Prince William has allegedly found himself in a strategic competition with his father, King Charles III, for the mantle of leading the royal family.
According to author Omid Scobie's unrestrained new book, Endgame, the Prince of Wales and his father, King Charles, are engaged in a power struggle for leadership within the royal family.
The book portrays Prince William as a determined, ambitious, and sometimes fiery figure, eagerly anticipating his chance to ascend to the throne.
Scobie wrote, “He’s not giving his father the same space Charles did with the Queen,” adding, “There’s no time for that.”
As per Scobie, both the father and the son share a common source of dissatisfaction with Prince Harry.
However, they hold divergent perspectives on the ideal governance and management of the royal family.
He further added, “Contrary to public belief, [Charles] leads with his head and his heart,” adding, “[William] is colder in that respect. He just wants to get the job done and has no problem taking prisoners along the way.”
The British journalist characterized the offices situated in Kensington Palace and Buckingham Palace as bustling centres filled with conflicting agendas, where various factions hold divergent perspectives on the approach to modernizing the monarchy.
As While William “respects his father”, Scobie said, “their views, [and] their outlooks are very different, and I can see that becoming an issue over the years ahead”.
Scheduled for release on November 28, Endgame offers a scrutinising perspective on the contemporary state of the monarchy, exploring its perceived struggle for survival in the 21st century.
This publication follows Omid Scobie's earlier work, Finding Freedom, which, published three years prior, narrates the love story, marriage, and subsequent relocation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Harry and Meghan, after their resignation as senior members of the royal family.
