Stephen Colbert asked Prince Harry many questions before bringing up The Crown- which shows Prince Harry's family history.

Asked whether he "fact-checks" it as he watches, Prince Harry mimed licking his fingers and turning the pages of a notebook.
He then admitted, "Yes, I do, actually."
Then pointing to a copy of the Spare which Stephen Colbert was holding, Prince Harry said, “Which, by the way, another reason why it's so important that history has it right.”

During his interview with Tom Bradby on ITV, Prince Harry explained that he wanted people to know his version of the story, so that they wouldn't make assumptions based on incomplete information and the rumor mill.
"But for me, I sit here now, speaking to you, answering the questions that you put to me, and the words and the truth will come from my lips rather than using other people, especially through the tabloid media," he said (via the Daily Mail).
In Spare, Harry didn't hold any of his truth back, either, going into detail about a ton of unexpected events in his life.
