Prince Harry’s memoir is in the number two position on Amazon’s best seller list for pre-sales. The book is expected to continue the Duke’s attacks on the Windsors and Buckingham Palace.
Hardback editions of Harry’s book go on sale on January 10 with the work priced at £14 in Britain and $22.40 (£18.56) in the United States.
The work will be published simultaneously around the world in a deal reportedly worth £16.5million ($20million) with proceeds from the work set to be donated to charity.
Spare is ghost written by Pulitzer prize-winning author J.R. Moehringer, who will reportedly be paid £828,590 ($1million) for her work.
Over its 416 pages, Harry will share his recollections of the aftermath of the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales, in a Paris car crash in 1997.
In trailers for his interviews with ITV and CBS, Harry claimed the Royal Family has shown no willingness to reconcile. He also said he wanted his father and brother back.
Royal expert Daniela Elser, in an op-ed published in news.com.au, said Prince William could be in for a pasting from Harry’s book.
Ms Elser points to sources suggesting the first in line to the throne “is painted in the harshest light”.
She wrote: “‘It’s tough on William, in particular, and even Kate gets a bit of a broadside,’ the source said. ‘There are these minute details, and a description of the fight between the brothers. I personally can’t see how Harry and William will be able to reconcile after this.'”

The commentator continued: “For Kate, right now, watching her formerly close brother-in-law on the cusp of yet another offensive, and with not only her husband reportedly in his sights but her too, must be a particularly hard experience, not least because there is nothing they can do.”
Ms Elser concluded: “The way things look today, there may well be more discomfort and sadness for William and Kate to come.”
