Will Prince Harry be expelled from the US?

Harry used to be considered the party prince. He recently made his cocaine use public. This could affect his family. Because his visa is at risk.

He wanted to disclose everything in his autobiography “Spare”: Prince Harry had revealed in his memoirs and various television interviews that he had used cocaine, cannabis and magic mushrooms in the past. This has now called immigration specialists into action.

They are demanding that the Duke of Sussex publish his US visa application. They want to check whether he had stated his drug use in it before he emigrated to California in 2020 with his American wife Duchess Meghan and their son Prince Archie, who was born in London. According to Mail Online, US immigration law provides for harsh penalties for lying to immigration officials, including deportation and disqualification from citizenship applications.

Different views from different lawyers

Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani told the New York Post on Wednesday: “Admission to drug use is usually a ground for inadmissibility. That means Prince Harry’s visa should have been denied or revoked because he admitted using cocaine, mushrooms and taking other drugs.” The president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, based in Los Angeles, added that “there is no exception for royal or recreational use.”

However, Texas immigration attorney Sam Adair said those revelations are unlikely to pose a problem because there have been no criminal convictions.

What questions did Harry answer when applying for a visa?

It is not known what questions Prince Harry was asked when applying for his US visa, as it is not yet clear which visa the British royal received.

However, the relevant question in the ESTA application, which most UK tourists use, is “Have you ever broken any law affecting the possession, use or distribution of illegal drugs?” A “yes” usually leads to the rejection of the application. As “Mail Online” further reports, Harry and his team want to prevent the disclosure of his application documents.
