Duchess Meghan thinks Harry will win a Grammy for Spare’s audiobook

Everyone has recommended the audiobook version of Prince Harry’s Spare because he has such a nice voice, and he brings some humor and levity to some of Spare’s passages. He even half-sings a little bit, some lyrics from the Spice Girls and Elton John. I just stuck with the print edition of the book though, I prefer to read, although I’ve enjoyed the audio clips posted on social media and I’m aware that the audio has been a HUGE hit with TikTokers. Well, does this mean that Harry is a shoo-in for next year’s Spoken Word Grammy Award? I guess.

Meghan Markle is sure husband Prince Harry will be adding Grammy-winner to his list of accolades thanks to his latest memoir. An entertainment industry insider tells DailyMail.com that the Duchess and her team think Harry is a ‘shoo-in’ to win the Grammy for Best Spoken Word (Best Audiobook, Narration & Storytelling Recording) for the audiobook of his memoir Spare at next year’s ceremony.

‘He’s a natural storyteller, has a soothing voice and even sings on the audio version,’ the source says.

At one point in the audiobook, Harry sings a verse of Elton John’s Your Song when discussing the tribute concert for the 10th anniversary of Princess Diana’s death.

‘It was Harry’s decision to sing Elton John’s song in the audiobook. Who knew he could sing? Meghan thinks he’s up there with President Obama, who won the same award a few years back,’ the source adds.

This year’s Grammy Awards are on February 5, and the nominees for Best Spoken Word Album are Viola Davis, Questlove, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Jamie Foxx and Mel Brooks.

Meghan hopes her husband will be considered for the 2024 award.

‘There’s even been talk about Harry appearing on the upcoming Academy Awards as a possible presenter [in March],’ the insider adds.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, the Mail doesn’t have any industry sources who know what Meghan thinks. They just included her in this story because they’re obsessed with her. It’s an obvious story, and of course Harry will be a top contender for the Spoken Word Grammy next year – Spare’s audio sales pretty much guarantee him a nomination, and the cherry on top is that Harry is very good at book-narration. As for the rumors of an Oscar presenter slot… we’ve heard those rumors in years past. In retrospect, I’m glad they didn’t go to last year’s Oscars, they would have ended up in the middle of the Will Smith/Chris Rock slap situation. So, will they come to this year’s Oscars? Why not, I hope they do. I still feel like they’re pretty much guaranteed to get invitations to the Vanity Fair Oscar party too.

    Naw, this is Viola’s year. The Grammy will cement her EGOT status.

  2. Nikki (Toronto) says:

    The source of this was a tweet by a Squaddie who was merely sharing her fantasy. I still can’t believe they created a story out of it.

    • Chloe says:

      I was about to say this. Thank you for putting it out here because it’s important to call this out.

    • Amy Bee says:

      That squaddie should have had more sense than to verbalize her fantasy on twitter.

      • Lori says:

        Yeah DM regularly shops Twitter and tiktok for stories and headlines. And gives absolutely zero credit or reference, but calls it insider info. Something to be aware of even when reading negative headlines. DM et al are lazy.

      • Laura D says:

        @Amy Bee I disagree. I think the more people can prove that these people don’t have “real” sources the better it will be for journalism in the long run. The Mail and Jeremy Vine Show have been caught quoting a parody Twitter account on important issues.

      • Petra (Brazen Archetyped Phenomenal Woman) says:

        @Amy Bee, you’re using sarcasm here…I hope.

      • Bex says:

        Actually, that’s ridiculous to claim that a random Twitter user should be “more careful” when dealing with a tabloid that is lying. There was nothing wrong with their tweet.

        The problem is and will always be the billionaire-owned tabloid who mined content from Twitter and deliberately misattributed a quote.

        It’s been six years of this. There is NOTHING anyone could do that will stop them from this bad reporting. It’s ridiculous at this point, and tiring when people chose to blame supporters for a tabloid’s misinformation.

      • Emily_C says:

        That’s silly. The Daily Heil’s gonna heil. You can’t live your life in fear of them.

    • L4Frimaire says:

      Saw this being discussed on Twitter. Some squaddies said something about a Grammy and a fan podcast mentioned this, and next thing it’s in tabloid’s as a “source” or friend. The tabloids go through tweets to use as gossip and news. They’re so desperate for Sussex content, and this shows how the UK media have the loosest definition of sources and facts known to man. I once saw something I tweeted end up in an article once, just my random opinion. Also, if his audiobook does win a Grammy, well good for him.

    • ChillinginDC says:

      I know. I am baffled anyone even wrote anything on this.

      Also why in the world would Harry go to the Oscars. He and Meghan seem very focused on not being seen as “celebrities” a la Hollywood. I don’t see it happening. Also with all of the mess with Beyonce and other celebrities, you know they would call them out for being hypocrites for hanging out with people who are not for LGBT+ rights.

    • sammi says:

      The papers created a whole scenario of Meghan getting a GQ award in Tate Gallery which was completely false!

  3. Beverley says:

    Hearing Harry talk about Meghan’s beauty knocked my socks off. How deep their love must be!

    • Miranda says:

      Right? My husband (who has recently become something of an unexpected Squaddie) jokingly said that Harry needs to tone it down a bit because his gushing over Meghan is making all the other men on Earth look bad. 🤣

      Bu honestly, I think everything Harry said about Meghan is absolutely true, to the point that we can actually sense it even without seeing her in person. She’s just that vibrant and passionate and beautiful.

    • Abby says:

      The way he talks about her is just so gorgeous. I am so happy for their love.

    • Mabs A'Mabbin says:

      It’s ethereal.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        It is ethereal. It’s immensely romantic, loving and yet so infinite.

