As more and more revelations from Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, “Spare,” trickle out ahead of its Jan. 10 release, the prince is sitting down with various news publications to talk about the book. After Harry’s interview with Anderson Cooper on “60 Minutes” on Sunday, Jan. 8, his interview with Michael Strahan on GMA will air on Monday, Jan. 9, where he’ll dig deeper into the rift between him and his brother.
In one clip teased from the interview, Strahan asks Harry how he thinks he and Prince William’s mother, Princess Diana, would feel about their ever-growing rift. “I think she would be sad,” he said, acknowledging that Diana would not enjoy seeing her only sons fighting. But that doesn’t mean he thinks she would disagree with the road he’s taken in deciding to expose the unfair treatment he’s endured as a royal.
“I think she would be looking at it long-term to know that there are certain things we need to go through to be able to heal the relationship,” he adds. “I have felt the presence of my mom more so in the last two years than I have in the last 30.”
In another clip, Harry says there is only one hard road to reconciliation. “I don’t think that we can ever have peace with my family unless the truth is out there,” he says.
Based on leaks that have made their way into the British press, in “Spare,” Harry makes explosive revelations about his life as a royal, from claiming his father, King Charles III, made distasteful jokes about rumors that he’s not Harry’s real father to an instance where Prince William allegedly physically attacked him in 2019.
