Prince Harry, the youngest son of Britain’s King Charles III, said he withheld many intimate revelations from his autobiography, released this week, that would have further soured his relationship with his father and brother, William.

In an interview with the Daily Telegraph published on Saturday, the Duke of Sussex said the King and his brother the Prince of Wales had “They would never forgive him” if he made all the details public of their complex relationship.

He acknowledged that many of these intimacies were included in the first draft of the book “Spare” (“Replacement”, in English), which it was twice as long as its final version, but they were left out so as not to make the situation worse.

“The first draft was different. It had 800 pages and stayed at 400. It could have been two books. And the hard part was getting things out,” she said in the interview.

“There are some things that have happened, especially between my brother and me, and to some extent between my father and me, that just I don’t want the world to know. Because I don’t think they ever forgave me,” she added.

He also said the media “sweeps under the rug” many of his family’s dirty laundry and mistakes it for “juicy stories about other people.”

Harry admits he’s worried about his grandchildren, George, Charlotte and Louis, because he knows about it one of them will end up being “spare” -title of his autobiography- as himself, but that his brother has made it clear that his children are not his responsibility.”

At the same time, he once again offered his family a “proper conversation” so that everyone assumes their responsibilities and, above all, that they ask his wife, Meghan Markle, for an “apology”.

What’s the book about

“Spare” speaks of Harry’s grief over his mother’s death in 1997, and the resentment he has long felt for his role as a royal “reserve”, overshadowed by the “heir”: his older brother, Prince William. She recounts arguments and a physical altercation with him, reveals how she lost her virginity (in a field) and recounts using cocaine and cannabis.

It says that too killed 25 Taliban fighters while serving as an Apache helicopter pilot in Afghanistana claim criticized by both the Taliban and British military veterans.

Harry told ITV she only cried once after her mother died: at his funeral. He said he felt guilty for showing no emotion when he and William greeted the crowd of mourners outside Kensington Palace, Diana’s London home.

In the book, Harry blames his family’s ethics for not showing his feelings, saying he had “learned all too well… the family maxim that crying is not an option”.

Harry defended his decision to publish the memoir exposing rifts within the British royal family by saying this is an attempt to “own my story” after 38 years of “misrepresentations and distortions” by others.

However, the book did not generate much interest after a leak in The Guardian that generated the first headlines in the British press.

First they generated pity and then total disinterest, forcing sellers like Amazon or Waterstone to cut the pre-sale price in half. In the UK it went from £28 ($34) to £14 (US$17).
