The Dutch edition was published on November 28 and reportedly included the names of individuals, which was not the case in the original English version. The error pertains to the description of the racism controversy that arose after Prince Harry and Meghan’s interview with Oprah Winfrey. The publisher Xander Uitgevers said it was “temporarily withdrawing the book”, entitled “Eindstrijd” in the Dutch version.

The Dutch version seemingly implicated a Royal Family member inquiring about the skin color of their baby, while the English edition did not disclose names for legal reasons. The book, titled “Endgame: Inside the Royal Family and the Monarchy’s Fight for Survival”, has been critical of the Royal Family, particularly King Charles III and his son, William. It portrays William as a “power-hungry heir to the throne” and criticizes the monarchy for outdated views on race, class, and money.
