Omid Scobie's Endgame has 'absolutely nothing in it' as royal writer regurgitates old news

NewsOmid Scobie's Endgame has 'absolutely nothing in it' as royal writer regurgitates old news

Royal writer Omid Scobie has released multiple extracts ahead of the publication of his new book Endgame which is due out on November 28 but it is claimed there’s “absolutely nothing to it”.

The “unofficial mouthpiece” to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry has revealed insight into the Sussexes relationship with the Royal Family as well as Queen Elizabeth II’s death.

But royal commentator Michael Cole has lashed out at the book.

He told GB News: “I think everybody who has said anything about it has said why do you have to go over the details over the way the Queen met her death?

“Other critics have said that it’s really a compilation of published material, there’s absolutely nothing to it.

“It does seem to be seen through a Sussex focus, it says favourable things about them and less favourable things about other members of the Royal Family.”

The writer claims heir to the throne William is prioritising his loyalty to the Crown and quietly co-operating with the UK press to undermine Harry, People magazine reported.

In excerpts, Scobie also writes that Harry was “crushed” at having to learn the news of the late Queen’s death from a BBC news report.

Scobie claims palace sources later briefed that the King shared the news with Harry personally in a bid to save face.

He wrote how Harry was described by a source close to the Sussexes as being “completely by himself” as he tried to make plans to fly to Balmoral on the day of the Queen’s death, and said he “remained in the dark” about his grandmother’s health in her final moments.

Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace and Archewell all declined to comment.

Scobie is also the co-author of Finding Freedom, a biography of the Sussexes, which claimed the duke was angered by what he perceived as William’s “snobbish” attitude to his bride.

Meghan’s lawyers previously denied she collaborated with the book.

But in November 2021, the duchess apologised to the High Court for not remembering that she agreed an aide could provide information to Scobie and fellow writer Carolyn Durand for the biography.
