David Furnish has become a British citizen, and is praising the UK’s “spirit of acceptance, tolerance and diversity.”

The filmmaker, who is married to Elton, is Canadian but has been living in England for 27 years. He has now become a dual passport holder for both countries.

The 54-year-old posted a photo to his Instagram page depicting himself and the couple’s young sons holding hands as they face a portrait of the Queen and a Union Flag.
