Prince Harry allegedly said US President Donald Trump has 'blood on his hands', it has been revealed after two Russian pranksters claimed to have called the Queen's grandson.
In the supposed phone call, Harry, who apparently believed he was speaking to Greta Thunberg and her dad, slammed Trump's environmental policies.
The bombshell conversations, believed to have been with Russian comedians Vladimir Kuznetsov and Alexey Stolyarov, show the prince appearing to support Thunberg's climate strike while claiming the US president is a "sick person".
Both conversations, believed to be recorded in December and January, were published on YouTube and Facebook on Monday.
Speaking to the pair, the man believed to be Prince Harry said: "I think the mere fact that Donald Trump is pushing the coal industry is [sic] so big in America, he has blood on his hands."

He later added: "Unfortunately the world is being led by some very sick people so the people like yourselves and the younger generation are the ones that are going to make all the difference."
Attacking Trump's policy on the environment and climate change, he also claimed the president's support of the coal industry was devastating some of the island nations he and Meghan had visited.
Describing the places affected as "out of sight out of mind," he went on to say he and Meghan had "visited those places and I'm sure you have as well. People's lives have been completely destroyed."

There has been no public statement yet from Buckingham Palace about the alleged pranksters, whose previous targets have included Elton John and US presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
