In a recent development in the ongoing saga involving Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, a royal commentator shared exclusive insights with GB News about the couple's current silence over the contentious naming revelations in Omid Scobie's latest book, "Endgame".
This controversy has captured global attention, particularly following the book's Dutch translation, which allegedly names members of the Royal Family as expressing concerns over the skin color of the Sussexes' son, Archie.
Despite the storm of media attention, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have remained notably quiet on the issue. Sources close to them have denied their involvement in the leak of these names to Scobie. However, the couple has yet to issue an official statement addressing the burgeoning controversy.
Scobie himself has distanced himself from the responsibility of the names of King Charles and Princess Kate appearing in the Dutch version of his book. The author's denial adds another layer of intrigue to the unfolding drama.
Meanwhile, a Dutch translator for the book informed The Mail that the royal names were explicitly mentioned in the manuscript she received. The couple's silence is a departure from their previous approach to addressing royal family disputes, as noted by royal author Richard Fitzwilliams in his conversation with GB News.
He speculated that this silence might not be a permanent strategy. "Montecito is staying silent at the moment, but this isn't likely necessarily to last forever," Fitzwilliams stated, referencing the Sussexes' current residence.
Anticipating Royal Response
Fitzwilliams further pointed out Prince Harry's history of taking legal action when deemed necessary, highlighting a potential shift in the couple's approach in the future. The Palace's response, or lack thereof, could also influence their decision.
Meanwhile, Buckingham Palace has maintained its silence on the allegations and claims presented in Scobie's "Endgame". As the story continues to unfold, the world watches with bated breath, wondering if and when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will break their silence on this sensitive matter, which, as Fitzwilliams noted, could prove to be highly embarrassing for the Royal Family and shocking to the public, given the gravity of the accusations and the previous understanding that these issues had been resolved post the Sussexes' interview with Oprah Winfrey in 2021.
