Royal authors are lining up to publish books that promise to reveal the truth about the conflict between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and Buckingham Palace.
Anyone waking up in Britain this weekend and bringing a newspaper back to bed could be forgiven for believing the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are also sleeping.
Such is the flurry of attention in the UK media as royal authors and commentators line up to release books that were likely written months before Queen Elizabeth’s death earlier this month but were held back for fear of hurting the famous Queen in her final chapter of reign.
Extracts from at least three books by famous royal novelists and correspondents have appeared in the weekend papers.
Vanity Fair’s royal writer Katie Nicholls is publishing ‘The New Royals: Queen Elizabeth’s Legacy and the Future of the Crown,’ in which she details the Queen’s “surprise” that Meghan Markle, a divorcee, chose to wear white at her wedding to Prince Harry, among other revelations detailed in the Daily Mail.
Angela Levin, author of ‘Camilla, from Outcast to Queen Consort,’ was also featured in the Daily Mail on September 29.
The most problematic publishing arrival for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex is Valentine Low at The Times. Last year, he was the first to reveal the bullying allegations leveled against Meghan by members of her staff. He has now written a book ‘Courtiers: The Hidden Power Behind the Crown,” giving a comprehensive outline of events – including his revelations that staff who have since departed the Palace have since labeled themselves “the Sussex Survivors Club.”
There is other news occurring in the UK at the moment but, from a glance at this weekend’s front pages, you wouldn’t necessarily know it.
