The “royal racists” scandal may lead to a deeper fracture between Harry and Meghan and the rest of the royals. A friend of William and Kate’s says relations are utterly broken.
The royals are resisting the temptation to comment on the race row. And early signs are that the strategy is working.
Asked if he wanted to apologize to the royal family, Omid Scobie told BBC’s “Newsnight” program, “It’s not for me to apologize because I still want to know what’s happened.”
Piers Morgan named them, the New York Post named them, and the internet knows who the royal racists are. But Omid Scobie insists it wasn’t anything to do with him.
Charles’ sympathetic response to Meghan has facilitated ongoing communication, Omid Scobie says, as speculation over the identities of the two “royal racists” looks set to ramp up.
With less than 24 hours to go until the hotly anticipated new book “Endgame” is published, preemptive retaliation appears to be the name of the game for the royals.
