Prince Harry has been making a lot of headlines for the last couple of months. The Duke of Sussex has been trying to tell his side of the story for a few months now. Last month, he was a part of Netflix’s docuseries, Harry & Meghan. The series featured the Duke of Sussex and his wife, Meghan Markle, and they revealed the criticism and discrimination they faced from the Royal family over the years. They thought the series would help in improving their social image in the UK. However, the series had an adverse effect on their images and they ended up losing the support they had in the US as well.
Now, Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir, Spare was released earlier this week on 10th January. The book has given further insights into the controversies surrounding the Duke of Sussex and the Royal Family. In a recent interview, Prince Harry revealed that he has still not told the full story about his family. He had to leave out some details on purpose because it was too extreme.

He also said that deciding what to keep in the book was the hard part.
The Duke of Sussex is allegedly worried about his nephews and nieces
In the same interview, Prince Harry revealed that he is worried about his brother’s children. He feels that he has a responsibility towards his 2 nephews and niece to change the current hierarchy of monarchy.
