He replied: ‘This is a question I’ve avoided everyday of my life so far, mainly because I strongly dislike labels despite not knowing a solution to avoid them.

‘But if I had to answer I would people that I’ve always been bisexual #ahh.’ 

Harry told fans that he has known about his sexuality since the age of 13, but never previously felt the need to publicly address it after meeting Rebecca aged 17.

He told fans that being bisexual wasn’t a factor in the breakdown of their marriage.
