In a chapter where Prince Harry informed William and Kate about Meghan Markle, the duo's reaction was reportedly surprising for him. As reported by Us Weekly, the para in Spare detailed just how worried the Duke of Sussex was about his brother and sister-in-law's finding out that he was dating an American actress. He wrote, "I was baffled until Willy and Kate explained that they were regular — nay, religious — viewers of Suits."

I’ve been worrying about the wrong thing. All this time I’d thought Willy and Kate might not welcome Meg into the family, but now I had to worry about them hounding her for an autograph."
