A publicist has claimed that author Omid Scobie may have chosen to focus solely on the Royal Family in his new book, Endgame, because he doesn’t “want to break ties” with Meghan Markle.
The 42-year-old author released his new book this week, which includes claims about the family and people connected to them, making headlines.
But PR expert Laura Perkes has claimed Scobie is trying to keep on the good side of the Duchess of Sussex.
She told the Daily Mirror: “It may be that [Omid] doesn’t want to break ties with Meghan completely, choosing to focus solely on one side of the family; the side that is constantly talked about in the media, rather than bringing Doria into the picture.”

“Endgame has only been possible because of Scobie’s close relationship with Meghan, which he’s recently tried to deny as ‘close’. If he burns bridges with her then his five minutes of fame will be over,” she further commented recently.
Scobie’s new book, which was published on Tuesday, asserts that the future of the monarchy is “in a crisis” and it is in a “fight for survival”.
The King’s relationship with his son, the Prince of Wales, is examined with a “source” making a scathing comment about the heir to the throne’s opinion of his father.
The source said: “William (doesn’t) think his father is competent enough, quite frankly. Though they share passions and interests, their style of leadership is completely different.”
In the book a “source” claims that Kate can be “cold if she doesn’t like someone” and the writer goes on to say: “This is a side of Kate that rarely gets written about.
“Advocating for mental health causes – the mental health of mothers, for that matter – but ignoring her own sister-in-law’s cries for help seemed out of character for someone the public knew as sweet and easy to get along with.”
In an interview with The Times, Mr Scobie said: “That crisis being a lack of interest from young people, an apathy, a growing republican movement, questions over whether the family still uphold the morals and values of the Crown that the Queen did such a great job of.”
Among the claims made in the book are that there is a rift between the King and the Prince of Wales, that the Queen has “quietly thanked” Piers Morgan for “defending the Firm”, and that a timid Princess of Wales has to be encouraged to take part in engagements.

Mr Scobie’s book makes a series of allegations involving the Sussexes – including that William and other family members “covertly sanctioned” leaks to reporters about Harry, that the elder brother ignored texts from Harry when the family were making their way to Balmoral before the late Queen died last year, and that Charles and Meghan exchanged letters in the wake of her interview with Oprah Winfrey.
The alleged letters are said to reveal the identity of two people the duchess claimed, in the TV interview, aired “concerns” about the colour of then-unborn Prince Archie’s skin.
Mr Scobie co-authored Finding Freedom, a biography of the Sussexes which chronicled the couple in glowing terms, and they receive favourable treatment in his new book.
