King Charles ‘ready to play hardball with Prince Harry’ if book blasts Camilla

King Charles is 'ready to play hardball' with Prince Harry if his new memoir attacks Queen Consort Camilla.

Buckingham Palace has been on high alert for what revelations and digs towards the Royal Family, the Duke of Sussex may make ever since it was revealed that a memoir was being penned.

While the King may turn the other cheek for a damning memory shared, anything that he considers a slight on his wife, will result in a blanket ban from his coronation for Harry's family, the Daily Beast reports.

The Beast’s Tom Sykes said: “It is one thing for Harry to attack Charles, he can take it on the chin, but if Harry forces him to choose, by laying into Camilla in his book, I have no doubt he will choose Camilla.

“Almost everything Charles has done over the past 20 years has, in one way or another, been about getting Camilla accepted by the public.”

As a result, a "tremendous nervousness" is brewing over how much Harry will undo the King's hard work in building his second wife's image.

This angst over Harry's book which was originally scheduled to be published over the coming weeks, has been echoed by the Mail on Sunday which claims “Buckingham Palace is in a state of high alarm”.

In her column for News.com.au, Daniela Elser says that readers of Harry's memoir can probably expect to indulge in his childhood quibbles with dad, Charles and big brother Prince William.

Anything excessive, though, and Daniela adds that the new monarch will not hold back and missing Charles' coronation would be a "very serious blow" for the Sussexes' marketability.

She writes: "Barring Harry and Meghan from the coronation would make the series of humiliations they suffered at the hands of Buckingham Palace during Queen Elizabeth’s funeral pale in comparison.

"It would be a public rebuke and repudiation of the couple, whose US careers, built on the back of their royal status, have thus far anemically spluttered along."
