“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.
“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”
Harry’s last project was a mental health docu-series on Apple TV+ entitled ‘The Me You Can’t See’.
Prince Harry told he could learn from Kate’s work: ‘Makes him look pitifully spoiled!’
Made in collaboration with Oprah Winfrey, the series explored different people’s struggles with mental health issues and included personal stories from Harry and Oprah themselves.
In a recent report, Max Pemberton, a British medical doctor, journalist and author, insisted one cannot help but contrast Harry’s recent endeavors with the Duchess of Cambridge’s mental health work.
The full-time psychiatrist in the National Health Service argued Prince Harry’s sister-in-law is an amazing asset to the Royal Family, as she is using her extraordinary reach and celebrity to champion the weakest, the dispossessed and the disenfranchised.
On the other hand, Prince Harry’s latest ventures seem to consist of “being paid eye-watering amounts of money to make a few documentaries and giving what are, in effect, promotional interviews which he manages to make entirely about him and his perceived struggles”.
He explained: “It makes him look pitifully spoiled, self-centred and out of touch.

“While various self-styled mental health campaigners (made up entirely of the metropolitan elite) have claimed he is speaking out about mental illness and this is a ‘Good Thing’, he seems to me to be doing little more than airing his dirty laundry in public and using mental health as a fig leaf.
“It’s not about other people, it’s all me, me, me. I don’t even think he is helping those with mental health problems – at least, not the ones that really need help.
“I fear that he’s putting people off getting therapy because he’s coming across as so bitter.”
He concluded in his report for The Spectator: “It would be far better to follow Kate’s lead.
“Rather than basking in the spotlight herself, she skilfully manages to reflect it on to others who otherwise might not have a platform.
“In doing this so deftly and with such grace, she is becoming the jewel in the Royal Family’s crown.”
The Duchess of Cambridge has long been a supporter and patron of children’s mental health and education.
To highlight Children’s Mental Health Week earlier this year, Kate took to social media and video calls to help make it the most successful one yet.

The Duchess has been the Royal Patron of Place2Be, a children’s mental health charity that provides counseling and emotional support to children and teachers, since 2013, and she helped launch the first-ever Children’s Mental Health Week in 2015.
The Duchess started out the week with a selfie video she shared on her social media platforms, in which she spoke about the importance of parental mental health, too, especially amid the COVID-19 crisis.
She encouraged parents and caregivers to make sure they look out for their own wellbeing, in order to be able to help care for children and their emotional health.
She also spoke one-on-one with teachers from Ribbon Academy in County Durham, to check in on how they were doing amid the coronavirus pandemic.
