The announcement comes at a time of strained relations between Harry and the British royal family as allegations of bullying and racial slurs continue to make waves, as Channel 24 reports.

According to Royal author Robert Jobson, the tell-all book will have severely damaging repercussions for the entire monarchy.

“It will become an international bestseller, but at what cost to the monarchy? There will be nowhere to hide," he told the UK Express.

The royal expert also warned that the memoir could create a further divide between Harry, Princes Charles and his brother William.

“If Harry...goes into detail about mental health issues surrounding wife Meghan Markle and the alleged racism at the centre of this royal feud, it will be hugely damaging to the House of Windsor and the Monarchy as an institution.
“Harry is already arguabley rich and settled into his new life as an American celebrity, so apart from damaging his family - which a book like this will inevitably do, I am unsure of what he is trying to achieve. Whatever he says will defintley lead to conflict," he ended.

A first draft of the book is already in the works and is set to be submitted sometime in October.
