Any lingering hope for the royal family that Prince Harry’s upcoming memoirs will pull its punches or abandoned broke today when publisher Penguin Random House confirmed its devastating title: Additional.
The title is a reference to the old aphorism about the brutal nature of the household system, which will one day see his brother William ascend to the throne, that it is best to have two sons, “one heir and an heir.”
Spanish edition with subtitles, “In the Shade”, Daily mail reported.
Harry often accuses His family has emotionally abandoned him, and the title seems likely to evoke speculation that the book will be damned about his perceived treatment at their hands.
In a podcast with Dax Shepard, Harry talked about “hereditary pain and suffering” in his upbringing, saying it was a “mix of genetics” Truman’s show and live in a zoo”.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey in an Apple TV+ documentary called I you can’t see, said Harry: “My dad used to say to me when I was little, he used to say to both me and William, ‘Well, that’s how it is for me, so it’s going to be like that for Dad.’ That does not make sense. Just because you have to suffer doesn’t mean your child has to suffer. In fact, quite the opposite. If you’ve suffered, do everything you can to make sure that whatever experience, negative experience you’ve had, you can make it right for your child. “
The book will be released on January 10 and, the publishers say, will be “full of insight, self-examination and hard-won wisdom” and told with “honesty”. rudimentary, unflinching”.
The palace said it would not comment.
In a press release, the publishers confirmed the royals’ worst nightmares, saying: “Additional takes readers immediately back to one of the most poignant images of the twentieth century: two boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sadness – and horror. As Diana, Princess of Wales, is laid to rest, billions of people wonder what the princes must have thought and felt — and what their lives will be like from that point on.
“For Harry, this is his story in the end. With its raw honesty, Additional is a landmark publication filled with insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief. “
Harry is said to have been paid $20 million in advance for the book.
Markus Dohle, Global CEO of Penguin Random House Worldwide, added: “Penguin Random House is honored to publish Prince Harry’s authentic and emotional story to readers everywhere. He shares a remarkably emotional personal journey from trauma to healing, one that speaks to the power of love and will inspire and motivate millions around the world. “
Earlier, Harry said that proceeds from the book would be donated to charity and today announced a huge donation of $1,500,000 to Sentebale, which supports children and young people. vulnerable Lesotho and Botswana affected by HIV/AIDS and $300,000 to the British children’s charity WellChild.
Sources have previously told The Royalist that the palace is extremely interested in a particular chapter in the book that it fears could spoil the new king, Charles III.
The Daily Beast also understands that Charles is waiting to see what’s in the book before deciding whether to invite Harry and Meghan to the coronation.
Duncan Larcombe, former royal editor at Sun and a biographer of Harry told The Daily Beast: “Women is not a nice word in the royal realm when it is such a derogatory term, very loaded, showing you are a surrogate and not importance. While you can’t always judge a book by its cover or title, this gives a certain insight into where we’re going. It certainly suggests that Harry, the millionaire prince, will portray himself as a victim. I’m not sure how that will go down. He may not have had the easiest life – but who does? “
