Prince William and his brother, Prince Harry issued a joint statement on Monday rebuking an unnamed newspaper report that they accused of publishing false claims about their relationship.

A statement circulated to multiple news outlets accused the unnamed outlet of using “inflammatory language” to describe a rift between the two men amid Harry and wife Meghan Markle’s efforts to step back from their royal duties.

The article goes on to state the following:

“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,” the statement read, using the two princes’ royal titles.

The  Times of London’s had published a report that stated, “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex regard themselves as having been pushed away from the royal family by the “bullying” attitude of his brother the Duke of Cambridge.”

In their joint statement, William and Harry denied the “bullying” claim, saying in their tweet, “For brothers who care so deeply around the issues surrounding mental health, the use of inflammatory language in this way is offensive and potentially harmful.”
