Prince Harry is trying to “brand himself as Barack Obama” as he prepares to release his tell-all memoir release.

Harry is reportedly set to release the book later this year, with Buckingham Palace said to be bracing itself for potential stories that could be revealed.

The book’s release comes months after Harry and his wife Meghan Markle were forced to play a minimal role at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations after stepping down as senior royals in 2020.

And ahead of the book’s release, royal author Kinsey Schofield believes Harry is trying to “brand himself” as the former US President.

Ms Schofield said: "What I think he’s trying to do is brand himself as a Mark Zuckerberg, Barack Obama — some guy that can get $100,000 for a speech in Miami to a bunch of rich dudes.

“I think he is trying to brand himself as a leader in the United States and will use his book to try to do that.

“He wanted to try to rewrite his story and to be this phoenix rising from the ashes.

“That is the route I think he is going to go,” she told the Express.

While Harry could “readjust” his memoir after “spiking his guns”, royal experts have claimed.

Richard Kay believes that Harry may be having second thoughts about the contents of the memoir.

Mr Kay said: "There is still that possibility that the entreaties of the Royal Family have not fallen on deaf ears, and that Harry is having second thoughts about when he publishes this book at all...

"The book was completed, we believe in, about January - at least Harry’s part in it - the interviews.

“That was really when Harry was still at peak rage, with Britain, with the Royal Family, with his sibling and family.

"Since then, there has been a measure of a rapprochement. We saw it at the Jubilee, there was a bit of an attempt by Harry to sort of wind it down a bit.

“Will he want to readjust what he’s written? All these things must be going through his mind,” he told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat.

Fellow royal author Duncan Larcombe also added on the matter: "When he saw the Queen on his way to the Invictus Games earlier this year.

“I think Harry seems to have just slightly spiked his guns. The Queen has slightly calmed the situation down.”
