Error in 'Spare'?

Do the sometimes serious statements, accusations and descriptions by Prince Harry (38), which he lets off the leash in his autobiography 'Spare', all correspond to reality? That's a question millions of people are asking, including outside of the UK. However, some passages in the book apparently cast doubt on Harry's credibility and could contain demonstrable errors. According to 'GB News', it is initially about an actually harmless passage in which Harry describes how he found out about the death of his great-grandmother, Queen Mum (1900-2002).

Accordingly, he found out about it by phone call while he was staying at the British boarding school Eton in the county of Berkshire. 'At Eton, when I was studying, I took a call. I wish I could remember whose voice was on the other end of the line. That of a court official, I think,' is quoted from 'Spare'. 'I remember it was just before Easter. The weather was bright and warm, light pouring through my window in vivid colors. Her Royal Highness the Queen Mother has died.'

Ski vacation instead of school?

The problem: All reports from that time seem to show that Prince Harry was not in Great Britain at all when his great-grandmother died, but was together with his father King Charles III. (74) and his brother Prince William (40) on a skiing holiday in Switzerland. A picture that allegedly shows the three after their joint return to Great Britain on March 31, 2002 should also prove this.

In addition, the anniversary of Queen Mum's death, March 30, 2002, was an Easter Saturday and the school was therefore very likely to have been closed anyway. All of this allows for the perfectly legitimate reflection: 'If there are inconsistencies about where he was when he found out about the death of his great-grandmother, it raises questions and concerns about whether there are other inconsistencies in this book.'

His mother's last gift - an Xbox?

The alleged last birthday present from his mother Diana (1961-1997) to him also raises this question. For Harry's 13th birthday in 1997, just two weeks after his mother's death, he was given an Xbox, according to 'Spare'. According to 'Mirror', this was presented to him by his aunt Sarah (67), who told him that Diana bought the game console for him shortly before her death in Paris. However, at that time there was no Xbox, Microsoft's first console did not come onto the market until 2001.
