Brand expert Eric Schiffer, Chairman of Reputation Management Consultants said that Harry would have to give into the King's wishes as the new monarch will be demanding "far greater respect" after ascending the throne. Speaking to Daily Star, Schiffer said, "I think there were some serious and painful episodes that occurred between Harry and his father, that led to what many see as a mangling of the relationship, and the potential that had serious and crippling effects to the bond."

He went on to elaborate, "That is now resulting in some strong boundaries [set] by the King, and expectations that he and the monarchy will be treated with far greater respect. Their conversations were likely strained and revealed some deep pain, or periods of deep pain, that resulted in a desire to change the power dynamic of the relationship, and led to some boundaries that had not been in place before with the King."

Schiffer added, "Now it’s the King’s choice to place his own boundaries as it’s not just him individually as a father, it’s also the monarchy."

Recently, there were rumors that Harry might abandon his $39M memoir in order to attend his father's coronation, according to experts, in a ceremony on May 6, 2023.

Despite there being tension between Harry and Meghan, and the rest of the royal family, it appears that the Duke of Sussex is "desperate" to attend his father's coronation to the extent that he will retract his memoirs. Royal expert Angela Levin believed the Duke of Sussex may completely abandon his biography, especially since it had been delayed since the Queen's death.

There has been considerable buzz around Harry's memoir ever since it was announced. However, reports said the publication of the book was still in limbo. Harry and Meghan were reportedly "in a bind" as they had "taken all this money" and Harry was "supposed to spill everything," but he was now having second thoughts, according to royal biographer Tina Brown.
