In case you were wondering, the royals have absolutely no chill when it comes to Prince Harry's memoir. Despite the fact that they haven't publicly commented about the bombshell-filled book, Page Six reports that the royals have set up a "war room" to discuss details in Spare as they drop (reminder: the book was leaked almost a week ahead of its release date thanks to accidentally going on sale early in Spain).
According to Page Six, the royal family’s senior advisers set up their "war room" to "deal with any potential fallout" from the book. And the location of said war room was at Sandringham, where the family were gathered to celebrate Christmas (side note: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were actually invited to this Christmas event, but opted out).
According to ~insiders~ who spoke to the outlet, palace officials drew up a plan to deal with Harry's non-stop revelations—not just in his memoir Spare, but in his 60 minutes interview with Anderson Cooper, not to mention his ITV interview with Tom Bradby (both of which air/aired Sunday), not to mention his upcoming appearances on Good Morning America and The Late Show.
Apparently, the royals attempted to come up with all the stories Harry could potentially include in his book, and were "well aware" that he'd discuss Prince William allegedly attacking him in the kitchen during a conversation about Meghan.
“There were undoubtedly fears about what Harry was going to write, and in particular they were worried about the highly personal moments of their lives being retold," a source told Page Six of the meetings. “The King wanted to move ahead with the traditional ‘stiff upper lip’ attitude and follow in the Queen’s famous footsteps of ‘never complain, never explain’, but the Prince of Wales argued that perhaps the family should, in fact, go on the offensive and release a statement, much in the same way he said ‘We are very much not a racist family’, but he was overruled by his father.”
Guess that explains why we haven't gotten a statement...at least not yet.
