The British artist Jake Chapman is making mischief on Instagram with a series of posts lambasting Prince Harry and his recent autobiography Spare, about his life in the UK royal family.

The macabre series of images give a new, rather punchy take on the front cover of the headline-hitting memoir, showing Harry’s face transformed, for instance, under layers of paint, with his eyes gouged out or a hugely elongated nose.

The garish reinterpretations of the heavily marketed book’s cover have drawn mixed responses, with one commentator noting that Chapman’s Harry horror pictures are the “gift that keeps on giving”.
