MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA: It seems that Prince Harry has pulled all the stops for his upcoming tell-all autobiography 'Spare', and apparently that included reportedly asking his ex-girlfriends to provide anecdotes for the supposedly bombshell book. The book is expected to be highly critical of the royal family and is coming out on January 10, 2023.

The Daily Mail reported that the Duke of Sussex was planning to promote the book in the UK, which would certainly invite the fury of senior royals. It was said that his exes and friends all turned him down when he asked them to speak to his ghostwriter, JK Moehringer. It was reported that they were stunned and ultimately, albeit politely, said no.

“Harry did reach out. Friends and girlfriends were polite and said they would think about it but ultimately most said 'No,'" sources told the outlet, adding, “It was felt to be kind of ironic that Harry would hit the roof if he ever had an inkling they spoke to the media, but now he wants them to when he needs their help."

Before he married Meghan Markle, Harry was involved in two relationships. One with Chelsea Davy and the other with Cressida Bonas. Interestingly, both women have stayed away from making statements about the royal family in any manner after their respective breakups, something that the Sussexes were now accused of overselling. However, it was not confirmed if Bonas and Davy were approached for the book.

However, Bonas made one very rare comment about her relationship with the former working royal. In 2016, she reportedly said, “Yes it was tough. It was so full-on: crazy scary and uncomfortable. I found it very difficult when it was bad. I couldn’t cope. I was young, I was trying to be a normal kid and it was horrible,” per The Daily Mail

The book is titled ‘Spare’, meant to allude to Harry’s status as the spare with his older brother Prince William being the heir. It is now being spoken of as a dealbreaker for the Sussexes. The contents of the book could possibly change the way they were seen by the public eye forever. It was also been reported by multiple sources recently that the book was rejected multiple times before it was finally taken on, because of fears that the book was too "sexed-up" with revelations about The Firm.
