Omid Scobie, a royal biographer and someone often regarded as an ally to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, has released a new book filled with undisclosed stories that paint a bleak picture of the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry. In his latest book, “Endgame,” Scobie suggests that the rift between the two royal brothers might be irreparable, a notion that comes as a shock to those who held onto hopes of reconciliation.
Scobie’s revelations in “Endgame” seem to dash any lingering hopes that the once-close siblings might mend their fractured relationship. In a striking excerpt from the book, as reported by a media outlet and shared with PEOPLE, Scobie claims that Prince William has no desire to reconnect with Harry. He portrays William as someone who believes Harry has been negatively influenced by an extensive team of therapists, to the point of being “brainwashed.”
Delving deeper into the royal dynamics, Scobie references a source who referred to Harry as a “defector,” implying that this is also how William perceives his younger brother. This description underscores the depth of the perceived betrayal and division between them.
Scobie further explores the evolution of the brothers’ relationship in his book. He notes that there was a time when William and Harry shared similar perspectives and were united in their views and duties. However, as circumstances changed, with one brother needing to move on to safeguard the crown, their paths diverged significantly.
According to Scobie, the brothers are now firmly entrenched on opposite sides of a divide that seems too vast to bridge. He emphasizes that their differences in viewpoints and life choices have set them on irreconcilable paths, marking a significant departure from their once-close bond.
These revelations from Scobie’s “Endgame” add another layer to the ongoing narrative about the royal family’s internal struggles, particularly focusing on the strained relationship between Prince William and Harry. The book’s insights suggest that any hopes for a future reconciliation may be overly optimistic, given the current state of affairs as depicted by Scobie.
