Omid Scobie was asked, in all seriousness, if he would apologize to the Windsors

Omid Scobie began his in-person UK promotional blitz for Endgame on Thursday by the looks of it. His appearance on This Morning (on Thursday) was fascinating because he made news by confirming that the names of the “royal racists” had been widely known among the royal press corps. That interview was messy because of the interviewers, who kept interrupting him and insisting that he must have been personally briefed by Meghan. The level of delusional obsession on that island is something. Speaking of, on Thursday evening, he did a BBC interview (in-studio) and Victoria Derbyshire asked him, in all earnestness, if he would apologize to the royal family. LMAO. These people will simply never recover.

After a Dutch translation of his book Endgame named Kate Middleton and King Charles as the alleged “royal racists” who questioned Prince Harry about his children’s likely skin color, Omid Scobie Thursday night ducked responsibility for making the claim in a BBC interview, instead blaming “irresponsible people” in the U.K. for repeating the names.

Although he did not mention Piers Morgan by name, it was Morgan who last night said the royals’ names on his Talk TV show in the U.K., leading to a firestorm of follow-up media coverage. He said he was “frustrated” that the names had appeared in the Dutch version, saying: “The book was heavily vetted—legaled, i’s dotted, t’s crossed—and a book that I was extremely proud of [has now been] completely overshadowed…we have a full investigation going on into the series of events that happened.”

Newsnight presenter Victoria Derbyshire had previously pointed out that one of the translators earlier Thursday told the Daily Mail: “As a translator, I translate what is in front of me. The names of the royals were there in black and white. I did not add them. I just did what I was paid to do and that was translate the book from English into Dutch.”

Scobie added, “The English version of the book, the only one I know, the version that I signed off on; that is the book that is out there today. That is the book that has no names in it.”

He appeared to suggest he had not included the names because he would not be able to produce evidence for the claim, saying: “Ultimately, to write the names is a show and tell situation. There is no ability to show, so there was never any attempt to name.”

Derbyshire said: “But in some version you must have written the names in,” and asked Scobie if it was all a “publicity stunt.” He said it was not, adding, “I feel hurt by some of the things I have seen, suggesting all sorts—the conspiracy that this is a publicity stunt, that I am in cahoots with ‘my pals.’”

Asked if he wanted to apologize to the royals he said, “It’s not for me to apologize because I still want to know what’s happened.”

Derbyshire said: “The buck stops with you, surely?” Scobie replied, in what seemed to be a shot at one of his most famous detractors, Piers Morgan, who was the first British broadcaster to name Charles and Kate on air: “It doesn’t stop with me because there are irresponsible people in this country that have broken the law and repeated names that should never have been repeated. The book I wrote, the book I edited, the book I signed off on, did not have the names in it.”

[From The Daily Beast]

She wanted him to apologize to the Windsors for… what exactly? A translation mix-up? The poor, racist, colonialist, bigoted Windsors, what they’ve been put through! The poor sausages cannot complain or explain, remember? Anyway, Omid has been handling his business very well in this interviews, to the point where he looks like the only calm, reasonable one in what can only be described as a “clownstorm,” a clownshow sh-tstorm. In this interview, he also confirms that he’s received twenty death threats just this week. All because he wrote a historically accurate book about the Windsors, their racism and bigotry and how they can’t problem-solve their way out of a wet paper bag.

    These people go to school for journalism, work hard and become successful only to risk all that for a glorified, pale, stale group of welfare recipients. Truly, Omid needs to move on to bigger and better things and leave the rota all together because these people are losers. That symbiotic relationship is truly toxic. Omid and the Sussexes are too modern, adaptable and smart for this foolishness. That’s why the press are bitter because they don’t have the guts to get at the heart of the problem. They wish they had Omid and the Sussexes bravery. The royals and press need to stop acting as if people are stupid. Everyone knows the royals and press are in bed together. Spare and the documentary, not to mention Diana herself already exposed this. Why keep hiding it?

    • MF says:

      Yup, Omid is too good for this nonsense. I hope he makes bank on this book and can move on to something better. He got too much integrity and talent to deal with this liars and scammers all the time.

