The Duke of Sussex cannot be silenced: A still-untitled Prince Harry book—a memoir and personal account of life lessons—is set for a 2022 release from Penguin Random House. Naturally, royal fans are hungry to hear what he has to say next. 

In a press release on the Archewell Foundation website, Harry wrote: "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."

The news comes on the heels of a very significant year for the 36-year-old, following Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Oprah Winfrey interview, the premiere of the Oprah and Prince Harry mental health documentary series for Apple TV+, a rockstar greeting at the Vax Live concert, and the arrival of his daughter, Lilibet Diana. 

Though Prince Harry has spoken candidly and publicly addressed challenges he's faced, which has been met with praise from followers, he has magnified a rift between him and the British monarchy. Despite it all, he seems to persevere and embrace his new lifestyle separate from the throne. 

His family, however, doesn't appear to have much to say about the creative undertaking. According to multiple sources, Buckingham Palace responded to inquiries about the memoir by saying: "Any clarification about the book would be a question for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.” Allegedly, Prince Harry did not ask for permission to write the autobiography but did give his relatives a heads up about his plans.

According to the press release, Harry's memoir—which will also be available in audio format—will take a look back at his childhood, time in the military, and even his current life as a husband and father. In true Harry fashion, he's set on giving back, as proceeds from the book will be going towards charity. 

"I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," he further stated. 

It hasn't always been an easy go for the Duke of Sussex, but his untitled work, which has allegedly been written with help from ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer, will bring his truth to the forefront. Expect the soon-to-be bestseller to arrive on shelves late next year.
