Prince Harry’s memoir ‘Spare’:His relationship with Prince William, more to know ahead of release


"Spare," Prince Harry's memoir is an object of obsessive anticipation worldwide since it was first announced last year.

By Prince Harry (Random House, nonfiction)

What it’s about: Rarely does a book have us hooked with just its title, but Prince Harry’s evocatively titled memoir, an apparent reference to his being the royal family’s “spare” heir, promises to be a scintillating personal account.

The buzz: The book has been kept under lock and key, but in an interview with Anderson Cooper for “60 Minutes” last week, Prince Harry said, “When we’re being told for the last six years, ‘We can’t put a statement out to protect you.’ But you do it for other members of the family … There becomes a point when silence is betrayal.”