      • BeanieBean says:

        He did say he knew he was burning bridges with the publication of this book. I think he’s already moved on. And good for him!

      • StillDouchesOfCambridge says:

        Omid is too cool too smart to superior for thebritish press morons and biased racist uk interviewer I hope he BANKS on this book and lives a happily ever after, with a top job in america

      • The Old Chick says:

        He probably will move on, but that leaves a massive hole in royal reporting. Who will be better and more accurate in royal reporting? We’ll be left with the sycophants.

    • HillaryIsAlwaysRight says:

      Everyone is missing the most important question in these interviews with him. He’s apparently 42 (!!!). How does he look so young?! I want the details on his skin care routine! Omid, please publish a wellness book next!

    • CatMum says:

      Omid is not part of the rota! not all “royal reporters” are.

      “The Royal Rota includes journalism staff affiliated with the following professional organisations:

      News Media Association, which represents print journalism, including the Daily Express, the Daily Mail, the Daily Mirror, the Evening Standard, The Telegraph, The Times, and The Sun. [3]
      Wire Picture Agency
      Council of Photographic News Agencies Limited
      Independent Photographers Association
      United Kingdom television broadcast networks, such as BBC, Sky News, and ITN [4]”

    • Sara says:

      Omid is not a part of the Royal Rota. He does not write for the 4 UK tabloids that are, not for the Telegraph, which is the only newspaper that’s part of the Rota. He’s the royal editor for Harper’s Bazaar.

  2. Amy Bee says:

    Omid was very good in this interview as he was in the previous one. I liked the part where he said Harry and Meghan is irrelevant to this story, which is true. This is about the future of the Royal Family which doesn’t include Harry and Meghan and the press refuses to acknowledge that and to have a serious discussion about the Royal Family. I’m still pissed that, in publishing excerpts, People Magazine chose to focus on Harry and Meghan rather than the rest of the family. I believe that was deliberate to get clicks and to stay on the Royal Family’s good side.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Amy Bee, ITA, he’s handling it really well, and he’s pretty much the only person doing so. I feel so sorry for him. There is something seriously fcked up when a reporter is receiving death threats for something like this (I know that journalists have been receiving death threats and harassment since forever, but this is out of control and totally out of proportion considering the actual content of his book).

    • swaz says:

      Very proud of Omid, he gives great interviews with a lot of self control 😍

  3. Lau says:

    He shouldn’t bother with British interviews and just let them continue to promote the book for him on their salty island.

  4. sparrow says:

    There are loads of Brits on here, so some of this is well known to them not just me. The context on Omid’s first interview -This Morning is a daytime magazine show. The hosts really aren’t that bright. They are also very mainstream and keen to remain on the good side of the BRF (Philip Schofield was scathing about Meghan’s accusation of racism post Oprah). His later interview – Newsnight in the hands of Emily Maitlis. Brilliant. Victoria Derbyshire. Not so much. She’s really brought it down a rung, IMO. Omid should take comfort from the fact that he appeared on a Newsnight that’s past its prime.

    • OriginalMich says:

      Thanks for this! Emily is awesome. I’m going to try to find that interview. I’ve also just seen that he sat down with James O’Brien!

      • Nick G says:

        James O’Brien! Cannot wait! Thank you!

      • sevenblue says:

        @OriginalMich, thanks for the info! I didn’t know he also did James’s show. Yey!

      • OriginalMich says:

        He didn’t do the phone in show. He did a Full Disclosure!

      • Lissen says:

        Thank you for the link, @OriginalMich.
        It’s a great interview!!!!

      • aftershocks says:

        Yes, thanks for the link @OriginalMich. Omid is so smart and articulate. And so is James O’Brien! They both also have a ton of integrity and respect for journalism. That comes across with flying colors in this interview.

