Prince Harry is said to have completed his long-awaited autobiography, with the final manuscript already signed by lawyers. Penguin Random House aims to publish the book in late 2022 just in time for Thanksgiving and the Christmas holidays when it can be released as a gift. According to The Sun, ghostwriter JR Moehringer has apparently finished the manuscript in recent weeks.

A publishing source said "The manuscript is finished and has gone through all legal procedures. It’s gone and out of Harry’s hands. The publication date has been pushed back once, but is on track for the end of the year.” Harry says his autobiography will be 'heartfelt and intimate' but it is feared that the memoir could stoke new rifts within the Royal Family. The Prince has been researching the life of his mother Princess Diana and insiders worry he will expose step-mum Camilla, 75, who has been named future Queen Consort.

The Queen is the only member of the Royal Family to be notified by the Duke of Sussex of the upcoming memoir. Prince Harry signed the book deal last year, despite repeated calls to respect his family’s privacy. The Duke of Sussex said he wrote "not as the prince I was born, but as the man, I have become," revealing that he wanted to record "the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned."

The Queen is said to have been the only member of the Royal Family to be informed by the Duke of Sussex about the forthcoming memoir. How other senior royals feature in Prince Harry’s book, including his stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall has been the source of much speculation among commentators. It is also clear that he would like the book to portray his grandmother in a positive light. In a statement last year, Penguin Random House told the media that the upcoming book is: “In an intimate and heartfelt memoir of one of the most fascinating and influential world 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 shaped him. Covering 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, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous and uplifting human story."
