The father of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson will apply for French citizenship once Brexit is done, reported today’s edition of the Sunday Times.

The request for French nationality by Stanley Johnson, 79, was revealed by his daughter Rachel in a book published last week.

Euronews reports that in the book “Rake’s Progress: My Political Midlife Crisis”, Rachel Johnson wrote that her father “is on his way to become a French citizen, his mother being born in Versailles”, adding “this is good news, I could become French too,” the daughter added. Stanley Johnson was one of the first British officials in Brussels, as a member of the European Parliament and later of the Commission.
