I believe in minding my own business—but not when it comes to the royals. How can I be expected to tune out the biggest soap opera of all time? Glitz and glamor. Betrayal and family drama. As someone who grew up watching far too much television, I find it hard to look away.

Now, for the sake of myself—and all of you watching far too much of The Crown—it's time to pick up a book. On January 10, Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, will release his memoir, Spare. The upcoming book will track Harry’s life following the tragic death of his mother, Princess Diana. It will include stories about his upbringing and experience serving in the military, along with his marriage to Meghan Markle, the discrimination they endured, and their choice to leave the royal family once and for all.

In Spare, Prince Harry also details his complex relationship with his family. In an excerpt of the book, obtained by The Guardian, Harry reportedly reveals that his brother, Prince William, shoved him to the ground during an argument. William allegedly called Meghan “difficult, rude, and abrasive,” with Harry claiming that he was siding with the tabloid's narrative about his wife. According to Harry, the two then got into a screaming match. “It all happened so fast,” Harry wrote of the events that followed. “He grabbed me by the collar, ripping my necklace, and he knocked me to the floor. I landed on the dog’s bowl, which cracked under my back, the pieces cutting into me. I lay there for a moment, dazed, then got to my feet and told him to get out.”

The rest of Spare is said to have even more shocking passages about Prince Harry’s life story. The name itself alludes to mistreatment: “spare” is a reference to an old saying that implies the firstborn royal son is the heir to the throne, while the second is the spare. In a statement about the memoir Prince Harry said, “I’m writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become. 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.”

If you’d like to read more, don’t worry—you won’t have to wait too long to read the Prince’s deeply-personal tale. Spare will be available to purchase in bookstores and online next week, on January 10. You can preorder Spare below.
