Prince William and Prince Harry have released a joint statement dismissing a “false story” that a rift between the brothers was allegedly caused by William’s “bullying.”
A spokesperson for Prince William and Prince Harry said: “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.”
The brothers spoke out following a story in the Times of London, reporting that the Prince Harry and Meghan, felt “pushed away” by Prince William’s “bullying attitude.”
Following the Sussexes Royal tour of Africa, Harry addressed the rumors of rift between him and William, saying: “inevitably stuff happens” but that there was little truth to the speculation.
“The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers, you know, you have good days, you have bad days.”
He also talked about how his important his older brother is in his life. “We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him as I know he will always be there for me. We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we are so busy but I love him dearly.”
Today, the Queen will be joined by Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry, at Sandringham to come up with a workable solution for the Sussexes future.
Duchess Meghan won’t attend the emergency summit, having returned to Canada to be with their baby boy Archie. Still, it is expected that she’s call in to the meeting from Canada.
This will mark the first time the senior royals have gathered since Harry and Meghan announced their decision about stepping back from royal duties.
