Prince Harry and William stand together against false claims

Prince Harry and William stand together against false claims

Prince Harry and Prince William have slammed a UK newspaper in a joint statement that suggests that bullying is the reason for the Sussex’s departure from the Royal Family.

A royal source spoke to the UK press that the Duke of Sussex felt “pushed out of the royal family” by his big brother, but the brothers have fought back, saying that the claim is “offensive”.

The brothers put out a joint statement saying the following, according to The Sun:

“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 source had told The Times that the decision for the Sussex’s to leave was driven by Meghan.

"She wants to leave ... She thinks: 'It's not working for me'.

"Harry is under intense pressure to choose. It is sad. He loves the Queen. He loves this country.

"He loves all his military stuff and I think it will genuinely break his heart to leave.

"I don't think that's what he really wants. I think they want some halfway house."
