Prince Harry is desperate to make revisions to his upcoming memoir in light of Queen Elizabeth II's death, a royal insider has claimed.
- Prince Harry wants to have 'sections' of his memoir 'changed' in light of Queen Elizabeth II's death, a royal insider has revealed.
- The Duke of Sussex's autobiography, which is the first of a £36m three-title deal, was previously expected to be released in November 2023.

Prince Harry is determined to have 'sections' of his upcoming memoir 'changed' before it goes to print, a royal insider has revealed.
The news comes just a week after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex returned to the US from their Europe trip, which was unexpectedly extended by the Queen's devastating death at Balmoral Castle on September 8.
Prince Harry's memoir plans were first announced in July 2021, with the 38-year-old promising to explore the "experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him" in the highly-anticipated book.
The autobiography was reportedly finished in July 2022, with one source telling the Sun (opens in new tab)that the final drafts have already gone through all "the legal stages."
A release date for Harry's memoir has yet to be announced, but insiders have suggested that its publisher, Penguin Random House, is determined to have it on shelves for November 2022.
It's now understood, however, that Prince Harry is "desperate" to have the book "refined" over concerns about some of its more controversial chapters.
“There may be things which might not look good if they come out so soon after the Queen’s death and his dad becoming King," a royal insider told The Sun.
The Royal Family has reportedly feared that Prince Harry's memoir will contain insensitive writings about his stepmother, Camilla, Queen Consort, as well as more details on the alleged mistreatment he and Meghan Markle received at the hands of the Firm after their 2018 wedding.
"He wants sections changed. It’s not a total rewrite by any means. He desperately wants to make changes."
But Prince Harry's wishes to have the memoir edited at the last minute may not be possible, especially if publishers want the hardback on shelves in time for Christmas. "It might be too late," the royal insider warned.
