Prince Harry is "feeling homesick" for the UK and "wears his heart on his sleeve," a royal commentator has claimed.

Harry has lived in California with his wife Meghan Markle since 2020 after they dramatically quit their jobs as working royals and moved across the pond.


According to royal commentator Kinsey Schofield, the duke does pine for his homeland but it depends on the day.

Speaking to the To Di For Daily podcast, Schofield said: "It just depends on the day. I’m sure Harry could get homesick, and we know that he is prone to wearing his heart on his sleeve.

"Meghan has likely permitted him to try to establish an additional residence in the UK if that will make him happy, but I doubt she has any desire to participate in the process or visit.”

The expert added that he “won’t make any drastic or financial moves until he settles his security issues”.

Harry took legal action against the Home Office over its February 2020 decision that he should receive a different degree of taxpayer-funded protection when in the country.

In a judgment in February 2024, retired High Court judge Sir Peter Lane rejected the duke’s case.

However, Harry has been given the green light to challenge Sir Peter’s dismissal at the Court of Appeal.

The duke has spoken about his love of the UK before and in his memoir Spare, released last year, he talked about his eviction from Frogmore Cottage.

Harry wrote: "Once upon a time, this was going to be my forever home. Instead, it had proved to be just another brief stop."

The couple were allowed to keep Frogmore Cottage as their UK base for several years after they were gifted the house as a wedding present from the late Queen.

Things then changed in 2023 when King Charles evicted Harry and Meghan from the royal residence.

According to The Telegraph, Harry and Meghan viewed Frogmore Cottage as the "only place that’s left as a safe space" for them and their children in the UK.

The couple had barely stayed at the property as they live in a Californian mansion in Montecito with their two children.

Both times Harry returned to the UK this year he stayed at a hotel and did not stay in any royal residence.
