The Prince, 37, is reported to have received a multimillion-pound advance for the memoir. He is believed to be working on it with the American ghostwriter, JR Moehringer, who helped pen Andre Agassi’s autobiography. Harry is said to be donating the "proceeds" to charity.

While the reason for the delay is unclear, there had been some concerns it would overshadow the Queen's upcoming Platinum Jubilee celebrations – something that is no longer a concern.

It also means that the celebrations could now also feature in the memoir, given that it is the first time the Sussexes will have been reunited with the royal family in more than two years.

Speaking previously about his "accurate and wholly truthful" memoir, Harry said: "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 learnt — I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think."
