An air of scandal clouds the royal family once again as Piers Morgan revealed the names of the two royal racists mentioned in Omid Scobie’s book, Endgame. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stirred the subject of royal racism when they revealed some senior royals expressed concerns about son Archie’s skin color even before his birth. Since their explosive 2021 Oprah interview, the world has been left wondering who the royal racists were.
Piers Morgan Names Royal Racists
Over two years down the line, the answer finally came to light in the pages of the book, Endgame by Omid Scobie— At least its Dutch translations. Notably, while the English version of the book made no mention of the names of the alleged royal racists, the versions released in the Netherlands name-dropped two senior royals as the alleged royal racists in separate extra lines of paragraphs.
Piers Morgan made these so-called royal racists known to his UK audience and the rest of the world in the Wednesday episode of his TalkTV show, Uncensored. He named King Charles and Kate Midleton as the two people who dropped derogatory comments about the color of Meghan and Harry’s son Archie’s skin while the former was still pregnant.
The Royal Family Threatens Legal Action Following Piers Morgan’s Revelation
Expectedly, the royal family isn’t taking these racist remarks in good fate, especially in the wake of multiple scandals they’ve faced since Megxit. Speaking to Telegraph UK, a royal insider confirmed the royal family was, in fact, “considering all options” to clean up the aftermath of Omid Scobie and Piers Morgan’s “royal racists” bombshell. In that case, legal action was not off the question per the outlet.
Meanwhile, the two senior royals caught in the drama, King Charles and Kate Middleton are taking the scandal in their strides. In true royal fashion, neither has openly commented on the “royal racist” claims. Rather, they’ve gone about their daily activities gracefully.
On Thursday night, Kate stepped out with husband Prince William to grace the Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall. the couple held hands upon stepping out of the vehicle, ignoring the questions from the slew of reporters quizzing them about the claims and compelling them to comment.
King Charles also reacted similarly, jetting off to Dubai on official duties. Completely overlooking the scandal, the royal had a brief bilateral meeting with Nigeria’s president Bola Ahmed Tinubu, and remains focused on the Cop28 environmental summit.
Notably, Omid has denied namedropping any royal in his book, attributing the extra paragraphs to a translation error. Although the Dutch copies of the book have since been pulled down from shelves to rectify the supposed error, he would have a harder time deleting it from the internet.
