The Royal Family are said to be "preparing themselves" for when Prince Harry's "nuclear memoir", which is said to be "critical of everyone and everything", is finally released to the world on Tuesday 10 January 2023.
Details about the hotly-anticipated memoir were announced on 27 October, with the book title, front cover and a snippet of what's to come all painting an ominous picture of what we can expect.
The memoir is told from Harry's perspective, and it claims to have been written with "raw, unflinching honesty", as Penguin Random House Publishers wrote: "For Harry, this is his story at last."
The book's loaded title hints what is to come in the memoir, as it references 38 year old Harry's position as the "spare" prince, compared to his brother, Prince William, 40, the "heir" to the British throne – and it's said that the Royal Family were given no prior warning about the title before it was announced to the world.
A source told The Daily Mirror: "The very title demonstrates yet another confrontational attack on the family after claiming a desire for privacy. Palace lawyers will undoubtedly be on standby in the new year waiting to see what is in it.
"If Harry’s previous allegations across numerous TV interviews are anything to go by, this will be nuclear. Regardless of the content, which will no doubt be explosive, there will be little chance of this acting as a vehicle to reconciliation for Harry and Meghan."
The Royal Family are not expected to see the book before the rest of the world, and there are concerns that its content could be damaging, as the monarchy adjusts to a new hierarchy following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September.
Prince Harry's father, Charles, ascended the throne, making him King Charles III, and Harry's brother Prince William is now first in line.
There has been much tension between Harry and the family he was once so close to, since he and his wife Meghan Markle, 41, sensationally quit royal life in 2020.
They levelled a series of accusations at the royals during their now-infamous interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021, including one claim that a senior royal made a racist remark about the colour of their then-unborn son Archie's skin.
Harry is said to have demanded to make changes to the book following the death of his beloved grandmother in September, fearing that some comments may not be well-received by the public in the wake of the outpouring of grief for the much-loved monarch.
As the royal family, including Harry and Meghan, united in their grief during the mourning period, it looked like there could be a truce developing, but it's now been made clear that Harry will not steer away from sensitive topics.
Publishers Penguin Random House confirmed that the tell-all book will be released on 10 January, and that it will take "readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow—and horror. "
The publisher continued: "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 from that point on. For Harry, this is his story at last.
"With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief."
