According to Richard Palmer Meghan will not renounce her US citizenship. She will go for dual citizenship.

And that's fine, imo. Lots of people have dual citizenship.

Probably a precaution in case she goes back to the US in the future. But no doubt it will be controversial in the UK as it might signal a lack of commitment to her new country.


Besides, she will have to file tax returns in the US, which might expose the Royal Family's private finances, although I think the risk of that is slim considering that her personal income must be separated from Harry's.

Yup. I always assumed she would be a dual-citizen. No reason not to be.

Archie will be as well.

All Americans have the option to file their taxes separately from their spouses - "Married filing separately".

You are quite right in identifying it as an issue from a British perspective. If she is unwilling to commit to British citizenship exclusively, many will question her commitment to being a Princess in the UK.

I always assumed that Meghan would have dual citizenship. On its own I don't think the dual citizenship is or should be a problem. I think the problem arises when it is part of a series of very small, symbolic gestures/actions that have a cumulative effect on public perception.

With the treatment that Meghan is receiving from the British media, BRF & some of the public I would recommend that she go for dual citizenship, especially since she still has her mother back in the states and the US government is a hot mess right now when it comes to immigration/visas.

Doesn't matter what some say they don't have her or her family's (Archie/Harry) best interest at heart. They are going to question anything she does anyway so she doesn't need to make ultimate sacrifices for them. If her hard work and dedication to her charities, patronages and other assignments aren't enough too bad.

I would do dual citizenship nothing wrong with that. She isn’t going to be Queen. She doesn’t have to give up everything.

Good. I was hoping she wouldn't. There is no need. I also hope Archie has it.

Archie will have it anyway until he is old enough to be able to renounce it.

I guess it all comes down to where and how Meghan sees her future evolve.

Whatever is chosen it will be seen as 'a signal', and [possibly] be intended as such....

Richard Palmer is guessing like the rest of us.

If the BRF was so concerned about that, they should’ve give her the citizenship at the time of her marriage.

By the way, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands has dual citizenship. Meghan is not even going to be Queen.

There are other members of the BRF who are foreign born, and I’ve not heard of them renouncing their “birth right” citizenships.

The UK is not an Absolute Monarchy.. there are procedures to be followed, and the Duchess has to abide by the rules, like everyone else..

Other European houses are also not absolute Monarchies, yet they grant citizenships to their foreign born royal brides at the time of their marriage.

And yes, she has to abide by the rules like everyone else. And like everyone else, she has the rights just like the other foreign born brides of the BRF.

First, the BRF could not simply give her the citizenship summarily as they lack the power to do so. Those matters are regulated by law in the UK.

Second, Maxima explained she has dual citizenship because Argentina does not allow one to renounce his/her citizenship. It is simply not possible.

CP Mary on the other hand gave up her Australian citizenship.

Keeping her US citizenship seems like a good way to go. Her US income is probably heavily investment income, and the taxes on some is low compared to the rate on wage-earning income.

That is pretty much a given with all the stuff Meghan is put through because of the British media.
