Prince Harry says he seeks accountability from the royal family with ‘Spare’ memoir

Prince Harry continued his memoir press tour Reserve On Good morning America Monday morning.

As a follow-up to Sunday’s television interviews for ITV and CBS’ 60 minutesThe Royal Family sit-down with co-host Michael Strahan focused on his tense relationship with his family and why he wrote the book.

“I don’t think we can ever be at peace with my family unless the truth is known. There’s a lot I can forgive, but it takes conversations to reconcile, and part of that has to be responsibility,” said Harry.

Adding later, “The only way I can protect us and the only way I can correct those untruths is to write something, the truth, in one place. And I fully accept that writing a book feeds the beast anyway.”

Harry explained the title of his memoir as a label “used against him,” noting that brother William is the heir and Harry the “reserve” to the royal throne. Regarding the reference to his brother as his “nemesis” in the book, Harry said the heir reserve labels and the British press helped create that competition between the brothers.

Harry took note of the stories surrounding the alleged feud between the brothers’ wives, Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton, over the bridesmaid dresses, as well as the many stories of Markle allegedly making members of the royal family cry as prime examples of the British press dividing the battle. brothers. Harry also blames his father, King Charles, and stepmother, the new Queen, Camilla, for the strained relationship.

“I think she would be sad,” Harry said when asked how he thinks his late mother, Princess Diana, would feel about her sons’ relationship. “I think she would be devastated that it ended where it ended. I think she would be heartbroken that William, his office, was part of these stories.

Strahan asked Harry if he ever saw himself returning to his role as a working royal. ‘I don’t think it will ever be possible,’ Harry replied. “I don’t think, you know, even if there was an agreement or an arrangement between me and my family, there’s a third party [the British press] that’s going to do everything it can to make sure that’s not possible. Not to prevent us from going back, but to make it unsurvivable.”

But he noted that he can never quite “get out” of the family: “There’s no version of me that can ever get out of this.”

When I spoke to Anderson Cooper for CBS’ 60 Minutes: Interview with Prince HarryHarry said he continued to speak out publicly because “every time I tried to do it privately, there were briefings and leaks and stories planted against me and my wife.”

“I don’t know how silence will ever make things better,” he reiterated to Tom Bradby for Britain’s ITV, noting that his family had shown “absolutely no willingness to reconcile” despite Harry trying to get through to them, through calls, letters and emails.

Reserve, which accidentally went on sale early in Spain, has generated headlines for days over the revelations revealed by the Duke of Sussex. In the book, Prince Harry discussed his grieving process surrounding the death of his mother Princess Diana, including how he coped by taking drugs and how he and Prince William held doubts surrounding her death for years; he spoke of his “sibling rivalry” with Prince William that began after Diana’s death and has continued into his well-known separation from the royal family; and how the British press, which he called the “main antagonist,” remains the biggest barrier to any reconciliation between him and Markle with the royal family.

The memoir follows Netflix’s release Harry and Megan doc series, which has become a hit for the streamer. The four-part series saw Harry and Markle dig deeper into their split with the royal family, following their 2021 bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, and saw the pair accuse William’s press team of spreading stories about the Sussexes to the British press .
