‘Royal racist’ named in Omid Scobie’s Endgame

0 100


Appearing on Dutch chat show RTL Boulevard, Scobie said: “The book is in several languages, and unfortunately, I do not speak Dutch. But if there are translation errors, I’m sure the publishers will have it under control.

“I wrote and edited the English version,” he added. “There’s never been a version that I’ve produced that has names in it.”

Xander, the publisher of the Dutch version of Endgame, said that sales of the book were on hold “temporarily” over what it called an “error”.

“[We are] temporarily withdrawing the book by Omid Scobie from sale,” the publisher’s statement read. “An error occurred in the Dutch translation and is currently being rectified.”

Scobie’s latest book returns to many of the same royal disagreements and behind-the-scenes back-biting he covered in Finding Freedom, the bombshell biography that sealed his reputation as the unofficial spokesperson for the Sussexes.

The 42-year-old journalist has since tried to distance himself from the couple, insisting they are not sources for his latest book.

In addition to its claims about two members of the royal family making offensive remarks about the skin colour of Prince Archie, Endgame also alleges that King Charles is “inept”, Prince William is “petulant and grudging” and is particularly critical of the Princess of Wales, who, it claims, is terrified of doing anything beyond grinning photo opportunities.

The book reveals that both Charles and Meghan acknowledged that the alleged remark about Archie’s skin colour was not made with malice. Meghan thanked the King for his letter and clarified that she was not accusing the royal family of racism, but rather raising concerns about an unconscious bias.

In an interview with ITV News presenter Tom Bradby earlier this year, Prince Harry denied that he and Meghan ever accused the royal family of racism, arguing that there is a “difference between racism and unconscious bias”.

“Once it’s been acknowledged or pointed out to you as an individual, otherwise an institution, that you have unconscious bias, you therefore have an opportunity to learn and grow from that… otherwise, unconscious bias then moves into the category of racism,” he said.

In the days before its publication, Scobie has acknowledged inconsistencies between the original manuscript and “poorly translated” extracts.

He told BBC News: “It has been hugely frustrating watching news sites run stories based on contextless and poorly translated snippets from a French serialisation of Endgame.”

He claimed that some extracts were inaccurately reported in other countries, leaving readers “to believe that this is how the material, much of which is almost unrecognisable from the original English manuscript, appears in the book”.
