The Duke of Sussex claimed a victory on Tuesday after the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) refused to divulge private details from his US visa application.

The refusal occurred after the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think group, requested the 38-year-old’s immigration documents after his earlier accusations of drug usage were revealed in his tell-all memoir.

In the January release Spare, Harry confessed that he had previously dabbled with numerous drugs, including psychedelic mushrooms and cocaine, to cope with trauma when he was younger.

Homeland Security denied the demands via email, claiming that they would “override the subject’s privacy interests.”

Foreigners who admit to using drugs and desire to enter or relocate to the United States may face several obstacles under US law.

The letter, obtained by the New York Post, stated that “to the extent, records exist, this office does not find a public interest in disclosure sufficient to override the subject’s privacy interests.”

Nile Gardiner of the Heritage Foundation stated that the company’s refusal to share the material was “unacceptable” and that the company would appeal the decision.

“The Department of Homeland Security’s efforts to stonewall the Heritage Foundation’s Freedom of Information request are unacceptable, and we will be contesting their position,” he stated.

“We expected to have to fight every step of this case in federal court,” Gardiner added, “and we will continue to press for transparency and accountability for the American people.”

Mike Howell, director of the Heritage Foundation’s Oversight Project, requested information from DHS under the Freedom of Information Act to verify that American laws are “applied fairly.”

The Heritage Foundation also asked if Harry had acknowledged using drugs in the three years preceding the release of Spare.

The verdict is a significant victory for Harry since there had been widespread concern over the legality of his US visa and whether he should be permitted to remain in the nation.

Prince Harry retired from royal duties in January 2020 and relocated to the United States a few weeks later.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex live in California with their two children, Archie, four, and Lilibet, two.
