  4. Interesting. I didn't think American citizens could hold titles of nobility unless they were honorary.

    1. I think that's really just knighthood where you can't call yourself Sir unless you're British

    2. If Jamie Lee Curtis is now a British citizen, the title of Baroness is for real. If she has retained her US citizenship, it is purely honorary.
      I think Ronald Reagan was given an honorary title by the British government ????
