PRINCE Harry seems to be enjoying his new home in the US, saying in an interview that he and wife Meghan Markle have been “welcomed with open arms.”
The Duke of Sussex, 37, spoke with news anchor Hoda Kotb, which is scheduled to air Wednesday, speaking about married life and living across the pond.
According to Harry, the US, specifically Santa Barbara, feels more like home to him.
“Home for me now is, for the time being, it’s the States. And it really feels that way as well.
“We’ve been welcomed with open arms and we’ve got such a great community up in Santa Barbara.”
Kotb asked: “So you feel like that’s more home for you?” with Harry replying: “Yeah.”
The couple has been settled in their £11.million mansion on the central California coast, since June 2020. They live there with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.
Harry spoke with Kotb after taking part in the fifth Invictus Games – a sporting event for injured veterans. The Duke spoke about recently visiting his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.
“Being with her, it was great,” he said. “It was just so nice to see her…she’s on great form.”
During the interview, which took place in The Hague in the Netherlands, Harry mentioned he shared some laughs with the queen over tea.
The monarch has largely been out of the public eye after testing positive for Covid-19 in February. More concern for her heath was sparked after her absence from the weekend’s Easter celebrations.
“She’s always got a great sense of humor with me,” said Harry, adding that Meghan had accompanied him on the visit.
“I know you make her laugh. that’s what she always says,” said Kotb. “Did you do it, [make her laugh] again?”
With a chuckle, Harry confirmed that he did. “It was really nice to catch up with her.”
Despite living thousands of miles away from the queen’s residence, Harry said that he is putting in the effort to see his grandmother and ensure that she is secure and supported.
“I’m making sure that she’s, you know, protected and got the right people around her,” he said, reiterating how more at home he feels in the US.
