The Duke of Sussex has moved to Santa Barbara with his wife, Duchess Meghan, but he insisted he would have already visited his home country if he was able to travel.

Speaking to staff and volunteers from the Rugby Football League, he said: "We've got a whole Rugby League world cup coming next year. I definitely plan on coming back. I would have been back already had it not been for Covid."

And Prince Harry also spoke about his love for rugby.

Speaking from his American home, he added: "Watching Rugby League is exhausting. Listen I spent 10 years in the army, I know what endurance is all about. But it's madness. Full respect to anyone that plays the game, I think it's amazing, and a lot of people would be jealous not to be part of that community. It can bring so many families together, bring so many people together. It doesn't matter whether you're in the stands, whether you're the groundsman, whether you're a player, whether you're a fan, or whether you're a first time watcher, every single person is bound by this family feeling".

It comes after it was claimed Prince Harry "hated" Los Angeles, and is happier since relocating to Santa Barbara.

A source said: "Meghan visited Montecito in her teens and fell in love with the picturesque scenery and stunning architecture. Moving there was always an option, but to begin with, she and Harry wanted to give Los Angeles a shot. Unfortunately, Harry absolutely hated it - the timing was so wrong amid the [coronavirus] pandemic and they lacked privacy."
