- Prince Harry admits he would ‘roll a joint’ while staying at Tyler Perry’s house
- He described how he waited until everyone was asleep and went to the garden
- The Duke of Sussex was 36 at the time and lived in Los Angeles, California
In his controversial autobiography ‘Spare’, Prince Harry reveals that at the age of 36 he would ‘roll a joint’ and smoke it alone at night.
The 38-year-old Duke of Sussex wrote that he smoked marijuana while he and his family were staying at American actor Tyler Perry’s Los Angeles home in 2020 after leaving Canada.
He wrote: Late at night, while everyone was asleep, I walked around the house, checking the doors and windows. Then I would sit on the balcony or at the edge of the garden and roll a joint.
‘The house overlooked a valley, over a hill full of frogs. I listened to their nightly song, smell the fragrant air.’
Cannabis was made legal in California for recreational use in 2016.

Tyler Perry revealed in the latest episode of Prince Harry and Meghan’s Netflix docuseries that the couple “had no plan… they just wanted to be free”
Perry, an American actor and filmmaker, 53, helped the Duke and Duchess of Sussex move to the US and offered them his $18 million Beverly Hills home to use as their personal residence.
He says in their Netflix docuseries, “They just wanted to be free. They wanted to be free to love and be happy. They had no… They had no plan. Everyone says, “Oh, there’s this…” There was no plan.’
In his memoir, Harry also reflects on sharing a ‘spliff’ with friends in his Eton days in ‘a small bathroom upstairs, in which we would implement a surprisingly thoughtful, orderly assembly line’.
He writes in the book, “I knew this was bad behavior. I knew it was wrong. My mates knew it too. We often talked about, while stoned, how stupid we were to waste an Eton education.”
Elsewhere in the book, the 38-year-old also confessed to taking cocaine, ketamine and magic mushrooms, and described hallucinating that a garbage can was talking to him.
Harry credited using psychedelic drugs to help him cope with the “sadness” and “trauma” he felt following the death of his mother, Princess Diana.
He said using psychedelics as he got older “cleared away the idea” that he had to be sad to prove he “missed” his mother.

The Duke of Sussex also describes being dragged into the office of an unnamed member of the royal family during his grandmother’s Golden Jubilee in 2002 after a journalist asked the palace about his drug use.
He revealed that he had been offered a line of cocaine during a hunting weekend.
Harry admits to lying to Royal Household staff during his interrogation, saying that using cocaine was ‘no fun’ and that he did it partly to be different and because he was a ‘seventeen-year-old who was willing to to try anything that would do’. disrupt the established order’.
He wrote, “It wasn’t fun, and it didn’t make me feel as happy as the others, but it did make me feel different, and that was my main goal. To feel. Differ.’
