They will have no choice, the child will be born to an American citizen, there fore will be classed as an American and liable to American taxes unless it renounces its citizenship when it is 16. Any gift to the child will be taxed in America. There was an article in the paper recently. All Americans even if they have never lived in the country are liable to USA Taxes. People are trying to change the law but at the moment it still stands.

Megan's baby was just born... a baby boy. If I was Megan, I wouldn't make him a dual citizen. Way, way, way too expensive.

If Megan is still a US citizen, the baby is one also. There is no "applying" or choice. I'm sure she renounced her citizenship right away. Paying US taxes is not the worst of it-the Foreign Bank Account Report is very invasive. I'm sure the Crown doesn't want the IRS looking at its finances. Also, any trust set up for the baby (or Megan) would have to be reported to the IRS annually. It's much better for her to pay the renunciation tax and be done with the IRS.
