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.
