Prince Harry Says He’s ‘Considered’ Becoming a U.S. Citizen: ‘I Love Every Single Day’



The thought of becoming a United States citizen has crossed Prince Harry’s mind.

The Duke of Sussex, 39, spoke with Good Morning America’s Will Reeve this week during the Invictus Games Vancouver Whistler 2025’s One Year to Go celebration in Canada. Reeve asked how he was enjoying life in the U.S., as Harry and Meghan Markle relocated to her home state of California in 2020 after stepping back as working members of the royal family.

“It’s amazing,” Prince Harry said. “I love every single day.”

Reeve asked if Harry felt American, to which he laughed and said, “Do I feel American? Um, no. I don’t know how I feel.”

Prince Harry said he had “considered” becoming a U.S. citizen, but it wasn’t a “high priority.”

Referring to the Invictus Games Winter Training Camp he was focused on this week, Prince Harry said, “I’m here standing next to this with these guys and the American citizenship is a thought that has crossed my mind but certainly not something that is a high priority for me right now.”


After Meghan and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November 2017, PEOPLE confirmed that she planned to become a citizen of the United Kingdom after their royal wedding. Although she didn’t complete the rigorous process, the Duchess of Sussex talked about the difficulty of the U.K.’s citizenship exam on an episode of her Archetypes podcast.

Meghan said, “That citizenship exam is so hard! I was studying for it, and I remember going, ‘Oh my goodness.’ I would ask my husband, ‘Did you know this? Did you know this?’ And people went, ‘Oh, I had no idea.’ ”

As explained on the government website, the “Life in the U.K.” test gives hopefuls 45 minutes to answer 24 questions about British customs and traditions, a mandatory part of the application process to become a citizen.

Prince Harry has returned to the U.K. on several occasions over the past three years, most recently flying to his home country following the news of his father King Charles’ cancer diagnosis earlier this month.

When asked how he first learned about his father’s cancer diagnosis on Good Morning America, Harry replied, “I spoke to him. And I jumped on a plane and went to go see him as soon as I could.”


“Look, I love my family. The fact that I was able to get on a plane, go and see him, and spend any time with him — I’m grateful for that,” Harry said in the interview, which aired Friday morning.

When asked about his outlook on the state of his father’s health, he said, “That stays between me and him.”
