Prince Andrew ‘wants to set the record straight’ in Harry-style memoir

Disgraced royal Prince Andrew is keen to pen a memoir similar to Prince Harry's Spare, according to reports.

Back in January, the Duke of Sussex, 38, released his tell-all autobiography which was packed with bombshells and allegations against his dad King Charles III and brother, Prince William.

It's now been claimed that the 63 year old Duke of York wants to "set the record straight" after years of well-documented controversies, with US writer Daphne Barak and two publishers already believed to be in discussions over bringing his story to the page.

Andrew's book is described by a source as "Spare 2.0" and will "fully explain his association with Jeffrey Epstein and the resulting fallout".

"Andrew was the original spare and there's plenty of material. Compared to Harry, he has a far greater depth of history to draw from. It would also be a fascinating insight into the inner workings of the royals and their relationships," a source told MailOnline.

"Andrew needs to find ways of making money and supporting himself. It would be a huge wrench to leave Royal Lodge. But mainly he wants to set the record straight. If he doesn't change the narrative, no one else will."

However, the founder of New York-based PR company 360bespoke, Jeremy Murphy, has suggested that the dad-of-two might find it difficult to land a financially lucrative deal.

He said: "Many publishers are owned by huge corporations and the blowback from giving this man a platform would not go over well with a big publicly traded company. So I feel a deal would be with a smaller publisher, perhaps one looking to make a name for itself.

"And I do not think he would get a big advance. It would be likely a contract which rewarded him on the back end with royalties. I would be surprised if an advance was even a million dollars."

News of Andrew's potential memoir comes after it was revealed that a second TV interview could be on the cards for the Duke, following his catastrophic grilling on BBC's Newsnight four years ago.

According to a source, the royal has recently warmed to the idea of another broadcast sit-down, where he'd be "telling his side" of events.

"Nothing is off the table," they told The Mirror. "Andrew has been made to give up his job and now potentially his home. He feels there is little else to lose when he has already paid an awfully high price."
