It would appear the honeymoon is over for Prince Harry with reports indicating that the controversial royal is growing tired of his life in the US and longs for a return to British soil.

In a recent interview with The Mirror, royal author Tom Quinn explained that Harry has a growing desire to spend more time in the UK but faces a roadblock in his return home.

“Prince Harry wants to spend more time in the UK, but he knows he is going to have to do it alone,” Quinn told the publication.

“Meghan has publicly stated that she has no intention of returning to England. This puts Harry in a really difficult position if any kind of positive relationship is to be re-established with his family.

“After the excitement of moving to the US, the honeymoon period is now over and Harry is beginning to find time hangs heavy for him – he is increasingly nostalgic for much of his old life back in the UK. For all his problems with his family he always loved his military and school friends and he misses them.”

Harry may have no choice but to return to the UK after it was reported that he and his wife may be facing the prospect of deportation in the near future.

With the approaching US election, the couple is said to be “worried sick” after Donald Trump suggested that if he is re-elected he may consider deporting the pair.

“The Sussexes are worried sick over the prospect of Donald Trump becoming president again – and making good on his vow to kick Prince Harry out of America,” a source told New Idea.

“They’re putting together a contingency plan that would see them flee the country with their children [Archie and Lilibet] if Trump does return to office.”

Amid inquiries into Harry’s visa application, spurred by revelations in his revealing memoir Spare regarding drug use, Trump declared his readiness to take “appropriate action” should it be revealed that Harry misled authorities on his visa application.

As Harry pines for British soil, his departure from the Royal Family in 2020, alongside his wife, commonly referred to as ‘Megxit’, may be weighing heavily on his mind.

The move signaled a major shift in the traditional dynamics of the Monarchy and was driven by the pair’s desire for a more independent and private life, distancing themselves from the intense media scrutiny that had been a constant presence in their lives.

The decision was accompanied by revelations in a 2021 interview with Oprah Winfrey, where the couple candidly discussed their struggles within the royal institution. The interview shed light on the challenges they faced and strained relationships within the family, sparking widespread public discussion.

Since stepping back, Prince Harry’s ties with the Royal Family have remained strained. While the odd public appearance alongside members of The Firm has hinted at attempts at reconciliation, the distance remains palpable.
