New information about Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir highlights a “deep shame” in the Duke of Sussex, a royal biographer has said. On Thursday, several new details about the upcoming memoir were released, including the title of the book.

‘Spare’ will hit the shelves on January 10, 2023, after being “tentatively” scheduled for later this year.

The title immediately prompted speculation over its meaning, and its significance for the contents being made public next year.

It is thought to refer to the phrase “heir and the spare”, relating to Prince William’s and Prince Harry’s respective positions in the line of succession.

Royal biographer Angela Levin claimed the title betrays a “deep shame”, and predicted the account is likely to be “nasty” towards the Royal Family.

Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams also referred to the title as an “ominous” sign of what will be written in the memoir.

He told Express.co.uk: “When someone refers to themselves as a spare, it is at best cynical and at worst derogatory.

“As a future Queen, it was sometimes said, Diana’s duty was to produce an ‘heir and a spare’.”

The Duke promised the memoir would be “accurate and wholly truthful”, adding he was “writing this not as the prince I was born but as the man I have become”.

In new promotional material, a freshly-launched website for the memoir promised an account “full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief”.

The memoir will be full of “raw, unflinching honesty”, and £1.3m of the proceeds from the book will be donated to two charities supported by the Duke of Sussex.
