Despite a smooth start, Prince Harry further revealed how Meghan had to excuse herself from the dinner party after she complained of an upset stomach.

Elsewhere in his eye-opening memoir, Prince Harry revealed that he was referred to as the Spare, even by his family members.

In extracts from his memoir, Spare, which will be officially released on 10 January, the Duke of Sussex said that the press’ nicknames for William and Harry – the Heir and the Spare – were also used by his parents, Charles and Diana, as well as the late Queen Elizabeth II and Duke of Edinburgh.

In a leaked extract published by The Guardian newspaper, Harry also claims that King Charles supposedly said to his wife Diana on the day of Harry’s birth: “Wonderful! Now you’ve given me an heir and a spare – my work is done.”
