The Duke of Sussex's life in the US hit a roadblock after a lawsuit was launched by The Heritage Foundation

Prince Harry "deeply regrets" writing a specific chapter in Spare amid a possible second Trump presidency, a royal commentator has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex relocated to the US in 2020 after announcing their intention to step back from royal duties and seek financial independence from the monarchy.


However, Harry's new life in the US hit a roadblock after a lawsuit was launched by The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank group.

The lawsuit followed the duke's admission of past drug use in his memoir, Spare, released in January 2023.

Applicants are required to disclose any history of drug use when completing the form to apply for a US green card.

In his memoir, Harry candidly shared his encounters with magic mushrooms and cannabis.

Speaking about an experience taking magic mushrooms, the duke wrote: "I stared at the bin. It stared back.

"'What-staring?' Then it became... a head. I stepped on the pedal and the head opened its mouth. A huge open grin."

The think tank has since accused Harry of dishonesty about his previous drug use on his application and benefiting from preferential treatment from the Biden administration.

The form is currently under scrutiny by Washington DC Judge Carl Nichols.

Speaking to GB News earlier this year, Donald Trump said: “We’ll have to see if they know something about the drugs, and if he lied they’ll have to take appropriate action.”

Royal commentator Tom Quinn told The Mirror: "The couple have taken legal advice because they're seriously worried that if Donald Trump wins the next election, Harry's visa may be revoked.

"Trump has insisted that if Harry is found to have lied on his visa application about his admitted drug taking, he could be asked to leave the country."

He added: "One thing is for sure Harry deeply regrets ever making his drug-taking public.

"It never occurred to him that this might end up threatening his whole life plan."
