Prince Harry is shutting down a current report that accused him of telling a buddy “Those Brits need to learn a lesson” forward of the couple’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey final yr.

The international press secretary for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex advised HuffPost that “this is a baseless hit piece masquerading as journalism.’”

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

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

The Sun didn’t instantly reply to a HuffPost request for additional remark.

The story and response come on the heels of Prince William and Kate Middleton’s current, three-day tour of Boston, the place they have been for the Earthshot Prize Awards.

As the tour nearly coincided with the discharge of Harry and Meghan Markle’s forthcoming Netflix docuseries, a palace supply previous to the journey stated the Prince and Princess of Wales wouldn’t “be distracted by other things.”

A trailer for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s six-part collection with the streaming big dropped on the second day of William and Kate’s royal tour, main many to query the timing of its launch.

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

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

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