It will detail Harry’s life from the moment his mother, Princess Diana died to present-day events, including his tumultuous relationship with the royal family, his life with Meghan Markle and becoming a father.

“As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling — and how their lives would play out from that point on,” said a statement on the memoir’s website.

“For Harry, this is that story at last. With its raw, unflinching honesty, ‘Spare’ is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”

The cover of the book is a close-up portrait shot of Prince Harry’s face.

The memoir will be published in eight languages in the U.K., Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa by Transworld, an arm of Penguin Random House U.K., followed by 15 additional translations worldwide.

Harry will use proceeds from the memoir to donate to charities he cares about. He has already donated $1.5 million to Sentebale, the organization he founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho as tribute to their mothers, supporting young people in Lesotho and Botswana affected by HIV and AIDS.

Hen has also donated 300,000 pounds to WellChild, a U.K.-based charity that supports children and young people with serious and complex health needs. Prince Harry has been a patron of the organization for 15 years.

It was announced last year in July that he was working on a book that was due to be published in November, but the release was pushed back because of Queen Elizabeth II’s death on Sept. 8.

A chapter will be dedicated to the late monarch’s funeral and the aftermath.
