Commentators, critics and influencers have cherry-picked the most controversial subject matter from the book and presented issues out of context. Unfortunately, coverage by the press has been largely abysmal, catering as they do to bickering and one-upmanship to push their agendas and to make them money.
I urge everyone with a viewpoint to read 'Spare' with an open mind to get Harry's complete story rather than having it filtered through the biases of others.
I'm listening to Harry's autobiography on Audible, and his narration is superb as he reads with clarity, credibility and nuance.
The gift of 'Spare' is that every discerning person will be prompted to examine their own family relationships on the vast spectrum, including love, respect, authenticity, dysfunction, estrangement and rejection and where we may need family healing.
History will not only judge Harry, Meghan, and the Royals but every public commentator, critic, journalist and presenter for how they treat and assess the behaviour of others. Mainstream media has a lot to answer for, and I predict more outlets will close down this year due to their incompetence and inaccuracies. Before we mouth off about anyone, we must first profoundly examine our own mistakes, motives, and values and work to increase our levels of respect, understanding and compassion.
