Is Prince Harry ready to tell all? It sure seems like it!
According to the outlet, the book has been sold to Penguin Random House, and Harry has been working alongside ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer for quite some time.
Harry has reportedly finish his first draft, and the release date is tentatively scheduled for late 2022.
“In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him," a blurb from the publisher reads.
The tome will cover “his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father” and promises “an honest and captivating personal portrait.”
"I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story — the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think," he said in a press release. "I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."
"All of us at Penguin Random House are thrilled to publish Prince Harry's literary memoir and have him join the world-renowned leaders, icons, and change-makers we have been privileged to publish over the years," Markus Dohle, CEO of Penguin Random House, said.
Despite working with big streamers such as AppleTV+ and Netflix, Harry, 36, will be donating the proceeds to charity.
It's unclear what topics Harry will cover, but the dad-of-two may want to share what really happened when he decided to leave the royal family and what went down behind closed doors while living in the palace.
“Insiders are already discussing how much he’ll go in detail about his family after a huge fallout with William and accusing William and Charles of being trapped in their roles on the bombshell Oprah interview,” a source said. “He last saw William a few weeks ago at Diana's statue unveiling where, despite sharing a laugh with William, he jumped on a plane that afternoon to go home.”
This is bad news for Prince William, who has reportedly been "dreading" what Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, will do next.
"Ultimately, they have to find a way to do their work in L.A. while not trading in on the royal brand. Prince Harry hasn't exactly been subtle. He's revealed to the world that he pretty much hates his family and the whole system is rotten to the core, but by continually talking about the royals, they're cashing in on the brand," expert Duncan Larcombe said.
