Years after leaving the United Kingdom, Prince Harry identified the United States as his primary home, according to reports.

In 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex decided to take a break from royal obligations and go to California. According to documents obtained by the Daily Mail, Prince Harry changed his paperwork years later to emphasize that he no longer lived in Britain.

According to the Companies House registration, Prince Harry's new "Country/State Usually Resident" has been changed to reflect the United States. Previous records indicated it was the United Kingdom.

On June 2, 2023, fresh information was lodged with Companies House for Prince Harry's eco-travel Travalyst.

Following their royal wedding in 2018, Queen Elizabeth gave Prince Harry and Meghan Markle the Frogmore Cottage. It was renovated under the Sovereign Grant and served as their official residence in London. Prince Harry's contract at Frogmore Cottage expired in June 2023.

Several sites stated months before that King Charles had urged his son and daughter-in-law to leave the property. In one episode of "Palace Confidential," Rebecca English, royal editor for the Daily Mail, stated that as a result of His Majesty's decision, Prince Harry "won't actually have a place to stay in the United Kingdom."

Tom Bower, a British journalist and investigative reporter, blamed the Sussexes for the King's choice. According to him, the royal couple offended the British monarch during their controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey, the Netflix docuseries "Harry & Meghan," Prince Harry's novel "Space," and appearances on "60 Minutes" and "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert."

"Harry and Meghan provoked him [King Charles] with Harry's disgraceful book and the interviews he gave. I mean, what did he expect? Harry wanted the royal family to come on bended knee begging for forgiveness, and he's completely crossed the spectrum, he's in the mad wilderness of deranged victimhood,” he told Page Six.

Furthermore, Prince Harry's shift of residence raised the question of whether he would continue to serve as Counsellor of State.

"We are really in uncharted waters here: the Prince Harry situation is not something the law easily allows for. The idea of the second son of the King choosing a life away from royal duties is not something the law has thought about, and I can imagine that Buckingham Palace would be concerned by that. The King had the chance to remove him with the counsellor-of-state legislation last year, but chose not to,” Dr. Craig Prescott, a constitutional law expert, told Daily Mail.

The Counsellors of State were established to cover the monarch's short-term absences in situations where regency would be unnecessary. The members are the four adults who follow in succession and are at least 21 years old. Currently, they are Prince William, Prince Harry, Prince Andrew, and Princess Beatrice. Queen Camilla was inserted as the monarch's wife.

In November 2022, King Charles proposed adding his siblings, Princess Anne and Prince Edward, as Counsellors of State. According to Town & Country, the modification required an amendment to the Regency Act of 1937, which was officially added a month later.
