In a startling revelation, a close associate of Prince Harry has disclosed that King Charles III continues to resist reconciling with his estranged son, prompting growing discontent within the royal family. The insider information comes from Omid Scobie’s latest book, “Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival,” obtained in advance by Page Six.
Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s departure from the royal family in 2020, attempts have allegedly been made to mend fences. However, Charles remains unmoved, causing frustration among family members eager for a resolution.
According to a royal source cited by Omid Scobie, “It’s complex, but there’s increasing frustration from some of the wider circle of family members that Charles won’t just fix things for the sake of everyone.”
Furthermore, a friend of the Duke of Sussex revealed that Charles rebuffed Harry’s Christmas wishes in 2022, creating an awkward and unproductive exchange. The source disclosed, “It was an awkward conversation, but he knew if he didn’t make those first steps, there would never be any progress. There were no raised voices, no arguments … but the King was cold and brief rather than open to any proper dialogue.”
The book goes on to unveil a poignant moment where Harry allegedly posed a heart-wrenching question to Charles after being asked to vacate Frogmore Cottage. Reportedly, Harry inquired, “Don’t you want to see your grandchildren anymore?” He earnestly pleaded with the king to allow him to retain the keys to Frogmore Cottage.
The narrative takes a compelling turn as the book recounts the events of 2023 when Charles directed Harry and Meghan to leave their Windsor residence. Describing the moment, Omid Scobie portrays a “shocked” Harry and Meghan being instructed to return the keys to their Windsor home. He characterizes the move as “a cheap shot from a wounded father bounded by an institutional system that is often intolerant of human emotion,” emphasizing that the house was the family’s “only true safe option when visiting the United Kingdom,” given the presence of armed guards monitoring the grounds.
This latest revelation adds fuel to the ongoing saga, shedding light on the persistent tensions within the royal family, as documented in Omid Scobie’s gripping expose.
