Prince Harry has renounced his U.K. residency and declared in official records that his “new country/state” is now the United States.

Filings published by Companies House read that, “Prince Henry Charles Albert David Duke of Sussex” recorded that his “New Country/State Usually Resident” is now the U.S., according to documents obtained by the Daily Mail.

The Duke of Sussex previously recorded his place of residency as United Kingdom, but that has changed after he and his wife Meghan Markle opted to step down from their royal roles in 2020 and eventually move to Southern California where they raise their two kids, Prince Archie, 4, and Princess Lilibet, 2.

The paperwork was filed for the royal’s travel with Travalyst, a sustainable travel organization the duke founded in 2019, the New York Post noted.

When he founded the organization, his original home was listed as the U.K., the Post noted.

At the group’s annual general meeting on Wednesday, the duke made his first public comments since his sister-in-law Kate Middleton shared the shocking announcement on March 22 that she’d been diagnosed with cancer after undergoing “major abdominal surgery” in January.

“Travel and tourism rely on destinations, held together by communities, without which we have nowhere to travel to,” the duke said during his remarks, the Post noted.

“Communities are the beating heart of travel, and we must do better by the people who are the custodians of the places we visit,” he added.


In a 2022 interview with the “Today” show, Prince Harry talked about moving to the U.S. and said, “Home for me, now, for the time being, is in the States.”

“And it really feels that way as well,” he added. “We’ve been welcomed with open arms and have got such a great community up in Santa Barbara.”

Prince Harry and Markle are definitely not favorite royals with the U.K. population, with Middleton recently being named the most popular royal in the United Kingdom, surpassing her husband Prince William.

A British YouGov poll — taken between February and April — shows that at the start of February, the Prince of Wales led the rest of the royals as the most favored member of the family, with 77%, followed by the Princess of Wales with 74%.

However, those numbers switched by the start of April after Middleton’s cancer diagnosis announcement. Princess Kate now leads the pack with 76%, followed by her royal husband with 73%, the poll showed. Prince Harry and Markle are mentioned much further down the poll as some of the least favored royals, with the Duke of Sussex getting 31% favorability, beating out his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, with only 26% of the vote.
