Prince Harry was tricked into spilling his guts about “Megxit” and Jeffrey Epstein during a prank phone call with two Russian hoaxsters pretending to be climate activist Greta Thunberg and her father, a report said Tuesday.
The pranksters, Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, released the conversations, which were recorded on New Year’s Eve and Jan. 22, in a YouTube video on Tuesday night.
Harry, whose decision to step back from his royal duties with his wife, Meghan Markle, recently shocked the UK and royal watchers around the globe, sounded off on topics such as Prince Andrew’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein and his “Megxit” from the royal family, the UK newspaper The Sun reported.
“This decision certainly wasn’t the easy one but it was the right decision for our family, the right decision to be able to protect my son,” Harry said of their break with the royal family.
“And I think there’s a hell of a lot of people around the world that can identify and respect us for putting our family first,” he added, according to the report.
The pranksters then asked the prince about reports of him being “stripped” of his royal duties.
“No, no, again you mustn’t believe what you read. No one has stripped us of our titles,” he responded, according to The Sun.
When they asked him about Prince Andrew’s ties to late multimillionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, he responded that he had “very little to say on that.”
“Whatever he has done or hasn’t done is completely separate from me and my wife. We operate in a way of inclusivity, and we are focusing on community. And so we are completely separate from the majority of my family,” he said.
Harry also took a shot at President Trump on one of the calls, saying he has “blood on his hands” for promoting the US coal industry. The pranksters have made headlines for years for duping famous people in prank calls, including Elton John and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Critics have alleged the duo may be linked to Russian security services.
Representatives for Prince Harry declined to comment.
