Mr Eden said, "For me, it's so significant that word Spare. It just conjures up so many images of self-pity really. It's all sort of woe is me, I've had such a hard time and everything. You forget this is a prince born into privilege, every privilege in the world and now he's not American firms like Netflix throwing millions at him. Spare us the self-pity!," reported Express.

The bombshell memoir was supposed to reach bookstores this fall, but there has been conjecture that the release date was postponed out of respect for the Queen after her death. It is also said to have had potentially harmful content. However, the royal family and the Duke's father, Charles, who is currently the King and in the early stages of his reign, are likely to be bracing themselves for new discoveries.

The memoir will be published by Penguin Random House, which said in a press release, "Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the 20th century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother's coffin as the world watched in sorrow - and horror. 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."

On November 4, The unofficial biographer of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle defended the title of the Duke of Sussex's eagerly awaited biography, asserting that the US-based royal was a "scapegoat" inside the royal family. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex's departure from the royal family is the subject of "Finding Freedom", which Mr Scobie co-wrote. He said that royal devotees "shouldn't have been overly surprised" by the title choice as per Express.

According to Mr Scobie, Harry is "finally owning the term after a lifetime of being called it" by repurposing the term "spare," which refers to people who are pushed down the line of succession by an older brother acting as the heir. Calling the word "one of the most defining aspects of his royal existence", Mr Scobie said to Yahoo News UK, "A spare also carries a purpose rarely acknowledged by any royal or palace official — the resident scapegoat to protect the Crown and higher ranking family members."
