In the weeks leading up to the release of Spare, Prince Harry appeared for several interviews to promote his book where he made claims against the royal family and accused his brother Prince William of physically attacking him.

Prince Harry's book, Spare, which released on January 10, delves into more topics, including the challenges of growing up in the public eye, and the treatment of him and his wife, Meghan Markle, that led them to step down as working royals. Prince Harry and Meghan tied the knot on May 19, 2018, and have two children -- Archie and Lilibet. In January 2020, the couple stepped down as working royals and later settled in California, US.
