The new royal book has caused widespread controversy in The Netherlands

Omid Scobie's royal book Endgame has been slashed in price by 50 percent just one day after its release, as the "royal racism" storm has continued.

The book, which was released on Tuesday, includes several claims about Meghan Markle, Princess Kate, and even Sophie, Duchess of Edinburgh.

Now the hardcover version of the book is on sale for 50 percent off on Amazon, down from £22 to just £11.

The discount comes as the author has had to deny responsibility for a translation error in The Netherlands.

The biggest scandal that has come out of Endgame so far was the Dutch translation appearing to name the two "royal racists".

These two members of the Royal Family allegedly questioned the future skin colour of Prince Archie whilst the Duchess of Sussex was pregnant.

The book was subsequently pulled from shelves across The Netherlands, with the correct translation planning to reappear in bookshops on December 8.

Scobie originally said in an interview with Good Morning America that he could not name the individuals concerned due to UK libel laws.

In a statement, the Dutch publisher told GB News: "The rectified edition of Eindstrijd by Omid Scobie will be in bookstores on Friday, December 8.

"Xander Uitgevers temporarily removed the book from sale, due to an error that occurred in the Dutch edition."

Omid Scobie sat down for an interview with the Dutch media to clarify the situation.

He said: "The book is available in a number of languages and unfortunately I can't speak Dutch so I haven't seen the copy for myself.

"But if there have been any translation errors, I'm sure the publishers have got it under control.

"For me, I edited and wrote the English version.

"There's never been a version that I've produced that has names in it," he told RTL Boulevard.
