The Royal Wedding is right around the corner. History will really be made if Prince Harry and Meghan produce a son. It will be the first time in history a African American will be in line to be King of England.

Nevermind, that there is a technical error on jodeke's part....their son would not be American at all. They would be British. And 6th in line with no chance of being awarded the ceremonial title of being King.
As it stands right now the line of succession is...
Prince Charles
Prince William
Prince George (Child #1 from William and Kate)
Princess Charlotte (Child #2 from William and Kate)
Prince Louis (Child #3 from William and Kate)

I know. Bold green was my point. Harry's so far down the line he also won't come close.

I can't believe I've been sucked into a Royal Wedding topic lol, but wouldn't the kid be American by blood since his mom is American? (They could always renounce his citizenship, but at birth he should be apart of the good ole USA right?)

If we were using that reasoning, Prince Albert of Monaco would be American too....but he's not. He's the son of Grace Kelly (former American actress) and Prince Rainer.

His mother is AA so he would be AA, 1 drop rule

Except their son would most likely be born in the UK....have no American birthright citizenship...he would be British with 1/4 African roots.

Actually looks like the kid very well could be

Citizenship by Being Born to U.S. Citizens

In a number of situations, if you were born to parents, at least one of whom was a U.S. citizen at the time of your birth, you automatically gained U.S. citizenship through the process of acquisition. It does not matter whether you were born on American soil or foreign. As well, if you have children, those children will also acquire U.S. citizenship through you at their birth. Additionally, foreign-born adoptees to U.S. citizens also may claim U.S. citizenship.

The laws regarding citizenship obtained through acquisition are some of the most complex of all of U.S. citizenship laws and take into account things like the citizenship of parents, as well as if the child was born in or outside of wedlock. This complexity has not lessened at all because Congress has made major changes to these laws throughout history. In order to determine which laws will apply to you or your child, you must first see which date range applies:

Born prior to May 24, 1934
Born between May 25, 1934 and January 12, 1941
Born between January 13, 1941 and December 23, 1952
Born between December 24, 1952 and November 13, 1986, and
Born after November 14, 1986.


https://immigration.findlaw.com/citizenship/u-s-citizenship-through-parents-or-by-birth.html

It would take a bit of research, far more effort than I care to exert lol, but it's possible to be a US Citizen just by having one of your parents already be a US Citizen

Yes, he/she would be able to claim American citizenship if he/she was so inclined. He/she could even run for President, just like Ted Cruz.

Meghan Markle has already begun the process of becoming a British citizen. She will not be an American citizen eventually, unless I missed something. So I would assume that her children with Prince Harry will be British citizens, no?

Iíve been struck by the people I know on Facebook who have devoted a lot of time to telling everyone that they donít care about the royal wedding.

Yes they will be British citizens. My position is history making.

If they have a son, British, American, what ever. In the words of the great Bill Walton, It will be the first time in the history of Western civilization that a AA will be in line to be King of England.

Not will he ever ascend to the throne because the chances of him doing that would be about the same as Bo Jackson making a comeback.

Not if he's a British citizen or American citizen, that's not in my equation. My position is a history making event. Seems as though my post intention was derailed.

Meghan Markle is dual citizen, US and Britain
Their children will also be dual citizen, will be AA and will be in line for the british throne (distance number but still)
Historic indeed

At least Kanye and Kim didn't stick taxpayers for a $40 million dollar bill for security for their wedding.

Quote:
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding will come with a staggering bill: about $42.8 million.

But the majority of that money isn't paying for ornate flowers, classy hors d'úuvres or entertainment: It's going towards keeping the betrothed, their guests and the thousands of onlookers safe.

According to U.K. wedding site Bridebook, the cost of security, including snipers, undercover police and a counter-UAV system, will be about $40.1 million, or 94 percent of the total wedding budget.

...

As for who's picking up the tab, the royal family announced that it will pay for the "core aspects of the wedding," which include the "church service, the associated music, flowers, decorations and the reception afterwards."

The whopping security costs, however, are expected to be paid for largely by taxpayers.
