I’ve been a royal watcher for decades; co-host of the Royally Obsessed podcast with Roberta Fiorito for three years. Even I wasn’t expecting the range of truth bombs Prince Harry selected to drop in his new memoir Spare, out today.

Immediately following, a Spanish bookstore broke the embargo and sold copies early, sparking a frenzy. As royal reporters the world over raced to translate, the sheer volume of headlines caused me to do something that surprised me: I looked away.
