Ever since Prince Harry announced that he was writing a memoir, reports have pretty much unanimously suggested that the royal family is not excited about it. And, according to royal expert and author Andrew Morton, the royal family is right not to be excited about the book.

In a new interview with Us Weekly, Morton said that Harry's book is already finished and that his dad, Prince Charles, should be especially nervous about what's inside.

"If I was Prince Charles, I’d be looking for a pile of coats to hide under, Morton, who has written multiple royal biographies, including Diana: Her True Story in Her Own Words and Meghan and the Unmasking of the Monarchy, said. "I think we’re going to see Charles once more in the firing line."

Harry hasn't given too many details about the book or what it will cover specifically. In fact, he hasn't addressed the memoir publicly at all aside from the statement he released when it was announced in July.

"I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," Harry said in the statement. "I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."

According to Morton, that "accurate and wholly truthful" account of Harry's life will have Charles "looking for a hard hat" when the memoir comes out.

"The thing about Harry is that if you ask him a straight question, he’ll give you a straight answer," he added.

Not long after the memoir was announced, royal sources claimed that both Charles and Harry's older brother, Prince William, were "nervous" about what the book might reveal.

"The royal family is shaken up about the book," a source told Us Weekly at the time, adding that Charles and Will were "particularly concerned about what Harry will reveal."

"They haven’t received a copy yet and don’t know what to expect," the source explained. "It’s making them nervous."

Harry's memoir is set to be released sometime next year—and it sounds like the royals may have to wait for it to hit stores, just like the rest of us.
