Paul Burrell has called out fellow royal author Omid Scobie for his critique of Kate, Princess of Wales, in Endgame.

"How dare he criticize a girl that has given up her life, a woman who has dedicated herself to the service of her country, how dare he pull the rug from underneath her feet?" Burrell told an outlet in defense of the future queen.

Neither King Charles III nor Catherine, Princess of Wales, has publicly commented on their mention in 'Endgame.'

"Kate has never put a foot wrong, and the sadness is that she doesn't have a voice to answer back, she has to take it, and there are people out there who will believe this rubbish. As far as I'm concerned, it's a grenade that has been thrown into the middle of the family, and it has casualties, and Kate is one of them, despite doing nothing wrong. I am furious that he has attacked Kate," he added.

A lot of the scandal surrounding the book has centered around its Dutch edition, which was pulled from shelves after it was revealed that Kate and King Charles III were mentioned in the book. The two senior royals were named as not one but "two royal racists" who allegedly questioned Prince Archie's potential complexion.

'Endgame' has been described as being deeply critical of the British royal family.

"I think the fire around the book has made it bigger than it, would have been originally, it's a clever PR stunt. But where did he get all the information from in the first place? I doubt very much that he has had an audience with the King," Burrell observed.

He concluded: "I think this is tragic, it's unbelievable that he can get away with it and the royals don’t have a right to reply, they have to keep quiet, and they have always done that."

Omid Scobie previously worked with Meghan Markle on 'Finding Freedom' in 2020.

"This has closed the door on any reconciliation with Meghan as far as Kate is concerned. She has had enough of Meghan’s antics and wants absolutely nothing to do with her. She will never make up with her," a royal source told an outlet.

Even though there is no evidence to suggest the Duchess of Sussex had anything to do with Scobie's book, it is believed the future queen blames Meghan for causing the uproar in the first place. The former actress and Prince Harry infamously sat down with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021 for an interview. At one point in the tell-all, the Duchess emotionally tells the media mogul that an unnamed senior royal asked her what color Prince Archie's skin would be when he was born.

Racism was strongly implied in the revelation, as she told the former talk show host that naming the person "would be very damaging for them." Harry then later told Winfrey: "That conversation I’m never going to share. But at the time, it was awkward. I was a bit shocked. I’m not comfortable sharing it."
