Prince Harry’s controversial memoir became the fastest selling non-fiction book ever when his tell-all tale lambasting the royal family was finally published this week. The headline-grabbing autobiography Spare, which hit the shelves on Tuesday, includes claims that the Prince of Wales physically attacked him, and that the King put his own interests above Harry’s and was jealous of the Duchess of Sussex and the Princess of Wales. But US commentator CJ Pearson has accused the Duke of Sussex making himself out as a “victim” despite the privilege he was born into.

He told Fox News: “It goes to the core of the issue of what I’ve coined the commercialisation of victimisation.

“This is the time when it has become profitable to blame things like racism, and oppression and make a pretty big payday because of it. It’s exactly what we see from Prince Harry.

“This is an individual who was born into literal royalty, has unimaginable wealth but still somehow has found a way to make himself a victim.

“I think young people like me deserve someone better to look up to. A lot of us should be choosing to be a victor and not another victim.”

Harry has since revealed he had enough material for two books, but he held back because he does not think his father and brother would “ever forgive” him.

In an interview with Bryony Gordon of The Daily Telegraph, Harry said: “It could have been two books, put it that way.”

Gordon writes that Harry told her the first draft was 800 pages – double the final manuscript which comes in at just over 400 pages.

Harry told Gordon that there were things he revealed to ghostwriter JR Moehringer “for context”, but there was “absolutely no way” they would be included in the book.

The duke said it is impossible to tell his story without referring to family members.

He added: “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.

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.

“And an apology to my wife.”

During the interview, Harry told Gordon that he knows the press “have got a shit-tonne of dirt about my family. I know they have, and they sweep it under the carpet for juicy stories about someone else”.

Harry also revealed that he worries about his brother’s children.
