David’s Furnished with Brit passport
FILM-MAKER David Furnish has become a British citizen, praising the UK’s “spirit of acceptance, tolerance and diversity”.
Furnish, who is married to Sir Elton John, is Canadian but has been living in the UK for 27 years and is now a dual passport holder.
The 54-year-old posted a photo to his Instagram page showing himself and the couple’s young sons Zachary and Elijah holding hands as they face a portrait of the Queen and a Union Flag.
He captioned the photo: “A very emotional morning for me. This morning, I was sworn in as a British citizen.
“As an immigrant, I was welcomed with open arms. This spirit of acceptance, tolerance and diversity has let me achieve a life beyond my wildest dreams.
“I am a very blessed man and extremely proud.”
