The late Queen’s papers include her private thoughts on Princess Diana, Meghan and Harry’s exit from the Firm and Prince Andrew. King Charles is ‘fearful’ of the release of the late Queen’s secret diaries, as they could bring ‘shame’ on the Royal Family.
The monarch, 74, is hoping the papers, which contain details of Charles’ first marriage to Princess Diana and Princess Kate’s relationship with Prince William, will ‘never see the light of day’. Queen Elizabeth II, who died on September 8, 2022, is also believed to have written down her thoughts on the scandal involving her son, Prince Andrew, as well as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s exit from the Firm.
“Charles knows the papers are full of bombshells, and he’s relying on Paul to make sure some of them never see the light of day,” a source told In Touch Weekly, referring Elizabeth’s most trusted aide, Paul Whybrew. The source said the diaries “could seriously threaten the monarchy’s image. So the palace definitely doesn’t want certain things made known to the public.”
“He must be tempted to get rid of anything that will tarnish her memory or bring more shame on the family,” the insider said of Charles.The source revealed that British academics would not let Charles destroy the papers or manipulate the information included inside them.
They added: “Queen Elizabeth was one of the most important figures of the 20th century, and her papers are of immeasurable historical value. “So there are many people working to make sure they are properly preserved. And Charles should know better than anyone that the truth always comes out.”
