Prince Charles is enraged at a memoir written by a former assistant at Buckingham Palace: ‘Man was a friend!’
When the Queen’s ex-press secretary Dickie Arbiter decided to divulge secrets about his relationship with Princess Diana and the breakdown of two other royal marriages in an explosive new book, Prince Charles was supposed to be enraged.
The Duke of Sussex has revealed that in a biography expected out next year, he would chronicle his “mistakes and lessons learned” throughout his life. Prince Harry said he would depict “the highs and lows” and be “exact and fully true” as he announced the partnership with Penguin Random House. Harry, who retired from royal duties and moved to California with his wife Meghan, will donate the money to charity.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the man I’ve become,” the Duke stated in a statement.
“Over the years, I’ve worn many hats, both physically and metaphorically, and my hope is that by sharing my experience – the highs and lows, the mistakes, and the lessons gained – I can illustrate that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we believe.
“I’m happy for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned thus far in my life, and I’m looking forward to people reading a first-hand account of my life that is accurate and completely truthful.”
The Windsors were allegedly taken aback by the announcement of the book, which is the first time a prominent member of the Royal Family has written such an intimate account of their life.
The announcement was met with “huge sighs” within the royal residences, according to one source, and another close to Prince Charles said they were “surprised” by the news.
After all, the Prince of Wales does not appear to enjoy new novels about his family that are explosive.
When the Queen’s ex-press secretary Dickie Arbiter planned to write a book on his relationship with Diana and the failure of two other royal marriages in 2014, the Prince was supposed to be enraged.
“Charles is enraged,” a royal source stated.
“This man was a well-known acquaintance.”
Blink Publishing’s book “On Duty with the Queen” promises to reveal what life was like “behind the scenes” at the Palace during Mr Arbiter’s time there during “the most difficult period in the modern British monarchy.”
