'Harry will find it cold in Californian sunshine after the savagery of Spare'

When the harsh reality sets in that Prince Harry may have diminished his proudest achievement, the millions he pocketed from selling his memoir will be worthless.

The Invictus Games, the global sporting event for injured servicemen and women he personally established, already has an incredible legacy that remains his crowning glory.

But news that organisers and those heroic participants, who have already battled against the odds and could now face such uncertainty because of his words, will be a crushing blow that far exceeds the damage he has done to the family he left behind.

When the dust finally settles from the pure savagery of Spare, what on earth will be left for Prince Harry to salvage?

Amid the wasteland he has created between him and the family he claims to still care about, the Duke if Sussex is likely to find it’s pretty cold being stuck in the Californian sunshine.

With his refusal to say whether he will attend the King’s coronation in May, it is almost impossible to see why Harry would put himself through it.

Not only will he be unwelcome by the majority of his family, the public reaction to his memoir has been world’s apart from the popularity he once enjoyed as the “party prince”, or more recently half of the royal family’s bright young couple with wife Meghan by his side.

Harry’s repeated insistence that the “ball is in their court” has haunting echoes of his father-in-law Thomas Markle’s much maligned tactic to engage with his daughter after selling her out for money.

Just as Meghan would attest to those bridges being well and truly burned, Harry is likely to find himself treading a similar path.

Accusing William of assault, “wicked stepmother” Camilla, stuck up Kate and railing against an emotionless “old man” in his father don’t bode well for the sit down Harry professes to long for.

The continued trauma committed by the central characters and the unending grief of his late mother’s is something Harry needs to confront before his two worlds have a chance to come together.

He may of course find comfort in the millions he has amassed during his brief time out of the royal fold, for many in royal circles believe that is all that is left.

Buckingham Palace’s refusal to respond to the litany of allegations and hurtful jibes revealed in Harry’s book will prove to be an exact course.

These are difficult times for the House of Windsor, in a period when they are still grieving the late Queen and after a time where infighting and scandal has dominated proceedings.

In the infancy of his reign and before he has even been crowned, King Charles is fighting fires on multiple fronts.

Not only trying to contain his family from completely imploding, on the horizon is a collective of countries who will be weighing up their options and future union with the British monarchy.

While it may be argued the exasperation of living in the royal bubble and the lack of support from his family led Harry to this juncture, the perceived pettiness in revealing the most intimate of details will be hard to forgive.
