NEW YORK: Talk about being born with a silver spoon in your mouth: the royal baby of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have a particularly glittery one. And US tax authorities will be keen to know how much that utensil is worth. That’s because the baby will have dual nationality: British because of his father and US from his American mother, whose official title is the duchess of Sussex. “When one of the parents is American and has resided in the US for five years with at least two after the age of 14, the baby is automatically a citizen,” said David Treitel, founder of American Tax Returns, a consultancy for US expatriates living in Britain. “This is the case with Meghan,” said Treitel, noting this case is a first in the British royal family. US nationality comes with a bevy of restrictive conditions: like any American who is born, grows up and dies anywhere in the world, year after year Meghan and Harry’s child will have to show the Internal Revenue Service his or her tax status is clean.
