Publisher Description

It was one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother's coffin as the world watched in sorrow-and horror. As Princess Diana was laid to rest, billions wondered what Prince William and Prince Harry must be thinking and feeling-and how their lives would play out from that point on.

For Harry, this is that story at last.

Before losing his mother, twelve-year-old Prince Harry was known as the carefree one, the happy-go-lucky Spare to the more serious Heir. Grief changed everything. He struggled at school, struggled with anger, with loneliness-and, because he blamed the press for his mother's death, he struggled to accept life in the spotlight.

At twenty-one, he joined the British Army. The discipline gave him structure, and two combat tours made him a hero at home. But he soon felt more lost than ever, suffering from post-traumatic stress and prone to crippling panic attacks. Above all, he couldn't find true love.

Then he met Meghan. The world was swept away by the couple's cinematic romance and rejoiced in their fairy-tale wedding. But from the beginning, Harry and Meghan were preyed upon by the press, subjected to waves of abuse, racism, and lies. Watching his wife suffer, their safety and mental health at risk, Harry saw no other way to prevent the tragedy of history repeating itself but to flee his mother country. Over the centuries, leaving the Royal Family was an act few had dared. The last to try, in fact, had been his mother. . . .

For the first time, Prince Harry tells his own story, chronicling his journey with raw, unflinching honesty. A landmark publication, Spare is full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.

Thank you, Harry

What a pleasant Memoire to read. I felt warmth throughout the whole book and was happy to get to know Harry from his own words. He is honest, sincere, self-critical… I also learned a lot about the military and helicopters!
Nicely written, keeps the reader wondering about the next event, chapter, very entertaining and makes you understand Harry better. At the end, we are all people with our human problems, just at different waves. I hope Harry will continue his writing, share more about whatever subject interests him and takes the reader on that journey with him.
I’m sad that the book is finished. Thank you Harry for the journey.

Is Any Of It True

According to the book Harry remembers being at Eton on a warm day when he received news that he great-grandmother, The Queen Mother, had sadly passed away.
However, in real life, it is well known that he was actually on a skiing holiday in Switzerland with his father and brother.
In what world is it acceptable to publish into the public record that your brother is circumcised? If a Doctor had released this information they would face disciplinary action.
Nasty book from a nasty man.
