Time for a “The Royals Are Spiraling About Prince Harry’s Upcoming Memoir” update! Apparently, Prince Charles—who has been busy offering olive branches to Harry in the hopes of mending their strained relationship ahead of the memoir—is worried that Harry might write some not-that-positive things about his wife, Duchess Camilla.

The Sun reports that Charles has told aides he fears Harry’s book will be an “excoriating takedown” of Camilla, and that he’s also expressed his concerns to Prince William. But apparently, Wills doesn’t want to get involved, and likely won’t follow through on Charles’ request that he “go in and bat for Camilla” publicly if Harry writes about her in the memoir.

A source tells The Sun, “Charles has shared his concerns with William and is keen he somehow goes on the record and sticks up for Camilla should the book attack her. But as much as William loves his father, he’s unlikely to want to get involved. In all likelihood, he will try and stay neutral.”

A source also notes, “There are concerns about Harry’s recollections of Camilla’s entry into the Royal Family and how her long-running romance with Charles damaged him from a young age. Harry is fiercely loyal and protective of his late mother and her legacy and didn’t approve of Camilla sweeping in as the great love of his father’s life. Understandably, he found those early years incredibly difficult, and he might publicly blame Camilla for much of what he believes went wrong in his childhood, and the trauma the whole situation caused.”

Meanwhile, “Charles is deeply protective of Camilla. The last thing he needs—especially in a year of celebration that should be all about the Queen—is an excoriating takedown of Camilla at a time when people have finally taken her to their hearts.”

Harry has in no way indicated that Camilla will be part of his memoir, so the royals can probably chill for now!
