Prince Harry accused of being a ‘hypocritical brat’ over the title of his memoir
Overnight, the publication date for Prince Harry’s first memoir was announced to be January 10, 2023. This morning, Random House Group published the first look at the book. The book’s cover features a close-up of the royal’s face, with the cheeky headline under her chin: RESERVE. Naturally, the title has already been considered controversial, and many famous faces have begun to criticize the choice of the star.
Spare is a reference to the phrase “Heir and a Spare”. By using this title, Prince Harry is suggesting in no uncertain terms that he always felt like an extra in the Royal Family. And while opinion has always been divided on Royal, many praise the 38-year-old for claiming the floor for himself.
His feelings of inadequacy were undoubtedly exacerbated when he married his wife, Meghan Markle, in 2018. He did so shortly before deciding to officially leave the Royal Family and move to Los Angeles, United States.
Prince Harry and Ms Markle have since accused the Royal Family of “racist” comments in a revealing interview with Oprah Winfrey, prompting their departure.
After the reveal of Harry’s book title, Piers Morgan spoke about the star’s choices. He told his 8 million followers: “CONFIRMED: Prince Privacy will release his latest torrent of malevolent garbage to make money for the royal family just in time to ruin his father’s coronation as king.”
Morgan went on to call Prince Harry “peculent, selfish and greedy”.
He added that King Charles should strip the “hypocritical brat of all his remaining royal titles/status as soon as possible.”
Morgan went on to make a reference to Queen Elizabeth II, who died earlier this year. He asked, “Do you care about the massive global damage this book will do to our new King before he is crowned, and while he still grieves for his mother?”
The former Good Morning Britain presenter also made direct reference to the title, adding: “It’s based on the phrase ‘heir and spare’ and it’s Harry’s way of complaining that he will never be king.”
Daily Telegraph writer Miranda Devine agreed, saying, “What an awful self-pitying title Prince Harry chose for his book: Spare.”
However, not all celebrities were outraged by the title of Prince Harry. Comedian Dom Joly said, “Great title. It’s going to be packed with Californian therapy speeches and about ten bombshells.”
Buzzfeed celebrity reporter Stephanie Soteriou added, “The power of Prince Harry calling his memories Spare is just iconic.”
Spare was announced today by Random House Group on Twitter, with the note: “We are thrilled to announce the remarkably personal and emotionally powerful story of Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex.”
