The claims included in Prince Harry’s memoir, in particular, the focus on personality clashes, have the potential to “mark the beginning of the end of the monarchy”, according to a royal biographer. Catherine Mayer, who penned a King Charles biography titled The Heart of a King, told the Guardian: “It is possibly something that will mark the beginning of the end of the monarchy, and that is what we should discuss.” This discussion, she continued, is “important, given the lack of trust in the state at the moment”. Members of the Firm, Ms Mayer added, “have become our proxies for anger about racism, misogyny and wealth”. She also said: “This is, after all, an institution that stands for inequality, so there are huge things at stake.” If not addressed, the accusations of bullying, racism and misogyny among others made by Harry could potentially undermine the basis of consent by which the Royal Family retains in role in Britain, Ms Mayer added. Prince Harry’s memoir Spare will be released worldwide tomorrow, however, extracts from it have been circulating for almost a week after copies started to circulate in Spain. Neither Buckingham Palace nor Kensington Palace has yet commented on the allegations made by the Duke of Sussex in his book and recent interviews.
