Early this year beginning March, all Britons were all excited about the anticipated wedding of their most eligible bachelor Prince and next heir to the King of England, Prince William. He is to wed the lucky bride Kate Middleton. Security was on red alert. Tight security was enforced using all military forces including Royal guards and even guard dog security. All security forces were all on their toes for any untoward incidents.

On April 29, 2011 nearly the whole world stopped to witness the Royal wedding of the century in world broadcast live television. The scheduled wedding month gave a very festive mood all over. The British colonies and all the communities occupying British soil were so up and about preparing for the grand celebration of the wedding whether they were invited to participate or just have their own personal or group share of celebration for Prince William and Kate Middletons wedding. It was announced later by Queen Elizabeth that new titles are now bestowed upon Prince William and Kate Middleton as Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. This grand event boosted U.K.s tourism. Almost all airlines bound for U.K. were all booked. People in different parts of the world had their televisions focused on this wedding including social networks that were flooded with wedding wishes, greetings and gracious comments for the newly wed couple. In short, the global community in one moment shared a common awareness that gave pride to the people of Britain.

Witnessing this occasion is just one of the privileges that can be fully enjoyed by a British citizen. And as a result of this great event, a number of people from different parts of the world have been enticed to either become a British citizen or to apply as immigrants or for employment. Becoming a British citizen is more of a recommendation. There are six categories of having British citizenship, namely: First, British Citizenship which is acquired by : birth in U.K. or in a qualifying British territory, descent, legal adoption, dual citizenship; or have registered as a resident living in U.K. for at least five years before 01 January 1983. The other citizenship declarations include: British Overseas Citizenship; British Overseas Territories Citizenship; British National (Overseas); British Protected Person and as British Subject. All these categories are distinctively different from the other in terms of criteria. These are also governed by government policies adopting different certain cut-off dates of implementation. If interested, more of these can be fully explained by U.K. Border Agency. Visit their site at
