Royal children would complicated matters even further. “Parents cannot elect to have a child lose his or her U.S. citizenship, so the children will be U.S. citizens (and therefore, U.S. taxpayers) unless they decide to give it up when they reach the age of majority,” said Kristin Konschnik, a lawyer with London-based Butler Snow law firm.
