Penguin Random House just confirmed the name, publication date, and cover of Prince Harry's book, and honestly we cannot wait. Spare comes out on January 10, 2023, and is described as "a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief."
But let's talk about that title for a moment. It's a pretty clear reference to the phrase "heir and spare," and speaks to Harry's role in the sidelines when he was still a senior working member of the royal family. And while the title Spare alone has the royals fully spiraling, the book's title in Spain is reportedly even more evocative—it's Spare: En La Sombra, which translates to Spare: In The Shadow.
Harry isn't said to have informed his family about the book's title(s) in advance, but a source told The Daily Mail that "that title is loaded and it does not bode well."
We are excited to announce the remarkably personal and emotionally powerful story of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex.

Meanwhile, a source spoke about the English-language title to The Mirror, saying, “The very title demonstrates yet another confrontational attack on the family after claiming a desire for privacy. The very title demonstrates yet another confrontational attack on the family after claiming a desire for privacy. Palace lawyers will undoubtedly be on standby in the new year waiting to see what is in it. If Harry’s previous allegations across numerous TV interviews are anything to go by, this will be nuclear. Regardless of the content, which will no doubt be explosive, there will be little chance of this acting as a vehicle to reconciliation for Harry and Meghan."
Truly cannot wait to read this book. Judging from the 10/10 title it's going to be a doozy.
