"It will be interesting to see what they do. Before the book came out, they were trying to distance themselves from it," marketing analyst Pauline Maclaran dished.
"The Sussexes may be worried the book will spoil a chance of restoring relations with the royal family. Many media outlets are reminding people that Omid Scobie was Harry and Meghan's mouthpiece," she added. "If that continues, it will damage Harry and Meghan more than the royals. For the royals, it's just another emotional frenzy... They can move past it."
The Dutch version of the tome named King Charles III and Catherine, Princess of Wales, as the royals who questioned what color Prince Archie's skin would be in 2019. In the 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview, Meghan alluded to one senior royal who allegedly hinted at the future baby's complexion.
Although Scobie's narrative has nothing to do with Harry and Meghan — unless it comes out that the Duchess assisted him with this book as well — some suggest the pair consider suing their "lapdog."
"Presumably Meghan and Harry have given a solemn undertaking that this should never see the light of day, and given their absolute horror at invasions of privacy, it is frankly astonishing that they haven't already instructed Schillings [their legal team] to issue injunctive proceedings against Omid Scobie. He's let the cat out of the bag, and they can also get the injunction against the world — and it could be the great rapprochement," legal analyst Mark Stephens dished.
Stephens continued: "Any injunction would apply to future publication or repetition of the names and could be sought at the High Court in London. You're mainly looking to prevent him or anyone else from repeating information that should have never seen the light of day."
Neither the Duke and Duchess of Sussex nor the King and Princess of Wales have publicly commented on the copy error controversy with Endgame. Sources close to Harry and Meghan stepped forward to establish that the fifth in line to the throne and former actress never intended for the mystery royal to be named in public.
Charles III and his future queen daughter-in-law have also remained mum on the revelation, and like any royal responses to virtually anything, this is expected to continue. The King is currently in Dubai attending the COP28 climate change summit and ignored all reporters and journalists who asked him about the accusations.
