In case anyone was wondering, the answer is yes, Prince Harry has officially kicked off his press circuit to promote his new book Spare, which comes out tomorrow (but there already have been so many leaks and revelations). Harry started off the press tour by doing an interview with Anderson Cooper on Sunday night’s 60 Minutes. The interview already aired in real time, but thankfully, you can still go back and watch if you missed it—and trust me, you definitely need to see this. So! We’ve gone ahead and rounded up absolutely everything you need to know about how to watch Harry’s interview and what to expect. Brace. Your. Self.

How can I watch Harry’s 60 Minutes interview?

The live episode aired on Sunday, but don't sweat if you missed it. There are thankfully two ways you can still catch the full interview: either stream the full interview on Paramount+ or, or read the whole 60 Minutes episode transcript instead. We love options!


It’s important to note that this convo is actually one of two promotional interviews for the book that Harry has greenlit—the second being a conversation with ITV’s Tom Bradby that will also originally aired January 8. (FYI, Tom is the journalist who famously asked Meghan Markle if she was okay during a royal tour. Meghan replied, “Thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I’m okay. But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.”). Harry also has slated appearances on Good Morning America and The Late Show.

Kay, do we know anything about what Harry’s going to say?

TL;DR: The stakes are pretty high for this interview since it will be Harry’s first American television appearance to discuss his memoir, Spare. The tell-all book is said to be Harry’s story in his own words. But we’ll let the ~official~ press release do the talking:

“In an intimate and heartfelt memoir from one of the most fascinating and influential figures of our time, Prince Harry will share, for the very first time, the definitive account of the experiences, adventures, losses, and life lessons that have helped shape him. Covering his lifetime in the public eye from childhood to the present day, including his dedication to service, the military duty that twice took him to the front line of Afghanistan, and the joy he has found in being a husband and father, Prince Harry will offer an honest and captivating personal portrait, one that shows readers that behind everything they think they know lies an inspiring, courageous, and uplifting human story.”

If you’re suddenly itching for intel on everything there is to know about Spare, here’s a handy-dandy guide of the project here:

But back to the Anderson interview! In case you need a few takeaways before diving in to make the interview even more alluring, get this: Harry told Anderson that he currently isn't speaking to his brother Prince William, or their father, King Charles, but he does wish to reconcile with them at some point. Plus, Anderson also asked Harry nearly everyone's burning question:

Anderson Cooper: "Why not renounce your titles as duke and duchess?"

Prince Harry: "And what difference would that make?"

Juicy promo for the talk dropped on January 1 and showed Harry in conversation with Anderson as they discuss Spare and life after the whole leaving the royal family endeavor.

Last week, 60 Minutes released a clip of the journalist asking Harry, “Can you see a day when you would return as a full-time member of the royal family?” His response? “No.”

That same day, yet another segment from the interview was released and showed a longer snippet of Anderson musing, “One of the criticisms that you’ve received is that well, okay, fine, you want to move to California, you want to step back from the institutional role, why be so public? You say you tried to do this privately.”

It is then that Harry explains that, “Every single time I’ve tried to do it privately, there have been briefings and leakings and planting of stories against me and my wife. You know, the family motto is ‘never complain, never explain.’ But it’s just a motto. And it doesn’t really hold….”
