For Prince Harry, there's greater risk than reward in sharing more.
The Duke of Sussex revealed that there were further details he opted not to include in his tell-all memoir, Spare, so he could avoid strains in his relationship with brother Prince William and father King Charles III.
"There are some things that have happened, especially between me and my brother, and to some extent between me and my father, that I just don't want the world to know," Harry told The Telegraph on Jan. 13. "Because I don't think they would ever forgive me."
As for how much material didn't make into Spare, which was released on Jan. 10, Harry admitted half of the pages were cut down.
"The first draft was different," he said. "It was 800 pages, and now it's down to 400 pages. It could have been two books, put it that way. And the hard bit was taking things out."
In Spare, Harry detailed various personal points of his life, including an alleged physical altercation with William, the mourning of his mother Princess Diana and other conflicts with the royal family. Regardless of where things stand now between him and the royals, Harry told U.K. station ITV that there's a "100 percent" chance of reconciliation on his end—although he said his family have "shown absolutely no willingness to reconcile up until this point."
"Forgiveness is 100 percent a possibility because I would like to get my father back," he said on Jan. 8. "I would like to have my brother back. At the moment, I don't recognize them, as much as they probably don't recognize me."
