On Monday, Daily Express shed light on the release of Omid Scobie's book and how much it could impact on the tensions between Prince Harry & Meghan Markle and Buckingham Palace.

According to the Daily Express, Scobie’s book has come in a bad timing for the couple as they were on the way to improve their ties with the Royal Palace. Various reports highlighted that the couple were about to be invited to Sandringham this Christmas, as tensions somehow we're calmed since King Charles’s 75th birthday celebrations.

However, Scobie’s tell-all book, Endgame, would contribute in driving the ties between the Sussexes and the Royal Family to "an all-new low."

The book carried huge bombshell allegations. The book claimed that that Prince William tried to upstage his father, in addition, it referred to Princess Kate as a “part-time working royal.”

Scobie also said that King Charles described Prince Harry as “that fool” after the release of his Netflix documentary.

Royal experts said that the book would damage the relationships between the Sussexes and Buckingham Palace, and its timing is shocking for Harry who is trying to re-establish warm ties with The Firm.

Royal expert Duncan Larcombe expressed the book has ruined the chance of a reconciliation.

He said: “It has put them right back to square one,” he told OK! “There’s now pressure being put on Harry to come out and distance himself from the book, and I think that will be very tempting for him to do because it seems he has been trying to soften his tone towards the royals.

“There were some green shoots that he might be trying to end the feud from his side. So the timing of the book couldn’t be worse for Harry. I think it’s his worst nightmare.”

On the other hand, Scobie asserted that the Sussexes didn't contribute in the book, however, Larcombe believes that  suspicion will be directed to Meghan. Especially after the incident of 2020 where the Duchess denied her contribution with Scobie’s 2020 book. But, she later apologized after forgetting that she permitted an her assistants to provide information to the journalist and the book's co-author Carolyn Durand.
