Prince Harry is done letting British tabloids tell his story.
In an announcement on July 19, Prince Harry revealed he’s writing a memoir that is set to hit shelves in late 2022. According to People, proceeds from both the book and audiobook will be donated.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” he said 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.”
The Duke of Sussex 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.”
The statement from Penguin Random House described the memoir as “an intimate and heartfelt memoir” spanning the royal’s childhood, military service, up through his marriage to Meghan Markle, and the birth of his two children: two-year-old Archie and one-month-old Lilibet. The publisher promises “the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him.”
Though Prince Harry has recently been opening up a great deal about his personal life in an Emmy-nominated interview with Oprah Winfrey as well as their mental health series, The Me You Can’t See, people on Twitter are excited to hear even more of the duke’s story without liberties or tabloid spin.
On Twitter user posted a video of a frantic group writing, “The Crown writing room getting ready for the new seasons now they can use Prince Harry’s memoir for accuracy.”
Is it 2022 yet?
