A copy of the Dutch version of Omid Scobie's Endgame will go up for auction after the book was pulled off of shelves following its incorrect translation that named two royals for allegedly being racist.

The copy is expected to get attention especially after it was removed from shelves after it emerged that the translated version caused shockwaves for name dropping two royals who allegedly showed concern over Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's son Archie's skin colour. 

Evers took to X, formerly known as Twitter, to announce that bidding will start on Wednesday, elaborating that the copy was likely to be the last of its kind as the reprinted and re-edited version would not include the names.
