Harry and Meghan’s cheerleader Omid Scobie announces new book ‘Endgame’ about the Royal Family’s ‘fight for survival’ will be released on November 21
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s cheerleader Omid Scobie today announced he will release a new book on the monarchy on November 21.
The author’s previous title, Finding Freedom, covered the Duke and Duchess of Sussexes’ decision to step down as senior royals.
Revealing the publication date today, Scobie said his new book would be a ‘penetrating investigation’ into the future of the Royal Family.
He tweeted: ‘Endgame, a penetrating investigation into the future of the Royal Family, will be released globally on November 21, 2023.
‘Can’t wait for you all to read this.’

Announcing the book last year, he said Endgame would ‘pull back the curtain on an institution in turmoil—exposing the chaos, family dysfunction, distrust and draconian practices threatening its very future’.
According to a statement released by the publisher: ‘On September 8, 2022, the world stood still as news broke of Queen Elizabeth II’s passing.
‘Her death dismantled the protective shield around the world’s most famous family, and saw a long-simmering crisis of confidence in the British monarchy begin to resurface.
‘Now, with unique insight, deep access and exclusive revelations, journalist Omid Scobie pulls back the curtain on an institution in turmoil—exposing the chaos, family dysfunction, distrust and draconian practices threatening its very future.
‘This is the monarchy’s endgame. Do they have what it takes to save it?’
Mr Scobie, who is the royal editor of US website Harper’s Bazaar, has been a firm cheerleader for Harry and Meghan over recent years, having co-authored a highly sympathetic biography of the couple in 2020.
He is one of the closest journalists to Harry and Meghan since their move to America.
