The Queen took a brutal, nine-word swing at King Charles during a private phone call with Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex claims in his explosive book.
Spare was officially released today (Tuesday, January 10) with royal fans rushing to bookshops across the country to get their hands on a copy.
In one section, discussing the days prior to him and wife Meghan Markle announcing they were stepping back as senior working royals, Harry recalls a phone call with his grandmother.

He writes: "We're coming back to Britain, I said. We'd love to see you.
"I told her explicitly that we hoped to discuss with her our plan to create a different working arrangement."
Harry says that the Queen "wasn't pleased", but nor "was she shocked", and agreed to the meeting.
"Yes, of course! I'm free all week. The diary is clear," Harry claims the Queen told him.
The Queen then invited Harry and Meghan to stay overnight at Sandringham after their meeting, given that they would be exhausted from their journey. Harry agreed.

He then writes that the Queen asked whether he would be visiting Charles while back in the UK.
She asked: "Are you planning to see your father too?"
Harry replied: "I asked, but he said it's impossible. He's in Scotland and can't leave until the end of the week."
He writes that she made a "sigh or a knowing grunt" before saying: "I have only one thing to say about that."
Then came the Queen's nine-word dig at Charles, seemingly disapproving of what Harry had told her his father had said.
"Your father always does what he wants to do."
Harry goes on to claim that royal courtiers blocked the meeting with the Queen.
The Sussexes released the statement announcing their decision to step back from their royal roles on January 8, 2020, just five days after Harry claims that phone call with his grandmother took place.
