Prince William Refutes Reports That He Believed Prince Harry’s Statement Was Ill-Advised
As we reported this weekend, some media outlets published reports that Prince William felt his brother’s public statement about rumored girlfriend Meghan Markle was ill-advised and only added more fuel to the fire with all the speculation that was already goin on… BUT Prince William himself is denying those rumors.
“The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him,” a spokesperson for Kensington Palace told Us.
Adds a Palace aide: “A statement like this would not have been released with The Duke first being consulted.”
The brothers share the same media advisers, meaning that they are both consulted on anything that might affect them both.
We already knew Prince William was 100% aware of Prince Harry’s intent to release the statement and that he’d read it ahead of time but it’s great to hear that he was on the same page as his brother.
A source told Us that Harry ultimately decided to speak out because of the “level of harassment and scale of character assassination” that Markle had to endure since news of their relationship first broke in late October.
“With the racial undertones and the harassment against her family, Harry felt it was not acceptable for him to say nothing,” the source added. “This isn’t about speculation about their relationship. … This is not all media.”
Don’t know about y’all but we are glad Harry spoke up and that William reached out to squash the rumors. Looks like everybody is eager to make sure Meghan is happy with the Royal Family. We are loving that!
