Prince Harry’s memoir, ‘Spare,’ set to be released in January
Prince Harry’s memoir is set to be published in January.
Harry is a very private person and often has a very complicated relationship with his public image.
But as the world’s youngest royal, he has also faced pressure to be more open and relatable as he embarks on a new chapter in his life as an open book.
The book’s publication has been delayed indefinitely, but it is expected in January 2013.
The book details his childhood growing up in the same part of the world, his time serving in the forces and his upbringing at Kensington Palace. It also looks at his friendship with William and Harry’s own father, Prince Charles, and his own relationship with Prince Harry.
A summary of the book, based on an advance look, published in today’s Daily Mail:
The book is ‘a raw, intimate story of two brothers struggling to overcome their past, while simultaneously embracing their future, and discovering the joys and struggles of a very different future.’
Prince Harry’s first book release in his four-year gap as a public figure was Prince Jack’s ‘Boyfriend.’
It sold more than four million copies in the first three weeks of its release.
Harry’s next book release was a biography of a different Prince William, the late William’s younger brother, Duke of Cambridge.
That book, also published in hardback, was not as successful for the prince, selling only 2,500 copies of the first printing.
The ‘Spare’ book is thought to be on track to top the 4 million copy target.
But the publication of the book is not the only way Harry is helping others to be open about their own stories.
He has also been working part-time for charity Smile.
He set himself an ambitious goal to raise £1,000 for the charity, and set up a new personal goal – to raise £100,000 within three months.
He is also continuing his commitment to work towards becoming an Eagle Scout.
With his success in writing and raising money, Harry is hoping to become the first person to be awarded the title of Eagle Scout by the Boy Scouts of America.
