'I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become'

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle may have stepped down as royal family members and relocated to California, but that certainly doesn't stop them from making headlines.

In fact, this past month they have been all anyone can talk about.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced the arrival of their baby daughter, Lilibet Diana in June, before Prince Harry returned to the UK to reunite with Prince William to unveil a statue of Princess Diana in Kensington Palace's Sunken Gardens.

Since then, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's tell-all interview with Oprah, Oprah With Meghan and Harry: A CBS Primetime Special, has been nominated for an Emmy in the Outstanding Hosted Nonfiction Series Or Special category. And just last week, Meghan was announced as an executive producer on an exciting TV show.

This week, it was Prince Harry who made headlines as it was announced that the Duke of Sussex was writing a memoir about royal life, to be released next year. And all the proceeds are going to charity.

Yes, this is not a drill. Prince Harry is writing a tell-all book and after years of royal tensions and fans desperate to know the truth, it's sure to be a number one best seller.

What is Prince Harry’s book about?

Prince Harry's book will reportedly cover the Duke's life, from his childhood, through his years in the army, to his move away from royal life.

'I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.' announced the Duke of Sussex in the Penguin Random House press release this week. '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.'

When will Prince Harry’s book be released?

As per the press release by Penguin Random House, Prince Harry's memoir will be set for release in late 2022.

What have the royal family said about Prince Harry’s book?

The royal family has not yet responded to the news that Prince Harry is writing a memoir, but according to insider sources, they were unaware until the announcement was made.

Well this is exciting.
