Prince Harry calling America his home hasn’t gone down well with Britons and royal experts.

In an interview with TODAY, the Duke of Sussex, who is caught up in a security row with the UK's Home Office, also cast doubts about his presence at Queen Elizabeth's Platinum Jubilee celebrations in London in June. In the interview, he also refused to say whether he misses his elder brother Prince William and father Prince Charles amid their ongoing feud. Still, Harry insisted that he talks with the Queen "about things she can't talk about with anybody else," and claimed that he was "making sure" she is "protected" and has "the right people around her."

Royal fans took to social media to hit out at the duke following the interview, reported Daily Mail. One pointed out that Harry says he "now feels America is his home. That's good, stay there. Not wanted here!" Another wrote that "Prince Harry said he has found peace in California," so let him stay there.

Royal author Tom Bower said that Harry's full demands have been "rebuffed and he is hitting out at those standing in the way of promoting the Sussex's self-promotion." The author noted that to enhance his credibility in the US and for Netflix, Harry needs to "pretend that he has a special relationship with the Queen."

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams said that Harry's refusal to comment on missing his father and brother "shows the royal rift is still deep."

Another expert, Robert Jobson, author of the forthcoming book "William At 40: The Making of a Modern Monarch," said that he felt Harry did not want to talk about his father and brother to help rebuild trust between the family. The expert said that this is a "family and any family in the world there's always some issues, but to be any form of rapprochement or rebuilding of relationships there needs to be first steps."

According to him, for that to happen there needs to be an element of trust, but if he goes on TV starting to "blurt out things for personal gain it's going to eliminate that trust." The expert noted that one should read into the fact that Harry didn't talk about his brother and father, which was probably a "wise move because there needs to be more trust built there."
