Prince Harry may name the ‘Royal racist’ who he accused of asking about his son Archie’s skin colour, experts warn.
Insiders fear the Duke of Sussex could use his upcoming memoir to expose his family member.
The 37-year-old is said to be personally looking into Princess Diana‘s life for the book – which has landed him a £15million advance from publishers.
But sources fear he could be forced to disclose ‘a lot’ about the row as well as about his parents for the huge sum he is being paid.

Royal expert Penny Junor told the Sun: ‘The publishers are going to want a lot for their money, such as naming this so-called racist.
‘He’s researching his mother’s life so he’s going to be talking about his parents’ marriage, the break up, the affairs.
‘That could be incredibly damaging for his father and Camilla. Charles is going to be king and Camilla his queen.’
The author added: ‘The last thing they or the country needs is another upsurge of anger.’
The Duke is reportedly ringing around Princess Diana’s old friends as he prepares the memoir.
It was previously believed much of the work would be done by a ghostwriter, leaving Palace sources ‘surprised’ by his hands-on approach.

Prince Harry claimed in his interview with Meghan and Oprah Winfrey a member of the Royal Family asked about what colour Archie’s skin would be.
Prince William later denied the claims his family was racist while talking to reporters at a school in London.
But the couple, who live in LA after leaving the Firm have kept a lid on the alleged culprit – leaving the public to speculate.
The Duke’s book is not the only one Buckingham Palace is bracing for – Magazine editor Tina Brown’s The Palace Papers will be published in April.
The sequel to Miss Brown’s bestseller The Diana Chronicles, which was released in 2007, is ‘full of nuanced details and searing insight’, according to Penguin.
The publisher said it would tell ‘the real story’ of the Royal Family over the 25 years since the death of Princess Diana.
The title will ‘irrevocably change the way readers perceive and understand the Royal Family’, it added.

The book is said to track the Queen’s ‘loosening grip’ on the monarchy and is based on the former Vanity Fair editor’s ‘years of research and intimate access’.
It will cover allegations surrounding Prince Andrew’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein and Harry and Meghan’s decision to quit as senior royals.

It was revealed in July that Harry has been writing a memoir for almost a year.
It is due to be released in late 2022 and threatens to be as incendiary as the couple’s Oprah Winfrey interview in March.
Ben Brusey, publishing director at Century, an imprint of Penguin Books which is also publishing Harry’s title, said The Palace Papers was a ‘tour de force’.
