- Since it came out, 400,000 copies of the book have been sold in hardback, e-book and audio formats, per Reuters.
- "As far as we know, the only books to have sold more in their first day are those starring the other Harry [Potter]," Finlay said.
- Excerpts of the book were mistakenly released early and contained details on private conversations among the Royal Family, AP reports.
