Prince Harry was defended by Precious Muir during a discussion of his memoir entitled “Spare” which is due to be released early next year. Ms Muir blasted the former Daily Star overnight editor for his “negative” views about the Duke of Sussex, insisting that Princess Diana would be “more than proud” of her son.
The book is said to be an “accurate and wholly truthful” account of Harry’s life experiences, though some believe that the title reveals that the book shows the Duke’s sense of “deep shame”.
Royal biographer Angela Levin told The Sun: “It tells you what he thinks about himself with some great deep shame that somehow he didn’t feel he was better than that.
“Diana did her absolute best [so] that he wouldn’t feel like that. She tried to tell him there were more options, more things would be open to him.”
Despite these comments on the potential self-depricating views Harry may have held or still holds about his role in the Royal Family, Ms Muir believes the memoir is his “time to shine”.
She accused GB News host Patrick Christy’s of being “quite negative” about the book and said, “I don’t think it’s the right thing to do”.
She added: “You’ve not even read the book yet.
“You have to give him a chance and that’s the problem.”
It it widely thought that the title comes from the saying to have an “heir and a spare”, which would be William and Harry.

However, the former talkRADIO presenter was sceptical of the claim that the now Duke of Sussex was ever told that the Prince of Wales was ever the favourite.
He said: “I’m not sure he was ever told that William was the favourite. William was the next in line to the throne.
“Harry was never going to be King was he?”
Muir replied that the public have “always loved William growing up [and] the way he looked”.
She added: “We always thought he was the most handsome and now Harry’s flourished and become a more handsome guy and I feel like it’s his time to shine, right now it’s his time.”
The long-awaited book ‘Spare’ will be hitting shelves in January 2023 following a “tentative” rescheduling of its release date given the Queen’s passing and the expected bombshell comments in the text.
