Prince Harry has revealed he is releasing a memoir written "as the man I have become" – amid claims he could use it to settle old scores with the Royal Family.

The Duke of Sussex, 36, has been secretly working on the book for nearly a year which he has sold to Penguin Random House, Page Six reports.

He said he was "excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful".

The duke is reportedly working with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer.

The first draft of the manuscript is now almost completely written before a deadline in October, it was reported.

The duke on Monday said: "I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

"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.”

In a blurb from the publisher, it states: "In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him."

It says the book will cover “his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father” and promises “an honest and captivating personal portrait.”

Transworld, an imprint of Penguin Random House UK, will publish the book in the United Kingdom. It’ll also be released as an audio book.

The release date for this publication is tentatively scheduled for late 2022.

It’s so far unclear what the advance was, but according to the publisher, Harry, 36, will be donating the proceeds to charity — despite having recently inked lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify.

It’s unclear exactly what the book will cover.

“Insiders are already discussing how much he’ll go in detail about his family after a huge fallout with William and accusing William and Charles of being trapped in their roles on the bombshell Oprah interview,” said a source.

“He last saw William a few weeks ago at Diana statue unveiling where, despite sharing a laugh with William, he jumped on a plane that afternoon to go home.”
