Piers Morgan has branded Endgame author Omid Scobie a "liar" over anecdotes about Morgan's apparent relationship with Queen Camilla in the new tell-all book about the Royal Family.

Scobie published Endgame on Tuesday which shares a number of explosive claims about the royals, including that King Charles is apparently angry at Prince William upstaging him, and further claims that William believes Harry has been "brainwashed" by therapists.

Journalist Scobie has been accused of being a mouthpiece for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle because of his take on events being sympathetic to them, and in Monday's episode of Piers Morgan Uncensored the broadcaster hit out at him over so-called "lies" in the book.

What, how and why?

London, UK. 13th Feb, 2018. Prince Harry Duke of Sussex and Meghan Markle Duchess of Sussex's mouthpiece Omid Scobie will release his book Endgame in the UK on the 28th of November. The book is said to be a cruel attack on the Princess of Wales, branding her cold and claims Kate Middleton Princess of Wales never had interest in being friends with her sister-in-law and claims she hasn't spoken to Meghan since 2019.

During his talk show, Morgan said: "He’s a liar, and I’ll tell you how I know he’s a liar because he writes a bit about me in the book."

He went on: "On one occasion he states as a fact that I had regular phone conversations with Queen Camilla. For the record, I have never had a single phone conversation with Queen Camilla.

"Now he says as a fact in this book, that we had regular phone conversations, that, I personally know, is an absolute lie."

Morgan quit his former role on Good Morning Britain after an on-air row about his views on Meghan Markle, which saw him storm out of the studio.

He said on Monday: "(Scobie) also says that when I said on Good Morning Britain that Meghan Markle was Princess Pinocchio on air, that apparently she reached out to me - Queen Camilla - to thank me for standing up for The Firm.

"I had zero with Queen Camilla around that time at all… Nothing. Nothing. I did however, as I said publicly at the time, have conversations with several other members of the Royal Family and it wasn’t Queen Camilla."

Morgan continued: "So I know personally, just from the little bits about me - are completely untrue. They are lies. So why should I believe any of this stuff?"

The broadcaster also questioned claims in Scobie's book about letters between the King and Meghan that reportedly mentioned "two members of the royal household" expressing concerns about the skin colour of Harry and Meghan's son Archie before he was born.

Morgan argued that access to the letters couldn't have come from the King and suggested it was via Meghan or her friends.

He said: "It’s two things, this book, one it’s blatant lies and secondly it’s stuff he could only have got from Meghan Markle... That racism allegation, I’ve said this to you before, never appeared in Harry's book. It has never been mentioned again. It’s like it never happened. By the way, as I said at the time, I don't believe this happened."

Harry and Meghan have denied in the past that they co-operated with Scobie on his 2020 book Finding Freedom, but Meghan later admitted in the High Court that she had told an aide that they could brief Scobie and his co-author Carolyn Durand.

Yahoo News has reached out to Omid Scobie for comment.

Piers Morgan Uncensored airs Monday to Thursday on TalkTV at 8pm.
