Sources close to Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, have strongly refuted claims of her involvement in the disclosure of names of alleged ‘racist royals’ in Omid Scobie’s book, “Endgame.” This denial comes in response to recent developments surrounding the book’s content and its implications for the Royal Family.
The controversy centers around an assertion made in Scobie’s book, scheduled for release on November 28, that Meghan Markle had written a private letter to King Charles. In this letter, she reportedly named members of the Royal Family who had raised questions about the skin color of her and Prince Harry’s son, Archie, before his birth. This sensitive matter gained significant attention following an interview with Oprah Winfrey, where the issue of race within the Royal Family was discussed.
The situation intensified when a Dutch version of Scobie’s book allegedly included the names of the royals in question, leading to widespread speculation and controversy. A senior Palace source, as reported by The Sun, suggested that Meghan Markle might have leaked these names as a form of retribution against the Royal Family.
Journalist Piers Morgan further fueled the debate by stating that the names mentioned in the Dutch edition of the book matched those allegedly involved in the Meghan/Charles letter exchange, as detailed in Scobie’s book. Morgan posited that this information could only have originated from Meghan Markle or her close circle.
In response to these accusations, a source close to the Duchess countered these claims. As reported by Rebecca English, Royal Editor of the Daily Mail, citing The Daily Telegraph, the source emphasized that Meghan Markle had never intended for the names to become public. They insisted that the letter containing these names was not leaked to Omid Scobie by anyone associated with Meghan Markle.
This denial from Meghan Markle’s camp adds a new layer to the ongoing narrative, challenging the allegations of her direct involvement in the leak. The situation reflects the complex and often fraught relationship between the Royal Family and the media, underscored by sensitive issues of privacy, race, and interpersonal dynamics within the monarchy. As the release of Scobie’s book approaches, these developments are likely to continue sparking debate and discussion about the Royal Family and their interactions with Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.
