In its Autobiography 'Reserve' (original title: 'Spare') raises Prinz Harry (38) numerous allegations against his family. In particular his brother Prince William (40), does not come off well. In a new interview, Harry now reveals that he could have unpacked a lot more – if he had wanted to.

800 pages became 400

Speaking to Bryony Gordon for Britain's Telegraph, the prince now says he's working on his autobiography with ghostwriter J.R. Moehringer (58) opened my eyes. So he remembered moments that he had previously repressed. Among other things, details of missions during his time as a soldier in Afghanistan .

While Harry reveals many private things in Reserve, he didn't want to address everything. 'It could have been two books,' he explains in the interview. The first draft was around 800 pages, the finished book is just over 400 pages. Some things were simply omitted for reasons of space, with others he said to the ghostwriter from the outset: 'Look, I'll tell you this for context, but there's no way I'll put it in there.'

Prince Harry: 'You would never forgive me'

Prince Harry was aware that he would face headwinds as soon as he wrote anything about his family. 'But it's not possible to tell my story without them in it because they play such an important role in it,' he explains. You also need to be able to understand the personalities of everyone in the book. especially between me and my brother, and to some extent too between me and my father that I just don't want the world to know about. 'Cause I don't think they'd ever forgive me.'

His family should take responsibility

Now it's fair to say that it doesn't make a difference what Harry writes in 'Reserve.' But he sees it this way: 'I'm willing to forgive you for everything you've done. And I wish , you guys would really sit down with me rationally and instead of saying I'm delusional or paranoid [...] have a real conversation about it.' Because what he really wants is for them to take responsibility 'and an apology to my wife'. In 'Reserve' Harry also reports about it, like William's wife Princess Kate (41), his wife, Duchess Meghan (41), is said to have made her cry.
