The feud between Prince Harry and the royal family continues to become more layered, and after it was recently revealed that the Prince has been working on a tell-all memoir over the last year about his life as royalty, even more secrets are seemingly about to come to the surface.
The memoir, although still unclear on a release date, was reportedly sold to Penguin Random House for publishing, and the deadline for the first draft is in October. A source for Page Six revealed that Harry is working with ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer on the novel, with the first draft almost complete despite its October deadline.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man, I have become,” Harry said following the release of the news. “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 continued, “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.”
Page Six also obtained a brief synopsis from the publisher which read, “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.”
The memoir will be published by Penguin Random House UK, and the company has revealed that the Prince intends on donating the proceeds from the book to charity. With a hesitant release date of late 2022, the memoir is sure to take a magnified look at the controversy that has swirled around Prince Harry since his leave from the royal family with his wife, Meghan Markle, in January 2020. Scheduled to be released in both novel and audio form, it’s safe to say the memoir will be one of the most buzzed-about books of next year.
