The title of a new book from Prince Harry – which is said to feature ‘raw unflinching honesty’ – has been revealed.

The Duke of Sussex’s story, titled ‘Spare’, is expected to hit the shelves on January 10.

‘Spare’ appears to be a reference to the phrase ‘heir and a spare’ – perhaps touching on his attitude towards his place within the royal family, reports Sky News.

Details of Princess Diana’s funeral are said to be detailed in the book, with publishers, Penguin Random House, saying: “‘Spare’ takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the twentieth 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.”

The memoir is advertised as ‘his story at last’, delving into Prince Harry’s ‘personal journey from trauma to healing’.

A description of the book reads: “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.”

Prince Harry, 38, hopes some of the proceeds from the book will support charities, including Sentebale and WellChild.

Markus Dohle, Penguin Random House chief executive, said: “Penguin Random House is honoured to be publishing Prince Harry’s candid and emotionally powerful story for readers everywhere.

“He shares a remarkably moving personal journey from trauma to healing, one that speaks to the power of love and will inspire and encourage millions of people around the world.”

The memoir will be released in English in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, India, South Africa and Canada, and it will also be published in 15 other languages, including Spanish, Italian, German and Chinese.

Last year, Piers Morgan slammed Prince Harry for ‘trashing’ the royal family in the upcoming memoir.

The TV presenter, who quit Good Morning Britain over his controversial comments about the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, shared his thoughts shortly after the book was announced.

He tweeted: “Ready to tell his story? Prince Privacy hasn’t stopped yapping, whining and trashing his family all bloody year.”

Following the title announcement on Thursday (October 27), he wrote: “Prince Privacy will hurl his latest torrent of malevolent money-making muck at the Royal Family just in time to ruin his father’s coronation as King.

Charles should strip this petulant, selfish, greedy, hypocritical brat of all his remaining royal titles/status ASAP.”

King Charles is set to be coronated on May 6 next year at Westminster Abbey, in an event which will also see the former Duchess of Cornwall, Camilla, coronated as Queen Consort.

Buckingham Palace has declined to comment on Prince Harry’s memoir.
