David Furnish shares emotional moment he becomes British citizen with husband Elton

February 2, 2017

Elton John’s other half, David Furnish, has shared the emotional moment he officially became a British citizen.

David Furnish has lived in the UK for almost three decades, but only now made his citizenship official.

He married Elton John in 2014, after same-sex marriages became legal in England and Wales.

Following the ceremony, Furnish is a citizen of both Canada and the UK.

He posted a snap to Instagram of the moment, holding hands with his two young sons.

He wrote: “A very emotional morning for me.

“This morning, I was sworn in as a British citizen.

“As an immigrant, I moved to the UK more than 27 years years ago.

“I was welcomed with open arms.

“This spirit of acceptance, tolerance and diversity has allowed me to achieve a life beyond my wildest dreams.

“I am a very blessed man, and I am extremely proud to now carry both British and Canadian passports. ???? @eltonjohn #ShareTheLove”
