Royal specialists have praised Prince Harry‘s “almost praiseworthy” ability to employ “known narrative tropes” to their maximum extent, including comments about his “wicked stepmother” and “chilly father.”

These disclosures were made by writer Pauline Maclaran in an article for the New Zealand Herald.

She wrote in it, “The release of Spare is a dramatic moment.” Prince Harry’s many revelations about his life as a member of the royal family often double as criticisms of his family members.

“At the heart of Harry’s narrative is his defense of his wife, Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, against her persecution by the tabloid press and the alleged complicity of his family in this.”

The writer also said, “Harry’s book is full of familiar narrative tropes. There is his wicked stepmother, Camilla, whom he accuses of scheming with the press. And the emotional coldness of his father, whom he claims did not hug him on telling him of his mother, Diana‘s, death.”

“Harry is the book’s heroic protagonist. He labels his brother William his “arch nemesis”, recalling numerous incidences of sibling antagonism, including a violent brawl. All of the emotional components are present to keep the royal family soap opera going for a long time.

“It is exactly these archetypal human tensions—arch nemeses, wicked stepmothers—that are so easily relatable to ordinary family life that encourage soap opera fandom and build audience empathy with the characters.”
