Royal author Omid Scobie has claimed that the Royal Family were advised not to trust Prince Harry after the release of his tell-all book Spare and after a "frosty" conversation between the father and son took place.
Omid's "explosive" new book Endgame was released on 28 November. In it, he shares that a source revealed King Charles wanted to keep their conversation light at the time of the call. The family was allegedly also warned not to trust Harry and to ignore the claims in his book.
Harry and Meghan have reportedly distanced themselves from Endgame. Omid, who has been labelled as Meghan's mouthpiece and "cheerleader-in-chief", took to Twitter to deny being friends with the Duchess.
He tweeted: "And let's get this nonsense out the way – #ENDGAME is about the current state of the British Royal Family. It's not 'Harry and Meghan's book', I'm not 'Meg's pal', the Sussexes have nothing to do with it, their story is a small part of a much bigger one you can read in 12 days."
The book is described as "a penetrating investigation into the current state of the British monarchy". The book's description states: "An unpopular king, a power-hungry heir to the throne, a queen willing to go to dangerous lengths to preserve her image, and a prince forced to start a new life after being betrayed by his own family."
Sussex insiders have reportedly told the MailOnline that Harry and Meghan had nothing to do with Scobie's new book despite their involvement in his first book. They also denied that he is a part of the "Sussex Camp".
Omid is known for having been the Royal editor at Harper's Bazaar and a contributor for ABC News. He has also appeared on the likes of Good Morning America in the US and ITV's This Morning in the UK.
In 2020, he co-authored the bombshell book, Finding Freedom, alongside Carolyn Durand. The book focused on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and their bold decision to leave the Royal Family three years ago, with them then moving across the pond to the US.
When Omid's first book Finding Freedom came out, he was forced to deny claims of having interviewed the pair ahead of writing the book.
But buried in an author's note at the back of the pages, an admission reportedly states: "We have spoken to close friends of Harry and Meghan, royal aides and palace staff (past and present), the charities and organisations they have built long-lasting relationships with and, when appropriate, the couple themselves."
PR expert, Lynn Carratt from PressBox PR shared her thoughts on how Omid's new book might impact the Royal Family with The Mirror. "The Royal Family have weathered bigger storms than the revelations made in Omid Scobie's latest book," she said.
"I feel it will be water off a duck's back to them. It is unlikely that royal aides will comment, but if there are accusations of racism, they will be 'vehemently denied.' It will be business as usual for the Royals – their infamous motto is 'Never complain, never explain'," she added.
