Prince Harry’s memoir – level 1

12-01-2023 15:00

Prince Harry belongs to the British royal family. He is the younger son of King Charles. His brother is Prince William.

Harry writes a book about his life. The week, the book is in shops. It sells very fast in the UK. People buy 400,000 copies already. Harry writes about when his mother Princess Diana dies. He is only 12 years old when it happens. Her death is very hard for him. He takes drugs to feel better.

Later, Harry is a soldier. He fights in Afghanistan. He kills 25 people there.

Harry also speaks about problems with his brother and stepmother Camilla. The royal family do not say what they think about the book.

Difficult words: copy (one book, magazine, newspaper, or other work), stepmother (a woman who is married to someone’s father, but she is not the original mother of the person).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
