Prince Harry’s Ghostwriter tackles the differences between “memory and fact” as the “spare” memories mistakes make headlines.
J. R. Moehringer took to Twitter on Wednesday to eliminate “inadvertent errors” with a quote from Mary Karr’s “The Art of Memoirs.”
“The line between memory and fact is blurred, interpretation and fact,” the excerpt reads.
“There are inadvertent mistakes like that outside of the wazoo.”
The tweet came a day after the 38-year-old Duke of Sussex memoir book hits US shelves.
Harry didn’t hold back in his revealing barrage, even accusing Prince William of physically assault him in 2019.
Eagle-eyed readers have accused the former military pilot of make “errors of fact” in the memories
The duke, for example, claimed that he was in a boarding school when learned of the Queen Mother’s death in March 2002, with multiple reports setting the record straight.
The then-teenager was reportedly on a ski trip to Switzerland at the time with William and King Charles III.
Harry also wrote that he is the “great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather” of King Henry VI, but many social media users have pointed out that the sovereign only she had a son, who died in battle before having children. of his own
“Prince Harry can’t even verify his own family tree as he’s under the impression he’s a descendant of King Henry VI, whose son died childless at 17,” one person wrote. “But of course, we all create.”
In addition, Air New Zealand told the New Zealand Herald that they “never operated flights” between Mexico and Britain after Harry recalled buying a “first class ticket” for Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle.
The prince has yet to address the inaccuracies, telling Stephen Colbert on Tuesday that his book is “history [getting] all right.”
Twitter users scoffed at this statement in his responses to Moehringer’s tweet.
“The problem with your facts not being correct is that you are writing this for ‘history,’” wrote one, while another he called the excuse “gashlighting”.
Others, however, praised the author of “Tender Bar” for helping Harry “speak his truth so clearly”.
