Get ready for the most explosive book of the decade. Page Six has learned that Prince Harry has been secretly writing a memoir for nearly a year, and that he’s sold it to Penguin Random House.
Insiders tell us that Harry — whose schism with the British Royal Family has turned the institution on its head and created a cultural storm on both sides of the Atlantic — has been working on the book with power-ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer.
Pulitzer-winner Moehringer has previously written memoirs for tennis legend Andre Agassi and Nike co-founder, Phil Knight, as well as his own autobiography, “The Tender Bar,” which is currently being made into a movie by George Clooney.
We’re told that a manuscript was due to be turned in in August, but as the lives of Harry and wife Meghan Markle continue to be engulfed in a swirl of drama, the deadline for the sizzling tome has been pushed back until October.
But we’re told the first draft is almost completely written.
A blurb from the publisher, seen by Page Six, says, “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 (no-doubt vast) advance was, but according to the publisher, Harry 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.
But if the project gives the Duke of Sussex an unfettered opportunity to give his side of the story of “Megxit” — the couple’s 2019 decision to step back from royal duties — or settle the score on how the death of his mother, Princess Diana, was handled by the Royals, it will doubtless make history.
Other topics that would leave Brits and Americas alike clamoring for the inside scoop might include his infamous decision to wear a Nazi uniform to a Halloween party in 2005 and the tortured relationship with his father, Prince Charles.
“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.”
