Lucy Middleton, Kate’s cousin who worked with Harry on the book “Spare”

The woman at this moment takes an “uncomfortable” position. She worked in the publishing industry and would have been aware of the contents of the Prince’s publication

What if the royal family had always known about the contents of Prince Harry’s “Spare” book? That’s the question the British media are asking after learning there is a woman linked to the Princess of Wales in an “awkward” position. Unbeknownst to the general public, Lucy Middleton, Kate Middleton’s first cousin, is making headlines. The daughter of Richard Middleton, brother of the Princess of Wales’ father, is a lawyer but not in a business. The young woman heads the legal department at Penguin Random House, which is none other than the publisher of Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare, and appears to specialize in defamation, privacy, and confidentiality. His professional status raises many questions among Britons. It is speculated that Kate Middleton’s cousin – given her job – was one of the first people to know that the Duke of Sussex was going to publish his autobiography. And he probably read the book as soon as it was finished, simply for legal reasons and to avoid problems for the publisher.

A situation in which work and private life are intertwined. In fact, Kate Middleton and her cousin are very close: in 2000, they spent three months together in Florence when Lucy Middleton was studying and Prince William’s wife was visiting. Not only that: the lawyer is also the godmother of Prince Louis, the third son of the Princess of Wales.
