Prince Harry to publish literary memoir in late 2022
Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand's book Finding Freedom will be released next month with an updated epilogue detailing the past, turbulent months in the life of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Among the announced key additions to the book, there is Meghan and Harry's reaction to the death of Prince Philip.
It will also recount "Meghan's emotional healing journey from losing a child to the birth of their daughter".
And it will touch upon the behind the scenes details of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's interview with Oprah Winfrey.
Publisher HarperCollins said in a statement: "Behind the scenes of Harry and Meghan's groundbreaking interview with Oprah, details behind the couple's move to California (and) the various philanthropic and business endeavours the Sussexes have been involved with since their move and what's to come with Archewell Productions."
It will also feature: "The continuous challenges the couple face regarding privacy and the British press (and) the heartbreak the couple felt over Prince Philip's death."

The passing of the Duke of Edinburgh on April 9 prompted Prince Harry's return to the UK.
The Duke of Sussex travelled across the pond alone and self-isolated for five days at Frogmore Cottage before being able to attend the funeral service.
The Duchess of Sussex, heavily pregnant with Lilibet Diana, was advised by her doctor not to undertake a long haul flight and had to remain in California with the couple's son Archie Harrison.
However, she paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh with a splendid wreath placed at St George's Chapel which presented a note handwritten by her.

Prior to the funeral, Prince Harry paid tribute to his "witty" grandfather with a poignant and deeply personal statement.
The Duke of Sussex said Prince Philip "was authentically himself, with a seriously sharp wit".
He added: "He will be remembered as the longest-reigning consort to the Monarch, a decorated serviceman, a Prince and a Duke.
"But to me, like many of you who have lost a loved one or grandparent over the pain of this past year, he was my grandpa: master of the barbecue, legend of banter, and cheeky right 'til the end."

The updated version of Finding Freedom, which some critics described as a "hagiography" of the Sussexes, will be released on August 31 - the 24th anniversary of the death of Princess Diana.

It also detailed Meghan and Harry's decision to step down as senior royals and the months they spent in Canada between late 2019 and early spring 2020.

Earlier this month, he also announced he is working on a memoir covering his whole life from childhood to fatherhood.
Speaking about this work in progress, the Duke of Sussex said: "I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.
"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.
"I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a firsthand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful."
