According to royal author Omid Scobie, Prince Harry and Prince William's relationship is officially beyond repair, as Prince William has "moved on" to protect the monarchy.
Royal author Omid Scobie's new book, Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival, has been making headlines ahead of its November 28th release date, as the book is set to reveal new insights into the fallout between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the royal family. According to a recent excerpt of the book that was published by People, it appears as though the relationship between Prince William and Prince Harry is "beyond repair".
In writing Endgame, Omid, who also co-penned Finding Freedom, a biography about Harry and Meghan's departure from the royal fold, found that the relationship between Harry and William is still incredibly strained, even a year later.
"I saw Harry’s release of Spare as his last attempt at telling his family how he’s felt for years," Omid said. "Because clearly there’s never been an open enough forum to have these conversations or share these feelings."

Omid also said that, while writing the book, he sourced some more specific information about how William feels about Harry a year after the release of Spare. "I was talking to a source quite early on in the process, and they called Harry a 'defector' and said that was William’s view," Omid said. "These were two men who once upon a time were firmly aligned in their outlook. One of them had to move on to also protect the crown."
The question also has been loosely posed if the monarchy will continue to exist in the coming years, as some feel the tradition of it has become outdated, especially after Harry and Meghan's exit from the family as working royals. Regardless, Harry is now seen by the family as an "enemy" and a "threat to the crown".
"These are probably sad realisations that will be had far too late in the journey," Omid said."In the eyes of some within the institution, Harry is a threat to the crown. His freedom to exert his own thinking outside of the confines of the institution has made him the enemy."
Ultimately, Omid says, all of these moves are at the mercy of the crown, and they can either choose to adapt to the times or not. "There’s a real chance here to learn and adapt to modern society and also make up for mistakes of the past," he said. "It’s their move."
