Prince Harry Officially Embraces American Residency: A Questionable Transition

It is official: Prince Harry is now an American. By giving up his British residency in new papers, Harry has made America his legal home. His first public words since his sister-in-law Kate Middleton told the world she had cancer were on Wednesday, when he spoke via video link at Travalyst's annual general meeting.

Travalyst is a nonprofit group based in London that was started by Prince Harry in 2019 to promote eco-friendly travel. Companies filed their tax forms with Harry's new details as part of the end-of-year process. The Daily Mail got copies of the papers that show Harry wrote "United States" as his "new country/state." Since June 29, 2018, Harry has lived in the US.

Harry's statement in Travalyst's papers that the US is his "new country/state" is a strong sign that he does not plan to live forever in his home country any time soon.

Harry and Meghan Markle moved to the United States in 2020. They now live in Montecito, California, with their two children, Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2. This move was called "Megxit."

The late queen gave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex Frogmore Cottage as a gift after their wedding in 2018. They had to leave their home in the UK.

They finally moved out in 2023, which meant they no longer had a legal home in the UK.

The new information about Prince Harry's eco-travel business Travalyst that was shared with Companies House makes it very unclear whether he can still be a Counsellor of State.

Since Prince Harry does not have a home in the UK anymore because King Charles asked the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to leave Frogmore Cottage, which was a gift from the late Queen Elizabeth, he may not be qualified for this job.

It is getting harder for US President Joe Biden's government to keep Harry's visa records secret, which is why his residency status changed. Even more pressure was put on Harry after the American ambassador to London said that he would not be deported while Biden was alive.

In its court battle to get the file released, the conservative Heritage Foundation think tank in Washington, DC, has used Jane Hartley's statements as proof.

When Harry and Meghan visit the UK, however, they no longer have a place to stay and have to rely on living with friends or getting a hotel.

"Right now, for now, home is within the United States." Additionally, it really does feel that way. In an interview with "Today" in 2022, Harry said, "We have been welcomed with open arms and have such a great community up in Santa Barbara."
