EXPLOSIVE CLAIMS: Exclusive first look as Prince Harry's Spare book goes on sale

Despite finding it hard to express the situation to his family, the famously-private prince did not hold back in his new book. He fully detailed the extent of his suffering, giving very personal details about his anatomy, and also the remedies he used to help him recover.
Explaining his reluctance to talk to both family and doctors, Harry said his big fear was his private medical details leaking and appearing on the front pages of the newspapers. He did however finally seek help - receiving advice from a family friend about a cream to use, and a Harley Street doctor.
