Prince Harry’s Ghostwriter Jr Moehringer Opens Up
The anonymous author of Prince Harry’s candid memoir, Spare, is putting the record straight. J. R. Moehringer, the author of The Tender Bar and a recent New Yorker essay, talked openly about spending two years writing the book with the Duke of Sussex. The piece describes his strong friendship with the royals, from their argument that almost caused their professional relationship to cease to what it was like to temporarily reside in their California home with Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan.
Moehringer remembers discussing the book’s changes with Harry during a late-night Zoom conference. The two couldn’t agree on handling a passage in the book where Harry is enduring gruesome military training that replicates the experience of being kidnapped and tortured by terrorists.
In addition to beating, starving, and stripping him, the fictitious kidnappers also throw obscenities at him at one point, one of which is a “vile dig” at his late mother, Princess Diana. Moehringer disagreed with Harry’s insistence that this novel chapter concludes with a clever retort he launched at the kidnapper.
Although this wasn’t the first time Harry and I had argued, it felt different; it felt as if we were hurtling toward some decisive rupture, partly because Harry was no longer saying anything. He was glaring into the camera. Finally, he exhaled and calmly explained that all his life, people had belittled his intellectual capabilities, and this flash of cleverness proved that, even after being kicked and punched and deprived of sleep and food, he had his wits about him.
Finally, Moehringer persuaded the prince to delete the witticism from the line by claiming that it unduly weakens the narrative impact of the story. After giving in, Harry told the writer, “I enjoy getting you worked up like that.” Moehringer noted that his opinion of the prince was mainly favorable, notwithstanding their occasional editorial differences.
“I simply liked the guy. He laughed when I immediately addressed him as a dude, he said. “As he sketched out his story, I found it both relevant and aggravating. He has received horrific treatment from both strangers and close friends. Moehringer’s mother had recently passed away when he and Harry first met, the author said, and this caused the two of them to become close.

“I was unsure about our potential for chemistry. We did, and I believe there was a surprise explanation. Before our first chat, Princess Diana had passed away 23 years, and my mother, Dorothy Moehringer, had recently passed away. Despite this, our losses were equally recent, he said. Later, he continued, “In retrospect, though, I think I selfishly welcomed the idea of being able to speak with someone, an expert, about that never-ending feeling of wishing you could call your mom.”
Throughout writing the book, Moehringer visited Harry and Meghan at their Montecito home three times: once with his wife and kids and twice by himself. He said, “Harry won the heart of my daughter, Gracie, with his vast Moana scholarship; his favorite scene, he told her, is when Heihei, the silly chicken, finds himself lost at sea.”
Meghan and Archie would stop by Moehringer’s place for an afternoon stroll. Meghan constantly brought me trays of food and treats since she knew I missed my family. The children of Moehringer received toys from the Duchess as well. When word got out that Moehringer was ghostwriting Harry’s book and that it would be released, the media immediately pursued the author and his family.
He talked about how terrible it was to have paparazzi follow him and his wife as they dropped off their son at preschool and how he felt helpless to stop the endless false stories published about him. Moehringer called Harry to vent his annoyance with the media attention. Moehringer also thought about Harry’s real motivation for releasing Spare.
Harry couldn’t help but wish that Spare would refute every untruth that had ever been written about him, even if I always placed a premium on scenes and narration, the author remarked. Naturally, he was aware that some people would initially be horrified.
Why in the world would Harry bring that up? However, he hoped they would soon realize it because someone else had discussed it and misspoken about it. According to earlier reports, the royal family was said to be “rattled” after the book’s release in January. According to a royal insider, “There was a feeling that whatever Harry said in his book would just be news today, gone tomorrow.”

But now, everything is scrutinized because of the level of detail provided in the book concerning particular interactions with the media. In addition, a source claimed that Prince William, who is accused in Spare of some serious offenses, including arranging a fight between Harry and himself following a dispute over Meghan, felt “devastated.”
The source said, “He’s not ignoring the things his brother has shared.” The matter needs to be resolved, but this has given me pause. Harry recently traveled to London to attend his father, King Charles III,’s coronation. Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, the couple’s two children, and Meghan did not accompany him.
