So long as the keeps her US citizenship, Miss Markle will be represented, most likely by the elected officials in her state of residence. Therefore, we're taxing her.
What I don't get is can the UK have a monarch, or a consort, who is a citizen of another country. How many different national anthems can a person sit through? Can she salute with both hands simultaneously?
