Remember Prince Harry's official statement condemning Meghan Markle's harsh criticism Kensington Palace released earlier this month. Well as it turns out, the prince got the Duke of Cambridge's royal thumbs up to release it. Prince William reportedly approved of his brother Harry's announcement that makes us love this family even more. And of course, this got twisted in an eye-rolling way.

The Telegraph reveals Prince William wasn't thrilled that his brother Harry wanted to shine such a public light on his relationship with Meghan Markle, but knew it was necessary given the scrutiny -- and what the Kensington Palace's announcement called "outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments" -- the 35-year-old has endured.

Some how, this "disappointment" turned into a rumor that Prince William didn't support Prince Harry's official statement which couldn't be further from the truth. So to dispel the hearsay, Prince William took care of the gossip in the best way possible: with an official statement of his own.

The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him ....

It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is 'the price she has to pay' and that 'this is all part of the game.' He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his.

Big brother has spoken!

It's such a shame that Prince Harry or the Duke of Cambridge had to even speak about such personal matters, but sadly, here we are. It's been a few months since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry became an item, so we doubt the pair have been dying to shout love affirmations from the rooftops for everyone to dissect and criticize.

Still, it's pretty awesome that this royal family has each other's backs.

A royal "insider" tells The Telegraph:

They [Prince William and Prince Harry] don't issue statements like that without talking to each other, and they talked about the Meghan Markle statement extensively in advance of it being put out ....

The Duke was as alarmed as anyone about what was happening with Meghan.

Hopefully things will start to calm down for Prince Harry and Meghan so no one else from Kenginston Palace feels the need to clap back at "social media trolls."

Live and let live, people.
