Prince Harry’s book ‘totally eclipsed’ by Michelle Obama in dual release | Royal | news

The Duke of Sussex’s memoir, published by Penguin Random House, is scheduled for publication in late 2022, although no date has been confirmed. But Michelle Obama, a friend of Harry and Meghan Markle and former US first lady, will also publish her latest autobiography this year.

Penguin Random House releases Mrs. Obama’s much-anticipated The Light We Carry on November 15, in time for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Speculation has it that Harry and Mrs. Obama’s books could now be released within a few weeks.

Penguin Random House announced in July last year that it would release Harry’s “literary memoirs” in late 2022.

An industry insider speculated if the clash explains why the publisher of both books has yet to announce when the account will go on sale.

Harry’s ghostwriter, JR Moehringer, is believed to have finished writing the book and it has been reviewed by attorneys.

It comes as Harry and Meghan are set to release a documentary for Netflix this year.

Netflix is ‚Äč‚Äčreportedly planning to release the Sussex series around the same time as their latest season of The Crown.

A source told Page Six, “There’s a lot to organize here and a lot of things at play” and that “Netflix wants to make sure they get in there and don’t get caught out by Harry’s upcoming memoir.”

The outlet reported that Meghan and Harry are aiming to release the series in 2023, which clashes with Netflix’s planned schedule.

Another source added: “[Netflix executives] knew the book was coming out, which is why they wanted the series this year.

“They don’t want to wait any longer.”

Royal commentator Daniela Elser has speculated that the Duke and Duchess series could contain “fresh bombshells”.

Ms Elser, writing for the New Zealand Herald, touted it as a likely blockbuster watch, asking: “Who won’t tune in to see… two recalcitrant individuals who have no problem talking about themselves?”

She added: “The sticking point here for Buckingham Palace isn’t decency or protocol or some sort of bead-clasping public dislike: it’s what Harry and Meghan might say, staring down the camera seriously, about.” his family back home in the UK and what new bombs they might drop on the Queen.

“Will we see footage of them looking distressed as they learn they will be barred from the balcony of Buckingham Palace during the Platinum Jubilee?

“Perhaps a crew was there when it was announced in February this year that Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, would become Queen? you have the idea

“Silence and tact are not traits we’ve seen from the Sussexes and with their possibly most valuable purser to be kept happy, what sort of revelations and stunning revelations could arrive?

“Neither the streaming service nor the couple can afford for this series not to be a smash hit.”
