Description of the book

The new book from bestselling author Omid Scobie shedding light on the Royal Family, with unique insight and exclusive access.

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?

Reviews of Endgame

Felt he was too biased. Seems to be on harry and Megan's side. Would of thought he'd be more neutral. Nothing against Harry, I hope he and his family reconcile, not a huge Meghan fan but Harry deserves to be happy I guess

Very interesting overview of the Royal Family, the historical context of this institution and their role in the future of this country and other commonwealth states, who hold increasingly Republican views. Beautifully narrated by the author with current issues surrounding the Royal Family deftly tackled. I loved the use of quotations at the start of each chapter, to contextualise the content that was to follow. On the downside, at times I felt the author was a little too critical of Kate, always suggesting an ulterior motive for her actions, even her charitable endeavours. I feel the same compassion should be shown to Kate wanting time with her children as is shown to Meghan wanting to step away from the limelight and focus on her family.

A bit of a slog but some interesting chunks & tales of the press & media.

Such unsubstantiated claims and drivel….
