GMB presenter Susanna Reid has defended Prince Harry’s decision to write a new book about his life.
The 36-year-old father, who quit royal life for good last year, will release the memoir late next year.
So what did Susanna Reid say on GMB?
The pair were also joined by royal biographer Duncan Larcombe.
Discussing the new book, Susanna said: “Look, I don’t think it’s unreasonable for Prince Harry to define the kind of privacy that he wants.
He wants to be in charge of his own story
“He’s talked about how he found it really traumatic just constantly being covered by paps and the experience that his mother had.
“I think it’s a little disingenuous when people say, ‘Oh you wanted privacy and you went away and now you’re doing a book.'”
She added: “In their words, he wants to tell his own truth, he wants to be in charge of his own story.”
Meanwhile, Ben appeared to agree with Susanna’s comments.
He waded in: “There is a huge part of his story that people will be keen to know about…
“…as a child growing up, going to school, being in the army, the hugely important role he played in the army that we’re all very proud of him for doing.”
However, Susanna’s former co-host Piers Morgan shared a very different view – and we’re not surprised!
Piers tweeted yesterday: “Ready to tell his story? [crying with laughter emojis].
“Prince Privacy hasn’t stopped yapping, whining and trashing his family all bloody year.”
Prince Harry will share "mistakes and lessons learned" during his life in a memoir to be published next year.

Did viewers agree with Susanna?
It appears the segment received a mixed reaction from viewers.
On Twitter, one said: “Good example of how to stay OUT of limelight Harry… BORE OFF!”
In addition, a second wrote: “Boring. Prince Harry has become utterly irrelevant now. He had a purpose and structure in the Royal family. Now just another Hollywood type.”
However, one disagreed: “Well done Harry, tell it as it is. Shake em all up!”
Another shared: “They have no say in his life. Perhaps shouldn’t of taken his Military Honours from him.”
Harry’s book is said to be an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of his life.
In a statement, the Duke announced: “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.”
