Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s year ahead – tell-all book, UK visit and new TV show

It’s fair to say that 2021 has been a rollercoaster of a year for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Big moments included their bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview, the birth of their daughter Lilibet, their New York tour and Meghan’s appearance on The Ellen Show.

And it seems that 2022 is also going to be another big one for the couple with several big projects set to come to fruition.

But it’s not all work, there will also be some big family moments for Harry and Meghan to also look forward to in the next 12 months.

So how is 2022 shaping up for the pair? Here we take a look…

Prince Harry’s tell-all book

In August of this year, Prince Harry raised eyebrows when he announced he would be releasing a tell-all memoir of his life.

And in 2022, that book, which reportedly sparked a “tsunami of fear” among the royals, will be released.

In a statement confirming the book, the duke said: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man, I have become.

“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.

A blurb from publisher Penguin Random House read: “In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential global figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him.

“Covering his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the frontlines of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, on that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous and uplifting human story.”

A release date has yet to be announced and it has not been confirmed exactly what will be in the book.

However, it has been speculated that he could talk about the relationship between him and his father Prince Charles and brother Prince William, how he quit the royal family and the so-called “royal racist” after he and Meghan claimed that Harry had “conversations” within the royal household about how dark son Archie’s skin might have been before he was born.

Meghan’s children’s cartoon

In 2021, Meghan released her first children’s book, which was called The Bench.

And in 2022, her children’s animated series called Pearl could be set for release on Netflix.

Harry and Meghan have signed a multi-million pound deal with Netflix and Meghan is an executive producer on the cartoon alongside Sir Elton John’s husband David Furnish.

The show, described as a family series, will focus on the adventures of a 12-year-old girl called Pearl.

The young character will be inspired by a variety of influential women from throughout history.

Invictus Games and Heart of Invictus Netflix documentary

April will see the return of Harry’s hugely successful Invictus Games for injured servicemen and women.

There’s no doubt that Harry will make the trip to the Hague in the Netherlands for the tournament, which has twice been postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

And later in the year, it could be that Harry’s Netflix production Heart of Invictus could be released.

The series will focus on injured service members around the globe preparing for the 2022 Invictus Games.

The episodes will chart the journey of the competitors as they train up, the organisers as they set to work making the planned games a reality, and also the national teams working with both sides for the delayed games next Spring.

In a statement about the show, Prince Harry said: “Since the very first Invictus Games back in 2014, we knew that each competitor would contribute in their own exceptional way to a mosaic of resilience, determination, and resolve.

“This series will give communities around the world a window into the moving and uplifting stories of these competitors on their path to the Netherlands next year.”

UK visit for Queen’s Jubilee?

Just like Harry and Meghan, the Queen is also looking forward to a bumper-packed 2022, when she will mark 70 years on the throne.

The bulk of the celebrations will take place in early June, with an extended four-day bank holiday weekend set to take place.

The whole Royal Family will be out in force to mark the Queen’s Platinium Jubilee and it could be that Harry and Meghan return to the UK to mark the weekend.

However, one royal expert warned that given Harry’s book is due out next year, it could make make relations with his family awkward if he decides to attend.

Sunday Times royal editor Roya Nikkhah told True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat: “The publishers have been very vague about the timing of that book and have said it will be out towards the end of next year, which would be after the main Jubilee celebrations.

“If they come over for the Jubilee next year, which I’m sure they will be part of it somehow, it’s going to be quite weird with the royal family sort of thinking, what is coming in a couple of month’s time and what bombs might drop.

“You say he is going to have to come out with a lot of details in the book, but I don’t think Harry will need a huge amount of encouragement to do that.

“We’ve seen in the last year, he is very open about wanting to talk more about his life and how he feels and his emotions, so I think for him he sees it as a big opportunity to say some more of what he wants to say.”

Not only will the Queen’s platinum jubilee celebrations take place in June – there will be another celebration in the Sussex household.

That’s because Harry and Meghan’s daughter Lilibet will celebrate her first birthday.

Lilibet, whose middle name is Diana, was born on June 4, 2021, in Santa Barbara, with her name a tribute to her great-grandmother the Queen.

Fans got their first glimpse of her recently in the Sussexes Christmas card, which featured a beautiful snap of her alongside her big brother Archie.

Another Spotify podcast?

As well as signing a big-money deal with Netflix, Harry and Meghan also signed a contract with Spotify.

The streaming platform announced in 2020 that it would host a full-scale launch from the couple throughout 2021 but they have only produced one 35-minute podcast episode.

Will it be that we get more Spotify podcasts from the couple in 2022?
