Who will be reading Prince Harry’s brand new memoir ‘Spare’, which arrived on our shelves today?

Prince Harry’s memoir Spare hit the shelves today (Tuesday January 10) and stores opened early to sell the highly-anticipated book - though there were no signs of long queues.

In Manchester city Centre, Waterstones near St Ann’s Square began selling at the earlier time of 8am. Staff in the shop confirmed they had sold between five and 10 copies before 10.30am and had had 20 reservations placed by eager customers. The shop said it expected to sell many copies during the days following its release.

The book of memoirs has amassed plenty of attention, particularly after the recent Netflix series, Harry and Meghan, attracted huge viewing figures. It seems many people are eager to read the Prince’s reflection on his life as a Royal - but we headed into Manchester city centre to ask the public if they were planning on picking up a copy.
