1.43 million copies sold on its first day of release in the UK, US and Canada.

January 16, 2023 – Prince Harry’s tell-all memoir “Spare” has set a new record as the fastest-selling nonfiction book of all time, selling 1.43 million copies on its first day of release in the UK, US and Canada, according to Guinness World Records.

The book, which details the prince’s contentious relationships with his father, King Charles, and brother, Prince William, and the problems caused by his marriage to Meghan Markle that led to him quitting the royal family in 2020, also reveals personal details about the prince’s life such as losing his mother, Princess Diana, at the age of 12, his drinking and drug use, losing his virginity, and his time serving with the British Army in Afghanistan.

The book also talks about how the prince dealt with his mental health issues, media intrusion and the pressure of being a royal and how it led to him and Meghan to step down as senior members of the royal family.

The previous record holder for fastest-selling nonfiction book was former President Barack Obama’s “A Promised Land,” which sold 887,000 copies on its release day.

The Duke of Sussex has accused the royal family of trying to undermine his bombshell memoir. So far, Buckingham Palace has yet to officially comment on the book.

The book is widely considered as a controversial one as it covers some sensitive topics, and it has been generating a lot of media attention.

It has been a best-seller on various platforms and has been highly reviewed by many critics.
