He and Meghan Markle this week issued a statement saying they were “heartbroken and scared” over the humanitarian crises unfolding in Afghanistan and Haiti. Harry has a special interest in the Central Asian country having served there during his time in the Army. The statement was characteristic of the pair’s interest in human rights and striving to make the world a better place, also reflected in the countless projects they are working on.

As part of their multimillion Netflix and Spotify deals, they promised to make original content that will bring “inspiration” to the masses.

Harry is also working on his much anticipated memoir, announced last month, set to be published next year.

It took many by surprise, with royal watchers uncertain of the book’s contents, suggesting it could be similar in theme to his recent revelatory broadcast interviews.

While intrigue in the world of royal commentators abounds, a recent YouGov poll suggested that neither Britons or Americans were much interested in the memoir.

According to the survey, released in July, just nine percent of Americans said they were “very interested” in the book while 16 percent said they were “fairly interested”.

This totals to just 25 percent of the 7,585 people surveyed across the country being interested in the book.

More tellingly, 51 percent of respondents said they were “not interested at all”, while a lesser 17 percent said they were “not very interested”.

In the UK, an even bigger proportion of those surveyed said they were not interested at all in the memoir – 67 percent.

Brutally, just three percent of Brits said they were “very interested”.

Reports suggest that Harry’s family are anxious about the memoir.

His father, Prince Charles, and brother, Prince William, are said to be “nervous” about what it might contain.

Last month, a source close to the situation said the Firm as a whole was “shaken up” by the announcement.

They told US Weekly: “They [Charles and William] haven’t received a copy yet and don’t know what to expect.

“It’s making them nervous.”

In a statement announcing the book, Harry said: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.”

He continued: “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 book deal is thought to be worth around £14.5million.

However, proceeds will go to charity.

Penguin Random House, the memoir’s, said it will include “the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape” Harry’s point of view.

It continued: “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.”
