shocking revelations expected in January
After several postponements, Prince Harry will finally publish his memoirs, titled « Spare », on January 10, even before the coronation of his father, King Charles III, the publisher Penguin Random House announced on Thursday.
« We are delighted to announce the remarkably personal and emotionally powerful story of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, » the publisher tweeted.
The book is described, on the website created for him by the publisher, as an open window on how the prince reacted to the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and how this tragedy affected his life by the following.
“With its blunt and unflinching honesty, Spare is a work of reference filled with information, revelations, introspection and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.
The book was first announced in July 2021, with Penguin Random House promising « intimate and heartfelt memoirs » in which « Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of experiences, adventures, losses and lessons of life that helped to shape it ».
Explosive passages deleted from the book?
Spare will be released in the UK as well as Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India and South Africa, according to the publisher. The recipes for these memoirs, which will be published in 16 languages, including in French by the publisher Fayard, will be donated to British charities, specifies the publisher.
The book was due to be published in November, but was postponed due to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. Time also to remove some controversial passages, unflattering for Charles, Camilla or even William, reports the tabloid Page Six.
Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stunned the monarchy by leaving the royal family with a bang in early 2020 and moving to the United States, California.
During a sensational interview in March 2021, Harry and Meghan reported that an unnamed member of the royal family had expressed concern about the color of skin that their son Archie would have, before he was born, his mother being mixed-race.
