Prince Harry Is Allegedly Worried About Michelle Obama’s Book Overshadowing His Memoir In Terms Of Sales
Prince Harry is allegedly worried that Michelle Obama’s new book will overshadow the sales of his memoir.
In its Aug. 8 issue, Woman’s Day claimed that Prince Harry and Obama’s books will be released just a few weeks apart.
Originally, the Duke of Sussex’s memoir was supposed to be released earlier but it was pushed back for a Christmas release.
Obama’s book, on the other hand, will be available around Thanksgiving, which means that it will be on the bookshelves starting Nov. 15.
Even though the release of the two books will happen a few weeks apart, Meghan Markle’s husband is still allegedly stressing over the fact that more people would want to buy Obama’s book. After all, The Light We Carry is a sequel to Obama’s bestselling book, Becoming.
“Harry’s in a bit of a pickle here because he needs this book to sell big in American markets. But Michelle is a beloved figure there and Harry is still finding his way. It could get very awkward,” the source said.
The tabloid also suggested that the release of Prince Harry and Obama’s book could cause tension in their once close relationship.
“For a moment in time, it looked as though the Sussexes and Barack and Michelle Obama could become firm friends, but now the families are going head-to-head in the battle of the Christmas book sales,” the publication said.
However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt. As of late, there’s still no confirmation when Prince Harry’s book will be released. So, it’s possible for it to be available around Christmas time or even before or after the holidays.
It is also important to note that Prince Harry and Obama’s books are very different from one another. So, they are not in direct competition with each other. And it’s not also true that the books will cause problems between the two families.
By the looks of it, the tabloid is just exaggerating its claims to make it seem as though there are tensions between Prince Harry and Obama. After all, this isn’t the first time that they were rumored to be feuding with each other.
In the past, there were claims that Barack and his wife decided to cut ties with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex after realizing that they are not as loved as they should be in Hollywood.
