Harry recalls moment William attacked him after argument about Meghan
The world waited with baited breath for the release of Prince Harry’s memoir, Spare.
There haven’t been many figures who have generated headlines for the world’s media quite like Harry and Meghan Markle have over the past few years.
The high-profile couple made waves when they officially stepped back from their royal duties, but one might have been forgiven for believing they were doing so with the aim of staying out of the public eye.
Forgiven, but entirely wrong.
No, since Harry and Meghan’s move to the US, they’ve been anything but timid as concerns their willingness to speak out about their former lives.
Yet all that has gone before might pale in comparison to the revelations made within the pages of Harry’s memoir, Spare.
To say that Harry’s new book is highly-anticipated is a gross understatement. Over the past two years, he’s talked relatively openly about the traumas he sought to escape when he and Meghan left the Royal Family.
First came the infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey, where Harry and Meghan opened all kinds of worm cans with regards to the treatment they had been subjected to after tying the knot in England.
Amongst other things, the couple made accusations of racism, while Meghan even admitted to having harbored suicidal thoughts. Interestingly, she also claimed she had received no help at all from the Firm while enduring her toughest period.
Indeed, Harry was equally as vocal, stating that his aim was to protect his wife from suffering the same fate as his late mother, Diana.
Yet even the most pro-Harry factions could not have predicted the doggedness with which he would go on the attack, not just taking aim at the mainstream media in Britain, but also at members of his own family.
Mere months after the aforementioned Oprah interview, it became public knowledge that Harry was working on a tell-all memoir that would dish the dirt on all the controversies that had been kept under wraps from his life as a working royal.
“Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him,” Random House said in the initial press release, teasing the book as an “honest and captivating personal portrait.”
New details about Harry’s book were disclosed recently, including that it would be named Spare. There has been speculation that it might address Harry’s “spare” role as the second son of a king. Other reports suggest the meaning behind it focuses on that fact that he has been “spared” from the Royal Family now that he has left.
Harry reportedly paid $20 million upfront for ‘Spare’
It was generally rumored that the memoir would paint a negative picture of Harry’s family. According to Page Six sources, the book is set to contain several truth bombs that members of the Royal Family would rather keep quiet.
“It’s juicy, that’s for sure,” one NY publishing source told the news outlet.
