Prince Harry's memoir may be centered on his own life, but that doesn't mean he'll be writing it alone.
- Prince Harry is set to release a memoir detailing his experience in the Royal Family throughout his lifetime.
- The Duke of Sussex has enlisted some expert help to pen the highly-anticipated memoir, which will hit shelves next year.
- In other royal news, this is how the Millennium Dome was set to be a tribute to Princess Diana following her tragic death.
Prince Harry is set to write a memoir next year, detailing the "experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him" over the four decades.
The highly anticipated book, which will be published by Penguin Random House in late 2022, explores the Duke of Sussex's "highs and lows" in the Royal Family—from his youth in the spotlight to his military service in Afghanistan. The announcement of the major project comes just a few months after his wife, Meghan Markle, released her own book, The Bench.
"I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," Harry revealed in a statement on the couple's Archwell website, before adding that he is "excited for people to read firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."
However, it looks like Harry won't be telling his story entirely in his own words. The father-of-two has hired esteemed ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer to help him with the creative process, in the hopes of delivering an "inspiring" and "courageous" narrative to his readers.
The US novelist holds a lofty reputation within the American literary circles for his writing talent, having won the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing back in 2000. He has also contributed to the autobiographies of other celebrities, including Shoe Dog by Nike's Phil Knight and tennis player Andre Agassi's Open.
Harry's decision to recruit the New Yorker journalist may also have been driven by his writing specialty. Moehringer's overarching theme was described by fellow writer Paige Williams in 2013 as "the search for identity and the meaning of manhood and fatherhood"—two issues the Duke has spoken candidly about in his Emmy-nominated Apple TV+ docuseries, The Me You Can't See.
Proceeds of the memoir, which has not yet been titled, will be given to charity. The release will see Harry join a litany of other Royal Family members who have penned books, including Kate Middleton, Pippa Middleton, and Prince Charles.
