Prince Harry is reportedly outraged that his memoir, titled “Spare” is already half off in book stores in London and the US.
His reps claim the book sold over 400,000 copies across all formats, making it the fastest selling non-fiction book on the first day of sales.
Harry is accusing Buckingham Palace of waging a campaign against him to hurt his book sales.
He told Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” that the royals are “uncomfortable and scared” by the revelations in his memoir.
Colbert asked him, “Do you think that right now there is an active campaign by the rest of your family, by the royal house, as it were, to undermine this book and you?”
“Of course,” Harry replied, before adding that the sabotage was “mainly by the British press,” who were “aided and abetted by the palace.”
Harry arrived at the TV studio in NYC surrounded by heavily armed bodyguards. According to reports, Harry is concerned for his life after he bragged about killing 25 Taliban militants while serving as an Apache helicopter copilot gunner in Afghanistan in 2012-2013.
In his memoir, Harry referred to the dead Taliban militants as “chess pieces.” He said he didn’t see them as “people”.
His words prompted death threats from the Taliban and angered citizens in Afghanistan.
Harry slammed the British press for misrepresenting his words in his book.
“My words are not dangerous, but the spin of my words are very dangerous to my family,” he said of wife Meghan Markle and their kids, Archie and Lili.
“And that is a choice they’ve made,” he said, while taking a sip of tequila poured for him by Colbert.
