 Prince Harry Accused of ‘Lying on Visa’ to Obtain US Residence, Says Royal Expert


Prince Harry has recently found himself in a rather uncomfortable predicament concerning his visa status in the United States, raising eyebrows and causing some degree of embarrassment. This situation stems from allegations that he may have been less than forthright about his past drug use on his American visa application.

The Duke of Sussex, who has openly discussed his struggles with substance abuse in his younger years in various public forums and interviews, is now facing scrutiny over whether this past behavior was accurately reported when he applied for his visa. The specific visa application process requires disclosure of any past drug use, and any omission can be seen as a serious misrepresentation.

Royal expert Jennie Bonds tells OK magazine: “This is a sticky situation for Harry to find himself in. There seem to be only three possible conclusions: he lied in his visa application, he lied in his book, or he has been made a special case by the American authorities. All of these signal an embarrassing outcome for Harry.

“I suspect a way will be found to preserve his reputation and his visa, but he does seem to have boxed himself into a tight corner. Given the prevalence of drugs, I don’t imagine for a moment that Harry’s application is unusual, (assuming he denied drugs).”

Jennie concluded: “I hope they don’t succeed in making an example of him just because of who he is. He has found love happiness and freedom in the States. I hope he can continue to enjoy it.”

Harry’s candid revelations about his tumultuous teenage and young adult years included admitting to experimenting with drugs such as marijuana and cocaine. These admissions are part of his broader effort to address mental health issues and the pressures of growing up in the royal spotlight. However, these same admissions are now at the center of the current controversy surrounding his visa status.

The implications of these allegations are significant and multifaceted. Not only do they have potential legal ramifications concerning his immigration status, but they also impact his public image and his ongoing efforts to establish a new life in the United States with his wife, Meghan Markle, and their children. Being in such a high-profile position, any inconsistency between his public statements and his visa application could be seen as a credibility issue, which is particularly sensitive given his extensive public engagement and charitable work.

The situation is indeed sticky for Prince Harry as it touches on both his personal integrity and his status as an immigrant in the United States. If it is found that there was a discrepancy in his visa application, he could face serious consequences that may affect his ability to reside in the U.S. This development is not only a source of potential legal trouble but also personal embarrassment, as it contradicts the image of transparency and honesty that he has worked hard to cultivate in recent years.
