The Queen is “lawyering up” and is “ready to fight” over Harry’s upcoming biography, Princess Diana’s former butler Paul Burrell has claimed
Paul Burrell has claimed the Queen is ready to “fight back” against Prince Harry’s autobiography.
The Duke of Sussex – who alongside his wife Meghan Markle quit as working royals last year – is set to release an autobiography next year, which will document the “experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons that have helped shape” him into who he is today.
And now Paul has said the Queen is “lawyering up” and is ready to take on Harry and Meghan when his autobiography gets released.
He told Closer magazine : “The Queen lawyering up is totally unprecedented – it’s her way of saying, ‘Enough is enough now’.
“The Queen is a warm, fair, loyal, forgiving, compassionate woman – but if you cross her more than once, or tell her lies, you lose her respect. And it seems things have gone too far – Harry and Meghan show no signs of stopping the missiles.
“Back in the day, the ‘never complain, never explain’ rule could work, and it added to the mystery and privacy of the royals. Nowadays, with how quickly news travels and social media, it simply can’t work, especially given Harry and Meghan’s allegations.”
And Paul claims the monarch is “apprehensive about what could come next” from Harry and Meghan, who now reside in California.
He added: “This constant drip of information from across the Atlantic, which seems never-ending, has the potential to do an awful lot of damage to both the monarchy and her family.
He said that he suspects the Queen is “apprehensive” about what could come next from her grandson and his wife, and that she could be forced to “fight back”.
Harry vowed his first memoir will show how much he has in “common” with others, despite his royal status.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” he said in a statement.
“I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope 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 also explained how he was “deeply grateful” to share what he’s learned.
“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,” he added.
