Prince Harry’s memoir postponed to ‘problem in America’ with Michelle Obama’s book – claim | royal | New

Prince Harry’s highly anticipated memoir, billed as a book of “raw and unflinching honesty”, will be published in the new year, it has been announced. Harry’s book is called Spare, a reference to the phrase “the heir and the spare” and will be released worldwide on January 10. But Daily Mail royal editor Rebecca English said it might not have been published by Christmas because of Michelle Obama’s new book. The Light We Carry will be released on November 15 this year.

Speaking to Palace Confidential, Ms English said: “It’s going to be published on January 10, which comes as a surprise to many in the publishing industry who thought they’d want to cash in on the Christmas rush.

“Someone I spoke to told me they would never hold something of this magnitude until January.

“I was told it was double because he asked to make changes, but I also think there’s a problem in America getting the raw materials to publish books.

“They also have Michelle Obama’s book and it might be an issue with the binding of the books.”

It was expected to hit libraries this fall, but there has been speculation that the date has been pushed back as a mark of respect after the Queen’s death, and is rumored to bring edits to the post and remove potentially harmful material.

But Buckingham Palace is still likely to be bracing for revelations that could be damaging to the monarchy and the father of Duke Charles, now king and at the start of his reign.

The memoir will be published by Penguin Random House, which said in a press release: “Spare immediately takes readers back to one of the most poignant images of the 20th century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind the coffin of their mother while the world watched in sadness – and horror.

“As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions of people wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would unfold from then on.

He could reveal which member of the monarchy made a racist comment about his unborn son Archie’s potential skin color or highlight his strained relationship with his father and his troubled times with his brother William, the Prince of Wales.

A key part of the Duke’s life is the breakdown of his parents’ marriage and the death of his mother Diana in a car accident in Paris in 1997.

Little is known about life behind palace walls for the Duke and his older brother William during this difficult time, with Harry only saying years later how he tried to block out the pain of losing his mother.

When the deal to publish the memoirs was first announced in 2021, Harry said of the book: ‘I write this not as the prince I was born, but as the man I have become .”

He added: “I’ve worn many hats over the years, both literally and figuratively, and I hope that in telling my story – the ups and downs, the mistakes, the lessons learned – I can help show that no matter where we come from, we have more in common than we think.”
