Prince Harry, the Duke of Sussex, is reportedly contemplating a significant decision: purchasing a home in the United Kingdom. After stepping back from his senior royal positions in 2020 and relocating to California with his wife, Meghan Markle, and their children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, Harry’s longing for a “permanent base” in the UK has intensified.

The reasons behind this potential move are multifaceted. Royal author and expert Tom Quinn sheds light on Harry’s motivations. Despite embracing his new life across the Atlantic, Harry misses certain aspects of his old life in Britain. His nostalgia extends to his Old Etonian and army friends, some of whom have not visited him in the US due to strained relationships with Meghan. The desire to reconnect with these friends and reestablish connections with his British roots is driving Harry’s determination to find his own UK residence.

Critics argue that as a private citizen, he should bear the costs independently. Yet, Harry’s unique position as a former senior royal complicates matters, and the debate continues.