        Plus, Omid provides even more background on how he came to know people who know Meghan. The way Omid describes it in this interview, the mutual friends appear to be people who are involved in the production side and/or p.r. side of the entertainment industry, who apparently were trusted insiders working with Meghan when she and Harry were dating. Or else, they had worked with Meg previously, and had become reliable friends. Omid also directly explains the whole brouhaha, that his detractors often shrill about in regard to Meg not liking Omid saying she had a stylist.

        It’s really good to hear Omid clear up these misconstrued inferences and interactions. He provides context, clarity, and chronology. As well, it’s great learning more about Omid’s upbringing and what motivated his interest in entertainment journalism. That’s his overriding interest. His segue into covering the royals happened by chance as the world of celebrities and entertainment often collides with that of the British royals.

      • gabbygirl2 says:

        @ OriginalMich, thank you, thank you, thank you for that link. I just finished listening to it. Charles laid the foundation for the destruction of the Monarchy. Marrying whoremilla put a pix axel to that archaic institution, and now piers moron has peaked peoples interest who normally wouldn’t have paid attention nor purchased Omid’s book. The avalanche from the self-serving moron show will overtake and finally impolde the BRF. Now, I will sit back, watch and wait for my prediction to happen.

      • paintybox says:

        Ooh, thank you so much, @OriginalMich! 💐 Great link share!

    • Jais says:

      Not sure it’s fair to say the this morning hosts aren’t that bright. It’s a show with a more light-hearted focus. And still, they were more hard and serious with omid in a way I’ve never seen them do for any of the other white royal authors. As for the bbc and Victoria, again, I’ll say why don’t they ask Tom bower to apologize to the RF? Or any of the other royal authors? Whether it’s the bbc or a morning show, none of them are looking very bright on this topic. They’re all looking like sycophantic gate-keepers to the RF. They only want certain people to tell the story.

      • Lorelei says:

        That’s exactly it. They only want certain people telling certain stories. Unfortunately that’s not how the world works, regardless of the fact that they’ve been able to control the ROTA for so long.

      • Nic919 says:

        From what I have gathered the morning shows seems like Fox and Friends. A right wing show pretending it is light entertainment, with empty headed hosts spouting a scripted agenda.

        You would not see Good Morning America treat any guest so poorly.

      • Jais says:

        Guess I mean they’re bright enough to be very clear on who to go after and who not to go after. So yes following a scripted agenda.

      • sparrow says:

        Nic919 you’ve got it. This is a morning show targeted at a certain bracket of people. The presenters are generally not the brightest (I stand by that) and happy therefore to go along with what producers (and advertisers) feel is a safe approach. Put it this way, none of them really has the nous to start an off script position, which would require the knowledge and ability to run with it on his or her own. (You could say none of them has the courage, in terms of job security. I think this is a weaker factor, but possibly there.) When a past presenter, Schofield, did try to go off piste, during the abuse scandal, he got it monumentally wrong and fingers were burned.

  5. Brassy Rebel says:

    Why isn’t Piers Morgan in trouble for revealing the names? Or is that a stupid question? 🤔 I, for one, hadn’t heard them until he opened his pie hole.

    • Andy Dufresne says:

      @brassy rebel, that’s exactly what I’ve been thinking! People are pointing their fingers at the wrong individuals here. Deflection has always been the strategy for the Royal Family and the British Media.

    • Ginger says:

      Exactly. Piers outed both and no one is mentioning him at all. Of course they are coming for Omid because how dare he slightly criticize the RF. All of these journalists know what Omid said it true, a hit dog will holler

      • Where'sMyTiara says:

        Looking forward to Ofcom complaints about PM outing the BRF’s racists. If he wants to be a hypocrite and play stupid games, let him get slapped for his deeds and win stupid prizes

    • Jay says:

      Even further, why isn’t every member of the rota being asked to put it on the record, once and for all? I can only assume by their silence that what Omid said is perfectly true: they all knew. Hopefully the public starts wondering what else these stenographers for the palace are willing to keep secret.

      Otherwise, we would see outraged, upset reporters right now – frustration that they missed out on a big scoop or were misled by their sources. But we don’t see that.

