Jennie Bond claimed that the title was “damning” and compared the memoir to a boxer coming out into a ring and giving his opponent a massive left hook. Prince Harry’s shocking book title drop has sent royal fans into a frenzy as many have been waiting for his highly anticipated memoir for some time now. The book will be simultaneously released on January 10, 2023 in 16 languages.
Ms Bond told BBC Breakfast: “Oof, oh when I saw it and I heard that word ‘spare’ I thought you know…this is pretty damning straight away, so stark isn’t it?
“And there is nothing conciliatory about it, as you say the publicity says ‘raw, unflinching.’
“I think it’s a bit like a boxer coming out into the ring with a massive left hook, really flooring the opposition.
“This is not what the Palace were hoping to hear.”

The title is believed to be a reference to the nickname Princess Diana used to reference her children when they were younger, with Prince William as “the heir” and Prince Harry as “the spare.”
Prince Harry’s book deal is part of a £35million deal with Penguin Random House.
The memoir has been highly anticipated for some time now, as it was originally scheduled to be released earlier in 2022 but was then delayed again following the Queen’s death in September.
Prince Harry has already donated a large amount to a charity which helps those suffering from HIV/AIDS in Botswana.

And the prince is set to donate more to a non-profit organisation called WellChild.
Announcing the title of the book, Penguin Round House 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.

Prince Harry’s memoir will raise concerns among royal files, who are believed to be expecting backlash over potential allegations the Duke of Sussex could make.
