If you thought you knew everything about the British Royal Family, think again. A new book by royal family correspondent Omid Scobie, Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival, exposes more shocking details about the inner workings of the royal family, especially the rifts and rivalries among its members.
One of the most juicy revelations in the book is the alleged animosity between Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle, who have been at odds since the beginning of their relationship. According to a source who used to work for Kate, the Princess of Wales never liked Meghan and felt threatened by her presence. The source also claimed that Kate was jealous of Meghan’s popularity and influence, and tried to undermine her at every opportunity.
No end to Royal Family Drama
The book also claims that Kate has cut off all ties with Meghan and Prince Harry, who moved to California in 2020 after stepping back from their senior royal roles. Kate does not trust the couple after they gave several explosive interviews to the media, accusing the royal family of racism, neglect, and bullying. One of the most shocking allegations was that a senior royal had expressed concern about how dark their son Archie’s skin would be before he was born. Harry refused to name the person, but said he was “a bit shocked” by the conversation.
The book reveals that Harry’s father, King Charles III, tried to reach out to Meghan after the interview and explain that the remark was not meant to be malicious or prejudiced. However, Meghan did not accept his apology and instead lectured him on how the comment was a sign of “lingering unconscious bias and ignorance” that needed to be addressed. The book suggests that this exchange further strained the relationship between Harry and his father, who have been distant since Harry’s departure from the UK.
Tension between William and Charles
But the drama does not end there. The book also explores the tension and competition between Charles and his eldest son, Prince William, who are both vying for the throne. The book describes the king’s Buckingham Palace and the Prince of Wales’ Kensington Palace as “hives of competing agendas”, where each side tries to outdo the other and gain more public support. The book alleges that William is already planning to modernize the monarchy when he becomes king, and does not want to be associated with any of his father’s or grandfather’s mistakes. The book also claims that William was the one who decided to strip his uncle, Prince Andrew, of his royal family titles and patronages after his involvement in the Jeffrey Epstein scandal, but the palace tried to make it look like a joint decision with his father.
The book is full of more juicy details and insider information that will surely make you rethink everything you thought you knew about the royal family. It is a must-read for anyone who is fascinated by the lives and secrets of the royals.
