Echoes of the publication of Prince Harry’s memoirs – which It contained numerous scandals surrounding Britain’s royal family Ongoing, not only in the UK but around the world.
The memoirs were not without reference to the children of his brother, Prince William, the British Crown Prince.
In a pre-book TV interview in California, where he lives with his wife Megan, Harry made it clear that he feels responsible for William’s children: George (9), Charlotte (7), and Louis (4).

“I know that of these three kids, at least one will end up like me, Spare,” he said. “It hurts and worries me,” he added, acknowledging that his brother William “made it clear to him that his children were not my responsibility.”
“It’s not about trying to bring down the monarchy, it’s about trying to save them from themselves,” Harry said.
Prince Harry confirmed, in an interview published by The Telegraph newspaper, that he removed many paragraphs from his diaries, fearing that his father, King Charles III, and his brother William would never “forgive” him for some embarrassing information.
“The first draft (of the book) was different,” he told the newspaper. It had 800 pages, but the book in its final form is only 400 pages. Two books could have been released in this way. The hardest part was removing the clips.”
He added, “There are things that happened, especially between me and my brother, and to some extent between me and my father, that I don’t want the world to know. Because I think they will never forgive me.”
The book, titled “Spare,” or “reserve,” made a splash in bookstores. King Charles III’s youngest son spared no one, not least his brother, two years his senior, whom he called his “sworn enemy”.
The book presented William as an angry man who does not like Megan, Harry’s wife, as he considers her “ill-bred and aggressive.” Harry also told the story of his being knocked to the ground by his brother William, following an argument between them in 2019.
He also spoke directly to the royal family, asking them to apologize to his wife, Megan, “because you know what you did.” “So admit it and we can all move on.”
Buckingham Palace has been silent since the release of the book, which added tension within the royal family a few months before the coronation of Charles III on May 6.
