Endgame, Omid Scobie’s latest book, is rumored to be a rehash of the royal family’s drama with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Being a co-author of the book Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie is a well-known British journalist and writer focusing on the British royal family.

In addition to the project reminding the world and Windsors of the disagreements between the Royal family and Meghan and Harry, a conservative member of Parliament is pressuring His Majesty to take away the official titles of his youngest child and his wife.

Even though Meghan Markle and Prince Harry departed the United Kingdom in 2020, Endgame has made some British people furious and made them reevaluate the Sussexes’ position.

“I believe that Parliament and the Privy Council should consider a nuclear option… If someone doesn’t want to be royal, that is a decision we respect, but they should not keep the titles and privileges if they trash an institution that plays an important part in our nation’s life,” Bob Seely stated while hoping to force King Charles’ hand.

An extremely clear identification of a senior royal and a less clear reference to a second name can be found in the first Dutch-language edition of Omid Scobie’s Endgame, Eindstrijd.

In the book, Prince Archie, who was not born by then, has his skin complexion criticized by supposed royal racists who are now alleged to be King Charles and Kate Middleton.

But, with its release day devolving into chaos, the publisher’s managing director, Anke Roelen, stated that “an error occurred in the Dutch translation and is currently being rectified, and as a result, the publishing house, Xander Uitgevers, is “temporarily withdrawing the book.”

Endgame’s naming in the Dutch translation has been called out as an extremely embarrassing error, and the book has been hurriedly removed from the shelves. However, how could that have occurred?

The Dutch translation of The Endgame led to its removal from Dutch bookshelves. Despite Omid Scobie’s admission on Thursday’s This Morning segment on ITV that he had “never submitted a book that had their names in it.”

Even though Endgame has slandered certain prominent members of the Royal Family, Buckingham Palace has not responded to what has been published in the Dutch version of the book.

Harper Collins, the English-language publisher, has not responded either. However, according to some royal experts, King Charles is also tired of the negative coverage.
