Piers Morgan names two senior royals accused of racism in Omid Scobie's Endgame book

It comes after the release Omid Scobie's Endgame, with the Dutch version naming the two senior royals at the centre of the claims.

Piers Morgan has named the two senior members of the royal family that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry alleged in 2021 shared concerns about their unborn son's skin colour.

On Piers Morgan Uncensored, he said, “I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family and until there is actual evidence of those comments I will never believe it”, before naming the alleged pair.

Piers said he wanted to "cut through all this crap" and name the family members.

"Frankly, if Dutch people wandering into a bookshop can pick it up and see these names, then you, British people, here — who actually pay for the British royal family — you’re entitled to know too," he said. "And then we can have a more open debate about this whole farrago. Because I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family — and until there is actual evidence of those comments being made I will never believe it.

"But now we can start the process of finding out if they ever got uttered, what the context was, and whether there was any racial intent at all. Like I say, I don’t believe there was. The royals named in this book are…"

Piers also slammed Harry and Meghan for never providing 'evidence' of the comments and not naming the royals, despite the Duke of Sussex releasing a tell-all book and the couple appearing in a Netflix documentary.

It comes after the release of royal author Omid Scobie's book Endgame, with the Dutch version naming the two senior royals at the centre of the claims.

The book was quickly pulled off the shelves after the translation revealed the two royals, with Omid denying ever writing the names, despite them making their way to the Dutch version.

"How do you mis-translate names?" Piers questioned, adding, "They're either there, or there not."

He said that Omid must be furious that the names have leaked, adding he must be wanting 'names' of people who leaked the royals.

Dutch royal journalist Rick Evers revealed on Good Morning Britain that the first name was "very specific", while the other was "a little bit vague".

Omid told Dutch show RTL Boulevard that he never mentioned the name in his manuscript, saying, "The book is available in a number of languages and, unfortunately, I can't speak Dutch, so I haven't seen the copy for myself, but if there have been any translation errors I am sure the publisher has got it under control.

"For me, I edited and wrote the English version. There has never been a version that I've produced that has names in it."

Yahoo Lifestyle has chosen not to repeat the names.

Meghan and Harry make bombshell claims

Meghan made the allegations during her bombshell 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, referencing the conversation after revealing it was decided that Archie wouldn't be given a title and, therefore, would not have any security before he was born.

"Who is having that conversation with you?" an incredulous Oprah asked the Duchess.

She refused to tell her who it was with, saying it would be 'damaging' for that person.

"That was relayed to me by Harry from conversations the family had with him," she clarified.

"Was the concern he would be too brown?" Oprah asked.

"I wasn't able to follow up why, but if that's the assumption you're making it feels like a pretty safe one," she responded.

Meghan explained her shock at the fact that the first royal, who was a person of colour, would not be given the same title as others in the family.

When Charles became King, however, Archie and the pair's daughter Lilibet were given the titles of Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet.

Harry told Oprah at the time that he was adamant that he wouldn't reveal who he had the controversial conversation with.

"I’m never going to share," he told the TV host. "But at the time... at the time it was awkward. I was bit shocked."

"Can you tell us what the question was?" Oprah pushed.

"No, I’m not comfortable sharing that," he said.
