The Sun’s royal editor Duncan Larcombe is leaving the newspaper to write a book about Prince Harry after securing a deal with Harper Collins and will not be returning to the paper.

Larcombe is leaving the paper more than a year after he was cleared of any charges over allegations that he paid an army officer for pictures of Princes William and Harry while they were cadets at Sandhurst military college.

Larcombe was one of 18 journalists on the paper who were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to corrupt and cause misconduct in a public office, all of whom were acquitted.

The investigation went on for over three years before reaching a verdict. Larcombe returned to work at the Sun last November.

He is now writing a book on Prince Harry after securing a deal with Harper Collins, and will not return to the tabloid following the publication of the book, as part of what is being described as an “amicable” arrangement, the Guardian reported.
