The Duke of Sussex announced a deal with Penguin Random House publishers and said he would be revealing his “highs and lows” in the memoir. Proceeds will be donated to charity but specific details about the amount has yet to be revealed.

But now, GB News presenter Colin Brazier has lashed out at the 36-year-old and said the Queen has not felt the need to detail her life despite living “three times as long”.

Mr Brazier tweeted: “Oh Harry, leave the ghost-written autobiographies to the footballers.

“Your Granny hasn’t felt the need to tell ‘her story’ having lived three times as long as you.”

A statement about the book was shared on Archewell.com and said the memoir will represent the “definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses and life lessons that have helped shape” Harry.

The book will cover “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”.

The memoir, which will also be published in an audiobook version, is to offer an “honest and captivating personal portrait”.

Speaking about the book, Harry 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.”

Markus Dohle, CEO of Penguin Random House, said: “All of us at Penguin Random House are thrilled to publish Prince Harry’s literary memoir and have him join the world-renowned leaders, icons, and change-makers we have been privileged to publish over the years.

“Prince Harry has harnessed his extraordinary life experience as a prince, a soldier, and a knowledgeable advocate for social issues, establishing himself as a global leader recognised for his courage and openness.

“It is for that reason we’re excited to publish his honest and moving story.”

The Duke of Sussex told his family “very recently” about the book before news of his memoir broke.

A spokesperson for Harry added that he would not be expected to obtain permission for the project from Buckingham Palace.

Sources closed to Prince Harry’s father, Prince Charles, said he was “surprised” by the news.

A senior Clarence House aide told the Mirror: “The Prince of Wales loves his children very much and remains focused on his work to ensure we have a sustainable future for the next generation including his own children, and grandchildren.”

This is likely to raise concerns within the Royal Family as it comes following Harry and Meghan’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey back in March this year.

The couple made several shocking allegations against the Royal Family including claiming there were conversations about Archie’s skin colour.

Meghan also claimed she was suicidal during her time as a member of the Royal Family.

Since then, Harry has also taken part in a podcast and a documentary series where he has hit out at the Royal Family.

In May, the Duke of Sussex appeared on the Armchair Expert podcast where he said he does not want to pass on pain from his own experience to his son Archie and daughter, Lilibet.

In a documentary series, called ‘The Me You Can’t See’, Harry also opened up about his experiences with mental health, claiming his suffering goes back to the “same people, the same business model and the same industry”.
