The heir and the spare: Prince Harry’s memoir hits shelves



In one of the most anticipated memoirs of 2023, Prince Harry’s picture from inside the Royal Family has hit shelves

Prince Harry’s 416-page memoir offers a string of sensational claims and accusations including details surrounding his mother’s death; and his father’s marriage to Queen Consort, Camilla; and his own struggles with mental health.

In his book, ‘Spare‘, the 38-year-old prince writes about physical conflict with his brother, William, Prince of Wales.

In an interview with CBS’ 60 Minutes, Harry said “it wasn’t pleasant at all. And he [William] snapped. And he pushed me to the floor.”

He told journalist Anderson Cooper the altercation was centred around “certain things”, which his brother was told “by people within his office”.

“And at the same time, he was consuming a lot of the tabloid press, a lot of the stories. And he had a few issues, which were based not on reality. And I was defending my wife. And he was coming for my wife.”


Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle was not there at the time. But he reportedly sustained a cut to his back. “He apologised afterwards. It was a pretty nasty experience,” he said.

The death of his mother, Princess Diana

Prince Harry recalls the death of his mother, Diana, Princess of Wales. Aged 12, he writes how his father did not hug him when Diana passed away.

He told CBS, he felt guilty at his mother’s funeral. “The people that we were meeting were showing more emotion than we were showing,” he said.

As part of Prince Harry’s bid to receive closure for his mother’s death, he sought to replicate the same journey made on the night of Diana’s death.

However, he writes about how it left him with more questions rather than answers.

Harry and William did not want their father to marry Camilla

Harry and William did not want their father to marry Camilla. “We thought it was going to cause more harm than good,” he said.

“If you are led to believe as a member of the family that being on the front page is going to improve your reputation then that’s what you’re going to do.”


The book also reveals Harry and William held seperate meetings with Camilla before she formally became part of the family.

Turning to drugs and alcohol

Harry admitted to using cocaine on several occasions. He writes “it wasn’t much fun and it did not make me feel especially happy as it seemed to do to everyone else, but it did make me feel different, and that was my main objective.”

He also shed some light on his time at Eton College, where he smoked cannabis in a bathroom while his bodyguards were outside.

When he was 17, Harry shares the story of how he lost his virginity to an older woman in a field.

Killing Taliban fighters in Afghanistan

Upon his posting to Afghanistan, he said he found his calling.

He described the deaths of 25 Taliban fighters as “chess pieces removed from the board”.

“It wasn’t a statistic that filled me with pride but nor did it leave me ashamed.”


He served as a helicopter pilot in Afghanistan during 2012–13, where he took part in six missions.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster



Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

U.S. home prices surge 47%



American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.
