Charles and William’s relationship ‘attacked’ to ‘justify’ Sussex rift – expert

A bombshell royal book which claims King Charles and Prince William have an unspoken rift has "attacked" the pair to "justify" the fallout withPrince Harry and Meghan Markle, says a royal expert.

Omid Scobie's Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival hit shelves around the world on Tuesday (November 28). The controversial new release saw Scobie claim Prince William and King Charles have tension due to their different approaches to running the monarchy, the Daily Star previously reported.

"Distrust and simmering animosity between father and son are nothing new to their working relationship," Scobie wrote. "A source close to William said, 'Though [Charles and William] share a number of passions and interests, their style of leadership is quite different.'"

Another insider told Scobie that Charles is governed by his "head and his heart," while William is "colder" than his dad. "He just wants to get the job done and has no problem taking prisoners along the way," they said.

Scobie also added the Prince of Wales "represents the monarchy's true next stage" while Charles is generally considered the "bridge to get there." The controversial author said the Prince of Wales his eyes set firmly on the crown, despite his dad having been on the throne for little more than a year.

But royal expert Gertrude Daly isn't buying it. "The claims of a rift between Prince William & King Charles seem [far] from the truth," she told the Daily Star.

"If anything, they have become closer in the last few years as they work together to deal with the Sussexes and the various issues they have stirred up. The attack on Prince William and King Charles's relationship is no doubt to help justify Prince Harry's fall out with them.

"[It is] as if to say, if King Charles had a poor relationship with both of his sons it must be Charles's fault."

The book instantly attracted controversy after a translation appeared to name two alleged "racist royals" accused of making comments about the colour of Harry and Meghan's son Archie's skin. The Dutch version of the book contained a paragraph not included in the original English text that identified members of the Firm allegedly involved in the scandal, the Daily Star previously reported.

Scobie denied any involvement in the publication of the names, stating he "unfortunately does not speak Dutch." The book's publisher in the Netherlands, Xander, also "temporarily" pulled copies from shelves.

The accusations come in the wake of an explosive 2021 interview Harry and Meghan gave with Oprah Winfrey. The tell-all – their first after quitting the royal family the year before – saw them claim members of the Firm had expressed concern over the colour of then-unborn Archie's skin.

"In those months when I was pregnant, all around this same time… so we have in tandem the conversation of 'He won’t be given security, he’s not going to be given a title,' and also concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he’s born," Meghan said.

Following the interview, the Queen issued a statement saying the issues Harry and Meghan raised, "particularly that of race," were "concerning." Prince William later said the Royal Family is "very much not racist."
