Richard Ward and the Mail on Sunday
Following today’s page 3 story in the Mail on Sunday, Richard Ward of Richard Ward Hair & Metrospa wishes to make it clear that any suggestion that he was ‘jealous’ of James Pryce, one of his former employees, or vindictive towards him would be totally untrue and grossly defamatory.
This is immediately apparent from all the salon’s press statements and its participation in media coverage of the Royal Wedding earlier this year.
These articles and media clips demonstrate how Richard has gone out of his way to give full and total recognition to James for the important role he played on the day. Likewise, he wishes to make it clear that he was extremely careful to ensure that his team at the salon adhered very strictly to advice given regarding publicity surrounding the Royal Wedding.
This can be verified by any of the 80 strong Richard Ward team, who were present at the numerous staff meetings at which they were continually reminded of client confidentiality, the need to be totally discreet and fully aware of potentially intrusive media interest.
Any repetition of the totally unfounded and grossly defamatory allegations in today’s Mail on Sunday may result in legal action.
Richard cannot comment further at this stage.
