You know that a royal's relationship is serious when he has to give a public statement about it. That's what happened when Prince Harry told the world to give some much-needed privacy to his new girlfriend, Suits star Meghan Markle. And now, even his brother, who has met his potential future sister-in-law, has felt the need to weigh in.

According to The Telegraph, rumors had swirled that Prince William didn't like Harry's decision to go public with the relationship. But it turns out that couldn't be further from the truth. People close to the royals told the paper that the family wouldn't release such a public statement unless they all talked about it beforehand. Apparently, the royals pored over every word before releasing it, especially since both brothers have the same media team.

Kensington Palace cleared the air with yet another statement: "The Duke of Cambridge absolutely understands the situation concerning privacy and supports the need for Prince Harry to support those closest to him."

So lay off, okay? Prince Harry has better things to do, like pose with locals and take in gorgeous views during his current trip to the Caribbean. (Poor guy.)
