Whether he does or not, that's one Pandora's Box he will leave closed. There's the risk of getting dis-royaled, and he couldn't blame that on racism.

You mean the one that gave him more than GBP 5 million since their marriage?

Should be enough for a decent hair transplant one would think. If not, shave it off Harry, get rid of it, you're fooling anyone!

I thought I'd never reply on this thread and agree with Tom

It seems to be a weird indeed...is there a chance that this guy has some ability for introspection and not just an empty vessel for traditions and protocols? Or, did the ghostwriter just scored a goal to nerds?

The Kindle edition is 13$ so it's not really more expensive than say a glossy magazine you buy in an airport (might be even cheaper)...I think this book will sell even if this is happening for the wrong reasons...

He got a rapturous reception on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Extended applause and standing ovation on arrival, audience roaring with laughter and applauding at practically every utterance.

Re: [Prince] Harry and Meghan

At least 3 major errors found so far, how did no one fact check this before publication?

He reckons he was at Eton when QM died. It was actually Easter weekend and he was in Klosters.

He thinks he is a descendant of Henry VI (he is not).

He says he got an XBox 4 years before they anctually existed.

Itís been reported he filmed it a day earlier than the rest of the show in front of a small hand picked audience of veterans.

Re: [Prince] Harry and Meghan

Apparently a lot of booksellers are already discounting the book by 50%, or more.

If it wals like a duck …

As I thought...
Quote:
The publisher of Prince Harry's controversial memoir says sales have exceeded its "most bullish expectations".
Transworld Penguin Random House said Spare was its fastest-selling non-fiction book with sales so far topping 400,000 copies.
.......
Transworld managing director Larry Finlay said: "We always knew this book would fly but it is exceeding even our most bullish expectations.
"As far as we know, the only books to have sold more in their first day are those starring the other Harry (Potter)."
https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-64229998

"Spare" is also translated in 16 languages so far.
