Prince Harry’s highly-anticipated 416-page book was originally set for release in 2022. Despite much speculation over a delay, and why the book failed to appear on the publisher’s list of upcoming releases earlier this year, the official title and release date was announced last week. However, upon speaking about the pending release, Royally Obsessed podcast host Rachel Bowie claimed that Prince Harry was worried throughout the entire process.

Ms Bowie told fellow co-host Roberta Fiorito that, according to New York Times, Harry has “gotten cold feet at numerous points throughout this process and there was a delay.”

She said: “Although it wasn’t as significant of a delay, I think I’m curious if the Royal Family across the pond is officially shaking in their boots.

“I think that’s what everyone there, up in arms, you know, that’s the main headline over there.”

Ms Fiorito added: “I think a lot of his military service, that the world did not know about, was kept under wraps for so long.”

She added that that was “in agreement with the media”.

She continues: “Obviously, we are excited if there’s juicy tea to be spilled in the book.

“But it’s also important that we are going to learn from Harry what that was like for Harry.”

Due to its January release, the book will miss out on the Christmas market.

The memoir will be available simultaneously in 16 languages, with the title Spare sparking further controversy over the highly-charged translation in some countries.

The title, referring to the saying “the heir and the spare” in English, was rendered as Life in the Shadows in Spanish, while some countries opted to translate it as Leftover.

The chosen publisher, Penguin Random House, also revealed that Harry, himself, will read the “intimate and heartfelt” memoir for the audiobook version.

Penguin Random House also claims the book will be written with “raw, unflinching honesty”.

The publisher’s website reveals that “for the first time”, Harry will share “the moment he and his brother William, young princes still, walked behind their mother’s coffin” at her funeral in 1997, just six days after her tragic death in Paris.

Harry was only 12 at the time of Diana’s death on August 31, 1997.

The read will also cover Harry’s “dedication to service” within the military and the joys that he has found in being a husband and father.
