Kate Middleton will pay ‘high price’ for Prince Harry’s memoir, says expert

Kate Middleton "could end up paying a high price" when Prince Harry's tell-all memoir is released, according to a royal expert.

Spare is set to be released next Tuesday (January 10), with publishers Penguin Random House promising "raw, unflinching honesty" as well as "revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom".

For royal commentator Daniela Elser, it's the "raw, unflinching honesty" that she thinks may prove a "nightmare" for the Princess of Wales.

Earlier this week, sources claimed Kate and Prince William were the royals that come under fire in Harry's book, with King Charles less so.

One insider told The Sunday Times: "Generally, I think the book [will be] worse for them than the Royal Family is expecting. Everything is laid bare. Charles comes out of it better than I had expected, but it’s tough on William, in particular, and even Kate gets a bit of a broadside.

"There are these minute details, and a description of the fight between the brothers. I personally can’t see how Harry and William will be able to reconcile after this."

Writing for, Elser explained the release of the book would be a "particularly hard experience" for Kate.

She said: "For Kate, right now, watching her formerly close brother-in-law on the cusp of yet another offensive, and with not only her husband reportedly in his sights but her too, must be a particularly hard experience, not least because there is nothing they can do.

"Unlike in the wake of Harry and Meghan's Oprah interview, when we got the now-iconic 'recollections may vary' statement, so far, Buckingham and Kensington Palaces have assiduously refused to comment on the Sussexes' broadsides.

"The way things look today, there may well be more discomfort and sadness for William and Kate to come."
