“Xander Uitgevers is forced to temporarily withdraw the book from the market,” the publisher confirmed to us. “Some passages have been the subject of discussion and may not have been presented correctly.” Xander Uitgevers told the British news site ‘Sky News’ about an “error in the Dutch translation, which is currently being corrected”.
It is currently not possible to say with certainty which passages in the book were affected by the error. ‘The Mirror’ reported that the Dutch translation would have revealed which member of the royal family had made racist comments towards Archie, the son of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Meghan talked about the incident two years ago during the much-discussed interview with Oprah Winfrey.
However, Scobie did not mention the name of that person anywhere in the book, the writer told the Dutch ‘RTL Boulevard’ on Tuesday. “The book is published in different languages and unfortunately I don’t speak Dutch. But if there are translation errors, the publisher will correct them,” it said. “I wrote the English version. There was no version of me where names were mentioned.”
