According to the publisher, Prince Harry’s book “Spare” broke Penguin Random House’s sales record by selling 1.4 million English-language copies on its first day in the UK, US, and Canada.
The statistics were released at the same time as the first survey conducted since the memoir’s release revealed a continued decline in Harry’s popularity in the UK.
The sales surpass the previous first-day non-fiction record set by Penguin Random House for Barack Obama’s “A Promised Land.”
The book is just one of many lucrative contracts that Harry and his American bride Meghan have signed in an effort to profit from their royal ties.
Spare had a two million copy initial printing in the US, but Penguin Random House reports that more copies have now been ordered to meet demand.
