• Twitter slammed Prince Harry for saying Prince Charles cut him off financially after Megxit
  • Some netizens voiced support to Prince Harry by saying that there were no contradictions
  • Clarence House said in its report that Prince Charles gave the Sussexes a substantial amount for their transition after Megxit

Twitter users slammed Prince Harry about his claim that Prince Charles cut him off financially after seeing Clarence House's annual financial report.

Clarence House has released its annual financial report, revealing that the Prince of Wales gave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex a "substantial amount" to support them with their transition.

"As we'll all remember in January 2020 when the duke and duchess announced that they were going to move away from the working Royal Family, the duke said that they would work towards becoming financially independent," a Clarence House spokesperson was quoted by Sky News, as saying.

"The Prince of Wales allocated a substantial sum to support them with this transition," the spokesperson said, adding that the financial support ended in the summer of 2020.

Many felt that the report was inconsistent with Prince Harry's claim that his dad had stopped supporting his family financially after Megxit. So, they slammed the Duke of Sussex and called him a liar.

"Prince Harry lied about being financially cut off by Prince Charles. Prince harry is a shameless liar," one wrote.

"I always thought Harry saying he was 'cut off' after the first quarter of 2020 conveniently misrepresented that he had likely received a large lump sum from Prince Charles before then, but he had to know that everything would come out in the financial reports, right? Why lie??" another tweeted.

"By Harry saying he was cut off when Charles was funding him smacks of ungrateful, sour behaviour," a third user stated.

"So The Prince of Wales DID NOT cut Harry & Meghan off financially as he claimed in that Oprah interview. Royal accounts show he spent a 'substantial sum' on his son, supporting him until he was financially independent," royal editor Robert Jobson wrote.

"My family cut me off financially. You said it Harry! It’s proved in the accounts you lied again.. poor Chuck," a fifth netizen added.

Meanwhile, some netizens defended the Sussexes. According to them, there were no discrepancies with the timing of Prince Harry’s statement.

"Despite some confusing reports, Prince Charles and Prince Harry’s timelines for the period the Sussexes’ financial support ended are the same. Clarence House says funding continued until last summer (Q1 of the UK’s fiscal year is April to June) and Harry told Oprah the same," royal correspondent Omid Scobie tweeted.

"Harry said they were cut off at the end of the first quarter, which would have been in June 2020. How does that contradict Charles?" another asked.

"Charles funded them till March 2020, the Sussexes were STILL working royals till MARCH 2020, which means he only paid for them like any boss paid their employees in a regular job. Any smart person can connect the dots. Nothing about this shows Charles as a caring father," a third Sussex supporter wrote.

"Exactly! The fact is Prince Charles abandoned his son, took away his security. He didnt care he was high risk. Tyler Perry provided a home & security for them till they settled. To add, they received £2.4 million from Harry and Meghan which definitely offset that Charles 'money'," a fourth user wrote

"I just posted the exact thing. Harry didn’t lie. It’s the Fiscal Quarter just as H said which runs from April-June. The UK media is so petty. Thanks Omid," a fifth netizen added.

Prince Harry and Markle's spokesperson released a statement to Insider to address the issue. The spokesperson said, "It's inaccurate to suggest that there's a contradiction."

"The Duke's comments during the Oprah interview were in reference to the first quarter of the fiscal reporting period in the UK, which starts annually in April," the spokesperson explained. "This is the same date that the 'transitional year' of the Sandringham agreement began and is aligned with the timeline that Clarence House referenced."
