Prince Harry ‘to be sidelined for Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations after book controversy’

Could the book do more damage than good?

Prince Harry and his tell-all book will “sideline” him from the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations next year, reports claim.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, revealed that he is writing the memoir, which will be published in the same year as the Jubilee.

And sources have now claimed it’s “inconceivable” that Harry and wife Meghan Markle can be part of the celebrations.

The Sun reports that royal insiders fear it will go further than the couple’s incendiary interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year.

And with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee – which celebrates 70 years on the throne – set to take place in June 2022, sources now say that Harry and Meghan are unlikely to be part of the plans.

The newspaper quotes a royal source, who said: “Everyone now thinks it is inconceivable that he and Meghan can be part of the Platinum Jubilee.

Will the book burn bridges?

The “intimate and heartfelt” memoir will be released next year.

In a statement, Harry said: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.”

However, fans fear that the book will burn any remaining bridges between him and his family.

One Twitter user said: “Family is so important – something to treasure for a lifetime – something to respect, value and honour…

“You will only find peace and happiness when you come home to your family – don’t burn the bridges to the way home – build a road back to love.”
