Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir “Spare” was accidentally released early in Spain, leading to a frenzied dash to pick up a copy.
A customer reportedly grabbed two Spanish editions of Spare from the shelves for 22.90 euros (£20.23).
The Sun got hold of a Spanish copy of the 557-page book, which was titled “En La Sombra”, which translates to “In The Shadow”.
Inside, it reads: “Para Meg, Archie y Lili… y, for supuesto, mi madre” – which means “for Meg, Archie and Lili… and, of course, my mother”.
Spare was not due to be officially published until next Tuesday, January 10.
The customer who picked up the book, who wanted to remain anonymous, said: “I was shocked when I saw them selling it.
“They didn’t seem to know how big this was – they’re not as high-profile here. It must’ve been some kind of mistake.”
The book is expected to be more incendiary than the Netflix documentary released by Harry and his wife Meghan Markle last month – and an extract obtained by the Guardian already suggests this is the case.
In the extract, Harry, 38, alleges that his brother Prince William, 40, physically assaulted him during a confrontation over his relationship with Meghan.
Prince William, the book claims, called Meghan “rude”, “difficult” and “abrasive” during the heated argument.
Harry then wrote that his brother grabbed him by the collar and “knocked” him to the floor.
The book goes on to claim that King Charles pleaded with the battling brothers, saying: “Please, boys. Don’t make my final years a misery.”
