Prince Harry’s $20million memoir is mocked on Seven’s The Morning Show

‘Talk about having it both ways’: The Morning Show hosts mock Prince Harry for saying he wrote his $20million memoir ‘not as a prince’… before signing off with his royal title

The hosts of Seven’s The Morning Show have taken a dig at Prince Harry for his seemingly contradictory statements about his upcoming memoir.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, announced on Monday he’s been secretly working on a book about his life in the Royal Family for nearly a year, after securing a publishing deal said to be worth $20million.

Speaking to entertainment reporter Peter Ford on Tuesday, co-anchors Larry Emdur and Kylie Gillies couldn’t help but laugh at Harry’s choice of words in a press release about his autobiography.

‘I do love the statement that Prince Harry made when he said he is “writing this book not as the Prince he was born but as the man he has become” – and signed it as Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex,’ Ford scoffed.

‘Talk about having it both ways!’ he added, as Emdur and Gillies burst into laughter.  

‘Hang onto that Sussex bit!’ Emdur interjected.

It comes amid growing pressure on Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, to stop using their royal titles after the couple openly criticised the Firm in the media.  

Almost 50,000 people signed an online petition led by Lady Colin Campbell last month, which urged the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to ‘voluntarily’ request the Queen put their ‘royal-style titles and rank in abeyance’.  

Prince Harry confirmed on Monday he was penning an intimate memoir that will expose the ‘mistakes’ and ‘lessons learned’ during his life.

In a press release for his new book – which will no doubt be critical of the Royal Family – Harry said: ‘I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story – the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. 

‘I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.’

Experts told DailyMail.com that Harry will have been given ‘at least’ USD$20million (£14.6million) advance for the memoir, with millions more to be made in sales.
