William & Kate didn't let 'racism' controversy ruin their Royal Variety performance.
Prince William and Kate arrived to attend the Royal Variety Performance at the Royal Albert Hall in London, despite the ongoing controversy surrounding Omid Scobie's book, Endgame. The book had sparked controversy after a Dutch version suggested two senior royals accused of making allegedly racist remarks were Kate and Charles.

The book was quickly pulled from the shelves in the Netherlands, and the author later distanced himself from the accusations, claiming the names were the result of a translation error, and denied it being part of a ‘publicity stunt’.

Yet despite the ongoing controversy, the Prince and Princess of Wales appeared ‘relaxed’ at the Royal Variety Performance last night, maintaining a ‘business as usual’ attitude as they mingled with guests and enjoyed the show. Paloma Faith said William and Kate seemed calm when they spoke with her after she sang at the Royal Albert Hall, and Chinese pianist Lang Lang also said Kate told daughter Charlotte she would be able to play like him if she keeps practising piano.

The royal couple ignored the accusations as they chatted with guests and performers, and sources claim that while King Charles is determined to focus on important state business in Dubai, he is privately considering how, if at all, the Palace should respond. It is unlikely the Royals would actually sue Scobie over the claims, but a source suggested that the palace ‘is considering all options open to them.’

When asked by Nigeria’s President Bola Ahmed Tinubu how he was during the Cop28 summit on Thursday, the monarch replied: ‘I’m all right very much, just about’. King Charles III is yet to publicly acknowledge the accusations.

Speaking to Victoria Derbyshire on BBC Two’s Newsnight last night, Mr Scobie swore ‘on his family’s life’ that he did not include the names in his manuscript. He said it was ‘upsetting’ and denied claims the mix-up was part of a ‘publicity stunt’ ahead of the book’s release.

The names of the royals were initially revealed by Piers Morgan, who announced their identities on his TalkTV show and later called Scobie a ‘lickspittle liar’ for denying the allegations against him. Buckingham Palace has been reached for comment.
