Harry’s Revelations Weaken Monarchy
UK media outlets have been outraged over Prince Harry’s newly released book Spare. On 10 January 2023, Harry’s memoir was officially available for sale, and many people excitedly bought his autobiography. Book Spare is the UK’s fastest-selling ‘non-fiction’ book on its official release day. Harry’s revelations expose the private life of a British Royal. That makes the monarchy more vulnerable than before the coronation of Charles III.
Harry Is the Son of Outspoken Diana
Harry is the second son and the last child of King Charles III and the late Princess Diana. His mother died in 1997, when Harry was only 12, in a car accident in Paris. Dianna and Charles had divorced a year before, and her death has always remained controversial. Diana was a cultural icon and a famous, outspoken royal member.
Troubled Relationship of Royal Brothers
Prince Harry would not become a monarch because his older brother William was the heir to the throne. Harry was the fifth person in the order of succession, but he left the family, escaping royal control. In the 500-page book Spare, he mentions his troubled relationship with his older brother, Prince William. In 2019, his older brother knocked him to the floor during an argument over Harry’s wife, Meghan.
Relieved from Royal Control
According to Harry, William had called Meghan a rugged, abrasive, and rude person. The relationship between the couples, Harry and Meghan on the one hand, and William and his wife Kate on the other, deteriorated. In 2020, Harry and Meghan stepped down from their royal duties, leaving the UK for Canada and then to California. Since then, Harry and Meghan have delivered criticisms of the Royal family.
Harry and Meghan Denounced Media
In an explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, the couple criticised the British royal family. Meghan exposed how racist UK media treated her that she did not want to be alive anymore.

The royal control was tremendous, and she could not leave the palace alone.
The Couple Were Trapped
Meghan felt she was trapped and under royal control until she left the palace for the US. The couple had to do their jobs and smile at the events, but they would hold each other’s hands tightly. It proves how Meghan and Harry felt while being under royal control. In an interview, Meghan said she was entering a gilded cage by joining the royal family.
Royal Family Could Not Stop UK Media
After Oprah’s interview, the couple made a Netflix documentary. In the document, Harry said the royal family failed to account for the racial elements against Meghan in the UK media. Many news outlets in the UK denounced the couple for making the Netflix soap opera. However, they perfectly covered the documentary, and some ran live blogs summarizing it when it came out.
