Obie Scobie has released a new book on the Royal Family today called Endgame which has not sat well with fans of the monarchy.

Endgame – by the Sussexes’ journalist supporter-in-chief, Omid Scobie, the co-author of Finding Freedom, on their escape from “the firm” – examines a royal family “in crisis”.

It has been described as one-sided by royalists, with one media outlet calling it "ludicrous propaganda for Team Sussex".

Scobie, 42, has stressed in pre-publication interviews that he has not interviewed Harry and Meghan for the book, nor is he Meghan’s friend. But he told the Times: “I have mutual friends with [Meghan], and that definitely helps with getting information and breaking details.”

The Telegraph's Anita Singh wrote a scathing 2/5 star review in which she said: "The reporter’s much-trailed study of the Royal family is laughably partial, devoid of insight and bizarrely misogynistic."

She also claimed that "Omid Scobie's Endgame is ludicrous propaganda for Team Sussex".

Emily Ferguson, Digital Royal Editor at the Daily Express, was equally disparaging. She said: "Prince Harry will never reconcile with Prince William now his mouthpiece has shared fresh attacks.

"It's a highly one-sided match"

"Omid Scobie's Endgame may well have signalled the death knell on Prince Harry and Prince William's relationship."

TalkTV's Julia Hartley-Brewer said today: “Everyone gets a right royal pasting. Everyone’s horrible, everyone’s conniving, everyone's in a power struggle … apart from, you’ll never guess who, Harry and Meghan!”

Meanwhile, BBC's Royal correspondent Sean Coughlan said: "Endgame is a much less red-blooded piece of writing. It's more eggshell than bombshell. The title references a chess game, but it's a highly one-sided match, all attack and not much defence.

"In Scobie's book, Prince William is painted as emotionally volatile and manipulative, freezing out his brother."
