PRINCE Harry's explosive memoir has a different title in Spain – and it's even darker than the UK version.
The Duke of Sussex's long-awaited biography has been named "Spare" in the UK – with publishers this morning confirming it would be released on January 10.
The title likely refers to "the heir and the spare", a saying used to describe Harry and his brother and future King, William.
It is a nod to the monarch's first child being necessary to continue the line of succession – unlike the second, lower-ranking Royal.
But the 416-page memoir's title in the Spanish version is even more of a bombshell as Harry tells his story "at last".
In Spain, the title for the first of three books will be 'Spare: En La Sombra' which translates to 'Spare: In The Shadows'.
Harry – who has already received half of a £35million payout for his book – will read the audiobook version himself.
It comes as…
- Prince Harry will read audiobook version of bombshell memoir and revealed what he'll do with the proceeds
- The book's release date will mark three years from Megxit – and there are nine questions Harry must truthfully answer
- Piers Morgan slammed the book as "money-making muck"
- And book giant Waterstones has already slashed the price in half
- King Charles decided not to strip Harry and Andrew from a major royal role
- But experts spotted a telling clue he will never return to Royal duties
Publisher Penguin Random House's description reads: "With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief.
"Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the twentieth century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother’s coffin as the world watched in sorrow—and horror.
"As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would play out from that point on."
In the description of the book, the Duke describes himself as "a husband, father, humanitarian, military veteran, mental wellness advocate, and environmentalist".
