Prince Harry is meeting with Prince William, Prince Charles, and the Queen at Sandringham to "talk things through" about his and Meghan's decision to step back from their positions as senior members of the royal family.
But first, William and Harry felt the need to set the record straight about a story in a UK publication today. The royal brothers issued a strongly worded statement denying the suggestion that William had bullied the Sussexes:
“Despite clear denials, a false story ran in a UK newspaper today speculating about the relationship between The Duke of Sussex & The Duke of Cambridge,” said spokespeople for the Duke of Susssex 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 statement was released following the publication of a story in the Times today, which suggested that William had a "bullying attitude."
In the days after Meghan and Harry's shocking announcement, teams at Buckingham Palace, Clarence House, and Kensington Palace have been working "at pace" with the Sussex household to find "workable solutions" to the couple's plans to become financially independent and split their time between the UK and North America while still supporting the monarchy.
And today, Harry will discuss the potential options with his brother, father, and grandmother.
"Following a series of meetings and consultations across the last few days, there are a range of possibilities for the family to review which take into account the thinking the Sussexes outlined earlier in the week," a source told reporter Victoria Murphy on Saturday.
"As we have said previously, making a change to the working life and role in the monarchy for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex requires complex and thoughtful discussions."
As Meghan has already returned to Canada, it's likely she will join the conversation at Sandringham today by phone.
