"The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him", a spokesperson for Kensington Palace told U.S. showbiz publication Us.
The perils of sharing a stage with socialist idealists at this particular moment in world history hit Prince Harry this weekend, as he was railroaded into publicly observing a silent tribute in remembrance of recently deceased Cuban leader Fidel Castro. Of all people, Prince William and Prince Harry have good reason to avoid the paparazzi.
Prince William is protective of his brother and is anxious how his statement will affect his relationship with Suits actress Meghan Markle, or any future relationships he may have.
An insider has told that Harry's statements would not be issued without taking it first to Prince William.
Articles subsequently surfaced in the media saying Prince William was unhappy about his younger brother releasing the statement, however a spokesperson for Kensington Palace has now denied those reports.
The statement said Prince Harry now fears for Markle's safety after members of the press doorstepped her and her family and attempted to illegally gain access to her property.
Would it have been nice to read something along the lines of "Prince William adores Meghan Markle and tries to watch Suits online whenever he can to keep up with her work and hopes she is soon part of the family?" So when the news broke that Harry and Markle were dating, we never expected to ever receive a confirmation on their relationship from the palace. Prince Harry considers Kate as one of his closest friends and that he often trusts the Duchess for her pieces of advice.
"His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment".
Involving Harry in the tribute was widely seen as deeply unfair, and a breach of the protocol that royal visitors should not be press-ganaged into political activity.
