  • Prince William and Prince Harry have released a joint statement via their spokesperson about their relationship.
  • The brothers are unhappy about a ‘false story’ in a UK newspaper.

Welp, Prince Harry and Prince William are finally speaking out. Kinda. Amid news that the royal family is gathering for a summit to figure out what TF to do about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle stepping down from their senior roles, a spokesperson for the princes has issued a joint statement:

‘Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between The Duke of Sussex and The Duke of Cambridge. For brothers who care so deeply about the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful.’

It’s unclear what story the statement is referring to, but royal reporter Rebecca English tweeted, ‘It’s clear from my conversations this morning that BOTH brothers are deeply, deeply unhappy about suggestions that Harry feels he has been ‘bullied’ out of the Royal Family by William.’

As a reminder, Harry and Meghan announced their intention to move to North America part-time and seek financial independence last week, which reportedly came as a huge surprise to the royals. In their statement, the couple wrote, ‘We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen.’ They added, ‘We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages.’
