I slipped this letter from an unprepossessing brown envelope yesterday around lunchtime. It informs me that my application for British citizenship has been successful! After a citizenship ceremony on the 5th of July, I will officially have British citizenship. I will be retaining my US citizenship, and have the same dual citizenship status as Lefty, Righty, Mr J, and Coo.
What a great relief to have the Life in the UK test and stacks of forms out of the way. The only thing remaining is a rather depleted bank balance after such an expensive process!
