Prince Harry ‘falls victim to Russian hoax call pretending to be Greta Thunberg’

Prince Harry was reportedly duped into saying he was “completely separate” from most of the Royal Family in hoax phone calls recorded by Russian pranksters.

The Duke of Sussex also spoke openly about his agony over Megxit and the tension surrounding it, it's claimed, in conversations with Russian jokers claiming to be climate campaigner Greta Thunberg and her father.

Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov — AKA Vovan and Lexus — twice spoke to Harry, 35, on the landline at his luxury bolthole on Vancouver Island, Canada, the Sun reports.

The clip was initially posted on YouTube but it doesn't appear on their profile page.

Clips of the conversation, which feature a voice that sounds like the prince, have been shared on social media.

During the calls, he says Donald Trump has 'blood on his hands' over climate change.

The conversations were said to have been recorded on New Year’s Eve and January 22.

In both calls the royal appears to open up about the tension at the heart of the Royal Family.

“I can assure you, marrying a Prince or Princess is not all it’s made up to be," he jokes at one point.

He then speaks about how hard it was for him and Meghan, 38, to quit Britain.

“Um, it’s, that’s probably a conversation for another time, there’s lots of layers to it and lots of pieces to the puzzle," he says.

“But sometimes the right decision isn’t always the easy one."

This isn't the first time Vovan and Lexus have pranked high profile figures, having previously released hoax calls featuring Prime Minister Boris Johnson , US presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders and Elton John.
