Gatsby react component - Minified React error #31 in preview

I have a site I am working on to learn React in combination with Gatsby and Netlify CMS. When I now want to use the preview for a page in Netlify CMS, I get a Minified React error #31 (React Error Decoder). The page rendering with Gatsby works as expected.

The react component looks like this:

import React from 'react'
import PropTypes from 'prop-types'
import Content from '../components/Content'

export const HTMLPageTemplate = ({ title, content, contentComponent }) => {
  const PageContent = contentComponent || Content

  return (
    <div className="container content-container">
      <PageContent className="content" content={content} />

HTMLPageTemplate.propTypes = {
  title: PropTypes.string.isRequired,
  content: PropTypes.string,
  contentComponent: PropTypes.func,

The Content component looks like this:

import * as React from 'react'
import PropTypes from 'prop-types'

export const HTMLContent = ({ content, className }) => (
  <div className={className} dangerouslySetInnerHTML={{ __html: content }} />

const Content = ({ content, className }) => ({ content })

Content.propTypes = {
  content: PropTypes.node,
  className: PropTypes.string,

HTMLContent.propTypes = Content.propTypes

export default Content

The react preview template for Netlify CMS looks like this:

import React from 'react'
import PropTypes from 'prop-types'
import { HTMLPageTemplate } from '../../templates/html-page'

const HTMLPagePreview = ({ entry, widgetFor }) => {
  return (
      title={entry.getIn(['data', 'title'])}

HTMLPagePreview.propTypes = {
  entry: PropTypes.shape({
    getIn: PropTypes.func,
  widgetFor: PropTypes.func,

export default HTMLPagePreview

and is registered in the cms.js with CMS.registerPreviewTemplate('html', HTMLPagePreview).

This is a screenshot of Netlify CMS with the logged object in the console.

The printed object for content is as followed:

    "key": "body",
    "ref": null,
    "props": {
        "field": {
            "label": "Body",

                "path": "/test/",
                "body": "\nDies ist ein Testbeitrag\n"

            "label": null,
            "updatedOn": "",
            "i18n": {},

        "fieldsMetaData": {}
    "_owner": null

The code is mostly the same as for the blog page in netlify-templates/gatsby-starter-netlify-cms, where it works without any error (and the logged object is equal to the one in my project). What am I doing wrong?
