Prince Harry’s memoir will leave him facing “years” of “repurcussions”, a royal commentator has said. However, Meghan Markle has been issued a stark warning not to follow her husband’s footseps as it has been reported the former actress may be planning to release a bombshell tell-book of her own this year.

Russell Myers, the Mirror’s royal editor, speaking to Sky News Australia, described Spare as an “absolute bombshell” with a huge impact on the Royal Family.

The book left Harry’s relationship with father King Charles and brother Prince William “battered,” he added.

He said: “You start off at the beginning of the year, we had Harry’s memoir Spare which was an absolute bombshell throughout the Royal Family.

“We’re still talking about it now. He’s still picking up the pieces of his sort of battered relationship with his father and his brother.

“Absolutely nobody was spared – excuse the pun – from his barbs in that book and I think we’ll still see the repercussions of that in the next year or two and whether Harry can sort of find a way back into the family remains to be seen.”

But Spare is unlikely to be the last book from the Sussexes, according to multiple experts. Rumours have swirled for some time that Meghan could be looking to publish an autobiography in the future.

A Hollywood agent told the Mail on Sunday: “I would find it surprising if Meghan didn’t publish her own story, to be honest.

“Spare is clearly Prince Harry’s chance to tell his, but hers is equally compelling. I mean, how many actresses end up marrying a Prince?” they added. “If she’s harbouring political ambitions it would make even more sense.”

PR guru Matt Yanofsky said Meghan’s book would likely be a huge success – but that doesn’t mean it would be a great idea for the Duchess.

He exclusively told Express US: “Meghan, of course, thinks she’s a fancy celebrity, not the glorified reality star that she is. Just as she did a ‘documentary’ instead of a ‘reality show,’ it’s possible she will copy Princess Diana and work with an authorized biographer as Diana sat down for interviews in the nineties for a book.”

He added: “There are many options to make money selling out the royals when your name is Meghan!”

If Spare hadn’t already damaged the Sussexes’ relationship with the Firm enough, the book by Meghan’s former biographer Omid Scobie dealt another devastating blow.

Endgame dug up issues and scandals from months and years ago that the House of Windsor as a whole, including the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, would have preferred to remain far from the spotlight, argued Daily Mail Royal editor Rebecca English. She said: “It’s raised uncomfortable situations that the family were really hopeful of trying to bury, and I include Harry and Meghan in that.

“I remember after the whole furore around Spare, and before that the Netflix documentary and all of the interviews, one member of their team briefing very grandly that this was the end of their ‘look-back projects’. Part of me thought, who gives you the right to say this is our programme of look-back projects?

“But that’s what they said, we are entering this new era, and now we are focusing on our future, our own self-generated stuff rather than stuff about the Royal Family.

“And they haven’t done any Royal Family-related project, so I get the impression they were really hoping to start to move forward, slightly naively I think.”
