In a significant shift, Dutch journalist Rick Evers has revealed that Omid Scobie’s book “Endgame” has undergone numerous revisions in its latest Dutch release. Evers used a social media platform to demonstrate the extensive changes made to this controversial book, contrasting the updated edition with the original, which has now been pulled from shelves in the Netherlands.
The revised version of “Endgame” notably omits the names of the royal family members who were previously alleged to have expressed concerns about the skin color of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s son, Archie. This alteration marks a departure from the book’s earlier stance, which had sparked widespread debate.
Furthermore, the language in the book has been adjusted to show more respect towards the Royal Family, particularly softening its tone in sections relating to Prince William.
Scobie, who had previously denied naming the individuals in his book, has been seen for the first time since the rekindled controversy over the alleged racist remarks within the Royal Family. He was photographed looking distressed at Chateau Marmont in West Hollywood, a renowned celebrity gathering place, as he got into a car.
Scobie has implied that the publication of the contentious material was a result of an error by the publisher. He admitted that an ‘early and uncleared text’ of his book was sent for translation, with the expectation that it would be updated to a final version. Contradicting Scobie’s claim, the publisher stated MailOnline, describing his comments as ‘factually incorrect’.
Highlighting the alterations in the Dutch translation of “Endgame,” Evers pointed out on social media that in the original version of the book, King Charles III was named as one of the royals who allegedly questioned Archie’s skin color before his birth. The updated edition, however, removes any mention of the Monarch. Instead, it cites ‘strict British laws’ as the reason for not disclosing the identities of the individuals involved.
