Many believed that the royals would not be able to forgive him for his latest project.

However, Alex Call, the owner of the store, later explained that the placement was not done on purpose. Mackie's work was the best-selling novel in 2022 and was already on the shelves, Huffington Post reported.

The unplanned book arrangement was brought to their attention, and they decided to let it be because many found it hilarious.

"Then when we saw it there, we thought it would be quite funny to put it next to 'Spare' and would be quite light-hearted and make a few people smile," Call told Huffington Post.
