Prince Harry's fellow Brits aren't happy after he said the US is now his home - and hinted he won't be returning to the UK for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

In his latest TV interview with NBC, he cast doubt on speculation he'd be at the celebrations in June amid his ongoing security row with the UK Home Office, reports the Daily Mail.

But in a new revelation, he added, "Home for me now is, you know, for the time being, it's in the States. And it feels that way as well."

However, his lawyers told the High Court in February that the UK "is and always will be his home".

Harry revealed he and Meghan Markle had been "welcomed with open arms" and have "such a great community" in Santa Barbara, California.

He refused to say whether he misses Charles and William amid their feud, but insisted that he is so close with the Queen that they talk about "things she can't talk about with anybody else".

He opened up about their "really special relationship" after their surprise meeting at Windsor Castle last week.

Harry also spoke about his late mother Princess Diana, telling NBC's Today that he feels her "presence in almost everything I do now", and he talks to his son Archie about her and shows him photos of her.

But the interview raised more than a few eyebrows back home in the UK, with countless royal fans taking to social media.

"Prince Harry says he now feels America is his home. That's good, stay there. Not wanted here!" one wrote.

Another commented, "What the hell does he mean...protected? ....You have become American Harry ... so just stay there."

A third added, "Prince Harry said he has found peace in California. Let him stay there. The British Royals have had much more peace since his wife left their domiciles. And, they aren't too happy with Harry either."
