Prince Harry will release his hotly anticipated memoir, named Spare, in January. Publishers have promised “raw, unflinching honesty” in the book, which will hit shelves on 10th January 2023.

In a nod to the openness expected from Harry, the cover image is stripped back, simply showing the royal staring down the camera, wearing a plain t-shirt.

It had been thought Harry would tone down his thoughts on the Royal Family following the death of the Queen this year – but the latest insights into what is to come imply this won’t be the case.

Random House, who are publishing the book, said: “As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would play out…

“For Harry, this is his story at last.”

Buckingham Palace have declined to comment when approached by other publications.

Some of the proceeds from the book will go to charity. Random House explained: “The Duke of Sussex has donated $1,500,000 to Sentebale, an organisation he founded with Prince Seeiso in their mothers’ legacies, which supports vulnerable children and young people in Lesotho and Botswana affected by HIV/AIDS.

“Prince Harry will also donate to the non-profit organisation WellChild in the amount of £300,000. WellChild, which he has been Royal patron of for fifteen years, makes it possible for children and young people with complex health needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital, wherever possible.”

Spare will be released worldwide on 10th January 2023. For more information visit
