Prince Harry ghostwriter questions King’s link to TK Maxx

The ghostwriter of Prince Harry’s memoir has claimed that TK Maxx attempted to question Spare because of the store’s charitable links with the King. The Duke of Sussex revealed in the book that he would often go to the discount store for his “everyday casual clothes” and was a fan of its “once-a-year sale”.

However, a TK Maxx spokeswoman has responded that the store did not do sales but instead offered savings “all year round”.

Harry’s ghostwriter, J R Moehringer, cited the response in a long article he authored for the New Yorker, claiming that an “amorphous campaign” was launched within days by critics who asserted it was strewn with errors.

He wrote: “In one section of the book, for instance, Harry reveals that he used to live for the yearly sales at TK Maxx, the discount clothing chain.

“Not so fast, said the monarchists at TK Maxx corporate, who rushed out a statement declaring that TK Maxx never has sales, just great savings all the time!”

Moehringer mentioned that people worldwide responded by posting pictures of TK Maxx publicising sales on its official Twitter account, The Telegraph reports.

He wrote: “Surely TK Maxx’s effort to discredit Harry’s memoir was unrelated to the company’s long-standing partnership with Prince Charles and his charitable trust.”

TK Maxx’s affiliation with The Prince’s Trust since 2013 through its Get Into and Achieve programmes, which helps young people get employed, is the primary sponsor of the Prince’s Trust Awards.

Moehringer’s claims are yet to receive a response from the store.

The author also wrote of how he had first become involved in the book in Summer 2020, when someone asked if he would be interested via text.

He initially agreed to chat to Harry out of curiosity, having promised his wife he would “never again” ghost write another book.

“I wondered what the real story was,” he confessed.

“I wondered if we’d have any chemistry.

“We did, and there was, I think, a surprising reason.

“Princess Diana had died 23 years before our first conversation, and my mother, Dorothy Moehringer, had just died, and our griefs felt equally fresh.”

Despite initial concerns he eventually agreed to take on the project.

Moehringer was worried Harry was uncertain about how much he wished to say, and the predictable whirlwind that would hit upon the book reaching bookshelves regardless of the words inside.

He added: “In retrospect, though I think I selfishly welcomed the idea of being able to speak with someone, an expert, about that never-ending feeling of wishing you could call your mom.”
