Prince Harry seems to have his back against the wall these days due to his numerous legal challenges.
"Who is Harry not suing right now? I shouldn't say that, hope it's not me next," royal and entertainment commentator Kinsey Schofield quipped when discussing the fiery-haired prince's recent headlines.
"It looks like Harry is in fight or flight mode, while the Wales family — under attack over the last few weeks — seem to be staying focused in the giving spirit and getting us all excited about the holidays. But when it comes to this court situation with the Duke of Sussex, Harry's attorney is fighting that the article that was published is an attack on Prince Harry's honesty and integrity — that's how he worded this," she added.
Schofield continued: "And it undermines Prince Harry's charity work and efforts to tackle misinformation online. So, the irony looking over the last 12 months, because how can you not look back over the last 12 months and think about honesty, and integrity with Harry and Meghan, there seems to be a complete lack of it. And the misinformation — look at the slew of lies that have come to fruition. We realized that a lot of things that Omid Scobie has told us are not true."
Among many claims in Scobie's new tome and a statement Meghan made in 2022's Harry & Meghan is that the Duchess of Sussex-to-be was not adequately prepared for what it meant to be a senior royal in the British monarchy. Numerous commentators have spoken out on how this claim is unfounded.
It's "a total lie. There was prep for everything, walkabouts — even though she was engaged to someone who’d done hundreds of them — clothes, everything. The level of support was intense," royal expert Roya Nikkah dished.
"But it's only sold 6,000 copies in the U.K. and 9,000 copies in the U.S., so doesn't this feel like a whole lot of chaos over nothing?" she added when discussing Endgame's lackluster sales so far.
The book further came under fire when it was revealed that a Dutch "translation error" named King Charles III and Kate, Princess of Wales, as the "royal racists" from Harry and Meghan's 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview.
"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 told an outlet when defending his claim that he had nothing to do with the naming scandal.
