The artful todger: The Nose looks at ‘Spare’ and the present Prince Harry moment

Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex’s memoir, ‘Spare.’

This week’s Nose has no prince autopilot button that you can press and it just takes you away.

The English-language edition of Prince Harry, The Duke of Sussex’s Spare reportedly sold 1.43 million copies on the day it was published and 3.2 million copies in its first week. It is now the fastest-selling non-fiction book ever published.

And then there’s Harry & Meghan, the six-part docuseries about Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex. Its December debut was the biggest ever for a Netflix documentary, with a total of 81.6 million hours watched, amounting to more than 28 million households, over its first four days, according to Netflix.

And there’s the 60 Minutesinterview and the Late Showinterview and the ITV interview and all their attendant outsized audience numbers.

This week’s Nose looks at the present Prince Harry moment.

Some other stuff that happened this week, give or take:


  • Theresa Cramer: A freelance writer and editor and the co-founder of Quiet Corner Communications
  • Taneisha Duggan: Associate producer at Octopus Theatricals
  • Carolyn Paine: An actress, comedian, and dancer; she is founder, director, and choreographer of CONNetic Dance
