennis star Serena Williams how the word ambitious can get a negative connotation when linked to women, appeared to take a dig at the Palace after suggesting she had to carry on with engagements during the first day of her and Prince Harry’s tour to South Africa in 2019 even after a heater in the nursery of their son Archie Harrison caught fire.
Read the full story hereMeghan Markle wearing headphonesThe Duke of York, who reportedly held “intense talks” with the Queen in a bid to try to establish “a route back” to royal life with a new position, has been branded the Royal Family’s “square peg” by a royal author.
Nigel Cawthorne, author of Prince Andrew: Maxwell, Epstein and the Palace, told Express.co.uk: “The question is, who wants him back?
“Does any charity want him as a patron? Or any regiment want him as their colonel?
“Would any country welcome a royal tour if Prince Andrew was on his way?
“Would any new supermarket want him cutting the ribbon at the opening?
“What town wants him to switch on the Christmas lights?
“Is anyone gagging for him to unveil a plaque or plant a tree, visit a school?
“Given the fact that it was a three-day summit, it is clear that even the palace and the Queen realise that Prince Andrew can never return to the royal frontline.
“He is the royal’s square peg and it is difficult to sanction anything he can do apart from retire given the fact that any new career will have a public angle and tarnish the Firm afresh with tawdry stories connected to the Prince.”
Read the full story herePrince Andrew standing next to the QueenPrince Harry is “looking to position himself as the rebel royal” through his highly-anticipated new memoir, according to a royal branding expert.
The Duke of Sussex announced in July last year he was penning an “intimate” memoir, expected to be released in late 2022.
Speaking about the book, Professor Pauline MacLaran, of Royal Holloway, University of London, described how Prince Harry’s upcoming publication would likely fit into the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s “David versus Goliath” narratives.
She told Express.co.uk: “I think Prince Harry will be looking to position himself as the rebel royal – a rebel with a cause as it were.
“Rebel brands challenge the mainstream – in this case the traditional strictures placed on members of the Royal Family – and gain support from their ‘David versus Goliath’ narratives.
“So Harry is likely to suggest he is a victim of the (royal) system and now he is fighting for his freedom, etc.
“This type of approach will sit comfortably with Meghan’s podcast series that also has rebel connotations.”

The Prince of Wales has been making regular morning visits to the Queen at Balmoral Castle, it has been claimed.
While these visits could be seen as normal given both Her Majesty and Prince Charles are currently spending time in Scotland, one royal expert said they are “highly unusual” for the royals.
Royal author Ingrid Seward told The Sun: “It’s highly unusual for Prince Charles to make these kinds of impromptu visits to see his mother.
“But Charles is a very thoughtful person — and who else can she rely on now Prince Philip has gone?
“Everyone thinks they normally see each other all the time, but they don’t.
“They often blame it on the geography because everyone is scattered all around the country.”
This fuels concerns for the monarch’s health, as the 96-year-old has been experiencing episodic mobility issues since the autumn.
Read the full story hereThe Queen sitting next to Prince CharlesMeghan Markle has become one of the least trusted Royal Family members among Britons, a new poll has suggested, as those surveyed placed her at the bottom of the charts alongside Prince Harry and Prince Andrew.
The Duchess of Sussex was named among the three least trusted members of the Royal Family among the 10 taken into account for a survey commissioned by the Daily Express to polling firm Techne.
Asking 1,630 Britons whether they trusted the 10 most high-profile Royal Family members, respondents placed Meghan second to last on the list, with only 12 percent stating she was a trustworthy person.
76 percent, 1,238 people, said they did not trust the Duchess, while another 12 percent couldn’t decide.
Only Prince Andrew performed worse than the Duchess in this poll, with 2 percent of those polled saying they trusted him against 89 percent, 1,450 people, saying they don’t.
Prince Harry came in third last, performing better than his wife Meghan with 30 percent of those polled saying they trust him against 59 percent of the people surveyed saying they don’t.

Prince Harry has been criticised after it was reported he flew from California to Aspen, Colorado, using a private jet.
The Duke of Sussex, who has often voiced his concerns regarding climate change and works with organisations focused on the environment and conservation, reportedly made the 90-minute trip on a £7.67million Bombardier Challenger 600, after arriving at the airport in an electric car.
But prior to leaving California, the jet reportedly had to remain idle on the tarmac for a few minutes while the Duke was waiting for his polo kit to arrive in a separate SUV.
Anna Hughes, a climate campaigner and director at Flight Free UK, told the Daily Mail: “Harry talks a lot about the environment, yet actions need to follow words and this example shows he doesn’t.
“We want people in the public eye to be demonstrating low-carbon behaviour especially when they talk about it – and Harry says he’s only having two children for the sake of the planet.
“He has so much potential to do good but he keeps taking private jets.
“It seems to be at odds with his message.”
GB News host Dan Wootton also wrote on Twitter: “Prince Harry arrived for a flight on a private jet for a one-day polo match – before the aircraft sat idling on the tarmac for at least 30 minutes as it waited for his staff to arrive in a gas-guzzling SUV to drop off his polo kit.
