Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, is due to publish a memoir exploring his current life in the Royal Family. No official release date has been announced, but Harry’s publisher Penguin Random House initially said it was considering a worldwide release “late 2022”.
Speaking on the latest episode of True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, Daily Mail editor Richard Kay claimed the Duke of Sussex may rethink his release.
Mr Kay claimed there was ‘still a possibility that the Royal Family’s pleas have not fallen on deaf ears’.
He added that Harry might have “doubts about when he will publish this book”.
There are also reports that the book was delayed because it was not included in the publisher’s marketing and promotional list.
A royal insider told The Sun last month: ‘If this book comes out this year as originally planned, it should be on the publisher’s marketing and promotional list – unless they are planning a surprise or that there was a delay. His omission raised many eyebrows in royal circles.
A spokeswoman for Transworld, part of Penguin Random House, said: “We don’t put every book on the list, so there’s nothing to extrapolate from that.”
Royal author Angela Levin told Channel 5’s Jeremy Vine last month that Harry may “have second thoughts” about the book’s publication.
Ms Levin said: ‘Well, we don’t know what’s in it, so I don’t think we can say whether it’s true or not.
“It obviously had some doubts because it would be on the publisher’s list and out in about a month.”

Should Prince Harry ‘reduce’ potential royal attacks in his memoirs?
Mr Kay also claimed Harry could ‘reduce’ potential royal attacks in his memoir.
Speaking to True Royalty TV’s Royal Beat, Mr Kay said: ‘The book was finished, we think, around January, Harry was part of it, the interviews.
“It was really when Harry was at the height of his rage if you will, with Britain, the royal family, the siblings. Since then there has been a certain rapprochement.
“We saw it at the Jubilee. There was a small attempt on Harry’s part to slow down a bit.
“He may want to readjust what he wrote. All of these things must be going through his head.
Will you be reading Harry’s next reveal book?
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped back from their roles as senior royals two years ago.
They moved to the United States to become financially independent from the royal family and pursue other projects.
Harry has been working on his book with the help of ghostwriter and Pulitzer Prize-winning author JR Moehringer since 2020.
In a statement announcing the release, posted on the Penguin Random House website, Harry said: “I write this not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become.”
He claimed the book would document the “ups and downs, mistakes, lessons learned”.
