Prince Harry’s memoir, “Spare”, will hit the shelves on January 10, 2023, as stated by its publisher in a press release on Thursday.
“We are excited to announce the remarkably personal and emotionally powerful story of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex,” Penguin Random House said on Twitter.
Introduction about the book on its official website says: “It was one of the most searing images of the twentieth 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 that story at last.”
The publisher guarantees “raw, unflinching honesty” in the 38-year-old’s book, which is also “full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.”
In a personal statement in July, the Duke of Sussex expressed his purpose for creating the piece, saying, “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.”
The publisher also announced on the website that some of the prince’s proceeds from the book, amounting to $1,500,000, have been donated to Sentebale, an organization he founded with Prince Seeiso in their mothers’ legacies, which supports vulnerable children and young people in Lesotho and Botswana affected by HIV/AIDS.
Along with this, an additional £300,000 from his earnings will be donated to the non-profit organization WellChild, which makes it possible for children and young people with complex health needs to be cared for at home instead of at the hospital, wherever possible.
