Prince Harry has reportedly been “iced out” by his father, Prince Charles, over the contents of his memoir due out later this year.
Citing a “very good” royal source, expert Neil Sean said when Charles and Harry had a brief meeting in Windsor ahead of the Invictus Games in Holland, Harry “refused” to talk about what he’d written in the book.
It led Charles to allegedly “ice” his son and stop the meeting after just 10 minutes, The Express reported.

“We know that Prince Charles spent very little time with his son Prince Harry,” Sean said on his YouTube channel.
“Charles wanted to have a one-to-one chat but that ended up being a very brief meeting.
“According to a very good source, allegedly, Prince Harry refused to detail anything about his forthcoming memoir to Prince Charles.”
Sean said the move meant Charles would have “to wait and see like the rest of us”.
“The fact they are remaining so tight-lipped means there have to be some bombshells in the memoir,” Sean said.
“Charles then iced his younger son with a very short meeting.
“He wanted to have a mature, adult conversation about what the book will contain, and whether the royals should be concerned about anything.”
Prince Harry’s “intimate and heartfelt” memoir – reportedly set to capitalize on the Christmas market – has previously been described as the “final nail in the coffin” for his relationship with the Royal Family.
Harry announced the memoir to the world in July 2021, promising it would be “accurate and wholly truthful”.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” the 36-year-old said in a statement.
“The manuscript has been finished and gone through all of the legal processes,” a publishing source told the Sun.
“It’s done and out of Harry’s hands. The publishing date has been pushed back once, but it is on track for the end of the year.”
Palace insiders, however, have reportedly spoken out about a “growing sense of shock and fury” within the firm about the upcoming book.
Royal sources have claimed Harry’s decision to pen a tell-all autobiography blindsided Prince Charles and ruined any remaining hope of a reconciliation.
“This is the no-going-back moment – the final nail in the coffin of the Royal Family’s relationship with Harry,” a “senior royal source” told Mail Online.
“The emotional turmoil as they wait over a year for publication is going to be torturous.”
Another source said: “Prince Charles didn’t know anything about it. This is really painful, it’s going to be difficult for him to take. The assumption is that he will take another kicking from Harry.”
“The real disappointing thing for Charles is that he used to get on with Harry so well, actually far better than William. He feels so let down by the whole thing.”
Insiders have also claimed that Harry’s book will spell the “end of any close relationship” with Prince William, who is said to have labeled Harry’s recent behavior as “shameful and tasteless”.
“Harry’s been going around to people saying he can’t remember his childhood and his mother that much. Now he’s going to write a book about it. How does that stack up? a source added.
“What’s really telling is even the relatives he remains closest to, like princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, are stunned by what he’s up to.”
