Harry warned drug use could threaten US visa in massive blow: ‘No exception for royalty’


Prince Harry admitted in his book and in a series of televised interviews that he had routinely taken drugs when he was younger to cope with his trauma.

Prince Harry has been warned there is “no exception for royalty” when it comes to his visa potentially being revoked. The Duke of Sussex, 38, has faced scrutiny since openly admitting to taking cocaine, cannabis and magic mushrooms in the past. Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani claims the royal should not even have been allowed into the US in the first place if he filled in his visa documentation correctly.

“That means Prince Harry’s visa should have been denied or revoked because he admitted to using cocaine, mushrooms and other drugs.”

The West Coast Trial Lawyers attorney said that the rules would apply to Harry as well as there is “no exception for royalty or recreational rules.”

Rahmani’s warning comes as the conservative Heritage Foundation launched a pressure campaign on authorities to release details of Harry’s original visa application.

Prince Harry’s six Coronation ‘demands’ as Sussexes remain undecided on UK return

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s appearance at King Charles III’s Coronation reportedly rests on whether Harry’s “demands” are met.

Earlier this month, the Sussexes confirmed they had been invited to the Coronation. However, the couple are yet to confirm if they will be joining the Royal Family at Westminster Abbey on May 6.

The DC-based think tank claims US taxpayers have a right to know whether the Duke misled authorities on his drug use when he first entered the country after stepping down from his formal role in 2020.

Under current immigration rules, people who are found to have lied to border officials can face a hefty fine or even deportation.

However, another lawyer told Page Six that Harry’s admission would likely not be a problem for the royal.

Texas-based immigration lawyer Sam Aldair insisted it was “unlikely that these admissions will present a problem because there have been no criminal convictions.”

And colleague James Leonard noted that revealing in a book that “you experimented with drugs when you were a young man” would not give authorities much of a base to challenge Harry’s presence in the country.

Speaking to renowned therapist Dr Gabor Maté earlier this month, Harry said he started taking drugs “recreationally” to handle his traumas and “pains of the past.”

The Duke said: “It was the cleaning of the windscreen, the removal of life’s filters — these layers of filters — it removed it all for me and brought me a sense of relaxation, relief, comfort, a lightness that I managed to hold back for a period of time.

“I would say it is one of the fundamental parts of my life that changed me and helped me deal with the traumas and the pains of the past.”

Harry added: “They’re unlocking so much of what we’ve suppressed.”