    • mables says:

      that’s exactly what i was going to comment here! no one would know the names if morgan hadn’t said them. why is scobie being asked to apologize when it was morgan who spilled the beans? i thought he answered that question really well.

    • Jais says:

      Technically, Piers is right in that the information was already all over SM that day. Although, I’d argue the section about Kate was actually harder to confirm over SM but maybe that’s just what I noticed on that day. Piers had a choice. He could’ve said names are revealed but we’re not going to pay it any mind bc omid is a liar with no sources. That’s what they say about him anyways! There was a space where this could’ve been denied. But Piers chose not to do that. Bc he knew the names already. And was conveniently ready to talk about it that night almost as if he was anticipating the Dutch leak. Y’all, PM phone-tapped, spied on people and has done whatever he feels he needs to do. Ugh, I hate leaning into conspiracies but this is so weirdly convenient.

      • roooth says:

        Yep. #PissMoron ‘s boss wanted him back in the public eye, Murdoch owns Scobie’s publisher, bad Dutch translation, and, bam, Piss is back in the public’s face.
        How convenient, indeed

  6. Midnight@theOasis says:

    I hope Omid makes enormous bank 💵💰 from this book and leaves the BM and Rota in the dust. Hopeful he’s already got his future mapped out and will be going on to bigger and better things. He needs to leave Salt Island cause he’ll never be safe there.

    • aftershocks says:

      Omid discusses his plans, generally, toward the end of the podcast interview with James O’Brien, linked upthread by @OriginalMich. 👏🏽

  7. NotSoSocialB says:

    Well done, Omid. Well done.

  8. Becks1 says:

    I guess for the BRF they would rather people be obsessing over whether it was Omid or Murdoch who put the names in than everything else discussed in the book.

    LMAO at the idea that Omid should apologize to the BRF. Ummmmm okay?

    • Amy Bee says:

      @Becks: Most definitely. The Royal Family is a rotten institution.

    • ales says:

      The more the BRF and their flying monkeys attack the worse it looks for them. Whilst QEII was alive their behavior had some type of control, its now dropped down to schoolyard tantrums. Omid owes no one an apology, more so the BRF and the BM owe serious apologies to many people. Omid should receive an award for having the courage to write a book that reveals some of the disgusting behavior of all of them. The truth hurts and they dont like it…..

  9. Flower says:


    I seriously start to question if it’s time to leave the UK because the racism and gaslighting has become so unbearable?

    • janey says:

      I again find myself ashamed to be British. We are a laughing stock, politically, constitutionally and journalistically. I repeatedly find myself daydreaming of leaving so I hear you.

    • Tara says:

      @Flower I feel you. Throughout the interview, I had the impression she was simply trying to push Omid into a corner so that he would take the blame. She tried again and again and seemed to be under pressure. Was that her job? When that failed, the next attack followed – how can he treat the two couples differently? My sympathy for Omid for having to deal with something like this – and respect for how well he stood up to it. His whole attitude was upright – compared to the interviewer, who seemed rather desperate. I will definitely buy his book now, before I thought the media reports would be enough. But now my money will go where its deserved!! And something else is revealed here – the astute observer realizes that the same methods are now being applied to Omid as to Meghan. Straight out of the RF and RF Rota playbook. It’s amazing that they don’t seem to realize how they are exposing themselves on and on again. Lets have this discussion. Its needed! #endgame

  10. Leslie says:

    “A clownshow sh!tstorm” is the perfect description of the madness that calls itself journalism in the UK. And apologize to the Windsors – for doing nothing wrong? Why aren’t they beleaguering Pestilence Morgan for an apology? Imagine people being so insanely outraged that they have actually sent Omid death threats. Meghan said in the H&M Netflix documentary that this really frightens her…that people are so full of hatred that they have actually threatened her life. I’m SO glad she and Harry escaped when they did.

    • Cessily says:

      I want to know why the focus isn’t on PM who actually said the names in Britian to a British audience where these “privacy” laws apply?

      • Jaded says:

        Because Piss Moron is Camilla’s *good friend* and she protects him. It’s clear she’s got it in for Kate, but now that Charles’s name has been thrown into the mess I think relations between Cam and Chuck may be in tatters over this.

