THE Royal Family are bracing themselves for an explosive Meghan memoir which could lift the lid on some of their biggest secrets.
Fears of a “tell-all” book grew after she admitted for the first time writing a daily journal while she was a working royal.

And she hinted at a bombshell book after revealing she had not signed a non-disclosure agreement.
Last year we dubbed her Little Miss Forgetful after she admitted to a judge she had “forgotten” evidence that she had helped brief the authors of controversial biography Finding Freedom. Meghan had to apologise to the High Court.
Now that she is preparing to produce a memoir we have labelled her Little Miss Trouble.

Harry, 37, has finished his own memoir, which is due to be released within months. A source close to his wife said: “I’d be very surprised if Meghan wasn’t writing a book.”
Rumours of the journal charting Meghan’s life as a working royal have circulated for many years. It is also claimed she wrote a diary after taking down her blog The Tig in 2017.

She told the US magazine she stumbled on the journal while looking through drawers stuffed with belongings at Frogmore Cottage when she flew back with Harry for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
Meghan said: “You go back and you open drawers and you’re like, Oh my gosh. This is what I was writing in my journal there?”
Last night an insider said Meghan — who now lives in Montecito, California, with Harry and their two children — kept a diary the whole time.
They added: “Harry and Meghan were told to ignore social media and newspapers but sometimes staff would say to them, ‘so sorry about what was written the other day’, and she would hit the roof. She wrote it all in her diary as an insurance policy.
“If it ever saw the light of day it would surely be dynamite. By the sounds of it, this journal was rediscovered this summer, boxed up and shipped back to Montecito.”
The Duchess’s interview with The Cut contained a swathe of attacks on the Royal Family and her former life in Britain and she heavily hinted that she had plenty more to say.
She said: “It’s interesting, I’ve never had to sign anything that restricts me from talking.”
Royal expert and author Margaret Holder said Meghan’s private journal would be the most explosive royal book since Andrew Morton’s seismic Diana: Her True Story 30 years ago.
She said: “The revelation that Meghan rediscovered what she was writing in her journal at Frogmore Cottage must trigger warning signals to the Royal Family.
“For Meghan, a book about her time with the royals offers a great opportunity for settling scores, naming those who offended her, and hitting back at a system she didn’t understand and was unwilling to learn.
If it ever saw the light of day it would surely be dynamite. By the sounds of it, this journal was rediscovered this summer, boxed up and shipped back to Montecito.
“She had enough time in the royal fold to learn secrets, some decades old, which could cause embarrassment and heartache for the Queen and her family, but could earn a fortune for Meghan.”
The Duchess spoke of her joy in keeping a journal on podcast Teenage Therapy in October 2020.
She said: “I think journaling is a really powerful thing. It allows me to reflect on where I’ve come from and with that comes a lot of perspective.”
News of the diary comes 18 months after Harry and Meghan dropped bombshells in their Oprah Winfrey TV interview, which included allegations that an unnamed royal questioned their son Archie’s skin colour.
Meghan launched a fresh broadside against the British establishment yesterday by claiming during her latest Spotify podcast that her life became “focused on race” only when she started dating Harry.
She was also left stunned and sounded offended after her guest, singer Mariah Carey, branded her a “diva”.
Mariah, 53, said: “You give us diva moments sometimes Meghan.”
After the Duchess protested, the star added: “Don’t even act like — don’t act like. It’s also the visual. It’s the visual.”
The exchange clearly unsettled Meghan who later remarked: “It was all going swimmingly, I mean really well. Until that moment happened, which I don’t know about you, but it stopped me in my tracks . . . when she called me a diva!”
Meghan added: “I started to sweat a little bit. I started squirming in my chair in this quiet revolt, like, wait, wait, no, what? How? But? How could you? That’s not true, that’s not . . . Why would you say that?
“My mind genuinely was just spinning with what nonsense she must have read or clicked on to make her say that.”

DUCHESS CLAIMS V REALITY
A STRING of allegations made by Meghan in her interview with The Cut have been attacked as false.
CLAIM: Meghan said that she would not be able to do the school run in the UK without being hounded by 40 photographers.
REALITY: There are strict rules governing the press which prevent photos being taken of children at school. Any pictures taken of royal children are usually pre-arranged with one photographer and one film camera present.
CLAIM: Meghan claimed that her children have been called the N-word by the British press.
REALITY: It was unclear who the unsubstantiated claim was aimed at. British newspapers have never used the highly offensive word to describe Meghan or her children.
