The spokesperson was responding to a report in the Daily Mail that the Duke of Sussex had signed a "a lucrative four-book deal — with the second due out only after the Queen has died."
Speculation began to swirl about further literary releases from Harry after his publisher Penguin Random House revealed on July 19 that he would be releasing an "accurate and wholly truthful" memoir in late 2022, months after the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.
"I'm writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become," Harry, 36, said in the announcement. "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."
Proceeds from the book and audiobook, which will cover his childhood in the public eye to his military duty in Afghanistan to becoming a husband to Meghan Markle and father to son Archie, 2, and daughter Lilibet, 1 month — will be donated to charity.
