Prince Harry’s shock memoir news has spiked interest about the Sussexes in the United States media, which an entertainment correspondent believes is evidence that he’s been “embraced” as an American.
Harry and wife Meghan Markle stepped back as senior members of the Royal Family last year and subsequently moved across the pond to Montecito in California.
They have since made a number of TV appearances opening up about their life in the Firm.
But it is the media reaction to news Harry will be releasing a tell-all memoir that shows the real attitude towards him, according to an entertainment reporter.
Sam Rubin told Australia's Today Show: “I would have thought this is more of a fascination in the UK, more of a fascination in the Commonwealth, but people here, at least if you go by the media reaction, are apparently interested.
“Maybe they are being embraced now because of their residency here in California, maybe they are being embraced as Americans too, obviously she is, but we will see whenever this book comes out where this book sells but the lead story everywhere right now is that he has started to write a memoir.”
Harry will reportedly receive £20m for the book deal, which he will donate to charity.
In a statement, the Duke said: “I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.”
The 36-year-old has been secretly working on the book about life in the Royal Family over the past year, which he has now sold to Penguin Random House.
The first draft of the manuscript is thought to be almost completely written and is due to be submitted in October.
Harry has been outspoken in interviews that he has given in the US about how unhappy he was with life as a royal in the UK.
Notably he spoke to Oprah Winfrey about wanting to break the cycle and raise his family away from the media glare in the US.
