Harper's Bazaar: Berkshire Pub Rose & Crown Denied Prince Harry, Meghan, Baby Archie Visited Them

Following the reports that Prince Harry, Meghan Markle, and their son, Archie, attended a pub, the Rose and Crown, a spokesperson for the establishment came out to debunk the claims.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle won't win "favorite royal couple of the year" because of the negative way they often get painted in the press, and this time isn't an exception.

Towards the end of August, reports surfaced in several news outlets that the Royal couple took their son to dine at the Rose and Crown Pub, at Winfield village. The pub is located a few miles from their Frogmore Cottage home, in Windsor.

According to Harper's BAZAAR, a spokesperson for the establishment debunked the reports stating unambiguously that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, did not, and have never been at the Rose and Crown.

Today, we are excited to be able to announce details for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s upcoming tour to Africa! 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • In just two weeks, Their Royal Highnesses will embark on this official tour focusing on community, grassroots leadership, women’s and girls’ rights, mental health, HIV/AIDS and the environment. This programme has been many months in the making, and The Duke and Duchess are eager to focus their energies on the great work being done in Southern Africa. From meeting with Archbishop Desmond Tutu to joining ‘Waves for Change’ on Monwabisi Beach, the South Africa programme will be educational and inspiring. The Duke is especially proud to continue the legacy left by his mother with her work in Angola as he joins Halo Trust again in an effort to rid the world of landmines. HRH will also travel to Malawi where he will check in on the British Army’s partnership with African Parks and will be working on the ground supporting local communities. The Duke is particularly proud to be able to deliver an exciting new initiative, a Queen’s Commonwealth Canopy three-country partnership which he designed and consulted with Governments in Namibia, Botswana and Angola to protect forest and wildlife corridors around the Okavango Delta. The Duchess will be working with local organisations to promote women and girls’ health and education, entrepreneurship and leadership. With such a textured culture and history, Their Royal Highnesses are grateful for the opportunity to connect with those on the ground in Southern Africa and to be inspired by the work being done and learn how they can be better supported. As President and Vice President of The Queens Commonwealth Trust and The Duke’s role as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador, The Duke and Duchess cannot wait to meet with young leaders mobilising change and adding to the beauty of these Commonwealth countries 🇿🇦🇧🇼🇦🇴🇲🇼 • “We look forward to seeing you soon!” • Photo ©️ PA images / Tim Graham - Getty Images / @Sentebale /@AfricanParksNetwork / @YouthAlert

The statement by the unnamed spokesperson contradicts the eye witness report given by a 53-year-old businessman to The Sun, and photos by TMZ, allegedly taken in the interior of the pub.

According to the eye witness, the Royals arrived with two security men and sat inside away from the crowd outside. Prince Harry and Markle got treated like other patrons, and Archie behaved himself while his parents dined.

This evening, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex attended #TheLionKing European premiere in London at the Odeon Theatre. In celebration of the film’s release, The Walt Disney Company announced #ProtectThePride, a global conservation campaign to support efforts protecting the rapidly diminishing lion population across Africa. As a part of their commitment to this cause, Disney also made a donation to The Duke of Sussex’s upcoming environment & community initiative which will be formally announced this autumn. The Duke and Duchess are committed to advancing conservation efforts across Africa and around the world, and working with communities to ensure a sustainable future for the planet. This evening Their Royal Highnesses had the pleasure of meeting the cast and creative team behind the film, as well as supporters of @africanparksnetwork, of which The Duke is President.

The photos from TMZ showed the Duke working a beer tap, while the back of someone that appeared to be the Duchess dressed in white shorts and an army green shirt, got snapped. 

This is not the first scandal against The Royals. But it remains unclear if the businessman gave The Sun a wrong account or the pub is trying to cover up the fact that the parents-of-one brought baby Archie to a drinking house.
