The Queen could be rocked by more Royal family revelations as former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown unveiled her new biography.

Ms Brown, who is the author behind New York Times bestseller The Diana Chronicles, said she has based her royal scoop on “years of research and intimate access”.

The Palace Papers: Inside the House of Windsor – The Truth and the Turmoil will hit bookshelves next April.

Its timely arrival will coincide with Prince Harry’s memoir set to be published in late 2022; both books have been penned in for release during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year.

“The Palace Papers reveals how the royal family reinvented itself after the traumatic years when Diana’s blazing celebrity ripped through the House of Windsor like a comet,” noted the announcement.

Ms Brown’s explosive book will look at the events surrounding the Royal family which have followed Diana’s death.

Notably it will include the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s dramatic step down from their senior royal roles to start a new life across the pond in the US.

Former editor of Tatler and The New Yorker Ms Brown said: “This is, above all, the survival story of a family in which the pre-eminence of duty is in constant tension with the very human desires of love, ambition and the longing for escape. Writing it has been a fascinating journey.”

Her book The Diana Chronicles was written from more than 250 interviews within the Princess of Wales’ inner circle.

Ben Brusey, the publishing director at Century, said of her new book: “The Palace Papers is a tour de force in every sense – the most insightful, enjoyable and substantial account of the Royal family I have read.

“Only Tina Brown could have written it, with her impeccable sources and deep knowledge of the institution. Tina masterfully takes readers inside the palace walls, and to a place of understanding that Netflix’s The Crown could only dream of. Publishing in extraordinary times for the Royal family, I know The Palace Papers will add richly to the public debate.”
