Prince William ignores question about brother Harry's Spare book

Prince William refused to be drawn on Prince Harry's explosive new memoir, Spare, when asked during a visit to Birkenhead.

The Prince and Princess of Wales visited Liverpool and Wirral on Thursday to meet individuals working across the healthcare sector, to thank them for their ongoing efforts. While here, they officially opened the new Royal Liverpool University Hospital.

His Royal Highness also met a critical care team he spoke to on a video call back in 2020, during the covid pandemic.

Afterwards, the Royals travelled to the Open Door Charity, a Wirral organisation that supports young adults across Merseyside with their mental health. Open Door provides members with free, immediate access to a range of creative therapy options.

Their Royal Highnesses visited the charity's flagship Bloom Building to meet volunteers, mentors and staff. They sat down for a round table discussion about mental health together, where Princess Kate said it is "such an exciting idea to have a one-stop place for this kind of support".

As the Prince and Princess left the building, one journalist in the press area shouted to William: "Have you had chance to read your brother's book at all?"

William's response was to simply ignore the man, and head towards the car waiting outside.
