"I don't believe that they haven't controlled this new book. Omid Scobie and a lot of it is their wish to be horrendous, but pretend it's not them. I think if you look back on how they behave, that's how they behave," royal author Angela Levin told an outlet.
"She is now saying that she's had nothing whatsoever to do with it. But that's what they said last time with the first book, and she had to go to court and apologize because she had done so," Levin added.
She continued: "We have this swap, swap, swap, swap, which is what goes on all the time. And in a way, this is what's happening about 'we do want to come over for Christmas' and 'we don't want to come over for Christmas', because if you know what's coming up [in] this book, why would you want to go there? She doesn't."
Endgame is starting to generate controversy, not so much for its revelations about the royal family, but what some claim are PR exercises Scobie is using to manipulate sales.
Some reports suggest the Dutch edition of the book, which has been shelved temporarily, named "two royal racists" and the reveal was somehow a "translation error," which is not going over well with some royal commentators who questioned the news.
Royal expert Phil Dampier dished that he found it "very hard to believe that this error occurred due to a problem with the translation," while veteran royal reporter Michael Cole believes the spill is nothing more than a "publicity stunt" on Scobie's part to drive more attention toward the tome to increase sales.
"Having only written and edited the English version of Endgame, I can only comment on that manuscript, which does not name the two individuals who took part in the conversation. I'm happy to hear that the error in the translation of the Dutch edition book is being fixed," the author told an outlet when discussing the error.
Despite these claims, the book's content is once again being rumored to be nothing more than a PR stunt by Meghan, with Scobie as her "mouthpiece."
"It's said in the book that she absolutely can't bear the royal family and the way the royals operate, and she doesn't want to know about it. This is typical Meghan, because she uses people until she doesn't need them anymore, and then she moves on. She did this with her first husband. She's done it with lots of friends, and that's how she operates," Levin concluded.
