Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been urged to speak out against the "royal racism" claims against King Charles III and Kate, Princess of Wales, in the Dutch edition of Omid Scobie's Endgame.

"For the couple that talked about 'death by a thousand no comments', the silence at this point is deafening," an anonymous source observed about the lack of a reply from Montecito.

There are some in the media who think Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are on a quest to destroy the British monarchy.

This insight comes amid the scandal that has erupted over the "translation error" that named the monarch and future Queen Consort as "two royal racists" who allegedly questioned Prince Archie's skin color.

"As a translator, I translate what is in front of me. The names of the royals were there in black and white. I did not add them," the translator of the Dutch version, Saskia Peeters, spilled.

On the flip side, sources close to Harry and Meghan actually are speaking out to remind everyone that neither of the royal rebels intended to ever name the singular "royal racist" from their 2021 Oprah Winfrey interview. In the initial response to that explosive primetime sit-down, the late Queen Elizabeth II's press office stated: "The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately," before observing: "Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much-loved family members."

Both King Charles III and the Princess of Wales have remained silent despite the allegations against them in 'Endgame.'

Since the controversy broke, neither the King and Princess of Wales nor any member of the royal family, has addressed the accusation. Charles III has been in Dubai, where he is attending the COP28 climate change summit. Upon his arrival, his only unscripted remarks to be caught on audio were to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu of Nigeria.

"I'm all right, very much, just about. Having had a rather ancient birthday recently, [and I am] recovering from the shock of that," His Majesty stated when asked by the president how he was doing.

The Princess of Wales attended the Royal Variety Performance in London with Prince William on Thursday, November 30. Reporters repeatedly asked the royal couple to reply to the claims and both remained silent and ignored the journalists. The King also remained mum when he came into contact with reporters asking him to comment.

"[It would] probably be best if a statement was put out clearing this up once and for all, but King Charles III and Prince William had 'maintained a dignified silence' through the Oprah Winfrey interview in March 2021, the Netflix documentary last December, Harry's memoir Spare in January and now this, and I can't see the policy changing," royal expert Phil Dampier told an outlet.

The same approach seems to apply to Harry and Meghan's PR team.
