George Sassoon confirms what John Heelan said: I think the reason that the owner of Harrods is refused British citizenship is because his son went off with Princess Diana and also he is not a very nice man generally! They will find any excuse to refuse it. Regarding US citizenship, I was in the Yugoslav port of Rijeka in 1958 and had to go to an office te renew my visa. There were lots of obviously local people doing the same, and I was told that they were children of prostitutes who had looked after the men of the 6th fleet when it was in, and craftily secured US citizenship for them. I wonder if this is true.
RH: Does the foreign-born son of an American man automatically have US citizenship?
