Prince Harry pressured to scrap huge new project to honour King Charles

Former Good morning Britain host Piers Morgan has urged the Duke of Sussex to cancel his tell-all book in “honour” of King Charles III.

Prince Harry, 37, announced plans for his tell-all book last year, in which he will explore his time as a young royal living in the United Kingdom all the way up to becoming a dad-of-two who now resides in Los Angeles.

At the time, Harry released a statement that said: "I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

"I've worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think,” he added.

He ended his speech with: "I'm deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I've learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that's accurate and wholly truthful."

However, it looks like the Duke of Sussex appears to have offered a peace offering to his father, King Charles, who he has had a troubled relationship with.

In his statement, Harry said he would "honour" the new King Charles as he starts his reign.

But, television personality Piers Morgan, 57, who is known to be very outspoken, has insisted that Harry should pull the plug on his book, following his promise to the new King.

Writing for the New York Post, the TalkTV presenter said: "If this book is as bad as the palace fears, all hell will break loose when it’s published, and the ensuing furor could depth-charge King Charles III’s reign before it’s even gotten going".

Piers continued: "So if Harry genuinely wants us to believe he has a desire to 'honour' his father, as he said today, he should tear up his lucrative contract with Penguin Random House and cancel the book."

Harry, on Monday 12 September, respectfully gave King Charles a nod in his tribute, where he hailed Queen Elizabeth, his grandmother as a "guiding compass" through her dedication to the world.

He said: "In celebrating the life of my grandmother, Her Majesty The Queen – and in mourning her loss – we are all reminded of the guiding compass she was to so many in her commitment to service and duty.

"She was globally admired and respected. Her unwavering grace and dignity remained true throughout her life and now her everlasting legacy.

Harry and Meghan Markle, 41, have both been living in California, after quitting their royal duties in 2020.

They were already in the UK last week, when the Queen's health was announced as cause for concern, as part of a Europe trip.

The couple have been staying at Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

This week, OK! celebrates the life of Her Majesty the Queen with a commemorative special in honour of Britain’s longest reigning monarch. Be sure to pick up your copy.
