Prince Harry’s Memoir To Be Published Globally On January 10, 2023

Prince Harry’s long-awaited memoir will be published on January 10, 2023. Penguin Random House is publishing “Spare” simultaneously in 16 languages worldwide. This was announced yesterday by Markus Dohle, CEO of Penguin Random House.

“Spare”, the memoir of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex, will be published globally on January 10, 2023, by Penguin Random House, it was announced yesterday by Markus Dohle, Global CEO of Penguin Random House worldwide. In Germany, the German edition titled “Reserve” will be published in hardcover and as an e-book by Penguin Verlag, a Penguin Random House Verlagsgruppe imprint. An unabridged audio edition of the book (English edition read by the author) will also be released in digital and physical formats on January 10, 2023. The memoir will be issued worldwide in a total of 16 languages.

“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. For Harry, the moment has finally come to tell his story. 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.

‘Penguin Random House is honored’

“Penguin Random House is honored to be publishing Prince Harry’s candid and emotionally powerful story for readers everywhere. He shares a remarkably moving personal journey from trauma to healing, one that speaks to the power of love and will inspire and encourage millions of people around the world,” said Markus Dohle.

Prince Harry wishes to support British charities with donations from his proceeds from “Spare”. The Duke of Sussex has donated $1,500,000 to Sentebale, an organization he founded with Prince Seeiso in their mothers’ legacies, which supports vulnerable children and young people in Lesotho and Botswana affected by HIV/AIDS. Prince Harry will also donate to the non-profit organization WellChild in the amount of £300,000. WellChild, which he has been Royal patron of for fifteen years, makes it possible for children and young people with complex health needs to be cared for at home instead of hospital, wherever possible.
