It was one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow—and horror. As Princess Diana was laid to rest, billions wondered what Prince William and Prince Harry must be thinking and feeling—and how their lives would play out from that point on. For Harry, this is that story at last. Before losing his mother, twelve-year-old Prince Harry was known as the carefree one, the happy-go-lucky Spare to the more serious Heir. Grief changed everything. He struggled at school, struggled with anger, with loneliness—and, because he blamed the press for his mother’s death, he struggled to accept life in the spotlight. At twenty-one, he joined the British Army. The discipline gave him structure, and two combat tours made him a hero at home. But he soon felt more lost than ever, suffering from post-traumatic stress and prone to crippling panic attacks. Above all, he couldn’t find true love. Then he met Meghan. The world was swept away by the couple’s cinematic romance and rejoiced in their fairy-tale wedding. But from the beginning, Harry and Meghan were preyed upon by the press, subjected to waves of abuse, racism, and lies. Watching his wife suffer, their safety and mental health at risk, Harry saw no other way to prevent the tragedy of history repeating itself but to flee his mother country. Over the centuries, leaving the Royal Family was an act few had dared. The last to try, in fact, had been his mother. . . . For the first time, Prince Harry tells his own story, chronicling his journey with raw, unflinching honesty. A landmark publication, Spare is full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.

"Ohhh Harry is so next level expecially for a Royal a real extension of his mum, it has just shed light on so many things. I do not just see what is flash before my eyes or past my ears, I now listen research before making a final judgement. If you have doubts about him or events take the time to listen to his voice hearing his emotions with different events it becomes so clear yes I know there are 2 sides then the middle but you fall back onto his side of the fence now we the global people what is mother lived in and tried to share with her sons and she also did what he is trying to do come on blind Freddy even sees. Now for the hard bit let us all band together and stop buying magazines, papers, subscriptions to this negative stuff send a contact note saying your making a stand against this sort of media crap we all should of insisted on it when poor Diana died as he would not be going thru this now so have a voice write out a note paste it everywhere and let Harry know we are standing by him, supporting him and his family, the Royals turned their back and did some terrible things let us make it right ?"
