- Prince Harry, 35, and Meghan Markle’s, 39, biographer shared outspoken tweet
- Omid Scobie wrote the Sussexes’ recent explosive biography Finding Freedom

The author of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s explosive new biography has slammed critics of the Duchess as ‘morons’ and said he would ‘love’ to see them focus on ‘Prince Andrew’s horrendous mess’.
Omid Scobie, who is the co-author of the bombshell biography Finding Freedom, which offers a window into the Sussexes’ life during their time as senior royals, tweeted criticism of the Duke of York, 61, earlier this week.
In a tweet which quickly went viral, he wrote: ‘Would love to occasionally see the tears and energy these morons spend on a non-working royal used on Prince Andrew’s horrendous mess. Or is there nothing worse than a woman of colour with a voice?’
Prince Andrew withdrew from public service after he was widely criticised for failing to show remorse for his friendship with Epstein, and little empathy with the sex offender’s alleged victims.

Omid’s controversial book Finding Freedom was released earlier this month and raised eyebrows for its gushing praise and intimate knowledge of the Duke, and Duchess.
The book lays bare the rift between Prince Harry, Meghan Markle and the rest of the royal family.
It addresses the alleged rift between brothers Harry and William, 38 as well as the relationship between their wives.
The Duke and Duchess claim they were not interviewed for the book, which provides a high level of personal detail and a dramatic account of the events leading up to the Sussexes’ departure from royal life.

Mr Scobie has given several high-profile interviews to publicise the book in the week since its release.
And writing in Vanity Fair, royal expert Katie Nicholl said the authors may be the ‘only winners’ from the publication of Finding Freedom.
The book had reached number one on Amazon’s Top 10 New York bestseller in 24 hours list on the day of its release for pre-order.
The biographer’s latest comments come after the Duchess made a bold plea to women across the US to take part in the upcoming presidential election.
Prince Andrew has stayed largely out of public after stepping back from royal duties last year following his disastrous Newsnight interview about his relationship with Jeffrey Epstein
The 39-year-old made her stance on the 2020 presidential race incredibly clear last week when she addressed viewers at the When All Women Vote Couch Party – an online event organized by non-profit organization When We All Vote, which was founded by ‘her friend’ Michelle Obama.
Meghan’s appearance at the summit is the latest in a series of interviews and speeches that the Duchess has made in an attempt to become more politically active – having reportedly grown ‘frustrated’ at her inability to get involved in politics while she was working as a senior royal.
Earlier this month, she confirmed her plans to vote in the 2020 election, while speaking to Marie Claire about the importance of voting.
The former Suits star’s decision to speak out about her political plans marks yet another major break from royal tradition for Meghan; traditionally members of the monarchy are expected to remain politically neutral, and therefore do not speak out about their opinions in public.

Meanwhile Prince Andrew has remained out of the public spotlight since withdrawing from royal duty at the end of last year.
The royal stepped down in November following his disastrous BBC Newsnight interview, which had led to criticism of a lack of empathy for Epstein’s victims and a lack of remorse over his friendship with the convicted sex offender.
The Duke of York even remained out of photographs released for Princess Beatrice’s wedding to Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.
Images released from the intimate ceremony last month showed the Queen’s granddaughter and new husband with the Queen and grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh but, notably, Prince Andrew did not appear in the snaps.

In recent days, his sex accuser Virginia Roberts hit the headlines as she claimed the Duke played a ‘guessing game,’ with Ghislaine Maxwell about her age when she was 17-years-old before comparing her to his daughters.
Virginia Giuffre, the accuser has spoken out in a documentary series, Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, claiming she met the Queen’s second son in London, describing him as an ‘abuser,’ and ‘not the prince from the fairy tale stories you read’.
Ms Giuffre, who says she was trafficked by paedophile financier Epstein, alleges the duke had sex with her on three separate occasions, including when she was 17, still a minor under some US states’ law, although not in the UK where the age of consent is 16
Andrew has categorically denied he has had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Ms Giuffre.
