- British author Tom Bower discussed Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir “Spare” on “Good Morning Britain”
- ‘Revenge’ author has claimed Harry’s book is ‘really’ Meghan Markle’s
- Bauer described Markle as ‘very smart’ and ‘very sophisticated’
Meghan Markle is the mastermind behind Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, ‘Spare’, a royal expert has claimed.
British author and former BBC journalist and television producer Tom Bower discussed Prince Harry’s long-awaited autobiography during an appearance on “Good Morning Britain” this week.
The royal biographer claimed on the morning show that it is the Duchess of Sussex who “dictates” her husband’s agenda. The International Business Times was unable to independently verify this information.
“Hell [Harry] keep his princely title, it’s Meghan I’m after,” Bower said when asked if the couple should keep their royal titles, according to the Sun. “His book is really Meghan’s. Meghan is the person who has dictated this agenda.”
Presenter Ed Balls claimed the book is Prince Harry’s and not his wife’s. However, Bauer responded with a question: “Do you think he’s read it?”
Prince Harry has teamed up with famed ghostwriter JR Moehringer for his memoir, the New York Times reported. Reports emerged over the weekend that the Duke of Sussex contacted his friends and ex-girlfriends in the UK and asked them to speak to the author.
“Meghan has actually read every word,” Bauer claimed to “GMB.” “Megan is very smart, very sophisticated.”
The royal insider continued to hit out at Markle, claiming that Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, King Charles III and Princess Diana’s brother, Charles Spencer, “saw” her.
“[Meghan] it was adventurous [and] he came here to make fame and fortune [and go] back to America. [She] she takes advantage of her royal title, making money from [it]Bauer argued.
Several other royal insiders have commented on Prince Harry’s book since publisher Penguin Random House revealed its title and January 2023 release date last week.
One of Prince Harry’s biographers, Angela Levin, slammed the title as “derogatory”.
“I think it’s a tragedy that he used that title,” Levin told Sky News Australia. “I mean, does he still feel that way after he left the royal family, found a woman who has tortured him, got two kids, a huge house and all the freedom he wants? What he does is look back and hang on to it.”
The royal expert went on to claim that the idea that Prince Harry was being treated as unwanted is “nonsense”.
“Harry was second most popular to the Queen. He liked to fool around, he liked to be a bit naughty. He was full of energy. When I wrote his biography [from] From 2017 to 2018, it was just a live train, fantastic with people of all ages, of all kinds, so it sounds so derogatory to call yourself single like no one wanted you,” Levin said.
Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty magazine, echoed the same sentiments, saying it was “passionate” that “being the backup” is still at the forefront of Prince Harry’s mind after all these years.
“It’s a bit of a pity really that he didn’t get to move on. Diana used to call him the back-up. Harry used to say ‘I’m the back-up, I don’t have to act, I can do whatever I like’,” Seward said.
“Spare” will hit shelves on January 10, 2023.
