Prince Harry’s Drug Use Claims in Memoir ‘Spare’ Under Scrutiny by Lawyers

Recent developments suggest that Prince Harry’s revelations about drug use in his memoir ‘Spare’ might be under question by legal authorities. Despite his admissions of cannabis, cocaine, and magic mushrooms consumption, lawyers representing the Biden administration propose that these claims could have been exaggerated to bolster book sales, as reported by the Telegraph. This scrutiny coincides with inquiries into Prince Harry’s immigration status, sparked by ongoing legal proceedings.

The scrutiny arises from a case under review in a D.C. court, which centers on whether the U.S. government should disclose Prince Harry’s visa application due to his drug-related disclosures. Lawyers from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) argue that releasing such documents, which would likely inquire about the royal’s history of drug use, would constitute an unjustified intrusion into his privacy.

The Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank, has been advocating for the release of these documents, citing Prince Harry’s memoir as evidence. According to High Times, the Foundation’s argument revolves around Prince Harry’s deportation due to his admission of drug use in the book.

Apart from drug use, ‘Spare’ contains other controversial revelations, including instances where Prince Harry recounts being encouraged by Prince William and Kate Middleton to wear a controversial costume and his experiences serving in Afghanistan. However, DHS attorney John Bardo emphasized that the contents of the book do not equate to sworn testimony or evidence of Prince Harry’s actual drug use.

Nile Gardiner, from the Heritage Foundation, dismissed the suggestion that Prince Harry fabricated his drug use stories, emphasizing that the memoir stands unchallenged by its author. Gardiner’s remarks followed a court hearing where various potential avenues for Prince Harry’s entry into the U.S., including falsifying drug use on immigration forms, obtaining waivers, or entering with a diplomatic visa, were discussed.

During the hearing, Bardo suggested that Prince Harry might have entered the U.S. on a diplomatic visa, given his royal status. However, Gardiner expressed skepticism about this claim, citing the lack of an official role for Prince Harry representing the British people.

The Heritage Foundation has previously argued that Prince Harry waived his privacy rights by monetizing his private life through deals reportedly worth over $135 million. Samuel Dewey, a lawyer for the Foundation, highlighted Prince Harry’s recent remarks about considering U.S. citizenship during a court hearing.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relocation to California in 2019 and subsequent decision to step back from royal duties have also raised questions about their immigration status. While Meghan started the process of applying for U.K. citizenship, it remains incomplete. According to U.S. immigration regulations, applicants holding titles or positions of nobility in foreign countries must renounce them.

In summary, legal scrutiny surrounds Prince Harry’s drug use claims in his memoir, with implications for his immigration status and ongoing legal battles.
