Omid Scobie, the author behind the 2020 biography “Finding Freedom” about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, is expected to release a second book about the royal family. The blurb for “Endgame: Insight into the royal family and the monarchy’s fight for survival” describes the book as “explosive” and “a penetrating examination of the current state of the British monarchy”.
The email on Sunday published a report claiming A “publishing source in America” said: “They say there will be one bomb after another.” The book will also be published in a currently unnamed American magazine.
The full description reads: “’Endgame,’ the explosive book from veteran royal journalist Omid Scobie and author of the international blockbuster ‘Finding Freedom,’ is a searing examination of the current state of the British monarchy – an unpopular king, a power-hungry one 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.”
“The death of Queen Elizabeth II has brought down the already shattered foundations of the House of Windsor – and destroyed the protective shield that surrounds it. With an institution long plagued by antiquated ideas around race, class and money, the monarchy and those who prop it up are now exposed and at odds with a rapidly modernizing world.”
“Drawing on his extensive experience as a royal reporter and over a decade of conversations and interviews with current and former palace staff, trusted friends of the royal family and even the family members themselves, Scobie pulls back the curtain on an institution in turmoil to show what.” The monarchy must change in order to survive. This is the endgame of the monarchy. Do they have what it takes to save it?” The description ends.
The question is compelling. In June, Scobie explained that he spent a year working on “Endgame” because he “felt a need for thorough, nonsensical and well-rounded insights and reports” about a family whose relevance to its subjects has been continually questioned.
The author also promised that the book will explore what the royal family should be proud of and what they should be ashamed of. As Scobie put it: “Just like the politicians of this country, the royals are not, nor should they be, above reproach – no.”
No matter how desperate certain press spokesmen are to convince you of this.”
The Mail on Sunday also claimed the outlet had spoken to an unnamed source who said the palace may be concerned about the content of Endgame. They wrote: “I was told this was bad, very bad. It is unlikely that royal advisers will comment on this, but if there are allegations of racism they will of course be vigorously denied.”
In their 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told the legendary former daytime television host that a family member wondered aloud what color their baby would be after they shared the news of their first pregnancy.
Scobie’s book is already well received. As he shared on TwitterTime lists the book as one of its “Best New Books to Read in November.”
“Endgame” will be released on November 28th.
