Spare: Prince Harry says meeting supermodels during puberty was “very confusing”

Prince Harry said that meeting models as a teenager was very confusing for him. In his new memoir which came out on January 10, the Duke of Sussex said that he had in the past had memory problems and his therapist had helped to unlock some of them including this one.

He said he recalled being introduced to Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and Claudia Schaffer who were all supermodels in the 90’s together during his puberty with his brother Prince William.

Memory kicks back

In an excerpt from his book the 38 year old Prince said that, “All my life I’d told people I couldn’t remember the past, couldn’t remember my mum, but I never gave anyone the full picture. My memory was dead. Now through months of therapy, my memory twitched, kicked, sputtered. It came to life.”

He wrote about recalling memories with his mother, waking up in Kensington Palace and jumping on his mother’s waterbed with his brother.

“I remembered Willy and me joining her for a chat with Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer and Cindy Crawford. Very confusing. Especially for two shy boys at or about the age of puberty.”

The three supermodels would often grace covers of magazines, be on runways and featured on big fashion campaigns in the 90’s and were icons of that era. Those must have made his puberty days interesting.

Prince Harry’s book Spare has become the UK’s fastest selling memoir ever.

“We always knew this book would fly but it is exceeding even our most bullish expectations. As far as we know the only books to have sold more in their first day are those starring the other Harry (Potter),” said Transworld Penguin Random House managing director Larry Findlay.

Puberty Issues

BBC royal correspondent Sean Coughlan describes the book as the longest angry drunk text ever sent as he said it feels like part confession, part rant and part love letter.

Coughlan describes it as disarmingly frank and intimate – showing the sheer weirdness of Prince Harry’s often isolated life. And it’s the small details, rather than the set-piece moments that give a glimpse of how little we really knew.

In a Washington Post review by Louis Bayard the book is described as good natured, rancorous, humorous, self-righteous, self-deprecating, long-winded and somewhat bewildering.

The title, for those not in the know reflects the nickname Harry got in infancy, the second-born “Spare” to the heir to the throne which is his older brother William.

“I was the shadow, the support, the Plan B. I was brought into the world in case something happened to Willy.”

What follows is 400-plus pages of resentment, anger, humor and possibly the truth wrapped up in one big fat book.

And what is interesting is the part where he remembers his puberty days.
