Prince William and Prince Harry issue joint statement denying 'bullying claims'

Prince William and Prince Harry have issued a joint statement denying 'bullying claims'. It comes as reports suggested Harry had felt forced out of the Royal Family.

The pair said the speculation about their relationship was "offensive" and "potentially harmful".

The extremely strong statement was released this morning by Buckingham Palace - just hours before crunch talks at Sandringham.

It said on behalf of the brothers: “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.”
