From Shock to Recovery Prince Harry Makes Headlines after the “Spare”

‘Spare’, Prince Harry’s new memoir, will be released in 2023

The release date of Prince Harry’s memoir has finally been announced, January 10. In one of the most high-profile upheavals in decades for the royal family, it was three years ago that he and his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, announced they would be “stepping back” from their roles as senior members.

Penguin Random House will release Spare in 16 languages. Publishers say the book is a “landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the power of love over grief”.

An original release date of late 2022 was planned for the book. Harry’s grandmother, Elizabeth II, died on September 8 at the age of 96. According to Elizabeth A. Harris and Alexandra Alter of the New York Times, Spare has had “cold feet at various points” about his memoir’s contents and the book has “been shrouded in rumors, delays, and secrecy”.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan Markle, have not been deterred from speaking candidly in recent years despite their cold feet. Harry and Meghan moved to the United States in 2020 after stepping back from royal duties. The couple revealed that the royal family had cut off the couple financially in an interview with Oprah Winfrey the following year.

Diana’s tragic death will be a central subject of Spare, according to Penguin Random House. “As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling—and how their lives would play out from that point on,” writes the publishing house. “For Harry, this is his story at last”.

When the book was first announced in 2021, Harry released a statement explaining his motivations. “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become,” he said. “I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and my hope is that in telling my story—the highs and lows, the mistakes, the lessons learned—I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think”.
