A spokesperson for the pair said: "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.

"Making a change to the working lives and the role in the monarchy for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will require both complex and thoughtful discussions."

Last week, Meghan and Harry released a statement revealing their plans to take a step back from royal life.

They said they will work to become "financially independent" while still "fully supporting" the Queen.

At the time, Buckingham Palace officials later described the move as "complicated".

They said in a brief statement: "Discussions with The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at an early stage.

"We understand their desire to take a different approach, but these are complicated issues that will take time to work through."
