Publisher's Summary

Endgame, the explosive book from longtime royal journalist Omid Scobie and author of the international blockbuster Finding Freedom, is a penetrating investigation into the current state of the British monarchy—an unpopular king, a power-hungry heir to the throne, a queen willing to go to dangerous lengths to preserve her image, and a prince forced to start a new life after being betrayed by his own family.

Queen Elizabeth II’s death ruptured the already-fractured foundations of the House of Windsor—and dismantled the protective shield around it. With an institution long plagued by antiquated ideas around race, class and money, the monarchy and those who prop it up are now exposed and at odds with a rapidly modernizing world. Relying on his vast experience as a royal reporter and over a decade of conversations and interviews with current and former Palace staff, trusted friends of the royals and even the family members themselves, Scobie pulls back the curtain on an institution in turmoil to show what the monarchy must change in order to survive.

This is the monarchy’s endgame. Do they have what it takes to save it?

too biases

It's better written than the last one but was hard to get through because it was so so biased. For example, he would list things that William and Charles had done right then say its not enough or too little too late. Then for H and M he had excuses and explanations for any criticism. I did like his explanation of why he supports them. I thought the book would take a turn there but it didn't. He really hates the Royal family but he's made a good living off of all of them.

Family morals

How can you look up to a king with no family values. Family first everything else falls in behind that. The measure of a person is what he leaves behind and all I see is a broken family never mind royal that’s the last thing I see.

Nothing new!

I was really looking forward to listening to this book. it was pretty much "same old, same old". Nothing new was said...he was just repeating what had been written in many other books. the narrator has a some what muffled voice which can be difficult to hear at times. Not particularly interesting.

Contradictory

I personally found that this book was contradictory at times and I believe that there does not seem to be as much research put into it as Finding Freedom.

It’s unfortunate that the focus seems to continue with the Sussex rift instead of on things that are just as tarnishing to the reputation of the Firm.

Scobie disdain for the monarchy and his pro Meghan and Harry voice.

Scobie did nothing but pick holes in the monarchy and the institution. Some of his information could only have come from Harry and Meghan although he denied it. Nothing he said was new, nor was it always believable and appeared assumptive and speculative at best. He’s bitter and retaliatory for being brought to task, and I have no respect for him. My regret is that I spent money to read it.

Royal hatred.

I should have believed the reviews. The vitriol the author has for the royal family is appalling and his loose interpretation of the truth is on full display.

Bias

I actually did not even bother to finish the book! First of all, I found it quite boring and many parts, and extremely biased in favour of Harry and Megan.

Best inside story of the Royals

Worth the read, well investigated. The firm is a waste of tax payer money! Good for Harry to get the hell out!

Same old story

A few minor new things but it’s all the same old story. Nothing we really don’t know before.

Glad to read and make up my own mind

Interesting to get this point of view especially chapter 13 - glad to make up my own mind. Narration annoying when sometimes ending a sentence that is to soft to hear that I’d have to rewind to catch what he says in then end
