The release of the first volume of Prince Harry’s memoirs, baptized Spare, was finally announced. While the meaning of the title of the book signed by the husband of Meghan Markle has already caused a lot of talk even before its publication, the photograph chosen for the cover is also causing ink to flow…
It was last spring that prince harry revealed that he had signed a contract for a project close to his heart, writing his memoirs. The result is a check that is difficult to refuse, containing many zeros and signed by one of the most important publishing houses on the planet. After many months of speculation and rumors Prince Harry’s memoirs are finally ready, and their release has been announced for January 10.
Something to put fans of British royalty on their teeth because despite some leaks, most of the confessions of Meghan Markle’s husband remains a great mystery for the time being. Will the latter settle accounts with the British monarchy? as he began to do in March 2021 during the Oprah Winfrey interview ? Will he declare war on the queen-consort Camila, her mother’s best enemy, or will he seek the path of reconciliation? One thing is certain, writing his pensum will not have been easy for the father who has seen the editor rejecting his first drafttoo watered down for his taste.
Everything has been carefully studied from the title to the smallest element in the photo
