The memoir would cover Harry’s 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, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, “one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story,” the publisher added.

Prince Harry, in a statement Monday, wrote: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

“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.”

Penguin Random House said that the proceeds from the book would be donated to charity.

Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, shocked the world with their decision in early 2020 to split with the royal family and relocate to America.

In March, the couple sat for a bombshell interview with US talk show host Oprah Winfrey, triggering the royal family’s biggest crisis since Harry’s mother died in a car crash in 1997.

During the two-hour sit-down, viewed by more than 17 million people in the US and over 11 million in Britain, Harry and Meghan said racism had played a part in them quitting the UK for North America.
