What Is Prince Harry’s Memoir About?

While there are many unauthorized biographies online about Prince Harry and the Royal Family, Spare is the first official memoir from the Duke of Sussex. Written by the Prince himself, the book touches on everything from his childhood growing up as part of the Royal Family, to the death of his mother Princess Diana, to his new life in America with wife Meghan Markle and their two kids.

In a clip from his 60 Minutes interview promoting the book, Harry talks about how Buckingham Palace failed to protect his family from the relentless tabloid attacks. A new excerpt from the book, meantime, reveals that Harry and Prince William got into a heated argument before Harry says his brother “came at me” and “knocked me to the floor.”

Publishers Penguin Random House say the book is Harry’s “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,” reads an accompanying book description, with the publishers adding that this is a “personal and emotionally powerful” story.

The title of the book Spare comes from the phrase “heir and spare,” which many believe reflects Harry’s feelings towards his older brother Prince William, who is first in line for King Charles III’s throne.

Spare is also not to be confused with Harry: A Biography of a Prince, which was released in 2018 with Harry’s knowledge, though not authorized by the Prince. Spare gives Harry a chance to finally tell his story on his own terms and timeline.



While Biography of a Prince was written about Harry, Spare is told from the Prince’s own perspective — and in his own words. It’s one of the only books about the Royal Family that is authorized and written by someone from the inner circle.
