Meghan thinks Prince Harry is a Grammy ‘shoo-in’ for Spare’s audiobook

Meghan Markle is sure her husband Prince Harry will add the Grammy winner to his list of accolades thanks to his latest memoir.

An entertainment industry insider told DailyMail.com the Duchess and her team think Harry is a ‘shoo-in’ to win the Grammy for Best Spoken Word (Best Audiobook, Storytelling and Storytelling Recording) for the audiobook of his Spare memoir at the ceremony next year.

“He’s a natural storyteller, he has a soothing voice and even sings on the audio version,” the source said.

At one point in the audiobook, Harry sings a verse from 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 the Elton John 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 ago,’ the source adds.

“He’s a natural storyteller, has a soothing voice and even sings on the audio version,” the source said, referring to Harry singing Elton John’s Your Song on the audiobook of his memoir.

The 2007 benefit titled Concert for Diana included a performance by Elton John.

Prince Harry reveals in the memoir that Elton John turned down a request to perform Candle in the Wind for the benefit because the song was too morbid.

Elton had rewritten some of the lyrics to Candle in the Wind – also called Goodbye England’s Rose – for Diana’s funeral, but chose to sing Your Song instead.

Harry then continues to sing a few verses.

“I hope you don’t mind. I hope you don’t mind that I express in these words how wonderful life is when you’re out in the world,” he sings.

The source says, “Hollywood loves it.” He has a knack for talkativeness and a fun sense of humor. He’s got the star power.

This year’s Grammy Awards take place 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 was even talk of Harry appearing at the next Oscars as a possible presenter [in March]’, adds the insider.

A gushing message praising the Duke of Sussex for his “courage, honesty and humour” following the release of his explosive memoir has been shared on the Duke and Duchess Archewell’s official website.

“A big shout out to Prince Harry on the publication of his memoir, Spare. As a team, we are proud to stand with you and celebrate you as the world finally hears your story in your words.

‘Thank you for your courage, your honesty, your humor and your light. You have inspired us all.

It was signed: “With admiration, your staff and team at Archewell and the private office of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.”

While it’s clear Meghan thinks highly of her husband, she notably took a step back from her lengthy media tour and left Harry in the spotlight.

The prince has taken part in a number of high-profile media engagements since the book’s January 10 launch, including an interview with Anderson Cooper for CBS’ 60 Minutes.

He also appeared alone on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The Duke of Sussex's autobiography has sold 750,000 copies across all formats - print, audio and e-book - in the UK since its publication on January 10.

The Duchess was last seen publicly with Prince Harry in December 2022, when the royal couple traveled to New York to accept an award for their ‘heroic’ stand against “structural racism” in the royal family.

Sources said The Telegraph If Meghan had been involved in any aspect of promoting the book, she could well have been accused of trying to steal the show.

Others have suggested that Meghan’s absence sends a message that this is Harry’s plan.

A source close to the couple said Meghan was “more wary” about extremely personal memoirs than the prince, adding that she may have raised “gentle concerns”.

But once Harry decided to go ahead with the two-year project with ghostwriter JR Moehringer, the Duchess remained supportive.

“Is that how she would have approached it?” Maybe not,” a source said.

“But she will always support him and would never have involved herself in promoting such a personal project. It’s about his own life, his own journey and his own perspective.
