Prince Harry’s upcoming book shows he is “still full of resentment”, a Royal Family expert has claimed, who has described the title Spare as “desperately sad”. The much-anticipated memoir will be released on January 10 and will detail with “raw unflinching honesty” his journey from “trauma to healing”, according to publisher Penguin Random House. The publisher said the book will be “full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief”.

The cover shows the Duke of Sussex looking directly into the camera, along with the words “Prince Harry” and “Spare”. The title is a reference to the phrase “the heir and the spare”

But royal commentator, journalist and biographer Angela Levin has pointed to a possible meaning behind the title of the upcoming book, while taking a thinly veiled swipe at the Duke of Sussex.

She wrote on Twitter: “Spare, the title of Harry’s book is desperately sad. Is that what he still thinks of himself?

“After all the therapy, a wife he worships and freedom he longed for, he is still full of resentment and out to get his own back. You can see it in his eyes on the cover.”

In a press release announcing the publication of the book, Penguin Random House said, “for Harry, this is his story at last”.

The publisher said: “Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the 20th century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow – and horror.

“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. For Harry, this is his story at last.

“With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”

A promotional website for the new book has also been set up, with publisher Penguin saying Harry will be supporting British charities with donations from the proceeds, including Sentebale and WellChild.

When the Duke of Sussex first announced details of the book last year, he said in a statement: “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become.

“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.

“I’m deeply grateful for the opportunity to share what I’ve learned over the course of my life so far and excited for people to read a first-hand account of my life that’s accurate and wholly truthful.”

In early 2020, Harry and his wife Meghan Markle relinquished their roles as working members of the Royal Family when they moved from the UK to the US with their young son Archie Harrison.

But around a year later in March 2021, they sat down for a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey that sent shockwaves through royal circles.

During the interview, the couple alleged there had been “several conversations” within the Royal Family about the skin tone of their soon-to-be-born baby, Archie.

Prince William quickly leapt to the defence of the monarchy, and later stressed: “We are very much not a racist family.”

During the interview with Oprah, the couple also accused the Royal Family of ignored Meghan’s cries for mental health support and had left her feeling suicidal.

Buckingham Palace issued a rare public statement, which said the claims were “concerning” and would be “addressed by the family privately”.
