Prince Charles allegedly became physically sick after learning that Prince Harry will be releasing a memoir next year.

In its August 2 issue, New Idea claimed that the royal family is already worried about Prince Charles’ health because he’s been sick for years. In fact, his swollen hands and feet are allegedly an indication that he’s not healthy.

However, the heir to the throne’s health deteriorated further after he found out that his youngest son will be releasing a memoir. After all, Prince Charles is convinced that Prince Harry would reveal humiliating information about him in his book.

A source claimed that Prince Charles fell to the ground upon hearing the news.

“Some say Charles is getting a bit unsteady on his feet and has come perilously close to a serious fall a few times. It’s a nightmare for everyone around him. This news about Harry’s book could send him over the edge,” the source said.

The insider also said that Prince Charles has been struggling in recent months because of his son and daughter-in-law, Meghan Markle.

He didn’t publicly comment on the couple’s controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey in March. But the Sussexes’ revelation hurt Prince Charles to the core.

As such, the dad of two couldn’t help but become angry at the couple at first. But he eventually decided to just avoid the Duke and Duchess of Sussex because his health is suffering.

“No doubt Prince Charles is feeling sad about the book because you cannot negotiate with someone who pours out his grievances in public and also angry because although Harry has left the royal family, he should abide by the rules,” the source said.

However, one should take the tabloid’s claims with a grain of salt.

After all, Prince Charles has not publicly reacted to reports of Prince Harry’s memoir.

And the Duke of Sussex also made it clear that the book will focus on his life experiences. So, it’s not meant to bash his dad or any other member of the royal family.

As of late, Prince Charles and Prince Harry’s relationship remains estranged.

But royal commentator Angela Levin stressed that the father and son love each other. So, it’s only a matter of time before they sort their issues out and reconcile for good.
