Prince Harry’s “Spare” memoir is the fastest-selling non-fiction work in UK history, the book’s publisher said on Tuesday. As of this afternoon, 400,000 copies have been sold in hardcover, e-book and audio book formats.

“We always knew this book would fly by, but it’s surpassing even our most optimistic expectations,” said Larry Finlay, managing director of Transworld Penguin Random House, in a statement.

“As far as we know, the only books that sold more on the first day are those by the other Harry (Potter),” said Finlay, referring to the books in the star children’s saga by author JK Rowling.

The publisher said the data is based on historical book sales in the UK.

Harry’s book, whose Spanish edition mistakenly went on sale earlier than planned, was officially made available today, with eager readers flocking to bookstores to get their copy of the book containing intimate revelations about Britain’s royal family.

The work drew attention around the world due to the revelations about Harry’s emotions about his father, King Charles, stepmother Camilla and older brother, Prince William, first in line to the British throne.
