Almost a month after his book was released in January this year, Prince Harry told The Telegraph that only half of what he had originally written had made it to his memoir. He confessed that he was still not ready for the “world to know” about certain events that transpired, “especially with” Prince William and King Charles. The 39-year-old even alluded to the fact that there was plenty of material to write a second book from Spare’s leftovers!
