Quick PSA for You: Prince Harry’s Memoir *Finally* Has a Confirmed Release Date

Prince Harry’s highly-anticipated memoir finally has a confirmed release date, and it's *drumroll, please* January 10, 2023! A refresher: the book's release date was recently pushed back to next year after Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, passed away this September. The new date just so happens to mark almost exactly three years since Harry and Meghan Markle stepped back from their roles as senior members of the British royal family. And if ya need a handy dandy breakdown of all of that 🍵, here's a v comprehensive timeline:

But back to le book. The title, Spare, almost immediately caught the attention of everyone from internet sleuths to television personalities. Case in point? Peter Hunt, the BBC’s former royal correspondent, commented on the sheer “power and the pathos of one word.”

The title is a clear reference to Harry’s role in line to the royal throne, right behind both his father, King Charles III, and his older bother, William, Prince of Wales.

The book's publisher Random House said the following of the explosive announcement on its website: “With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.” It further promoted the “tell all” on its social media, and tweeted that it's “excited to announce the remarkably personal and emotionally powerful story of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex.”

Also worthy of mention? Harry previously announced he would donate a portion of the proceeds from the book to charity, and he's sticking to that promise. Per a statement from the Random House imprint, the Duke of Sussex has already donated $1.5 million to Sentebale, an organization he founded with Prince Seeiso of Lesotho that supports vulnerable children and young people in Lesotho and Botswana affected by HIV/AIDS. He is also set to donate £300,000 to WellChild, a charity that makes it possible for children and young people with complicated health needs to be cared for at home rather than a hospital. Go Harry!
