Speaking at the Conservative Political Action Conference outside of Washington, DC, Republican candidate and former president Donald Trump criticised Prince Harry, saying he will be "on his own" if he wins a second term this year, The Telegraph reported.

He claimed that since the Duke of Sussex immigrated to the United States in 2020, Joe Biden's government has been "too gracious" to him.

He further slammed Harry for his "unforgivable" betrayal of Queen Elizabeth II. He said, "I wouldn't protect him. He was the queen's traitor. That is not excused. If it came down to me, he would be on his own."

He continued saying, "I think they have been too gracious to him after what he has done," referencing President Biden's attitude towards the Sussexes, Meghan and Harry.

The conservative think tank Heritage Foundation has filed a lawsuit challenging Prince Harry's immigration status, claiming he was not to be allowed to enter the country because he admitted taking illegal drugs in his biography, "Spare". 

In the past, using illegal drugs has prevented certain foreign nationals, including Nigella Lawson, from visiting the US. 

The think tank said in court on Friday that the US government needs to make Prince Harry's immigration form available, indicating whether or not he told the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that he had used the drugs.
