Prince Harry recently spoke publicly for the first time about the global reaction to his new memoir “Spare”, suggesting that the royal family and the U.K. press have attempted to “undermine” the book because it contains content that could make people feel uncomfortable. The book, which was leaked last week, alleges that his father, King Charles, is difficult to communicate with, that his stepmother Camilla is “dangerous”, and that his brother Prince William once pushed him to the ground during a physical altercation.
In an appearance on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert”, Harry also spoke out against the U.K. press for sharing leaks of his book before its release and stripping away context. Despite this, Harry’s memoir has sold more than 400,000 copies on its first day and is already a huge success. Harry says the purpose of sharing his experiences is to encourage other veterans to share their stories without shame and to reduce the number of suicides among veterans. Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have not commented on any of Harry’s recent allegations.
