Prince Harry and Meghan Markle now face the prospect of a "bitter pill" to swallow following the release of a bombshell new book.
Omid Scobie's Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival hit shelves on Tuesday (November 28), bringing with it a flurry of controversial new claims. Some of these included that Prince William and King Charles have an unspoken rift; that Queen Camilla has a raunchy past; and that the Queen hired an ex-MI5 boss to be her "eyes and ears" due to a lack of trust in Charles.
"Perhaps the end of the monarchy as we know it is at stake," Scobie told the Evening Standard ahead of the book's release. But former butler and Princess Diana's pal Paul Burrell has claimed the end is not in sight for the Firm and said the royals still have the upper hand.

"This isn’t the end game, absolutely not. A thousand years of history down the pan? I don't think so," he told GB News.
Burrell stressed future queen Kate Middleton – who found herself on the receiving end of some of Scobie's barbed claims – also has "something Meghan doesn't" which will help the royals weather any Sussex-shaped storm. "Kate hasn't put a foot wrong and Kate has something which Meghan doesn't have: Class," he continued.

"They [Kate and Prince William] are going to be sat on the throne one day, Harry and Meghan aren't and that must be a very bitter pill to swallow, knowing that Kate will have everything at her disposal and she has a wonderful family and a loving husband beside her, and that must rankle."
Before Endgame was published Scobie hit out at Kate, claiming she was held to lower standards than other royals and is "terrified to do anything more than grinning photo ops."

"In the coverage of Kate, we infantilise her massively, so the bar is always lower," Scobie told the Sunday Times. "The small achievements that we’ve seen from the Princess of Wales wouldn’t, perhaps, be noticed if they were from another member of the family. But with Kate it's like, 'Wow!'"
A pal of the Princess of Wales branded the description "unjust."
