According to the New York Post, Donald Trump has accused the current administration of going easy on Prince Harry. "I believe they were overly gracious to him, given his actions," Trump commented. Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference held last Saturday in Oxon Hill, Washington, he suggested that he would not offer support to the prince if he were to win the next election.

"I wouldn't defend him. He betrayed the Queen, and that's unforgivable. He'd be left to his own devices if it were up to me," the former president told 'The Express.' Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle, currently reside in California. The conservative think tank, Heritage Foundation, has raised questions about the prince's immigration status, with some experts claiming that the 39-year-old might not have legally entered the United States due to his past admittance to drug usage.

The admission of drug misuse can pose a serious barrier for immigrants hoping to be admitted to the United States. The Heritage Foundation, in its lawsuit, argues that American law "generally doesn't permit such individuals entry." However, attorneys representing the Department of Homeland Security have disputed this claim - as reported by the New York Post. Officials have stated that the information shared in Prince Harry's book does not constitute a legally binding statement or evidence.

The marriage of an immigrant to a U.S. citizen typically results in the immigrant securing a green card. However, the New York Post notes that the specifics of Prince Harry's visa type remain unclear.
