Prince William is said to be "deeply unhappy" that his brother Prince Harry released a statement regarding his relationship with actress Meghan Markle.

The Duke of Cambridge is concerned that Harry released a statement so early in their relationship and fears that he "offered too much information," reports the Mail Online.

"He thinks Harry made a mistake in confirming the relationship and releasing such an emotional statement so soon," a palace source is said to have told the Mail.

"He feels that the statement offered up too much information and only served to fuel speculation about how serious Harry is about Meghan. It could also put him in a difficult position in the future regardless of whether the relationship leads to something or not."

"William knows that his brother can be hot-headed and understands that it is something he felt very strongly about. Privately, he shares a lot of the sentiments he and Meghan expressed as, make no mistake, she was very involved in the statement too"

"But he believes it was wrong to make his feelings so public."

However, a Kensington Palace spokesman told to the publication that William (34) "absolutely understands the situation."

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

Harry (32) issued a statement earlier this month confirming his relationship with Meghan, but lashed out at the media's treatment of the actress, saying she has been subject to a "wave of abuse and harrassment."
