OMID Scobie’s highly anticipated book Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Battle for Survival will soon be available.
However, who is he and is he dating anyone? Here is all the information you need to know about Omid Scobie, including information on his career and connections to the royal family.
Who is Omid Scobie and does he have a partner?
Omid Scobie moved to Oxford later in life, having been born in Wales in July 1981.
Sam Mendes, the director of Skyfall, was among the esteemed alumni of the fee-paying Magdalen College School, where he attended.
After that, he attended Cherwell School, a state sixth form, before enrolling in the London College of Communication to study journalism.
In addition to discussing his work, Scobie has been transparent about his love life.
He said in the interview with the Sunday Times this weekend that he is “hopelessly single” but has his French bulldog, Yoshi, for company.
What does Omid Scobie do for a living?
Scobie became a journalist and writer after completing his studies in journalism at the London College of Communication.
Scobie has loved working as a journalist for US Weekly and Heat magazine.
After ten years there, he moved on to become royal editor-at-large at Harpar’s Bazaar.
Apart from this, Scobie hosts the network’s royal podcast, the HeirPod, and contributes to ABC News as a royal expert. She has also frequently featured on Good Morning America.
The biography Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family, written by Scobie and Carolyn Durand, is the work of writing about which he is most recognized. It centers on the married lives of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.
Released by HarperCollins in August 2020, the book sold over 31,000 copies in only five days and peaked at number one on the Sunday Times bestseller list.
A lot of personal information about the Sussexes and their time as working royals is revealed in Finding Freedom, including the start of the rumored conflict between Harry and Prince William, Meghan’s difficulties adjusting to her new life, and claims of racist remarks made.
In a recent High Court case, it was shown that the Sussexes provided brief positive reports through an aide, despite his claims that they did not assist him with his first book.
He maintains that he did not speak with Harry and Meghan directly about the book, and those close to the Sussexes dispute that they are “affiliated” with it.
Dubbed “Meghan’s Cheerleader,” Scobie apparently met the Duchess of Sussex in 2015 at Toronto Fashion Week, prior to her official relationship with Harry.
He claimed that this is why he was unaware of the encounter’s importance.
After Meghan gave him “a big farewell hug” under the “malachite candelabras” at Buckingham Palace in 2020, Scobie published a now-famous account of the Sussexes’ final engagement as working royals.
Only three journalists were invited, including him.
What has Omid Scobie published?
In addition to working with American writer Carolyn Durand to co-author Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family in 2020, Scobie has since moved on to other projects.
On November 28, 2023, his most recent book Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Battle for Survival will be published in the United Kingdom.
It claims to examine the “fight for survival” of the monarchy and the “inside” of the royal family.
In Endgame, Scobie has already made a number of shocking statements, such as implying that King Charles and his eldest son Prince William are at odds.
In Endgame, there are allegations that the Palace misled readers by declaring that Camilla would not become queen in 2020, even though Queen Elizabeth II had expressed her “sincere wish” for her to do so.
According to the book, Princess Kate and Meghan Markle haven’t spoken in four years.
Before the book was published, the author had passages published in the French gossip magazine Paris Match.
But since then, royal enthusiasts have criticized it and called attention to its extensive number of contradictions.