      • Blithe says:

        @Jaded, I’m adjusting my tin foil tiara for this: I think Camilla will be quite happy to do less Queening, get less public criticism, and enjoy her Ray Mill house, and the company of Andrew Parker Bowles — as their schedules mesh. She and Piers get to have a go at damaging Meghan and Kate; it gets people to stop viewing Camilla as the likely Royal Racist; there’s precious little that Kate can do to fight back; and both William and Camilla have more than a bit to gain from this — while viewing any damage to Charles and Kate as being quite acceptable.

  11. Cessily says:

    The focus should be on the death threats and this witch hunt needs to stop. It looks absolutely insane especially to the outside world. I imagine the Sussex’s threat level increased dramatically also.

  12. Dee(2) says:

    These people just can’t fathom a world where the Windsor’s are the party who is wrong. This is the same thing they ask about Harry and Meghan. Wouldn’t things just be better if they just apologized?!! Because as usual the REAL victims here are not the people perpetrating racist and violent actions, issuing out death threats, no it’s the people whose behavior that was reported on that deserve consideration, concern, and action. It’s so bizarre to be so wrapped up in an individual family culturally that despite all evidence to the contrary you just can’t acknowledge they aren’t great people.

  13. What he should apologize for telling the truth? Stick to your guns Omid and keep telling the truth.

  14. sevenblue says:

    I have no idea how he keeps a straight face with all these dumb*ss questions. He needs to share what meditation he does before going into these interviews. He is the only person who talks like a journalist in the royal reporter / rota world. No wonder he is the only one exposing the system. I hope he keeps safe. There are a lot of stupid, radicalized people out there.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ Exactly! That’s why the James O’Brien podcast interview with Omid Scobie is so refreshing. No dumb questions! Just an equal balance of intelligent, interesting questions followed by articulate, revealing responses. I came away both enlightened and entertained.

  15. JenBanana says:

    I went to my local B&N but couldn’t find a copy. Store employee said they were supposed to get the shipment in already but something happened with the shipment and it’s being held up. I wouldn’t be surprised if some salty Windsor fan was behind the hold up.😄
    I ended up just ordering it and now listening to Audible version until it’s delivered.

  16. Fancyhat says:

    Good for Omid.

    On a more important note, I know the ads are needed to generate money for this site but it’s becoming unreadable with all of the ads. The page is constantly reloading and jumping around to accommodate ads.

  17. Scar❤️ says:

    Since the Windsors don’t give apologies, they don’t deserve them.

  18. Mslove says:

    I think I have it figured out. Omid purposely slipped the names in the Dutch version, so that he could use mind control on Piers Morgan to reveal the names that everyone already knew.
    This is getting ridiculous. The BM need to get a grip, and maybe focus on the fact their king said those horrible things about his grandchild.

  19. blunt talker says:

    If everybody look back at the Oprah interview of Meghan and Harry-I believe one of said the conversations about his children came up before they got married or before she got pregnant-that tells me the royal family had a problem about Harry’s children’s color and how they could be darker and that would look strange or odd in this family-Somebody recheck this -because if you are talking to Harry before the marriage and before Meghan got pregnant you are alarmed about the color of Harry’s children not fitting into the white space of the royal family

    • WaterDragon says:

      I DVRed the Oprah interview and rewatch it at least once a month. Meghan mentioned that there was concern expressed about Archie’s skin color while she was pregnant. When Oprah tried to pin her down, she said that she heard this from Harry. Later when Harry joined the interview, Oprah tried to pin him down. That was when he said that these color concerns were expressed before they even got married, more like in the context of how will the children look, etc. He mentioned that that was when he knew he and Meghan getting married was not going to be easy. Harry also said he was not going to reveal who was expressing these concerns.

      I think the BARF was mad at Harry for even telling Meghan about what they said. If you remember, at the time of the post Oprah interview freakout, a lot of the grousing was about how dare Harry reveal private family conversations, blah, blah. As if any normal husband would not discuss everything with his WIFE, for god’s sake! (Makes me wonder about their marriages, to be honest.)

