Prince Harry could be banned from the States after admitting he took drugs, immigration experts have warned.
Harry, 38, could have his visa revoked after he confessed to snorting cocaine, smoking cannabis and taking magic mushrooms.
He has been living in California since quitting the UK in early 2020.

But according to an expert the revelations in his book Spare would be enough to get the average immigrant turned down – especially if he lied on his visa application.
Expert Alberto Benítez revealed: “He would have been asked [about drugs]. If he was truthful in his answers, he should have been denied.”
The professor, who is director of George Washington University’s Immigration Clinic, said failing to declare his drug use would have meant “perjuring himself on an official US government document”.
He added: “If he wasn’t Prince Harry, if was ‘Fred Jones’ and he had this kind of a background, he’d have a lot more scrutiny and I could certainly see the green card being denied.”
US immigration rules state that “current and/or past actions, such as drug or criminal activities” could make an applicant “ineligible for a visa”.
However, decisions are made on a “case-by-case” basis.
The Duke of Sussex has dominated global headlines this week thanks to the early release of his new memoir Spare.
