King Charles' surprising nickname for Prince Harry leaked in bombshell book

Charles was outraged that Harry would "divulge details of family feuds".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's friend and author Omid Scobie is set to release his new book Endgame this week, with details of the book leaking to a British tabloid newspaper. The book is believed to be a "penetrating investigation" into the royal family following the death of Queen Elizabeth II in September 2022.

Excerpts of the book have been published by The Sun, with the newspaper being sent an advanced copy ahead of its publication.

In the book, Omid writes that King Charles had an interesting nickname for his son after he and Meghan signed their $100 million Netflix deal, leaving His Majesty furious.


"At the Palace, heads were in hands and migraines were brewing," the author writes, adding that Charles was outraged that Harry would "divulge details of family feuds".

This deal was the turning point for Charles, who had previously discouraged people from speaking about Harry and Meghan.

"(The show) took the wind out of everyone’s sails," an aide told Omid. "(He) went from not wanting anyone to talk about his son to openly criticising 'that fool.'"

Omid also claims Charles resented Harry's popularity with the media and that the King turned a blind eye when aides leaked details of his sons to the media.

King Charles is a 'pampered' royal

Elsewhere in the book, Omid writes that King Charles is a 'pampered' royal who has his shoelaces ironed for him and insists on travelling with perfectly steamed 1,000-thread-count bed linen.

Apparently, he also requires someone to squeeze one inch of toothpaste on his toothbrush as part of his bedtime routine.


"When laces get even the smallest bit threadbare, a staff member must quickly switch them out with a fresh, ironed pair," an excerpt in The Sun read. "There is even a rumour (one that, surprisingly, sources have confirmed) that Charles likes to have someone squeeze exactly one inch of toothpaste on to his toothbrush for him ahead of his bedtime routine."
