Some of the revelations to be released in Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir reportedly came as a “huge shock” to Meghan Markle.

Harry and Meghan stepped down as senior royals in 2020 before moving to the US to live.

They have since sat down for a wide-ranging interview with Oprah Winfrey where they made allegations of racism against an unnamed member of the Royal Family.

Harry’s memoir is set to be released later this year with Buckingham Palace said to be bracing for ahead of the stories the Duke of Sussex could include.

But some of the stories in the book's manuscript reportedly also came as a shock to Meghan.

A report in Heatworld, citing a source, said: "This narrative that Meghan essentially stood over Harry as he wrote the book is way off the mark.

"He and JR Moeringer spent months going through his private photo album, journals, emails and so forth.

"It naturally brought up some extremely raw feelings and surprise anecdotes, many of which came as a huge shock to Meghan when she read through the manuscript."

This comes just weeks after royal experts claimed that Harry could “readjust” his memoir after “spiking his guns”.

Royal expert Richard 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.

While fellow royal author Duncan Larcombe added: "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.”