        Oh how wonderful to hear of Harry speak of Meghan in those words.

  4. Louise177 says:

    I really doubt that this true. They have other things going on in their lives. It seems too random for Meghan to think about winning a Grammy. They haven’t attended any award shows so I doubt Harry is presenting. Since moving to California they really haven’t been to any industry parties and ceremonies. Even though the British media keeps saying they’ve gone Hollywood.

    • Lorelei says:

      Even if she thinks it, there’s certainly no way she told anyone (who would talk to the press). It still amazes me that they can just print lies, day after day.

  5. Amy Bee says:

    According to the Telegraph Meghan was wary about the book but now she’s Gung ho about him winning a Grammy? Yeah this is some made up sh*t. We all know no one from Meghan’s team is talking to the DM. It’s likely Harry will be nominated for a Grammy next year and I hope he wins but what would be the reason for Harry and Meghan to go to this year’s Oscars? I don’t see them ever going unless they had a film that was nominated.

    • Becks1 says:

      That made me laugh. Because he is likely going to be nominated for a grammy next year, it means he’s going to present at the Oscars this year? Thats logical.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Amy Bee, I saw those same “sources” of how Meghan is “feeling”. They haven’t a clue. Maybe the Daily Fail and the like will win awards for the most ludicrous, liable and lying trash in print across the pond. They would certainly be in the top 3 of contenders. Though the Telegraph and The Sun are hot on their tails…..run DF, they are gaining on you!!!!

  6. Well Wisher says:

    This book will be eligible for nomination in 2024.

    That is the only factual sumise.

    Maybe, the fail inane blattering on about Meghan will make it ??????

  7. ShazBot says:

    But…he didn’t sing? I had seen all the “harry sings!” Commentary but when I got to those points in the audio, I would not say that he sang. He maybe did a little sing song voice a bit but mostly he just spoke them.

    He did a great job reading the book though.
    I love listening to memoirs on audiobook when the author does it themselves – I feel like it brings an emotional element that could only be there with someone telling their own story.

    • lunchcoma says:

      There’s a Grammy for spoken word recordings. That’s why Barack Obama has one!

      • ShazBot says:

        Oh I know! It was just a comment on all the mention of him singing in the audiobook. I 100% wouldn’t call what he did singing.
        Not related to Grammy eligibility

  8. Kim says:

    He’ll be nominated and likely to win. Does Meghan think that? Sure, why not. Is there a source? Not unless “common sense” is a source now.

  9. Abby says:

    LOL, no, Meghan did not say this to a “source.” This is made up.

    But it would be great if he’d win a grammy for it! I don’t think it would go against Viola since her book came out last year?

  10. Old_Crone says:

    How cool would that be?

  11. Julia K says:

    Meghan told us herself, no one speaks for me unless I authorize it such as through Archewell. Ignore this crap.

  12. Saucy&Sassy says:

    Well, now the bm are talking about something that may or may not happen next year. Poor babies they don’t have any leaks from the Sussexes who are staying silent and unseen right now. They have to find SOMETHING to write about. Give us a break.

  13. Sass says:

    I also prefer to read – I don’t usually enjoy audiobooks. But I’m glad I went this route. Memoirs read by the author hit different.

  14. Jais says:

    They have no real Meghan content and it’s driving them bonkers. No sources no photos no nothing. Love that for them.

  15. Athena says:

    Harry winning a Grammy has also been talked about in Sussex friendly YouTube channels, I think some RR are listening in on those channels. There’s also been talk of SPARE, the movie, SPARE as a mini-series, Cinderfella, a movie about Harry’s life, Harry doing voice overs. All speculations, just folks having fun with those ideas, let see which paper will pick those up and report as fact.

  16. PunkPrincessPhD says:

    So my littlest is a huge fan of Thomas the Tank Engine, and yesterday the algorithm threw out an old episode about some “Royal” train … It was narrated by Harry, with a cute intro segment. And as much as that blue train annoys the heck outta me, I had to stop what I was doing and listen, because the man has a compelling voice.

    If he can salvage a toddler’s show about trains, he can probably hold his own with Grammy nominees 😆

    • Lorelei says:

      I love it! My son watched that show constantly so I wonder if I ever watched that one and didn’t even realize it was Harry

  17. Liz Version 700 says:

    I would love for him to win a Grammy hahahaha. Just to watch KP try and force them to give one to Will. Now that would be Must See TV

  18. AnneL says:

    Oh, he’s a GREAT narrator/reader, no doubt. I prefer reading and got the print version, but I really enjoyed listening to that clip above.

    He should definitely get a nom next year. If he doesn’t…..well, I won’t eat my own hat, but I’d gladly force one of the Windsors to eat a giant feather-bedecked one.

  19. j.ferber says:

    My God, that clip on Meghan was heartbreakingly beautiful!!! Yes to the the spoken word Grammy.

  20. kelleybelle says:

    Wow …

  21. Noki says:

    Harry mentioned he like the she interacted with Violet.. Who is that?

  22. LaurenAPMT says:

    So that was an incredibly beautiful passage. But he speaks more slowly than I prefer, so I’ll stick with my copy of the book.

  23. Jay says:

    For sure Spare will be in the Grammy conversation. I know people who bought the book and then the audiobook, just to hear how Harry tells his own story!

    Speaking of awards, I also wouldn’t be surprised if the Live to Lead and/or the upcoming Invictus series end up getting Emmy nods. At some point it’s going to start to get embarrassing for the BAFTAs to keep nominating their dear leader William for his various environmental vanity projects and pointedly not nominating the other, more successful brother.
