It should be noted here that publisher Penguin Random House confirmed the title and release date of the memoir earlier this week. The book, set to be out on January 10, will be “full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief”, the publisher said.
The title ‘Spare’ refers to Harry’s position as the younger brother of Prince William, who has been heir to the British throne since their father Charles become king last month following the death of Queen Elizabeth. Until William and his wife Kate had their three children, Harry was next in line to his brother in the order of succession, hence the phrase ‘the spare to the heir’.
The book will be published in 15 languages, including Spanish, French and Chinese, while the English-language edition will be available in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa and Canada.

It will be priced at 28 pounds ($32.43) in Britain, the publisher said, and an audio edition, read by the author, will be released.
Prince Harry will support British charities with donations from the proceeds of the memoir, the publisher said.
