Prince William, Prince Harry release joint statement denying 'bullying' reports

WATCH: Queen holds emergency meeting over Prince Harry and Meghan's royal exit

Prince William and Prince Harry released a joint statement Monday after rumours about William “bullying” Harry and Meghan Markle did the rounds online.

The statement read: “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.

“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 message comes after the Times claimed Will and Kate wanted to “push” Harry and Meghan away.

The Queen is thought to be holding a meeting at Sandringham on Monday to discuss an exit plan for Harry and Markle alongside Prince William and Prince Charles.

Prince Philip is thought to be “livid” and will not be attending the meeting.

Meghan is currently in Canada with baby Archie but is said to be dialling in at around 6 a.m. PT.

Last Wednesday, the palace was rocked with the surprise announcement from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex that they would no longer be senior members of the firm, would become financially independent and would be splitting their time between both sides of the pond.
