Meghan Markle is not writing a memoir.

Following the announcement that Prince Harry's memoir "Spare" would be released on January 10, 2023, there were speculations that Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, would start writing her memoir as well.

According to a Daily Mail source, Meghan Markle is contemplating being wholly open and honest about her time in the royal spotlight. The Duchess of Sussex is a successful author, and her children's book "The Bench" which was released in June 2021. According to the reports, Meghan Markle's speculated future memoir will be influenced by Prince Harry's multi-book publishing contract with Penguin Random House,  and is now gearing up for his memoir Spare's release. The Duke of Sussex's book will be published on January 10.

The memoir is believed to cover everything from Harry's public early life to his service in the military in Afghanistan and his transformation into a husband to Markle and father to Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1. The tell-all was meant to be released in 2022, but it was delayed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8. The memoir of the Duke of Sussex has already made a lot of headlines as a couple of extracts from it have been published.

A Hollywood agent shared with Daily Mail that they would be surprised if the Duchess of Sussex does not go ahead and publish her own story for the world. The source added that sure "Spare" is Prince Harry's opportunity to tell his story, but she also has a compelling one after all, how so many actresses marry princes? The insider continued that if Meghan Markle has political aspirations, it would make far more sense. They noted that Presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Donald Trump all wrote books highlighting their beliefs before entering politics

Another source said that Meghan fully intends to write this book and leave no stone unturned; it's just a matter of when and how long she wishes to hold out in order to safeguard what's left of her and Harry's connection with King Charles. According to the source, Harry and Meghan still are thinking about what they get out of the monarchy in terms of titles and perks. But nothing can be said for sure as of now. 

Spare transports the audience to one of the 20th century's most shocking images: two young princes (Prince Harry and Prince William) trying to walk behind their mother's (late Princess Diana) casket as the world was watching in sorrow—and horror. According to the press release of the memoir, billions wondered what the princes must have been thinking and feelingand how their lives would play out from that point on adding that the memoir is Prince Harry's story at long last, complete with "aw, unflinching honesty.

Katie Nicholl, ET's royal expert, revealed in October 2022 that the royal family's main concern is the duke's autobiography. The upcoming autobiography poses the greatest threat and concern, definitely for the royals. Katie said that the royals are concerned because they don't know what to expect from what may be a shocking book noting that there are grumblings that Prince Harry is making last-minute changes to the book. Also, in brightness of the queen's death, perhaps the sensitivity of a few of the passages he's written about. Katie Nicholl went on to say that the autobiography has been shrouded in secrecy, and she believes that it is a case of belts and braces, and the palace is truly preparing for the release.

The memoir will be released nearly 18 months after Penguin Random House first revealed its multi-book deal with the Duke of Sussex, which will begin in July 2021. It will be released in 16 languages around the world, with an audiobook read by Prince Harry himself. The book's profits earned will benefit a variety of charities, including Sentebale and WellChild, to which Harry has already made significant contributions.

Prince Harry's Spare will be out on 10th January 2023 but a couple of extracts from the tell-all memoir have been published that have gone ahead to make headlines for the royal family.
