US Foundation Questions Validity of Prince Harry's Visa
Prince Harry faces legal trouble in his adopted home of the United States following the announcement of his memoirs, in which he admitted to past drug use. A right-wing US foundation is demanding access to Harry's immigration documents, questioning whether the US immigration authorities properly granted his application and whether he made truthful statements on his application. Yesterday, a hearing on the matter was held in the US capital, Washington.
Grounds for Visa Rejection
The son of King Charles III has been living in the US with his wife, Duchess Meghan, for several years. The "Heritage Foundation" had previously requested access to Prince Harry's visa application from the Department of Homeland Security under the Freedom of Information Act. The foundation argues that Harry's drug admission could be grounds for rejecting the visa. Therefore, the release of the visa application is of immense public interest, according to the "Heritage Foundation."
Details on Drug Use
In his memoir, entitled "Spare," Prince Harry wrote about drug experiences. The foundation now wants to examine whether Prince Harry made any statements about drug use on his visa application. The department had not complied with the request and had pointed out that there was no agreement from Harry to release the documents.
No Decision Yet
During the hearing in Washington yesterday, no decision was made on the matter. The judge gave the Department of Homeland Security until next Tuesday to decide how it will proceed on the matter, according to CNN.
Prince Harry himself is not part of the case between the foundation and the US department, and was therefore not present.
