As more details from Omid Scobie's "Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy's Fight for Survival" emerge, the royal family's intricate maneuvers and strategic diversions are coming to light. Scobie, the author and royal expert, delved into the alleged affair between Prince William and Rose Hanbury, dismissing it as speculative tabloid fodder. He highlighted how the royals redirected focus onto Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to deflect attention from the accusations against William regarding infidelity to Kate Middleton.

Scobie explained to Entertainment Tonight that unaddressed rumors tend to circulate widely, emphasizing that the lack of a response allowed such rumors to persist despite their baselessness. Reports of William's alleged affair surfaced in 2019, linking Kate's distancing from her husband at an event to these claims. Hanbury, a close friend of Kate's, remained connected to the royal circle and attended recent royal events.

In his book, Scobie cautiously navigates the allegations involving William, Kate, and their relationship with Rose Hanbury. He clarified that while rumors persist, there's no concrete evidence supporting the alleged affair.

More intriguingly, Scobie pointed out how Buckingham Palace indirectly handled the situation. He suggested that the Firm utilized Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's controversies as a distraction from William and Hanbury's alleged affair. The palace's apparent strategy to overshadow one scandal with another reveals a deeper approach to crisis management within the royal circle.

For instance, the timing of Archie's birth in May 2019 was followed by swirling narratives regarding his skin color and the couple's resignation from senior royal duties a month later. These events dominated headlines, overshadowing any discourse on William and Hanbury's rumored relationship.

Scobie's exploration hints at the palace's willingness to navigate controversies by steering attention away from damaging rumors, even if it meant leveraging other royal members' personal lives.
