Prince Harry warned Britons ‘don’t want’ him to come back as Duke faces ‘significant’ questions over visa
Prince Harry has been warned that Britons “do not want” him to return to the UK as a US court prepares to hear an appeal over his visa.
Nile Gardiner, of the Heritage Foundation, spoke exclusively to GB News after it was announced a hearing of his organisation’s suit will be heard on 6 June.
Gardiner revealed the proceedings will be open to the press.
Past drug use could be grounds to deny a visa application for the US.
The Heritage Foundation is calling on Harry’s visa application to be made public after the Duke of Sussex documented past drug use in his memoir, Spare.
In the book, the Duke spoke on his previous use of cocaine, marijuana and magic mushrooms.
Despite his efforts to ensure the Prince is scrutinised, Gardiner admitted to GB News that Britons are not likely to be receptive towards any possible return.
Prince Harry admitted to drug use in his memoir
He told Patrick Christys: “The last thing I think the British people want is Prince Harry going back to the United Kingdom.
“The issue is whether or not Prince Harry was honest with his immigration application.
“We want to establish whether Harry was truthful with his extensive drug use that he admitted to in Spare.
“And also whether or not he was given preferential treatment.
“A federal judge in Washington DC is presiding over a hearing to examine whether or not there should be expedited processing for the request with regard to the Freedom of Information Act.
“It will be a very significant hearing because if the judge does indeed offer an opinion which supports the expedited processing of the Freedom of Information request, this puts significant pressure on the Biden Administration to take the request very seriously.
“So far, they have been stonewalling the request.”
It comes as the Duke tackles a number of legal battles including allegations of unlawful information gathering brought against Daily Mail publisher Associated Newspapers Limited (ANL), and News Group Newspapers (NGN), which publishes the sun.
The Prince is awaiting to hear whether the cases can go ahead.
