Um, so why is this a good thing? Were you British at one point or are you parents British but you weren't?miloblithe said:I just went over to the British embassy here in Washington and affirmed my allegiance to the Queen this morning, and now I'm a British citizen. I got me a certificate and everything.
No no. My mother was born in England and has British citizenship, although she hasn't lived there since about 1948. Because she's British, I automatically recieve British citizenship if I bother to apply for it (and pay through the nose for it--in total $370 or so). I'm a dual citizen now. I didn't renounce my US citizenship or anything.PlaceofDis said:is that all you have to do?!?
Congrats... I don't recall ever affirming my allegiance to the Queen unless I did it while signing my passport applications.miloblithe said:I just went over to the British embassy here in Washington and affirmed my allegiance to the Queen this morning, and now I'm a British citizen.
