The 74-year-old music legend took to Facebook to set the record straight after a tabloid story incorrectly stated she helped the younger son of Prince Charles and Princess Diana find his way in L.A.
“While I wish them well, I have never met Prince Harry and Meghan,” Liza wrote. “Any statement to the contrary is a complete fabrication.”
In comments to the post, fans thanked the singer for speaking out against the phony story.
“That would actually be pretty hilarious…if Liza and Harry were friends,” one fan wrote.
“I think we all have an imaginary friendship with you Liza. Good luck Harry!” another remarked.
“How can one just lose their feet?” a third person asked.
“Maybe this is your chance to start the friendship with him. He could probably use it right now,” a fourth comment read of the recently relocated royal family member.
While Liza has said she does not know Harry, in the past she did spend a lot of time with his late mother, Diana, whom she considered a friend. The Tony Award winner first met the late princess when she turned up backstage at one of her concerts in London. The two women were also photographed looking chummy at celebrity events in the 1980s and ’90s.
“I was lucky enough to count Princess Di as a friend,” Liza once said, per Hello! “I was first introduced to her when she came backstage after a concert I did in London. Then we’d bump into each other at premieres or events where she’d be the guest of honor. We’d fall into conversation then we’d meet for tea.”
The singer added that her instinct was always to “protect” the young princess and she added that when they were together, they talked about “everything under the sun.”
Although Liza isn’t in their circle, there have been rumors that Meghan and Harry have a wide group of Hollywood friends. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are friendly with celebrity couples David and Victoria Beckham, George and Amal Clooney, and Elton John and his husband David Furnish. In addition, the royal couple are renting a mansion owned by Tyler Perry, a deal which is rumored to have been secured by their pal Oprah Winfrey.
