King Charles is yet to make a public statement about Endgame

The Royal Family has been urged to avoid "giving credibility" to the new bombshell book by Omid Scobie, a royal commentator exclusively told GB News.

King Charles and the wider Royal Family have not yet commented on the claims made by the author in his new book, Endgame, which was released on November 28.

Described by its publishers as a "penetrative investigation" into the Royal Family, the book has sent shockwaves across the world with its many statements about the royals.

Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal author who spoke exclusively to GB News, has suggested that the "silence" from Buckingham Palace about Endgame could backfire on the royals.

He claimed: "The Royal Family has a lot to handle at the moment.

"There were unprecedented comments in the book about Catherine, whether it's 'Katie Keen' or 'Stepford-like royal wife', this sort of thing.

"According to Scobie, the monarchy is likely to 'decline' under Charles, and then William is described as 'ambitious' and so forth."

The commentator explained why the Royal Family may be undecided whether or not to take further action.

He explained: "The Palace could look at legal action, but the problem is it highlights the danger of being the world's most high-profile Royal Family.

"The problem with it? Well, if you don't do anything, it gives credibility to what you allow out.

"And if you do make a statement, it gives good publicity to it."

The Royal Family have made a few appearances since Endgame's release on November 28.
