Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex KCVO has renounced his British residency and declared the United States as his new home, according to recent paperwork filed with Travalyst.

According to filings published by Companies House, Harry's residency status has been updated and now lists him as "usually resident" in the USA, replacing his previous designation of the United Kingdom.

The Daily Mail reported on this change after accessing the relevant paperwork.


The section, which previously stated the United Kingdom, is noted to have been changed on June 29, 2023 – the day King Charles asked the Sussexes to vacate Frogmore Cottage.

This latest incident comes amid the US government facing pressure to disclose Harry's visa records following comments by the American ambassador to London.

They indicated that he would not be deported during President Joe Biden's administration.


Advocacy groups, including the Heritage Foundation, demanded for transparency.

Questions have been raised about Harry's eligibility to serve as a Counsellor of State – a role designated for select members of the Royal Family who can deputize for the Monarch in specific circumstances.

With his new residency status, concerns have emerged about whether he meets the criteria, given the requirement for Counsellors of State to maintain UK citizenship. 

Additionally, a court decision on Monday upheld the ruling that Harry cannot contest the reduction in his personal security detail during visits to Britain.

This decision follows his legal challenge initiated after the British government informed him in 2020 of the decreased publicly-funded protection he would receive while in the UK.

Harry relocated to Montecito, California with wife Meghan Markle and their two kids after stepping down from their position as working royals in 2020.
