A publication had reported that Harry’s recent decision to step away from the royal family alongside his wife Meghan Markle was down to a “bullying attitude”.
However, a statement released on behalf of the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge this morning fiercely denied these allegations.
Ahead of a face-to-face conversation between William, Harry, the Queen and their father Prince Charles set to take place at Sandringham today, reports suggested that William spoke of his rumoured “rift” with his brother.
According to the Sunday Times, William said: “I’ve put my arm around my brother all our lives and I can’t do that any more – we’re separate entities.
“I’m sad about that. All we can do, and all I can do is try and support them and hope that the time comes when we’re all singing from the same page.
Last year, in an ITV documentary following his royal tour of South Africa with his wife, the Duke of Sussex spoke of his relationship with his brother, saying they were on “different paths”.
“Part of this role and part of this job and this family being under the pressure that it’s under… stuff happens,” Harry said.”But look we’re brothers. We’ll always be brothers.”
He continued: “We’re certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and as I know he’ll always be there for me…
“We don’t see each other as much as we used to because we’re so busy but I love him dearly.
“The majority of the stuff is created out of nothing but as brothers it’s just as I said, you have good days, you have bad days,” Harry added.
