Prince Harry had reportedly asked his pals and former girlfriends to help his forthcoming memoir by contributing but most allegedly refused.

It has now been claimed that Harry wanted to get close friends and former partners to open up about him to his ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer.

According to a source, some of the people who were contacted were shocked by Harry asking them to contribute and some reportedly refused to talk about their time with the Duke of Sussex.

Although none of the people asked have been named, it is thought that Harry’s past girlfriends Chelsy Davy and actress Cressida Bonas may have been asked.

An insider told The Sun: "Harry did reach out. Friends and girlfriends were polite and said they would think about it but ultimately most said No.

"It was felt to be kind of ironic that Harry would hit the roof if he ever had an inkling they spoke to the media, but now he wants them to when he needs their help."

The book had originally been expected this year but the tragic death of Queen Elizabeth II is thought to have led to changes.

Markus Dohle, CEO at Penguin Random House said: "Penguin Random House is honoured to be publishing Prince Harry’s candid and emotionally powerful story for readers everywhere.
