In a statement released on the Archewell website, Prince 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.”
In the days that followed the announcement, the news spread across social media and generated commentary from ‘royal reporters’.
But how impactful was the news? The research states that Prince Harry’s memoir has had sustained a lot of interest in the media.
Even a month later between August 23–29, the potential reach for the memoir was 3.1 Billion.
Within the above time frame, the top 3 countries that had interest in the memoir were the following:

But why will Prince Harry’s memoir be an international best seller?
For years, Prince Harry has been one of the most popular members of the royal family and already has been a subject of a number of best selling books.
This combined with the fact that memoirs are always popular because people enjoy reading first-person accounts of other people’s lives.
Meaning the odds that Prince Harry’s memoirs will be an international best seller are high.
Also according to The National Post. An “International Bestseller” appears on lists across at least two countries. Additionally, to make some best-seller lists, you have to sell at least 5,000–10,000.
Prince Harry’s memoir will be tentatively released in late 2022.
But Prince Harry’s continued success since stepping down as an senior royal, comes at a bad time for the royal family.
In 2021 alone, there have been almost weekly negative headlines about the royal family.
What were the headlines about?
The main focus has been the allegations against Prince Andrew and Queen Elizabeth’s decision to back her son.
