On Tuesday, after over a year of waiting, Prince Harry's explosive autobiography, Spare, went on sale around the world. In the highly anticipated tell-all, the Duke of Sussex doesn't hold back, going after everyone from his brother, Prince William, and sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, to his father, King Charles, and stepmother, Queen Camilla.
The big question is: How will the Royal Family react to the book, which makes endless accusations against The Firm? According to one expert, the King is weighing his options, and one of them is launching a "nuclear" attack to deal with the "exploding" situation.
