Prince Harry's new book - your views online
What Harry has to say about Scotland in his memoir, Spare
Frances Anne Smith
Dishing all the dirt and every secret about your family and personal life to make money is really stooping lower than low. He has sold his soul in my opinion. He's the one that has jumped into bed with the devil.
I've read the book and there is not one shameful thing in it. He's allowed to live his life and talk about growing up and living in a world not one of us has any idea of. Everybody acts like they live in the royal world and "know the truth" because they listen to headlines and tabloids. The book is tastefully done. All of the ignorant judgment being cast against him is more shameful than his book. Live and let live. If you don't like reading his book, then don't.

Very shameful he and his wife are doing this! He keep on doing stupid stuff yet says he wants his father and brother back! Yeah...right way to go about doing that Harry!

No. In my view it's shameful what Harry is doing. They want to disappear, now always on the spot. He betrays his own family to get more and more money.
For someone whose lack of privacy was so important, he’s now telling his version of events to the world. I couldn’t care less.
The lad is entitled to tell his side of the story; don’t like it, don’t buy it - simples.
I am looking forward to reading his truth, his perspective and not that which the media spins for the people as fact.
I'm reading it – he's entitled to give his side of the story.
I’m on chapter six of the audio book. I find that I like the king a bit more now. And also Harry. Grief is a hard thing to process, if nothing else this book humanises them. I could see where some people might not like that.
It is an interesting book if you make the effort to approach it with an open mind - unlike so many opinionated people who are rushing to judgment without even having read it!
Carol Rice Mcmillan
I’m loving the book. It’s absolutely nothing like the media is making it out to be.
He’s very brave after what happened to his mum.
I'm buying it, lots of The Royal Family have made money from their books.
Not me! I would not waste my dosh on this rubbish!
Jane Cunningham Verzaal
Harry has his story and his truth. He is obviously happy with his wife. There were many others he could have married. There is so much gossip he is. He is setting his story straight. He has the right to do so. He is standing up for his himself and his wife, as any good man should do.
Book bought and can’t wait to start reading. At the end of the day I’m proud of what Harry’s done – we are all human.
In hot water
The cost of having three hot baths a week in 2023 has been estimated to be £1000 by experts.
A few years ago it was 40p for me to have a bath.
Shocking this, as the wholesale prices have all gone down but they are keeping them all high. The same with fuel prices – we are getting scammed each day by big companies.
In my home baths are a treat. Showers save water, gas and have a lower carbon footprint for daily use than bathing.
Fiona Osborne Smith
Absolute scandal. Showering won’t be far off that either.
Ouch! Scrub scrub, less time in the tub.
Go to the swimming pool – problem solved.
I think they are trying to say hot baths are not healthy. Go for cold showers.
Who takes three baths a week?!
That's roughly a fiver for a hot bath.
Cold hose in garden basin bucket bath.
It’s gonna cost us a fortune for me to use all my bath bombs!
Showers for the kids from now on!
