Prince Harry denounces a “baseless” story that opposes him to his country

Prince Harry is closing a recent report which accused him of telling a friend ‘These Brits need to learn a lesson’ ahead of the couple’s explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey last year.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s global press secretary told HuffPost that “this is an unsubstantiated blockbuster story disguised as journalism.”

“This story is riddled with inaccuracies, not the least of which is a quote wrongly attributed to Prince Harry,” the spokesperson said on Sunday.

“To accuse a man who has spent 10 years serving his country of wanting to teach that same country a lesson is not just an attempt at distraction, but an unfortunate and predictable tabloid strategy,” she added. “Pitting him against his country is shameful and manipulative, especially when Prince Harry has never spoken ill of the British public.”

The Sun did not immediately respond to a request for additional comment from HuffPost.

The story and answer follows Prince William and Kate Middleton’s recent three-day tour of Boston, where they were for the Earthshot Prize Awards.

With the tour almost coinciding with the release of Harry and Meghan Markle’s upcoming Netflix docuseries, a Palace source ahead of the trip said the Prince and Princess of Wales would not be “distracted by other things”.

A trailer for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-part series with the streaming giant was released on day two of William and Kate’s royal tour, leading many to question the timing of his exit.

In the teaser, a voice asks Harry, “Why did you want to do this documentary?”

“No one sees what is happening behind closed doors,” replies the prince. “I had to do everything I could to protect my family.”

“When the stakes are so high, doesn’t it make sense to hear our story from us?” Meghan adds later in the clip.