      My guess is that all of the senior members (except the Queen and Phillip) probably said something to Harry at some point. They are all racists as far as I am concerned.

    • Jais says:

      Still remember how I deleted my Oprah interview from dvr. Why why did I do that???

      • WaterDragon says:

        Did you check the deleted list to see if it is retrievable? I have had to retrieve things before and it worked.

        One of the things about the Oprah interview that people forget is that it was actually 2.5 hours long. Oprah then edited it down to 1.5 hours more or less. So sometimes it seems a little choppy in places. I remember reading that Meghan thought the big take away would be about how she was depressed and unable to get any help. But instead the big freak out was about the skin color comments, which really tells the story. Guilty dogs bark.

      • Jais says:

        I did! But I checked a year later once I realized it was no longer available so 😂. A friend from NZ wanted it watch it last year bc she never saw it but we realized we couldn’t find it anywhere. You made the correct choices @waterdragon.

  20. Concern Fae says:

    This has the feeling of a fragging. Get the names out there, have the “translator’s error” become the story rather than what’s actually in the book.

    Do I think that’s what actually happened? No. But it feels like the Dan Rather incident from the 2000 campaign. He was investigating how Bush avoided the draft and that he didn’t actually show up for his National Guard duty. Rather ran his well researched report. Immediately there was hue and cry over one of the documents being forged. However, Rather forging the document is ridiculous. His report would have stood without it. Far more likely is that someone arranged for him to get a forged version of accurate information. Scobie is dealing with the exact same sorts of people here.

    Very interested to see where this leads.

    • Lorelei says:

      I’d forgotten about the Dan Rather incident; it was infuriating. This is, too, and I’m glad Omid is standing his ground and not admitting to something he didn’t do just to appease some nasty people.

    • bisynaptic says:


  21. Libra says:

    This is the version I have heard and it does sound possible. In a much earlier draft of the book, Omid pencilled in the margins a sentence he wondered if he could use regarding the race conversation and was shot down by the lawyers who said no. Because different countries have different publishers, somehow this draft survived and the interpreter added the sentence.

    • sevenblue says:

      He clearly said he never wrote down the names though. In Dutch version, there are full sentences with the names. So, someone wrote them and added to the final version. The truth will eventually come out, so there is no advantage for him to lie about that.

  22. February pisces says:

    Piers Morgan leak their names, and yet omid has to apologise? Gawd I hate these people.

  23. Mary Pester says:

    Sorry, but she should have said, “Omid, do you agree that the likes of Tom Bowel Angela LEVIN and Peirs Morgan, should now be apologising to Harry and Megan, because as you said, the names of the Royal racists have been known in fleet street for a long time, so NO Harry and Megan were not lieing in the Ophra interview. Then shouldn’t Morgan be apologising to the Royal family for outing the racists on television without telling them first, and before he leaves the UK for the US, where he will be fronting another talk show for Mr murdoch

    • Jaded says:

      Stop making so much sense @Mary Pester! And include Jeremy Clarkson too, in fact all of Fleet Street and the tabloid bottom-feeders should sign a blanket apology to the Sussexes.

    • roooth says:

      And Murdoch owns the publishing company that published Scobie’s book and sent the wrong translation to Dutch publishers……

  24. DaniM says:

    Victoria Derbyshire is usually a bit more even-handed than this, so I’m disappointed that she’s putting the blame squarely on Scobie when he’s shown more journalistic integrity in his decade as a royal reporter than most so-called regular news journalists in the UK tabloids full stop.

    • WaterDragon says:

      Totally agree. I am not a Brit, but from these interview snippets, It seems as though there are NO ACTUAL journalists on any television show over there, just BARF lackeys. Hang in there Omid. You are the real deal.

      • sparrow says:

        Newsnight is brilliant under other presenters. But Derbyshire is pretty crap, imo. She has shown such a weak grasp of the Middle East, with guests having to remind her of countries involved and geographies. If you don’t know it, research it, because this is a serious programme you’re fronting.

