36-year-old Prince Harry seems to have decided to follow the example of his wife, 39-year-old Meghan Markle, and try his hand at literature. Recall that the Duchess of Sussex recently released a children's book called "The Bench". The Duke of Sussex wants to take up an autobiography.
According to the AP news agency, the prince is already working with Penguin Random House on a book that is described in the release as " an intimate and sincere memoir."
For the first time, Prince Harry will share an exhaustive story about his experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons that helped him form a personality. The memoir will cover his life in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice brought him to the front line in Afghanistan, and the joy he found in becoming a husband and father,
- the release also says.
The publishers also promise that behind all the events that everyone seems to have known for a long time, the reader will be able to see an inspiring, bold and inspiring human story.
Prince Harry also issued a personal appeal in which he explained why he decided to take up his memoirs.
I am writing this not as the prince I was born, but as the person I have become. Over the years, I have had to play different roles, and I hope that by telling my story — ups and downs, mistakes, lessons learned — I can show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned in my life, and I am very glad that people will receive an accurate and completely truthful story about my life first-hand,

According to the publication Page Six, the manuscript was supposed to be submitted in August, but the deadline was shifted until October of this year.
The memoir is expected to be released in 2022, and Prince Harry will donate the proceeds to charity.
Although the exact content of the book is still unknown, the public is already wondering about what significant events in the history of the modern British monarchy Prince Harry will tell in detail. There are plenty of such topics: from the death of his mother, Princess Diana, to the scandalous "megzit" — the departure of Harry and Meghan to the United States, where they then gave an interview to Oprah Winfrey and denounced the monarchy. This interview, by the way, was recently nominated for an Emmy.
Insiders are already discussing how much detail he will tell about his family after a serious quarrel with William and a high-profile interview with Oprah, where he said that William and Charles are trapped in their roles. The last time he saw William was a few weeks ago at the opening of the Diana monument. Despite the fact that he looked cheerful with William, he jumped on a plane that day to go home,
