As you all know, the UK's Prince Harry has written a book. It is also about the death of his mother (Princess Diana), his relationship with the press, and being a royal family member. The book's name is "Spare". The word "spare" means someone or something that only exists in case another person or thing is lost, broken, or worn out. The title "Spare" refers to the fact that Harry would only become the UK's king if his father and brother died. The book has been published in 16 languages. In the UK, "Spare" went on sale at midnight one Sunday and lots of people were waiting to buy it. One of the UK's leading bookstores, Waterstones, said "Spare" has been one of its "biggest pre-order titles for a decade".
The book is controversial. A member of Britain's Royal Family has never spoken so openly. Harry said the book tells the story about why he moved his young family to the USA, and why he gave up his official royal duties. He said the UK press has continually written bad things about his wife Meghan, and reports on his life with Meghan in a negative way. "Spare" is one way for Harry to tell his family his real feelings. He writes about how he argued with the Royal Family. He claims his brother Prince William attacked him because he wanted to marry Meghan. He also wrote about the number of Taliban fighters he killed in Afghanistan when he was a soldier. The stories are a big scandal in the UK and around the world.
