For the record, I am not into celebrity gossip. I don't care who those strangers I see on television sleep with. I don't care what they wear. I don't care who their kids are. I don't read People or US. I care about people I know and deal with, not strangers who just happen to be on TV. So, why am I reading the gossip book of the year, Spare, by Prince Harry? I don't know--but I did get it from my Cloud Library account through my public library, I did not put out money for it beyond taxes.
Before I picked it up, I figured it would be a book about a guy who doesn't want to work in the family business but who still wants to get payments from it. I don't have any problem with Harry saying that the family business of getting your picture taken and being the public face of Great Britain was not for him. You couldn't pay me enough to take that job. There has been plenty in the press about the way Prince Charles was raised and about the marriage of Charles and Diana and the death of Diana that I never figured Harry and William had the ideal childhood. I figured it would be a lot of "poor me".
