You have to feel for the Queen, what with the fallout from Megxit, the ongoing Corona crisis and passing of her beloved late husband Prince Philip, 2021 hasn’t been the best of years for the 92 year old monarch.
Now, the Queen – and the rest of the royal family – now face a further blow as they anticipate the release of a potentially explosive new book penned by Magazine editor Tina Brown. ‘The Palace Papers: Inside The House Of Windsor – The Truth And The Turmoil will be published in April – just months before Prince Harry's tell-all memoir is set to hit the shelves.
Harry’s book – due to be released in late 2022, the Queen’s jubilee year – could potentially be as damaging to the royals as the sensational interview he and Meghan gave to Oprah Winfrey this spring. It’s being marketed as the “definitive account" of Harry’s experiences as a Windsor.
According to insiders at Penguin who are publishing this new book by Tina Brown – who also wrote the 2007 bestseller The Diana Chronicles – would tell 'the real story' of the Royal Family over the 25 years since the death of Princess Diana. It also claims to be 'full of nuanced details and searing insight'.
Which doesn’t necessarily bode well for Buckingham Palace. The book is said to track the Queen's 'loosening grip' on the monarchy and is based on the former Vanity Fair editor's 'years of research and intimate access'.
Included will be the allegations surrounding Prince Andrew's friendship with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, the tensions between brothers William and Harry, as well as Harry and Meghan's decision to step back as senior members of the royal family.
The publisher said it would tell 'the real story' of the Royal Family over the 25 years since the death of Princess Diana. The title will 'irrevocably change the way readers perceive and understand the Royal Family', it added.
Tina Brown wrote on Twitter yesterday: 'Excited to announce my new book… read how the monarchy tried to preserve itself amidst explosive headlines.'
Tina Brown said: "This is, above all, the survival story of a family in which the pre-eminence of duty is in constant tension with the very human desires of love, ambition and the longing for escape. Writing it has been a fascinating journey."
Ben Brusey, publishing director at Century, added: "The Palace Papers is a tour de force in every sense – the most insightful, enjoyable and substantial account of the Royal family I have read. Only Tina Brown could have written it, with her impeccable sources and deep knowledge of the institution.

"Tina masterfully takes readers inside the palace walls," continues Ben Brusey. " And to a place of understanding that Netflix's The Crown could only dream of. Publishing in extraordinary times for the Royal family, I know The Palace Papers will add richly to the public debate."
We cannot wait to read a copy, though we doubt the Queen – or indeed any of the Royals – feel the same anticipation.
