Prince Harry’s book probably won’t come out this year | Entertainment
Prince Harry’s tell-all book isn’t due out this year.
The Duke of Sussex announced a year ago that he was writing an “intimate and heartfelt” autobiography and although Penguin Random House said at the time the book was “tentatively planned” for release in the second half of 2022 , it doesn’t appear on their slates of upcoming releases, sparking speculation it’s been pushed back to 2013 – or it will receive a surprise release with no warning.
A source told the Sun on Sunday newspaper: “If this book comes out this year as originally planned, it should be on the publisher’s marketing and promotional list – unless there is a surprise or there was a delay.
“His omission raised many eyebrows in royal circles.”
However, a spokesperson for the publishing house’s subsidiary, Transworld, insisted the omission from the listings was not necessarily significant.
They said, “We don’t put every book on the list, so there’s nothing to extrapolate from that.”
The release of the listings comes weeks after it was reported that there was “some uncertainty” over the book’s release date.
Announcing the book’s release last summer, Harry – who has children Archie, three, and Lili, 13 months, with wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex – vowed to write ‘not like the prince [he] was born but the man [he has] become” and promised to tell the “completely truthful” story of his life.
In a statement, he said: “I write this not as the prince that I was born, but as the man that I have become.
“I’ve worn many hats over the years, literally and figuratively, and I hope that by telling my story – the ups and downs, 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 am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned in my life so far and I look forward to people reading a first-hand account of my life that is accurate and completely truthful.”
The 37-year-old royal was set to write the book alongside ghostwriter JR Moehringer.
