Palace could take legal action over Omid Scobie book with King Charles taking ... trends now

The King is taking the furore over the Omid Scobie book 'very seriously' and will consult senior advisors next week on the family's next step.

Buckingham Palace is 'considering all options' after two senior royals - reported to be the King himself and his daughter-in-law, the Princess of Wales - were named in a Dutch-language edition of the ill-reviewed Endgame as having been identified by Meghan over claims 'concern' was expressed about her future son's skin colour.

This includes the possibility of legal action.

It comes as Scobie, appearing on BBC's flagship Newsnight programme, said he was 'hurt' and 'frustrated' by the week's events.

But he refused to apologise to the royals concerned, saying: 'It's not for me to apologise because I still want to know what's happened.' He has previously described it as a 'translation error' but says an 'investigation' has now been launched.

Meanwhile sources close to the Duchess of Sussex, who allegedly wrote down the names of the two family members in letters to King Charles, have insisted to that she 'never intended them to be publicly identified' and that it 'was not leaked to Mr Scobie by anyone in her camp', according to the Telegraph.

However The Mail understands that Buckingham Palace has also been internally investigating who could have seen the letters from their end.

They are considered so deeply personal that only a 'tiny handful' of people are believed to have seen them and there is 'extreme confidence' that the leak didn't come from them.

The King was last night due to arrive back in Britain from Dubai, where he gave a well-received keynote speech at the COP28 climate conference, and head straight for his Sandringham estate in Norfolk.

Aides have been keen for the furore not to derail his big moment but will resume discussions next week as to where they go next.

They have, it is understood, been 'greatly encouraged' by the sympathetic public reaction to Scobie's revelations, which may have a bearing on their final decision.

Although it was billed as a look 'inside the royal family and the monarchy's fight for survival', Endgame's relentlessly savage tone, attacks on the Princess of Wales - whom the author describes as a 'pliable' Stepford wife and a part-time royal because of her devotion to her children - has seen it roundly denounced and attracted a slew of eye-wincingly brutal reviews.
