The Duke of Sussex's hotly anticipated, tell-all book 'Spare' was scheduled for release on January 10th, however, revelations from the memoir are already making headlines, after The Guardian obtained an excerpt and the book hit shelves early in Spain.

So far Harry's explosive memoir has seen the father-of-two recall an alleged altercation during which Prince William 'attacked' him (opens in new tab) and detailed King Charles' heartfelt plea to his sons (opens in new tab) after Prince Philip's funeral in 2021.

Recalling one sweet moment, Harry wrote of how both the Prince and Princess of Wales were 'religious' viewers of the law-themed drama series and couldn't believe he was dating Rachel Zane herself (Meghan's character in the show).

According to New York Post (opens in new tab), in a translated extract from the Spanish version of Harry's memoir, he wrote how their "mouths fell open" after hearing the news,  before, "They turned to each other. Then Willy turned to me and said, 'F**k off'."

Harry then revealed that he was shocked by their initial reaction until the couple explained that they were not just "regular" but "religious" viewers of Suits. 

He then joked that he was "barraged" with questions but only gave the pair the "redacted" version of their romance, citing that he didn't want to "give away too much".
