Royal family makes first public appearances after release of Prince Harry’s ‘Spare’
After the release of Prince Harry’s “Spare,” members of the royal family make their first public appearances.
The royal family has not provided any feedback regarding Harry’s autobiography as of now.
Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, went out in public for the first time since Prince Harry’s explosive book “Spare” came out.
William and Kate stepped out in Liverpool, England, but they did not issue a public comment on Harry’s memoir. In the book, Harry details an ongoing rift with William, including the claim that William physically attacked him in a 2019 confrontation. William and Kate stepped out in Liverpool, England, but they did not issue a public comment on Harry’s memoir.
A reporter yelled to Prince William as he and his wife Kate arrived at a nearby hospital, “Are you wounded by the comments in Harry’s book, sir?”
Before entering the hospital, William and Kate paused for a short conversation with some other people. However, neither William nor Kate responded to the reporter’s question.
King Charles III, Harry and William’s father, made his first public appearance since the release of “Spare” earlier in the day by paying a visit to a community support centre in Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
Charles didn’t say anything about his son’s memoir in public so that the royal family could keep quiet about what the book said.
The assertions that Harry makes in “Spare” have not been addressed by either Kensington Palace, which is the official residence of William and Kate, the Princess of Wales, or Buckingham Palace, which is the official residence of Charles and Camilla, the Queen Consort.
According to the publisher of the book, Penguin Random House, the memoir, which offers a unique look at life within the royal family, was an instant hit the moment it was released on Tuesday. The book sold over 1.4 million copies in just the first day across the three countries of the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.
In a statement released on Wednesday, the company, which calls itself the “world’s leading trade publisher,” said that “Spare” had the “highest first-day sales total for any nonfiction book ever published by Penguin Random House.”
The book “Spare” provides a thorough description of Prince Harry’s rift with his family, his desire to step down from his senior royal post in 2020, and how he felt growing up as the “spare” to William, the heir to the throne. “Spare” was published in 2018.
Harry has said in interviews done to promote “Spare” that he doesn’t talk to either his brother or his father very often.
William and Kate Middleton made their most recent public appearance together in September, when they went to pay their respects at the burial of Queen Elizabeth II. Harry and his wife Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, currently live in California. Because of the mourning phase for the queen, the royal couple made their first public appearance with members of the royal family in almost two years during the period.
Even though Harry writes about his family and the royal institution in a way that is personal and sometimes upsetting in his biography, he told Michael Strahan, the co-host of “Good Morning America,” that sharing his story is the only way to bring people together.
In the course of an interview that was shown on Monday on “GMA,” he made the following statement: “I don’t think that we will ever have peace with my family till the truth is out there.” “There is a great deal that I am willing to forgive, but in order for there to be reconciliation, conversations need to take place, and a part of that needs to be accountability.”
In addition, Harry shared with Strahan that he does not believe the information that will be included in “Spare” will make matters any more difficult for his family.
In response to the comments that Harry made in our interview, ABC News contacted both Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace to inquire about a response. The Kensington Palace refused to comment on the matter.
On Monday, ABC News received a response from the law firm representing Buckingham Palace, which stated that the palace needed to “consider exactly what is said in the interview and the context in which it appears.” The law firm also requested that we provide them with an immediate copy of the entire interview. As a matter of editorial policy, our news company does not operate in this manner.
