The Queen’s Trusted Aide to Release New Book to Rival Prince Harry’s
Prince Harry is said to have clashed with royal dresser Angela Kelly over the choice of tiara during his wedding to former American actress Meghan Markle. The Duke reportedly yelled “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets” at the Queen’s closest confidante at the time.
Now the duo are set to clash again with the timing of their book releases, only that this time, one of them has got the Queen’s blessings.
Angela Kelly to Release a Tell-all Book with the Queen’s Blessings Ahead of Platinum Jubilee
Queen Elizabeth has given her dresser, Angela Kelly, who has been in her service for 28 years a go ahead order to release a new chapter that will describe her life during lockdown. The picture book, “The Other Side of the Coin”, originally published in 2019, will be getting republished with the new chapter by HaperCollins in time for the Queen’s “once-in-a-lifetime” Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
The new chapter will be revealing more of royal secrets from behind Palace doors. It will reportedly share a behind-the-scenes look at how Prince Philip’s scaled-back funeral went down.
The book will be released next month — just months before Harry’s memoir, due out this autumn.
The Queen was living in Windsor under restrictions when Harry and Meghan sat down with Oprah for their explosive interview, which saw them make several unproven accusations against the royal family.
Now Angela and Harry are set to go head to head, as they allegedly did four years ago, with their book releases almost coinciding.
It was claimed that stressed-out Harry yelled “what Meghan wants, Meghan gets” at Angela during his and Meghan’s wedding preparations.
The moment is also recounted in Omid Scobie and Carolyn Duran’s book, “Finding Freedom”, but instead, the writers blamed Angela Kelly and accused her of purposely dragging her feet in helping the duchess out.
Angela’s official title in the royal household is Personal Advisor to Her Majesty (The Queen’s Wardrobe), but she is also believed to be one of the Queen’s most trusted aide.
She was also a part of HMS Bubble and her new book will cover that time during royal family life.

HarperNonFiction publishing director Katya Shipster said: “We wanted to commemorate the extraordinary occasion of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee with this beautiful new edition, as well as bring the content of the book right up to date following the unprecedented events of the past two years.
“It tells the story of the royal bubble as well as the lengths Angela and the Royal Household went to, to ensure the safety of our Monarch.”
