Prince Harry may call the ‘racist royal’ he accused of asking about his son Archie’s skin color, experts warn.
Insiders fear the Duke of Sussex could use his upcoming memoir to expose his relative.
The 37-year-old would personally investigate Princess Diana’s life for the book, earning him an advance of £15 million from publishers.
But sources fear he could be forced to reveal ‘a lot’ about the fight and about his parents for the huge amount 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 talk about his parents’ marriage, the breakup, the affairs.
“That could be incredibly damaging to his father and Camilla. Charles will be king and Camilla will be queen.’
The author added: “The last thing they or the country needs is another fit of anger.”
The Duke is reportedly calling around Princess Diana’s old friends as he prepares the memoir.
It was previously believed that 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 that a member of the royal family asked what color Archie’s skin would be.
Prince William later denied claims that his family was racist while speaking to reporters at a London school.
But the couple, who live in LA after they left the firm, have been keeping an eye on the alleged perpetrator – leaving the public to speculate.
The Duke’s book isn’t the only thing Buckingham Palace is bracing for – magazine editor Tina Brown’s The Palace Papers will be out in April.
The sequel to Miss Brown’s bestseller The Diana Chronicles, released in 2007, is “full of nuanced details and searing insights,” according to Penguin.
The publisher said it would tell “the real story” of the royal family of the 25 years since Princess Diana’s death.
The title will “irrevocably change the way readers perceive and understand the royal family,” it added.

The book is said to follow the Queen’s “loosing grip” on the monarchy and is based on the “years of research and intimate access” of the former editor of Vanity Fair.
It will cover allegations surrounding Prince Andrew’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein and Harry and Meghan’s decision to step down as senior royals.
Miss Brown wrote on Twitter yesterday: “Excited to announce my new book… read how the monarchy tried to keep itself alive amid explosive headlines.”
In July, it was announced that Harry has been writing a memoir for almost a year.
It will be released in late 2022 and risks being as inflammatory as the couple’s interview with Oprah Winfrey in March.
Ben Brusey, publisher of Century, an imprint of Penguin Books that also publishes Harry’s title, said The Palace Papers was a “tour de force.”
