PRINCE Harry won't criticise the Queen in his imminent memoir, Meghan Markle's close pal has claimed.
It had been feared the Duke of Sussex might be "disrespectful" towards Her Majesty during her Platinum Jubilee year, but Omid Scobie has insisted he will instead "celebrate" their close relationship.
Harry's bombshell book, timed for release later this year, will be a "wholly truthful" account of his life as a royal, culminating in his bitter Megxit split.
The 37-year-old has vowed to tell his story "not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become".
Royal experts predicted it could reflect badly on the Queen as she celebrates 70 years on the throne, with one anticipating it would "shake the monarchy to the core".
But friend of Meghan's Omid, who penned Megxit biography Finding Freedom, has claimed it will do quite the opposite.

He told the Royally Obsessed podcast: "Harry really is going out of his way to make sure that there isn't material in there [the book] that can be seen as negative towards the Queen or her reign in any way whatsoever.
"He really wants to celebrate her life and his relationship with her in that book.
"I think as much as the press want this to be a burn book and an attack on the institution, this is more just about his story.
"Of course, his story is so much more than just the few years of his life as the Duke of Sussex.
"I think for people expecting that warts and all moment, it's not going to happen. That said, it's still going to be fascinating."

In language bound to cause panic within the Firm, Harry promised to examine the "highs and lows" of his extraordinary life as a royal.
News of the tell-all tome was said to have blindsided his family as they had no idea it was being written.
And it has been a particular headache for Charles and Camilla as many worried he would dish the dirt on his turbulent relationship with the duchess.
Camilla entered Harry and Prince William’s lives shortly before their mother died and the trio endured a series of ups and downs.
Royal biographer Angela Levin said she believed Harry could blame his stepmother for his mental health problems in a "spiteful attack" for "stealing" Charles from Diana.
Angela, who spent a year with Harry for an authorised biography, told Talk Radio: "Harry‘s memoir is coming out at the end of the year.
"Anyone who is anyone is saying it’s going to attack Camilla and make her responsible for [his] mental health and how she stole his father from his mother."
The royal expert went on to claim the biography could be a form of "revenge" and be "spiteful" towards the royal family.
She added: "Prince Charles is very malleable because he loves Harry very much so he might be more inclined to let him have his way.
"But I think if he reads what he says about Camilla then he won't do that."
The Sun last month revealed how Charles had told aides he was worried his younger son's book would be an "excoriating takedown" of his wife — particularly in the early years of their romance.
A source said: "There are concerns about Harry’s recollections of Camilla’s entry into the Royal Family, and how her long-running romance with Charles damaged him from a young age.
"Harry is fiercely loyal and protective of his late mother and her legacy, and didn’t approve of Camilla sweeping in as the great love of his father’s life.
"Understandably he found those early years incredibly difficult, and he might publicly blame Camilla for much of what he believes went wrong in his childhood, and the trauma the whole situation caused."
The source added Charles is "deeply protective of Camilla" and the "last thing he needs" is an "excoriating takedown of her at a time when people have finally taken her to their hearts" – after his mother announced she would one day be Queen.
