SANTA BARBARA, CALIFORNIA: Prince Harry reportedly reached out to his friends and former girlfriends, asking them to contribute to his memoir. The Duke of Sussex wanted them to interact with his ghost writer JR Moehringer and share anecdotes of their lives together.

However, as reported by AceShowBiz, most of those he approached turned down his request to feature in his memoir, having spent the better half of their association with the Prince exercising caution over what they revealed about their bond with him. As a result, they may not be contributing to his new book 'Spare', which is scheduled to hit the shelves next year on January 10.

Husband to Meghan Markle and father to two children, Archie and Lilibet, Harry's autobiographical book is expected to be a bestseller. Earlier scheduled to be out this year, it was postponed following the death of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, with some last minute revisions and changes being made. Now, reports from The Sun reveal that the 38-year-old approached some of his former girlfriends, asking them to share their perspective with his ghost writer.

While it is unclear which of his exes he approached, the outlet reveals that at least one of them was rather offended by his request, having spent years being ordered not to speak to the media about their relationship. "Harry did reach out. Friends and girlfriends were polite and said they would think about it but ultimately most said no. It was felt to be kind of ironic that Harry would hit the roof if he ever had an inkling they spoke to the media, but now he wants them to when he needs their help," revealed a source to the outlet.

The book has reportedly seen its way back and forth between Harry, Moehringer and the publishers several times. "They wanted more than was in the first draft, and then Harry wanted to refine things after the Queen passed away," revealed the source, who added, "But there has been extra toing and froing that people don't know about. This is because the publishers wanted more areas covered and more detail on some things that were already included. There is a real concern that that means Harry has had to sex up the book and include revelations that even he might not even be that comfortable with."
