Prince Harry’s Team Took Over the Archewell Site to Congratulate Him on the Release of ‘Spare’

Prince Harry's long-awaited memoir, Spare, has finally hit shelves, and in order to celebrate the Duke of Sussex's achievement, some of those who have worked closely beside him decided to take over the Archewell site to send him a message of congratulations.

On January 10 (aka the day of the book's publication), a new post appeared on the Archewell Foundation's homepage, which was titled, “Congratulations Prince Harry.”

Once opened, a small note was attached, which said, “A huge congratulations to Prince Harry on the release of his memoir, Spare. As your team, we are proud to stand beside you, and celebrate you as the world finally hears your story in your words. Thank you for your courage, honesty, humor and light. You’ve inspired us all.”

Then, the message was signed “with admiration” from the duke's staff and team at Archewell, as well as The Private Office of The Duke & Duchess of Sussex.

Since Spare's release, the book has already smashed records, per a report from Penguin Random House, where they said the English-language edition of the book had sold 1.4 million copies in its first day. They wrote, “The first full day of sales of Spare represents the largest first-day sales total for any nonfiction book ever published by Penguin Random House, the world’s largest trade publisher.”

In support of the memoir, the Duke of Sussex has done a number of high-profile interviews, including a 60 Minutes sit-down with Anderson Cooper and a 90-minute conversation with Tom Bradby in the U.K.
