Harry is ‘defector’ from royal family

Prince Harry’s memoir “Spare” included bombshell claims against his estranged brother Prince William — which only worsened their rift.

And according to author Omid Scobie, “absolutely nothing has changed” between the two men since its January release.

Within the 400-page opus, Harry called William his “arch-nemesis” and claimed the Duke of Cambridge, 41, physically attacked him over an argument about Meghan Markle.

Omid Scobie, who is set to drop his new book “Endgame” on Nov. 26, told People that Harry’s memoir was his “last attempt at telling his family how he’s felt for years.”

“Clearly there’s never been an open enough forum to have these conversations or share these feelings,” he shared.

The Prince of Wales and Harry, 39, have had a fractured relationship since the latter moved to Montecito, Calif. in 2020 with the “Suits” alum, 42.

Scobie described his writing process for “Endgame,” saying: “I was talking to a source quite early on in the process, and they called Harry a ‘defector’ and said that was William’s view.”

“These were two men who once upon a time were firmly aligned in their outlook. One of them had to move on to also protect the crown,” the “Finding Freedom” author added.

He then noted that “in the eyes of some within the institution, Harry is a threat to the crown.”

“His freedom to exert his own thinking outside of the confines of the institution has made him the enemy,” Scobie continued. “There’s no going back” to the warm relationship Harry and William once had before their feud.

Earlier this year, royal biographer Tom Bower alleged that a truce between the Invictus Games founder and William is highly unlikely.

He told OK! that Harry “can’t come back” to the Firm because he has “caused so much damage to the family.”

“I think Harry’s offer will ultimately be rejected. I doubt William and Kate [Middleton] can forgive Harry,” he explained.

Additionally, a source claimed to the publication that Harry called William recently in an attempt to end their war. William was left “stunned” and didn’t know how to respond.

“The concern now is that if he does return, he could well damage it even further,” Bower said.

Harry and Meghan were not in attendance to celebrate King Charles’ 75th birthday on Tuesday, while William and Kate were photographed leaving a lavish party well past midnight. Despite speculation that Harry refused to fly in for the occasion, his rep said that he wasn’t even sent an invite.
