Prince Harry is “insisting” that his highly-anticipated memoir will be “published in November”, royal biographer Tom Bower has claimed. The memoir was “tentatively” scheduled for later this year, although some reports have disputed the timeline.
The memoir, published by Penguin Random House, will be the “definitive account” of the Duke’s “experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons”.
It is ghost-written by Pulitzer Prize winner, JR Moehringer.
Prince Harry promised that the book would be “accurate and wholly truthful”, adding he was “excited” for people to read his own version of his life story.
The Duke of Sussex said in promotional material: “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 learnt — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
He 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 first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
However, following the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, last week, further speculation surrounded whether the memoir would hit the shelves in the next few months.
But royal expert Tom Bower has claimed that the Duke of Sussex is “insisting” that the book goes on sale ahead of the Christmas period.
The author of the recently-released “Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the War between the Windsors”, told GB News: “I’m told tonight that Harry is insisting that his book is published in November. It’s astonishing.

“So if Harry genuinely wants us to believe he has a desire to ‘honour’ his father, as he said today, he should tear up his lucrative contract with Penguin Random House and cancel the book.”
Mr Morgan referenced Prince Harry’s tribute to his grandmother, which was published on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell website.
He mentioned his father’s new position in the reflection of his grandmother’s life, saying that “we now honour my father in his new role as King Charles III”.
He lauded the late monarch as a “guiding compass” with her commitment to service and duty”.
He described her “unwavering grace and dignity” as her “everlasting legacy” in the moving tribute.
He added: “I cherish these times shared with you, and the many other special moments in between.
“You are already sorely missed, not just by us, but by the world over.
“And as it comes to first meetings, we now honour my father in his new role as King Charles III.
“Thank you for your commitment to service. Thank you for your sound advice. Thank you for your infectious smile.
“We, too, smile knowing that you and grandpa are reunited now, and both together in peace.”
