In his memoirs, Harry, 38, recounts his grief over the death of his mother, Princess Diana, and his conflicts with his brother, Prince William, and the frustration of playing the “reserve” role in the shadow of his older brother, the heir to the British throne.
The prince has criticized tabloid press in the UK for its curiosity, intrusive and sometimes erroneous coverage, claimed that his wife Megan was not welcomed by his relatives, and accused members of the royal family, including his stepmother Camilla, of leaking stories to the media to burnish their image in front of the media.
