Prince Harry has shared that he has contemplated becoming an American citizen, marking a new development in his life since he and his wife, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, stepped back from their royal roles and settled in California four years ago.

During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” at the site of the upcoming Invictus Games in Whistler, Canada, the Duke of Sussex was asked about his life in the United States and the possibility of applying for citizenship.

“Yeah, I have considered it,” he replied. When asked what might prevent him from applying, he responded, “I have no idea.” While acknowledging that the thought has crossed his mind, Harry clarified that obtaining American citizenship is not a top priority for him at the moment.

His comments come in the wake of his father, King Charles III of Britain, being diagnosed with cancer. Harry revealed that he learned about the diagnosis directly from his father and immediately flew to London to be with him.

Expressing his gratitude for being able to spend time with his family, Harry declined to provide further details about the king’s condition, stating, “That stays between me and him.”

The diagnosis came to light when Charles underwent a routine procedure for an enlarged prostate at a private hospital in London, where doctors discovered the cancer.

This development follows Charles’s crowning at Westminster Abbey eight months ago, succeeding his mother, Queen Elizabeth II, who passed away in 2022.

Harry’s relationship with his father and his elder brother, Prince William, has been strained for some time. Although he visited his father after the diagnosis, there have been no reports of a reconciliation with William.

When asked about being away from his family in London, Harry mentioned that he would visit them as much as possible but emphasized that he now has his own family.

The royal family was a focal point in Harry’s best-selling book, “Spare,” published last year, where he openly criticized certain aspects.

Harry, 39, founded the Invictus Games for wounded, injured, or sick service personnel and veterans after his service in Afghanistan. His visit to Whistler was to oversee preparations for next year’s event.
