Morton teamed with the late Princess

For the 1992 tell-all, Morton notably collaborated with Harry's late mother. Diana approached Morton after she found that the author was penning a book about her via a friend. James Colthurst, a friend of the two, served as a go-between for them as they worked covertly on the book. In the letter, Diana disclosed marital issues with her husband and Camilla Parker Bowles, now the Queen Consort. Behind palace walls, she revealed how their romance derailed her marriage. Diana's divorce from Charles was officially formalized in 1996, the year before she passed away at age 36.

The Crown details Morton's experience

The most recent season of Netflix's dramatized royal drama "The Crown" details Morton's experience working with the "People's Princess." Elizabeth Debicki portrays Diana, and Andrew Steele plays Morton in it.

Title The heir and the spare

The memoir title appears to relate to "the heir and the spare," a term frequently used to refer to royal siblings. William, Harry's brother and current Prince of Wales is the rightful successor to the British throne. Harry, now 38, was immediately behind William, 40, in the line of succession when he was born, but he has since fallen behind. After the Queen passed away, their father ascended to the throne.
