William and Harry Issue Rare Joint Statement to Deny ‘Bullying’ Caused Rift

Prince William and Prince Harry issued a rare joint statement to shoot down a report about their rift.

“Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a U.K. newspaper today speculating about the relationship between the Duke of Sussex and the Duke of Cambridge,” the princes’ spokespeople told CNN on Monday, January 13. “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 response came shortly after The Times of London published a story that claimed William’s “bullying attitude” led Harry and his wife, Duchess Meghan, to step down from the British royal family. The report further alleged that William, 37, was not welcoming toward Meghan, 38, before her May 2018 wedding to Harry, 35, and that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were “constantly being told their place.”
