Ronald Reagan’s daughter thinks Prince Harry will regret the Tell-All book

  • Ronald Reagan’s daughter Patti Davis said she thinks Prince Harry may regret writing his memoir “Save”.
  • In an op-ed for The New York Times, Davis compared “Spare” to her own narrative about her family.
  • Davis wrote that she wished she could have told her younger self to “be quiet” and gave Harry similar advice.

Patti Davis, the daughter of former President Ronald Reagan and author of her own tell-all book, said she thinks Prince Harry may regret writing his memoir “Save.”

In an op-ed for The New York Times published Saturday, Davis compared Harry’s upcoming book to the fallout from her 1992 autobiography “The Way I See It.” The memoir is described on Goodreads as “an insider’s view of growing up Reagan, detailing her father’s emotional abandonment of her, her mother’s cruelty, and the family’s bitter rivalry, uncontrollable rage, and dark secrets.”

Davis has spoken out about criticizing and coming to terms with her famous parents, telling USA Today in 2004 that she “had to run away to come home.”

She wrote Saturday that she apologized to her father for writing the book that “slammed open the gates of our troubled family life” after he was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 1994. Davis also noted that she was reminded of that moment while reading “Save ยป.

“My reasoning for writing a book I now wish I hadn’t written was very similar to what I understand to be Harry’s reasoning. I wanted to tell the truth, I wanted to set the record straight,” she wrote in the paper. . “Naively, I thought that if I put my own feelings and my own truth out there for the world to read, my family might understand me better too.”

The author also said she believes “William’s veracity also needs to be considered” when discussing the royal family’s tense interactions, such as the alleged physical altercation between Harry and Prince William in 2019.

“Harry has written that, after William hit him, William asked Harry to hit him back, which he refused to do. But by writing about the fight, he has done just that,” Davis wrote.

After releasing “The Way I See It,” Davis wrote that she learned that “not every truth needs to be told to the whole world.” She said she wished she could tell her younger self to “be quiet” until she could “stand back and look at things from a wider lens” – and she gave the same advice to the Duke of Sussex.

“Harry seems to be operating from the proposition that ‘Silence is not an option,'” she concluded. “I would respectfully suggest to him that it is.”

Although “Spare” is due to be published worldwide on Tuesday, excerpts from the book began to appear on Thursday after a Spanish-language version accidentally went on sale in Spain.

An unnamed source “with knowledge of the book” who spoke to The Sunday Times in December said the memoir is “tough on William”.

“I personally don’t see how Harry and William will be able to reconcile after this,” the source told the paper.
