Harry ‘doesn’t want war’ with King as ‘grenade effect’ would distract them

A hopeful Prince Harry is said to be trying to avoid "war" with King Charles III, as it would be a distraction for him and Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Sussex "doesn't want war" with his newly-crowned father, one expert believes, as it would distract from his and the Duchess of Sussex's brand.

Expert Eric Schiffer aired the claims, saying that the "grenade like effect" to "Harry's power base" would be far too devastating for the Sussexes to deal with.

It comes as Harry is set to release his memoir, Spare, at the start of next year on January 10.

Expert Schiffer said of the potential war: "It's another grenade like effect on his [Harry's] power base. It's a grizzly reminder that he had impaled his standing through choices that are big problems for him today.

"He and Meghan decided to play it how he's played it, make the shifts that we're beginning now to see him make, which is a far more sensitive way.

"It is startlingly different approach, signalling to the King that he doesn't want a war. In fact, a time like this would elevate his standing and thus the brands of both of them."

In elevating said standing, it would appear Harry is intending to avoid any form of conflict with his father or the Royal Family.

But that could prove problematic as the memoir may be a revealing life behind the gates of Buckingham Palace.

Penguin Random House put up tens of millions for the exclusive rights to the memoir, which is said to have undergone a series of edits before the release.

Daily Star reported that the memoir has already received a price cut in parts of the UK, with Waterstones cutting the price of the book to half its recommended retail price.

The 416-page book is said to have been heavily edited at the last minute ahead of its release at the start of next year.
