- British writer Tom Bower discussed Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir ‘Spare’ on ‘Good Morning Britain’
- ‘Revenge’ author claimed Harry’s book was ‘really’ Meghan Markle’s
- Bower described Markle as “very smart” and “very sophisticated”
Meghan Markle is the mastermind behind Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir ‘Spare’, a royal expert has claimed.
British writer and former BBC journalist and TV producer Tom Bower discussed Prince Harry’s highly anticipated autobiography during an appearance on ‘Good Morning Britain’ this week.
The royal biographer claimed on the morning show that it is the Duchess of Sussex who ‘dictates’ her husband’s agenda. International Business Times could not independently verify this information.
“Hell [Harry] keeping her princely title is Meghan I’m looking for,” Bower said when asked if the couple should keep their royal titles, according to The Sun. “Her book is really Meghan’s. Meghan is the person who dictated this program.”
Host Ed Balls argued that the book was by Prince Harry and not his wife. However, Bower responded with a question: “Do you think he read it?”
Prince Harry worked with famed ghostwriter JR Moehringer for his memoir, The New York Times reported. Reports surfaced over the weekend that the Duke of Sussex contacted his friends and ex-girlfriends in the UK and asked them to speak with the writer.
“Meghan actually read every word,” Bower said on “GMB.” “Meghan is very smart, very sophisticated.”
The royal expert continued to criticize Markle, saying Queen Elizabeth II, Prince William, King Charles III and Princess Diana’s brother Charles Spencer had “seen her through”.
“[Meghan] was adventurous [and] came here to make fame and fortune [and go] back to America. [She] exploits his royal title, earns money with [it]”, Bower said.
Several other royal experts have commented on Prince Harry’s book since his publisher Penguin Random House revealed its title and January 2023 release date last week.
One of Prince Harry’s biographers, Angela Levin, called the headline “derogatory”.
“I think it’s a tragedy that he used that title,” Levin said on Sky News Australia. “I mean, does he still feel that way, having left the royal family, found a woman he’s absolutely smitten with, had two kids, a huge house and all the freedom he wanted? What he’s doing , it’s looking back and clinging to it.”
The royal expert went on to say the idea that Prince Harry was being treated as if he were unwanted is “nonsense”.
“Harry was second most popular with the Queen. He liked to have fun, liked to be a bit naughty. He was full of energy. When I wrote his biography [from] From 2017 to 2018 he was just a live feed, fantastic with people of all ages, of all kinds, so it seems so pejorative to call yourself available like no one wants you,” Levin said.
Majesty Magazine editor Ingrid Seward echoed the same sentiments, saying it was “pathetic” that “being the reserve” was still at the forefront of Prince Harry’s mind after all these years.
“It’s really kind of pathetic that he couldn’t move on. Diana used to call him the replacement. Harry was like ‘I’m the replacement, I don’t have to behave , I can do what I love,'” Seward said.
“Spare” hits shelves on January 10, 2023.
