Harry and Meghan's biographer has claimed that allegations about Prince could rupture the family

Prince Andrew has been dubbed a “lingering threat” to the Royal Family, Meghan and Harry's biographer Omid Scobie has claimed.

An upcoming book has claimed that sexual assault allegations about the prince might surface soon that could rock the royals.

Virginia Giuffre, who sued the prince in 2021, alleges that he sexually assaulted her when she was 17.

Giuffre is in the process of writing a memoir and Scobie stated that: “There is always this lingering threat of more to come out.”

Prince Andrew has always denied the allegations.

Scobie's book, entitled Endgame: Inside the Royal Family, will be released next week and takes a “penetrative investigation” into the Royal Family.

However, extracts of the book are being serialised in a French magazine prior to its release.

Scobie has compared Harry and Andrew's living arrangements in the UK.

Whilst Harry has been kicked out of Frogmore Cottage, Andrew is still entitled to lounge around the Royal Lodge estate.

“It’s interesting what’s considered the final blow to see you ostracised from the family," the biographer said.

The book has also claimed that King Charles was left "in tears" at the thought of Prince Andrew's mental health.

One section, translated from French, describes how Prince William was "colder" in his treatment of Prince Andrew, as opposed to Queen Elizabeth II and King Charles.

Scobie wrote: “[King Charles] was in tears because he was afraid for Andrew's mental health.

"Charles leads with his head and his heart. William is colder.

"He wants the job done and he has no problem with casualties along the way."

The royal author suggested that the current Prince of Wales was the person who was able to convince his late grandmother to punish her "favourite son", the Duke of York.

Whereas King Charles was unable to punish his younger brother.

Kensington Palace, Buckingham Palace and Archewell have refused to comment on these claims.
