Harry, a prince who is now attempting to moonlight as a producer, is writing a memoir that he believes will not damage his relationship with the royal family but is just a chance for him to reveal his “truth.”
So, how dumb is Prince Harry?
According to Page Six, royal insiders see things rather differently, with one stating, “On what planet does Harry think that this is not a ‘f—k you’ to the family?’
It’s entirely possible that he doesn’t know. If Harry has shown the world anything this year, it’s that he’s not too bright and is a person who can be completely manipulated by someone else.
Reports indicate that the former prince has been working on the book for a year and feels like he can finally share his “truth.”
But will it be his truth? Meghan’s truth? Or the truth?
Most likely it will be a combination of the first two and not the third. Meghan and Harry generally have a terrible time navigating and remembering the truth, and consistently change it after they feel like they’ve been slighted by the royal family. It’s not “truth” but a bitter attempt to reframe themselves as the victims of a racist, horrific and dismissive royal institution, while they simultaneously use it to shamelessly make money.
Members of the royal family are also incredibly concerned about what will be in this memoir.
Harry’s cousins Princess Eugenie and Zara Phillips-Tindall are both “less than thrilled about the book.”
Prince Charles is also worried about what Harry could say about his stepmother Camilla. The source said, “Let’s be honest, Harry has never been close to the Duchess of Cornwall. If he documents their fraught relationship in the book it could be very damaging at a time when Charles is laying the groundwork for her to become Queen.”
Not to mention what Harry will reveal about his brother and future king, Prince William, his wife Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge, and their children.
For a man who constantly harps on about his privacy, he is quick to share intimate details about his life and the lives of his family members in order to make a buck.
So, again, this begs the question, how dumb is Prince Harry?
This book will do nothing to mend the relationships he’s strained since first introducing family members to the Charlatan Duchess Meghan Markle. It’s those family bonds that we’re consistently told that he wants to mend, yet he’s quick to betray whatever remaining trust they have in him for a cool $20 million, if those reports are remotely true.
He’s also quick to remind everyone that he is a prince, despite constantly complaining about his immensely privileged status.
His last visits to the U.K. were quick and heavily managed, but how will a general crowd react? Will he finally realize the damage he’s done to his reputation when he and his wife are called out and booed in mass? Is it then that he’ll finally realize that he’s not “one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time,” as his publishers claim, but a global laughing stock?
Many people will steer clear of this book simply on principle, but the vast majority will pick it up simply to get a glimpse of the car crash his life has become. He’s mistaken notoriety and tabloid interest for influence.
It’s not the same thing, and Harry probably won’t realize this until he’s no longer His Royal Highness Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, but instead just simply Prince Harry. No HRH and no dukedom. Maybe then he’ll finally wake up and recognize that he’s not changing or influencing the world, he’s simply become a joke.