      • Mary Pester says:

        @waterdragon, and as a Brit, I can tell you that a lot of us gave up believing in journalistic integrity in this country a long time ago!! When it comes to the disgusting, benefit claiming Royals, the British press fall into one of two camps sycophants or cowards.

  25. Her Again says:

    I think this is a big scheme to derail Scobie’s publicity tour and deflect from all the other tea in the book……….

    • Lia says:

      This! I am starting to think that this is the reason why they trotted out Piers Morgan.
      Now everyone is talking about the names rather than all of the saucier parts of the book.

      • Blithe says:

        And instead of talking about the serious concerns raised in the book. Does monarchy have a value? Dos this particular monarchy — post QEII have a value? And, if the BRF represents the UK — what does it say about the UK that their representatives are racist, lazy, eccentric and extremely expensive— at best?

  26. J.ferber says:

    This makes my blood boil.

  27. 411fromdownunder says:

    I live in Sydney and on Thurs tried two downtown bookstores for Endgame. Neither had it, one was an independent bookseller of which the shop assistant had no idea which book I was talking about, the other a huge corp chain of which the shop assistant said it was not getting copies for two weeks.

    They were both saying, did you want us to order? Yes, but I’ll do via my kobo I guess.

    I don’t know who the purchasers are for these shops, but clearly they are British royal supporters.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      411fromdownunder, if you want to try and find the email for the home office of the bookstore and ask them why they are delaying shipping. It would be interesting to know what they say. I think someone else said there weren’t copies in a store they went to, too. Interesting.

  28. Nina says:

    This is perhaps the only time it is suitable to issue a non-apology apology:

    ‘I’m sorry that the Windsors’ feelings were hurt by the Dutch publishers revealing who the Royal racists were.’

    I said this last week, but it bears repeating: It really is wild to see nearly every media outlet of an entire country go DARVO.

  30. Well Wisher says:

    There is no need not to believe the translator and Omid Scobie, it his publisher who is the problem….

  31. Macky says:

    Ohhhhhhhh. This is my first time hearing scobie speak! I see why they are critical and weary of him.

    1. He seems to not care.
    It’s like he has another job lined up. He wasn’t scared to speak his mind. The only other person that goes off script is Piers Morgan- he has enough blackmail material to fill the Thames. Scobie wasn’t trying to get a second interview.

    2. He is smart.
    He completely answered her questions and did not waiver from the truth. He refused to let her railroad him. He knew she was angling to trap him. He was like “NO”. It goes back to number 1. Seems like he isn’t hard up for money.

  32. CM says:

    Bravo Scobie!!! He is doing an amazing job – its unfortunate that he has to “efend himself constantly but his responses are perfect. Well done!

    S c o b i e wrote about Camilla and was careful talking about her being a country woman interested in gardens And so on. But he managed to bring in how she was involved with Charles during his marriage to Diana. He leaves out Charles other relationships including dale tryon. He brings in how Camilla cooperated with penny including Diana bashing books . He does the same with Kate some praise but not keeping out her behavior to Meghan and the crying story.

  34. Unblinkered says:

    And today’s D Mail carries a darvo from……..

    Gary Middleton.

    What are they even doing giving such a disgraced creature a forum: convicted for beating his wife in the street, photographed carrying white powder at a party; brawling & urinating in a London street. And so on.

    It’s time the British Prime Minister stepped in and retired Carol and Gary Middleton from any further sort of public profile. They’ve tarnished the British Royal Family

      Gary goldsmith is one of the biggest self righteous hypocrites ever. If William has any sense he would tell Carole and Kate to rein in the hypocritical uncle. Gary is getting slammed a lot on the dm comments. Though the bots are there praising him . William did not choose well.

      Just like you wrote. Doesn’t parliament step in eventually. It seems to me parliament is letting the royals hang themselves. At the very least its sink or swim. Usually parliament has so many opinions about the royals. For the last what 9 years it’s like the side “f– it”. They don’t even try. Just like I think some of the Camilla supporters are really anti-monarchist in disguise.
