Amid swirling rumors and speculation about the state of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's marriage, royal biographer Omid Scobie steps forward to set the record straight. In his latest promotional interview for the book "Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival," Scobie addresses these rumors head-on, emphatically denying any claims of marital discord between the Sussexes.
During an appearance on the "Something To Talk About" podcast, Scobie tackled the persistent narrative suggesting that Harry and Meghan are on the brink of divorce. Contrary to these rumors, Scobie, who has sources close to the couple, affirms that they are content with their life in America, along with their children. "Trust me, if I'd heard otherwise, I would want to add something in the book, so I could be the journalist who was on top of the story. But I haven't come across anything to suggest otherwise," he stated.
Scobie's insights into the couple's life reveal a stark contrast to the public speculation. He describes them as "closer than ever" and "genuinely happy," effectively quashing the tales of Prince Harry staying at a nearby hotel to escape domestic tensions. Scobie adds, "They have a huge guesthouse at the end of their estate. I'm sure he'd happily be able to stay in it if that really was the case, so as not to attract attention."
Further elaborating on their life in America during a separate interview with The Standard, Scobie expressed his belief that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have found a new sense of fulfillment in California. "They seem to be quite happy. I think it's clear that they've moved to the US and started a life of their own here that seems to be going well for them," he observed.
This narrative counters the widely held perception that the couple might be contemplating a return to the UK. According to Scobie, Harry and Meghan have effectively turned the page on their lives in the UK and are embracing their new chapter in the United States.
The assertions made by Scobie in his book and interviews offer a glimpse into the private life of the Sussexes, challenging the public's perception and the media's portrayal of their marriage. As a royal biographer with close sources, Scobie's comments add a layer of credibility to the ongoing conversation about one of the world's most watched couples.
