Prince William and Prince Harry have both come out on a united front to debunk the statement that there is a rift between them.
It should be noted that Western media have been speculating that the bond between the brothers broke, especially when the Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced that they will be stepping back from their royal duties, the Sun UK reports.
In the joint statement, the two brothers threw away the claims as offensive, saying they do not understand while such false stories lingered despite the fact that they had clearly denied them.
They said that they consider the words used in some of those claims as very “offensive and potentially harmful”.

The joint statement is coming ahead of crisis management talks that will be held by the Queen at Sandringham.
"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," they said.
Another thing worthy of note is that the new joint statement came days after Daily Mail reported that Prince William, according to their source, said he could no longer continue to support his brother anymore.
In the earlier reported story, the source close to the same media also said that the Duke of Cambridge is really sad things have really broken down between him and his brother.
