Omid Scobie, known for his association with Prince Harry and the Duchess of Sussex, has created a buzz with his upcoming book, “Endgame,” in which he launches a scathing attack on the Royal Family.
The Cover Reveal:
Scobie unveiled the cover of his new book, “Endgame,” this week. The book is described on Amazon as “a penetrating investigation into the current state of the British monarchy,” and it provides a glimpse into the inner workings of the monarchy.
The book’s promotional material labels Prince William as “power-hungry” and King Charles as “unpopular,” setting the stage for a potentially explosive narrative.
The Impact on Buckingham Palace:
Sources suggest that the Royal Family is unlikely to respond publicly to Scobie’s claims, but if there are accusations of racism, they may feel compelled to issue a robust rebuttal.
A Familiar Voice:
Scobie has been closely associated with Prince Harry and Meghan, acting as their unofficial mouthpiece. His 2020 bestseller, “Finding Freedom,” detailed the couple’s journey and their struggles with the Royal Family.
Endgame’s Release Date:
“Endgame” is set to be published on November 28, and its potential revelations are likely to raise further concerns within Buckingham Palace. Whether the Sussexes were involved in this book’s creation remains unknown.
Exploring the Queen’s Death:
The book is subtitled “Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival,” offering an “explosive” look at the events surrounding Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.
Scobie claims to have interviewed various sources, including current and former Palace staff, friends of the Royals, and family members.
The Serialisation in the US:
The book will be serialised in a major US magazine but will not have a similar serialisation in the UK. It is anticipated that the book will contain significant revelations that will capture the attention of readers on both sides of the Atlantic.
“Endgame” features chapters that provide insights into various aspects of the Royal Family, including the Queen’s death, Prince Andrew’s scandals, issues related to race, and the contrasting approaches of Prince William and Prince Harry.
The Publisher’s Promise:
HarperCollins, the book’s publisher, has previously stated that “Endgame” will “have the world talking,” and Scobie has warned that it will reveal moments that the Royals should be “ashamed of.”
Omid Scobie’s Recent Criticism:
In addition to his book, Scobie has been critical of the King and Queen for walking on a red carpet during a State Visit in Kenya.
His social media comments have drawn both support and criticism, and he continues to be a prominent voice for the Sussexes.
No Official Responses:
As of the time of this report, Buckingham Palace and Kensington Palace have not issued public responses to the content of “Endgame” or Scobie’s comments.
Omid Scobie’s “Endgame” promises to be a riveting exploration of the Royal Family, offering a unique perspective that will undoubtedly spark discussion and debate among readers.
