Prince Harry is opening up about royal life like never before.
The Duke of Sussex is writing a memoir that will detail the “definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” according to a press release. Set for a late 2022 release, it will be published by Penguin Random House, with an accompanying audiobook edition. The duke will also be donating proceeds from book sales to charity.
The memoir will reportedly cover everything that has impacted Harry’s life, including being in the public eye, his dedication to service, his time in the military in Afghanistan, and his newfound joy as a husband to Duchess Meghan and becoming a father to their two children, Archie and Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” Harry wrote in a statement. “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. 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.”
News of the memoir comes months after Harry and Meghan sat down for a riveting tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, during which they detailed the immense pressure and scrutiny from within the royal institution that ultimately led to their landmark decision to step down from their senior roles in The Firm.

It is for that reason we’re excited to publish his honest and moving story.”
