Prince Harry Said He Cut Some King Charles And Prince William Stories From “Spare” Because They’d Never Forgive Him And It Would’ve Been 800 Pages Long
Prince Harry’s “tell-all” book, Spare (seen here already half-price because all of the juicy bits were forcibly squeezed into our ear holes and eyeballs before the book even hit the shelves, probably), has already broken sales records and reportedly rankled Prince William and Kate Middleton to their emotionless cores. But, the sloppy-mouthed spare wants everyone to know that he didn’t actually tell it all and did exercise SOME discretion by leaving out a few tidbits–because the book would’ve been 800 pages long, and William and King Charles would’ve found those particular items unforgivable.
ET Canada says “Harold” continued his boundless media blitz by chatting with The Telegraph, where he said that he’s afraid one of his brother’s children may end up a “spare” like him. And he also said that he had to cut out some of the “Willy” and “Pa” stories so the book didn’t end up being 800 pages long–which could’ve been enough for two books.
Harry reveals that the first draft of the book hit a whopping 800 pages before being cut down to the 400 pages buyers will see on bookstore shelves.
“It could have been two books, put it that way,” he said. “And the hard bit was taking things out.”
Harry also said some of the material was never meant to make it to the final cut but was necessary for his ghostwriter to know to put some of what did appear into the proper context, so we’ll probably never know if Pa aspired to be a Tampax Super Plus or a Kotex Regular.
Harry also explained that he gave ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer a lot of material meant for context in writing the book, with the understanding that there was “absolutely no way” they would end up in the published version.
“Because on the scale of things I could include for family members, there were certain things that — look, anything I’m going to include about any of my family members, I’m going to get trashed for,” he said. “I knew that walking into it. But it’s impossible to tell my story without them in it, because they play such a crucial part in it. And also, because you need to understand the characters and personalities of everyone within the book.”
And we already heard that Harry hopes to reconcile with his family one day, which could depend on them being able to get past the messy stuff that DID make the book (…and documentary). But he says he’s willing to forgive them for the messy things they’ve done to him–and if they keep his wife Meghan Markle’s name out of their fucking mouths and apologize to her–they could all be one big, dispassionate symbolic institution.
Harry continued. “But there are some things that have happened, especially between me and my brother, and to some extent between me and my father, that I just don’t want the world to know. Because I don’t think they would ever forgive me.
“Now you could argue that some of the stuff I’ve put in there, well, they will never forgive me anyway,” he admitted. “But the way I see it is, I’m willing to forgive you for everything you’ve done, and I wish you’d actually sat down with me, properly, and instead of saying I’m delusional and paranoid, actually sit down and have a proper conversation about this, because what I’d really like is some accountability.”
He then added, “And an apology to my wife.”
Oooh, I love a good ultimatum!
- I have enough for two books
- There are more damning things that could’ve made it to print
- Apologize to my wife
Don’t threaten Harold with a good time, or he’ll immortalize your assholery in print again–a hustler never squelches a second opportunity to cash in! At least when it comes to being chaotic, Harry’s first in line to the throne.
