Prince William issues a statement to address Prince Harry’s relationship with Suits actress Meghan Markle. As it turns out, the Duke of Cambridge stands by his brother’s decision to publicly confirm their relationship in order to ask for privacy in return.
Previously, Kensington Palace released a statement on behalf of Prince Harry to confirm his relationship with Meghan Markle, who is suffering from threats and bashes from internet trolls. They also asked for respect and privacy for the relationship.
It was a bold move for the palace as they are not known to address the personal lives of the royal princes publicly; thus many assumed that Prince William is not onboard with his brother’s announcement of his relationship.
Prince William Stands By Prince Harry’s Decision
In response, the Kensington Palace issued another statement to address the rumor. It was stated that the Duke of Cambridge actually supports Prince Harry’s decision to make a move in protecting the people who are “closest to him.” He also understands the “situation concerning privacy” for both Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
Moreover, Prince William and Prince Harry, according to the issued statement, always consults one another when it comes to releasing any statement to the public, especially when it concerns their personal lives. In fact, they had a “heart-to-heart conversation” prior to the statement’s release of the “public plea” to stop Internet trolls with their “abuse” to Meghan Markle. Along with that is the confirmation of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as “an item.”
The royal source adds that Prince William is as “alarmed as anyone” on what Meghan is experiencing from the social media backlash.
Prince William also shares the same media advisers with Prince Harry, therefore, the brothers are always informed and consulted on matters that can affect the two of them.
