Prince Harry's forthcoming memoir has been slammed as a "self-pity" book, a royal expert has said.
The book is expected to send shockwaves through the Royal Family following his departure from The Firm with his wife, Meghan Markle.
Royal Commentator Richard Eden has pointed out the privileges Harry has received throughout his life and slammed the title of his book.

Speaking to Palace Confidential, via The Express, Eden said: "For me, it's so significant that word Spare. It just conjures up so many images of self-pity really."
He added: "It's all sort of woe is me, I've had such a hard time and everything.
"You forget this is a prince born into privilege, every privilege in the world and now he's got American firms like Netflix throwing millions at him.
"Spare us the self-pity!"
Royal fans were excited to pick up a copy in the Autumn but the release was pushed back to January, with many suspecting the death of The Queen being the reason.
Buckingham Palace is now likely preparing itself for potentially damaging headlines when the book is released on January 10.
In a press release, Penguin Random House said: "Spare takes readers immediately back to one of the most searing images of the 20th century: two young boys, two princes, walking behind their mother's coffin as the world watched in sorrow – and horror.
"As Diana, Princess of Wales, was laid to rest, billions wondered what the princes must be thinking and feeling – and how their lives would play out from that point on.
"For Harry, this is his story at last."
It continued: "With its raw, unflinching honesty, Spare is a landmark publication full of insight, revelation, self-examination, and hard-won wisdom about the eternal power of love over grief."
The public can now only speculate to what degree Harry will discuss his mother's passing, his troubles with his brother and his father's rise to the throne.
