Prince Harry has not made any changes to his long-awaited diary since Prince Harry’s death His grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
Britain’s longest-reigning monarch died on September 8 at the age of 96. On October 27, Penguin Random House announced that the Duke of Sussex’s book, Spear, would be released on January 10.
“For all the press reporting about Harry supposedly ‘breaking down’ his family (spoiler alert: he didn’t), the book actually offers a more sympathetic look at the realities of their near-impossible existence,” Omid Scobie, best-selling author and editor on the Royal Family wrote in his column for Yahoo ! UK news friday.
“There were also no last-minute rewrites or edits after the Queen’s death,” Scobey said. “[The] The manuscript was completed about five months before the king’s death, a detail that will be acknowledged in a note at the beginning of the book.”
According to Scobey, the 38-year-old will talk about “being a backup,” or the younger brother of the future king, as well as his decision to start a new life in America with his family. The book will also detail his time in the army, as well as what it was like to be on the front lines in Afghanistan.
A spokesperson for the book revealed that it “will be released a month after the Sussexes’ release.” The highly anticipated Netflix documentary series is dropping. “
Scooby has admitted that members of the royal family are concerned about what Harry might reveal.
“No matter how carefully Harry shares parts of his story that include others, there is still a very real risk of serious negative backlash from the establishment and family,” Scobey wrote. Palace aides recently told me of the ‘real fear’ among senior members that this book would cause irreversible damage to reputation and relationships. But for Harry, [the book’s] The greater intent seems to make this risk worth the risk.”
Scooby shared, “Hundreds of journalists, including myself, have written transcripts and portions of the Duke’s story over the years.” “It is a story that, as a working member of the royal family, he has long been unable to tell himself. Now, having created an independent life far from the confines of the royal establishment, Harry finally has the opportunity to put it in the often inaccurately reported records Right. Freedom of speech. And no matter how you feel about a man, it’s hard not to agree that he should have a right to it.”
The publisher shared that Harry’s story will be told with “raw and unshakable honesty” and filled with “insight, revelation, self-examination and hard-earned wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief”.
“For Harry, this is finally his story,” the publisher added.
The memoir’s title is a clear reference to “Heir and Parts,” a phrase often used to describe the royal siblings. Harry’s brother William is now Prince of Wales and heir to the British throne. When Harry was born, he was directly behind William in the line of succession but has since been pushed down. Their father, King Charles IIIHe assumed the throne upon the death of the Queen.
Watchers of the royal family and the public have been endless speculation since the book was first announced in July 2021. Within hours of its announcement, Speer was in the top ten on Amazon.com’s bestseller list.
The Duke of Sussex had already revealed his willingness to the news industry to discuss his private life when he and His wife, Meghan Markle Oprah Winfrey interviewed Oprah Winfrey for a broadcast bombshell in March 2021. The pair spoke of the former American actress’s deep dissatisfaction with her new life in England, about alleged racism within the royal family, and Harry’s fear that his wife’s life might be in danger if they remained in his home country.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex quit their royal duties in 2020 and moved to the United States, telling Harry Winfrey that his family cut him off financially and that he helped pay for his security with money his mother left him. They have launched several initiatives, including a Netflix production deal and the nonprofit Archewell Foundation.
