You'd think the Windsor gang was over having the world rocked by a new book, with Prince Harry's reportedly no-holds-barred memoir due out next year (at what has been deemed a pretty inconvenient time for the rest of the royal family). It's the year 2021! Why not, like other famous people, have your public image shattered by a streaming service documentary series?
However, a new memoir by Tina Brown threatens to add fuel to the Palace's already smoldering few years. The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor — The Truth and Turmoil is set to be released in April of next year, just a few months before Harry's rumored bombshell memoir.
The fact that Tina Brown, the legendary magazine editor who over her decades-long career ran The New Yorker, The Daily Beast, and Newsweek, is the author of the new book may excite royal watchers even more—her previous book on the subject, 2007's The Diana Chronicles, is considered one of the most important books written on the late Princess.
This new book is considered her follow-up and will be “full of powerful revelations, nuanced details, and searing insight” into the family, according to publisher Penguin.
The Palace Papers will pick up where The Diana Chronicles left off, revealing new stories about the family over a 25-year period as they tried to put their lives back together after Princess Diana's death.
The details come from Brown's "years of research and intimate access" to the family, according to The Daily Mail, and he will reportedly not hold back when it comes to Prince Andrew's associations with Jeffrey Epstein and Meghan and Harry's departure from the family.
The Palace is reportedly "bracing" for the book's revelations, according to the Mail, especially because the book will "irrevocably change how the world perceives and understands the royal family," as the publisher puts it.
