Prince Harry will be looking to “foreground feelings of inadequacy” within the Royal Family in his new bombshell memoir, a professor has predicted, as he opens up about the “difficult position” he likely found himself in within The Firm. The Duke of Sussex, 38, announced last year he would be producing a tell-all account of his life with Penguin Random House.
He promised the memoir would be “accurate and wholly truthful”, adding he was “writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become”.
On Thursday, several new details about the upcoming memoir were released, including the title of the book.
‘Spare’ will hit the shelves on January 10, 2023, after being “tentatively” scheduled for later this year.
The title immediately prompted speculation over the content, with Professor Pauline Maclaran of Royal Holloway, University of London, telling Express.co.uk she believed the title was an apt choice for the long-awaited book.
“Harry’s choice of title, published almost two years to the day when the Sussexes announced they were stepping back only subsequently to step down as senior working royals, is ominous.”
‘Spare’ will be constructed with “raw, unflinching honesty”, according to a newly-launched website dedicated to the book.
It details how the memoir will be “full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief”.
It will be published in 16 languages, and will also be released as an audiobook read by Prince Harry.
The Duke will donate $1.5m of the profits to Sentebale, a charity established by Prince Harry and Prince Seeiso of Lesotho in 2006.
A further $300,000 has been earmarked for WellChild, of which the Duke has been a patron for 15 years.
