Prince Harry was ‘kept in the dark’ about Queen’s health in the hours before she died, Harry and Meghan’s biographer Omid Scobie claims in new book
Prince Harry was ‘kept in the dark’ about the Queen’s health in the hours before she died, the royal’s biographer has claimed.
Omid Scobie, who is a close friend of the Duke of Sussex, said Harry and his wife Meghan Markle had ‘no idea’ the Royal Family were preparing for his grandmother’s death last year.
The allegations come amid a deepening rift between Prince Harry and his brother Prince William and their father King Charles following his explosive allegations in his memoir, Spare.
In Endgame, Mr Scobie recounts how the Sussexes had visited the UK for a series of engagements in September 2022 when the palace announced that Queen Elizabeth had been advised by her doctors to rest.
In an extract of the book shared with People, he writes: ‘By the next morning, the Sussexes had no idea that Buckingham Palace was already planning for the Queen’s final hours and the first days of the monarchy’s new era — until the duke’s phone started ringing. An unknown number. He usually ignored those.’

Meghan told her husband to pick up the phone and he accepted the call ‘just before it stopped’, the author wrote.
He continues: ‘Harry hadn’t spoken to his father much that year, but this was not the time for any father-and-son tension. Charles told him he and Camilla were about to leave Dumfries House for Balmoral, where Princess Anne was already by the Queen’s side. He told Harry to make his way to Scotland immediately.’
Harry sent a text message to his brother William asking how he and Kate planned to Scotland and whether they could travel together but got no response, Mr Scobie claims.
