The Cut branded Prince Harry’s upcoming memoir, Spare, as “pure chaos” while poking fun at his “frozen penis” and “mushroom trip” in a scathing Instagram post.
The statement from New York Magazine’s The Cut comes just five months after Prince Harry’s wife Meghan Markle posed on the magazine’s cover and sat down with him for a rare, intimate interview – in which she spoke candidly about her time as royal, as well as hers and Harry’s decision to leave the monarchy,
After it came out in August, Meghan got angry at her comments and later admitted she was too “open” and “trusting” to the interviewer and that she originally intended to only talk about her and Harry’s upcoming projects.
Now The Cut has slammed Harry’s new book, which is due to premiere on January 10th, however numerous extracts were leaked last week after it was accidentally released early in Spain.

British actress Jameela Jamil, who left an angry comment in defense of Prince Harry, hinted that the publication called the book “unhinged” in its original caption
While sharing an article discussing many of 38-year-old Harry’s shocking revelations in the tome, the outlet posted a picture of the Duke of Sussex to Instagram on Sunday with the words “Spare is pure chaos” written at the top in bold Writing.
The caption reads: “There’s TMI and then whatever happens here. A mushroom trip at Courtney Cox? Blame William & Kate for his infamous Nazi Halloween costume? Frozen penis?
“There’s TMI and then whatever happens here,” reads the current caption. “Prince Harry’s new book, Spare, is full of wild claims and revelations”

British actress Jameela Jamil left an angry comment in defense of Prince Harry, clapping back at the publication for her strident criticism in the comments section.
It’s sadly unclear what the caption said when it was first published, but it appears it was edited – and she hinted that the publication may have called the book “unhinged” in its original caption.
“Did it get out of hand, or is it a genius way to get all your corpses out of the closet so nobody can threaten/embarrass you with anything because it’s yours and $40 million was paid for it?” she asked.
“After six years of smear campaigns, maybe it’s more empowering to share on your own terms.”
However, some people agreed with The Cut and criticized Harry.
“For someone who says they crave privacy for their family, no one can stop plastering all of their private information everywhere. I guess all the millions are worth it?’ said another person.
Someone else simply wrote, “Shut up Harry,” while another user commented, “This man needs some help… He doesn’t bring truth, he brings more chaos.”

Other Instagram users slammed The Cut for scrutinizing the book in the comments section, with one person writing, “Putting out flashy tidbit headlines without context is… irresponsible and reminds me of the media negativity over which he has spoken. Personally, I’m really looking forward to reading this book.’
“Can you really read the damn book and then comment instead of judging it by the rota-chosen sections the rota yelled about?” someone else asked.
“The very media Harry is critical of… Wonder why nothing is said about his love for his wife or children?
“The media doesn’t want to emphasize the stuff that’s likely to be in the book. It really lacks critical thinking.”
“Let him speak his truth,” urged another commenter, while a fourth added, “I think it’s been a long time in the works to share his side of the story, probably before he got married.” I’m here for that and more power for him.’
In his book, Harry made a series of explosive confessions, including that he used cocaine as a teenager, killed 25 Taliban militants while serving in the military, and that it was his brother, Prince William, and his wife, Kate Middleton, who did the encouraging him to wear his infamous Nazi costume to a party in 2005.
However, some people agreed with The Cut and criticized Harry, with one person calling him “really desperate to say the spotlight”.

He also claimed that William, 40, once physically assaulted him during an altercation in 2019 over his wife Meghan, 41.
He said his older brother called the former actress “difficult,” “rude,” and “abrasive” before it got physical.
“He grabbed my collar, tore off my necklace and threw me to the ground,” he reportedly wrote.
“I landed on the dog’s bowl, which broke under my back and the pieces cut into me.”
In addition to his new memoir, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex last month released a six-part Netflix documentary called Harry & Meghan, which featured a slew of other bombshell allegations about their time as royals.
In her cover story with The Cut last August, Meghan spoke about “healing” and learning to “feel free” again after she and Harry decided to step down from the monarchy and move to the US in 2020.
“By our very existence we have disrupted the dynamics of the hierarchy. So we say, “Okay, well, let’s get out of here. Gladly,” she said.
She also said that what she and Prince Harry asked for before cutting ties with the royals was not “reinventing the wheel”.
The outlet claimed that the mother-of-two then listed a “handful of princes and princesses and dukes who have exactly the arrangement they wanted,” though none of those royals were named in the article.

At the time, Harry and Meghan were in the process of filming the Netflix series, and the Suits star also opened up about why they decided to document their journey in the documentary.
“The part of my life that I couldn’t share, that people couldn’t see, is our love story,” she explained, before reciting a line from the speech she gave at her wedding to Harry: “The powerful knowledge that above all, love wins.”
“I hope that’s how people feel when they see content or projects that we’re working on.”
Afterwards, Meghan faced backlash online after readers found it [the interview] to be snappy,” says Variety writer Matt Donnelly.
Meghan then admitted she was too “trusting and open” with the author, saying it was always just meant to focus on her podcast Archetypes, as well as her and Harry’s other projects – and not her time in the royal family .
‘The [New York] The story should support Archetypes and focus on our projects,” she told Variety.
“I’ve had some time to think about it. Part of me is just very trusting, really open – that’s how I move in the world.”
The Duchess of Sussex added that she doesn’t want to lose the “trustworthy” part of herself and explained that she could “survive” the controversy.
“I have to remember that I never want to be so jaded that that part of me goes away. So despite all these things? Continue. I can survive it,’ she said.
