Piers Morgan has taken aim at the lack of response from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle concerning "racist" claims against senior royals in Omid Scobie's Endgame.

"Harry and Meghan have stood by in stunning silence as the claims in Omid Scobie’s book have circulated around the world," the broadcaster shared.

"They normally cannot wait to correct the record — as they see it — whenever there’s the slightest whiff of a media injustice. So, if they are not the source of Scobie’s allegations, or if they don’t agree with them , why the silence?" Morgan added.

He continued: "First, Scobie denied ever naming the 'royal racists' in any versions of his book, while completely failing to explain how they magically appeared in the Dutch translation. Then the translators of the book pointed out that all they’d done is... translate the book. Now, The Times reports that an earlier version of the book did contain the names, and it was sent to the Dutch publisher."

This has led to calls from many, including a Member of Parliament, for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's royal titles to be stripped once and for all.

Many analysts are calling for King Charles to remove Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's royal titles 'once and for all.'

"The Duke and Duchess can be Mr. and Mrs. like the rest of us. If someone doesn't want to be royal, that is a decision we respect, but they should not keep the titles and privileges if they trash an institution that plays an important part in our nation's life," Conservative MP Bob Seely told an outlet about his proposed parliamentary bill.

As for the book's author, he remains resolute in his claim that he did not know the Dutch print of his tome featured Charles III and Kate, Princess of Wales, as the senior royals who allegedly questioned Prince Archie's complexion.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not commented on the scandal surrounding Omid Scobie's 'Endgame.'

"I wrote and edited the English version of the book with one publisher. That then gets licensed to other publishers, I obviously can't speak Italian, German, French, Dutch, or any of the other languages that come out. So the only time you hear about the book is once it's come out in the public domain. I'm as frustrated as everyone else. I make it very clear in this book that I, in every way possible, want to adhere to the laws surrounding this subject," Scobie observed.

He continued: "It's why I've been very careful in how it's described in the book, and it's why I've never spoken about it beyond what I've said in the public domain before. The reality is though that this is information that is not privy just to me. Journalists across Fleet Street have known those names for a long time. We've all followed a certain code of conduct when it comes to talking about it."
