Piers Morgan has identified two royals said to have been named in Omid Scobie‘s book Endgame as ‘discussing Prince Archie’s skin colour’.
The broadcaster revealed the names on his Talk TV show last night (Wednesday November 29). He later shared his claim with his 8.7 million Twitter followers.
According to reports, a Dutch translation of Endgame containing the names went on sale in the Netherlands earlier this week. The publisher is said to have withdrawn and pulped copies, with claims there was an error in translation.
And appearing on This Morning today (Thursday November 30), Mr Scobie said: “I never submitted a book that had those names in it.”

Piers Morgan: ‘You’re entitled to know too’
Former GMB co-host Piers said his naming the royals alleged to have been identified by the Duchess of Sussex in letters written to King Charles ensured there might be a “more open debate about this whole farrago”.
He said: “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.”
I don’t believe any racist comments were ever made by any of the royal family.
Piers continued: “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.”
He then revealed the Royal Family members said to have been named in Endgame.
