In recent events, the relationship between King Charles and his son, Prince Harry, along with Meghan Markle, has taken a dramatic shift. This development follows a period of apparent progress towards mending their strained ties.
Early November had seen a thaw in the frosty relations, marked by Prince Harry reaching out to King Charles to celebrate the monarch's 75th birthday. Rumors had even surfaced about the possibility of the Suss*xes joining the royal family for Christmas at Sandringham, should an invitation be extended.
However, the publication of royal author Omid Scobie's book "Endgame" seems to have reversed these budding reconciliations. According to Richard Eden, the Daily Mail's diary editor, the book's revelations have prompted a reevaluation of the situation within the royal family.
Eden suggests that the Suss*xes' efforts to reconnect with King Charles, including their birthday wishes and hints at a desire to spend Christmas together, may now be futile. He asserts that any potential invitation to Sandringham might be retracted in light of the recent developments.
Royal Family Controversy Escalates
King Charles, advised by his son Prince William, is reportedly considering a solid response to the situation. This comes after his return to the UK for an emergency meeting following his address at COP28 in Dubai.
The meeting is set to address the allegations made in Omid Scobie's book, particularly the controversial claim regarding 'racist royals.' This claim refers to Meghan Markle's explosive interview with Oprah in 2021, where she alleged concerns and discussions within the royal family about the skin color of her son, Archie.
Adding to the controversy, the Dutch version of Omid Scobie's book allegedly reveals King Charles and Kate Middleton as the individuals implicated in these discussions. As reported by Express UK, Palace sources indicate that the royal family is keeping all options open, including the possibility of legal action against Scobie.
