Harry, Meghan ‘could lose’ home

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly at risk of losing their R354 million Montecito mansion if it is found that the Duke of Sussex lied on his US visa application. Here’s what we know.


Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle quit their duties as senior working members of the royal family in 2020 and relocated to the US. The pair started a new life in the US with their two kids – Prince Archie (4) and Princess Lilibet (2). Prince Harry and Meghan live in a mansion in Montecito, California worth a whopping ($19 million) R354 million.

However, the pair could lose their stunning Montecito mansion if it is found out that Prince Harry had lied on his visa application, according to Sky News. So, what is the issue with Prince Harry’s visa?

Well, the Duke of Sussex confessed to using drugs in his younger days in his memoir Spare. The controversial memoir was released on 10 January 2023 and more than 3.2 million copies were sold worldwide.

Applicants for US visas are generally required to disclose whether they have taken drugs. The US does often decline visas to convicted or admitted drug users. So, the burning question is whether or not the Duke of Sussex lied on his visa application.

Aconservative think tank, The Heritage Foundation, took legal action against the Department of Homeland Security, demanding that the Duke’s visa application be released. A judge is in the process of reviewing the case. According to The Heritage Foundation’s website, the foundation wants the Department of Homeland Security to treat everyone equally.


Richard Fitzwilliams, a royal expert, told The Sun it’s a very “embarrassing” situation for both Harry and Meghan, whether he lied or not.

“The fact of the matter is that it will be very embarrassing, or may be very embarrassing. Harry may have included drug use on his application form. If he hasn’t, it will unquestionably make headlines, and that will not be beneficial so far as the Sussexes are concerned,” said Fitzwilliams to The Sun.

“I don’t think Harry would have written his memoir Spare now, because there’s evidence that the Sussexes have, in fact, beefed up the communications team,” he continued.

He went on to note that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have the possibility of substantial embarrassment, and would be made to look foolish.

“What we are facing, however, is a possibility of very considerable embarrassment for the Sussexes, that they’re made to look foolish, and the reasons for this, of course, are the attacks they’ve launched on the Royal family,” he added.

British author Douglas Murphy reportedly claimed that Prince Harry is “clearly badly advised”.
