Talk about the ultimate dysfunctional family - that would be the royal family of today. We've heard so much about Harry and Meghan's problems and how they were treated, so it's interesting to read Harry's take on what happened. It's hard to believe that Harry and William's relationship is as fractured and ugly as Harry states it is, but, if so, it is really sad. The section about Harry's involvement in the war in Afghanistan is interesting, although somewhat lengthy. Still not sure if I can believe everything he wrote, but I came away from this having a more positive view of Harry than I had previously, given that the death of his mother caused him great unresolved trauma for a very long time.… (mais)

Väga meeldiv üllatus, kuna lugema asudes ma ei arvanud, et raamat võiks mulle meeldida. Ma ei ole Briti kuningakoja vastu kunagi mingit erilist huvi tundnud, aga sellest raamatust on juba ette nii palju räägitud, et uudishimu sai võitu. Ja mul on väga hea meel.
Kuulasin seda audios, mida autor ise (suurepäraselt) sisse luges ja pean tunnistama, et kaks päaeva praktiliselt jutti, mida lähemale tänapäevale lugu jõudis, seda huvitavamaks läks.

Harry is a good narrator and I enjoyed listening to this but I knocked off a star since a lot of it was familiar already.

I don’t suppose that any of us will ever know the full truth but I’m inclined to believe most of what he says. It’s not hard to believe he was traumatized by Diana’s death and that the weird, formal, fishbowl of royal life wasn’t great for his mental health. He didn’t ask for any of that and can’t be blamed for how that great loss made him feel. I don’t know how anybody can listen to the first half of this book and not feel bad about how lonely he seemed to be.

The rest of the drama between Harry, Charles, and William is sad. I think they are all right from their own POV. Hopefully someday they can all move past it but probably not. If I were a Harry, I’d have done whatever I could to get away from that life.

"Pa didn't support Willy and me, and our families, out of any largesse. That was his job. That was the whole deal. We agreed to serve the monarch, go wherever we were sent, do whatever we were told, surrender our autonomy, keep our hands and feet inside the gilded cage at all times, and in exchange the keepers of the cage agreed to feed and clothe us."

"Jesus, I thought, are we really such a country of insufferable snobs?"

"Being royal, it turned out, wasn't all that far from being onstage. Acting was acting, no matter the context."
