In addition to telling us his side of the story, Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir will benefit charities as well. While participating in a polo game for Sentable on August 19, the Duke of Sussex announced that he would donate $ 1.5 million of the proceeds of his memoirs to the charity. “This is one of several donations I would like to make to charity, and I am grateful to be able to give back to the children and communities in desperate need,” Harry said in a statement.

Harry founded Sentable with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006 to help children affected by the HIV / AIDS epidemic in Africa. “Our realigned mission at Sentebale is to address the urgent needs of vulnerable children in southern Africa, provide them with access to vital health services, receive the care they need and build skills to be more resilient and self-sufficient in the future,” added Harry added. In response to Harry’s donation, the charity expressed its appreciation in a statement: “Sentebale is grateful for his personal contribution, which enables the organization to continue to work fully and to continue to provide important services to vulnerable youth in southern Africa.”

The memoir, set to be released in 2022, will cover everything from Harry’s childhood and time in the military to his marriage to Meghan Markle. “I’ve worn many hats over the years, literally and figuratively, and I hope that by telling my story – the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show them that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think, “he said in a statement announcing the book.” I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I have learned in my life so far. and I am pleased that people are reading a first hand account of my life that is accurate and completely truthful. “
