A royal account! Prince Harry will soon be able to add “published author” to his resume.
The Duke of Sussex, 36, announced on Monday, July 19, that he is working on a literary memoir to be published by Penguin Random House in late 2022.
“I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” the Invictus Games founder 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. 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.”
According to a press release, Harry will donate proceeds from the as-yet-untitled book to charity. “All of us at Penguin Random House are thrilled to publish Prince Harry’s literary memoir and have him join the world-renowned leaders, icons, and change-makers we have been privileged to publish over the years,” Markus Dohle, the CEO of PRH, said in a statement. “Prince Harry has harnessed his extraordinary life experience as a prince, a soldier, and a knowledgeable advocate for social issues, establishing himself as a global leader recognized for his courage and openness. It is for that reason we’re excited to publish his honest and moving story.”
