Prince Harry Lists US As Primary Residence, Considers American Citizenship.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince-FanArt

Prince Harry has officially listed the United States as his primary residence for the first time since stepping back from his royal duties in 2020. According to documents obtained by the Daily Mail, the Duke of Sussex updated his housing records, indicating that his 'New Country/State Usually Resident' is now the US. This change was noted on documents filed by Companies House for Harry's eco-travel venture, Travalyst, with the 'date of change' listed as June 29, 2023.

Harry and Meghan Markle moved out of their UK home on June 28, following their eviction from Frogmore Cottage by King Charles III. Despite this change in residency, Harry expressed in December 2023 that he still considers the UK to be his 'home' but felt compelled to relocate to the US due to safety concerns for his family.

The Duke of Sussex has also expressed interest in obtaining American citizenship, although he mentioned it is not a top priority at the moment. Living in California for the past four years with his wife and children, Harry has shared his appreciation for the West Coast lifestyle, stating that he enjoys it every single day.

However, Harry's past admission of drug use in his memoir, 'Spare,' has raised questions about the potential impact on his visa status. Legal experts have differing opinions on the matter, with some suggesting that unless Harry faces legal issues related to drugs or alcohol, his status in the US should not be at high risk.

Another consideration for Harry is whether he would need to renounce his royal titles to pursue American citizenship. The US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) outlines a policy that requires applicants with titles of heredity or positions of nobility in foreign states to renounce them publicly as part of the citizenship process.

As Harry navigates these potential challenges, he continues to be in the public eye, recently launching a new website that reflects his royal connections. The path to American citizenship may present hurdles for the prince, but his journey in the US remains an evolving story.
