The author of a soon-to-be-released book surrounding the Royal Family has criticised media coverage before it has even become available.

Omid Scobie is set to have 'Endgame' published on Tuesday (November 29) which covers a "fight for survival" within the Royal Household.

Extracts from the book have already been published in US and French media, but Scobie has said not all of them were accurate.

In a post on X, formerly known as Twitter, he said: "Whether you like my work or loathe it, all I ask is that if you are reading coverage about what’s supposedly inside #ENDGAME, please also read the book itself.

"Incorrect and bad translations, snippets without context, leaks etc. do not tell the full or accurate story. Thank you."

What were the media reports about?

Several UK newspapers reported what were said to be extracts from the book published this week in Paris Match, a French magazine.

This related to supposed details of conversations between the Duke of Sussex and his father, the King, earlier this year.

Additionally, it covers the relationship between Prince Harry and his brother, Prince William.

Alongside that, The Sun reported claims that the Duchess of Sussex named two members of the Royal Household who are alleged to have referred to the race of her then-unborn child, Archie, in the letters

Speaking to BBC News ahead of the book's release, Scobie said: "It has been hugely frustrating watching news sites run stories based on contextless and poorly translated snippets from a French serialisation of Endgame."

He also expressed disappointment at media reports that he said left readers "to believe that this is how the material - much of which is almost unrecognisable from the original English manuscript - appears in the book".

Scobie previously wrote the book 'Finding Freedom' which concerned the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepping back as working royals.

The 42-year-old journalist has consistently denied the Duke and Duchess were direct sources for his work, adding recently that he was not Meghan's friend and that "the Sussexes have nothing to do with" his latest book.
