Prince Charles cracks a joke during a visit to a school after Harry’s book deal announcement


Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles appeared in good spirits as they visited a primary school on St Mary’s in the Isles of Scilly in Cornwall today, hours after Prince Harry‘s shock memoir announcement.

The Prince of Wales, 72, and Duchess of Cornwall, 74, once again went mask free as they spoke with adults and children during their stop at Five Islands Academy School for an Eco Conference.

Charles kept his feelings about Harry’s bombshell book deal hidden as he cracked a joke and laughed with members of the public on the second day of his three-day tour of the South West with Camilla. 

He dressed for the hot weather in a cream suit as his wife, Camilla, looked elegant in a vibrant blue, summer frock with an exotic bird print.

The Duchess of Cornwall teamed her tropical print dress by Bombshell with tan-coloured kitten heels for the outing and completed her sophisticated ensemble with a simple gold jewelry and drop earrings.

Following their visit to the school, the royal couple headed to Porthcressa Quay where they spoke with key workers involved in community support during the pandemic. They also met local business owners who have been affected by lockdown. 

Charles and Camilla then made their way to Porthcressa Beach where they strolled along the picturesque sands and spoke with a crowd of well-wishers.

This comes as the Duke of Sussex’s $20million Megxit memoir was today branded a ‘moneymaking exercise at the expense of his blood family’ by royal experts and insiders who predicted it would be ‘a book by Harry, as written by Meghan.’

Harry, 36, did not warn his grandmother, father or brother about the tell-all book until ‘moments before it became public’ in a sign that his relationship with the Royal Family did not improve during his visit to unveil Princess Diana’s statue in London earlier this month, it was claimed today.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William are said to have been completely blindsided by Harry’s shock announcement that he has been secretly working on his as yet untitled memoirs with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer for a year, with a release date of late 2022, according to publisher Penguin Random House.

In a statement Harry said: ‘I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become’ – but one royal insider responded tartly: ‘A book by Harry, as written by Meghan.’

Prince Harry didn’t feel he needed permission from Buckingham Palace to write the memoir, his spokesman declared today.

The Sussexes’ spokesman told the BBC that Harry would not be expected to obtain permission for the project from Buckingham Palace – but it is not yet clear if royal officials will get to see the finished book before its release in late 2022 by publisher Penguin Random House. MailOnline has asked Harry’s LA team to comment. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s ‘truth bombing’ began in March with their extraordinary 90-minute interview with Oprah Winfrey where they accused the Royal Family of racism towards Archie and ignoring cries for help from a depressed Meghan when she was suicidal and pregnant.

In the chaotic aftermath of the show, watched by almost 100million people worldwide, the couple claimed this would be their ‘final word’ on Megxit, only to continue talking about it in more damaging detail over the coming months.

The book marks the first time that a senior royal has written this kind of tell-all, and the news of its existence comes amid an ongoing, and increasingly-bitter, rift between Harry and Meghan, and the rest of the Royal Family.

Few details about the book’s exact contents have been shared, however Penguin Random House issued a statement in which it revealed Harry’s book will provide an ‘intimate and heartfelt’ look into his life.

‘In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,’ the blurb reads.

 ‘Covering his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, on that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous and uplifting human story.’
