Prince Harry shows Stephen Colbert the necklace William broke
prince harry has denied boasting about killing 25 people in Afghanistan while serving as a soldier and described this as a “very dangerous” spin against his memoir Spare.
Following a backlash, the Duke of Sussex told Stephen Colbert on The Late Show that watching the reactions has been “hurtful and challenging”.
“Without a doubt, the most dangerous lie that they have told is that I somehow boasted about the number of people that I killed in Afghanistan,” Harry said.
When asked about the story behind the pendants, the royal said: “I’ve got my kids’ heartbeats, which my wife gave me.”
Showing his necklace to the audience, the royal revealed that it has since been fixed.
Spare has become the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever, recording figures of 400,000 copies so far across hardback, ebook and audio formats on its first day of publication.
Spare by Prince Harry: A chaotic but stylish memoir that sets fire to the royal family
“You might feel as if you’ve already read prince harry‘s memory Spare by now. The virginity lost to a stallion trainer behind a pub. The dog bowl-smashing, necklace-ripping tussle with William. The constant calling out of his family briefing the press.
“This book doesn’t so much lift the curtain on private royal life than rip it off and shake out its contents. But it’s also richly detailed and at times beautifully written; if Harry is going to set fire to his family, he has at least done it with some style.”
