Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has been making headlines for weeks following the release of his contentious memoir, Spare.

The couple divided fans over their bombshell claims – including, it seems, Carla Bruni.

Carla's decision to share the image came as a surprise to fans - and it seems she had second thoughts. She later deleted the image and instead shared a snapshot of the cover of Spare.

Carla wrote: "I loved Prince Harry of Sussex's book, I read it in one go and with great emotion and interest. It is rare for someone imprisoned in such a position to be so sincere, so clear, so true.

"It is rare for someone whose existence is so radically predestined to fight for a life, his own life, like any of us, like you and me. It's brave, it's daring, it's new: but Prince Harry is indeed his mother's son.


Carla praised Harry for his memoir

"Prince Harry's heart, which we feel beating on every page, tells us something that concerns us all and whoever we are: We only have one life and we have to live it as much as possible according to our instinct, according to our happiness.

"Life is too short and too pointless to believe that happiness doesn't matter. No life should deprive itself of the little happiness that awaits it, that is in truth what this book, so singular and so interesting, teaches us."
