US/UK Dual Citizen

#1
My mother is a British citizen and I can obtain my dual citizanship. The majority of my family lives in the U.K. I have lived in America all my life (22 years). As far as residency goes, will this be a problem if I were to apply to the Royal Army or Navy? Thanks.

Yes, it will; you (a) need to have a British passport and (b) need to have lived here for a period of time before enlistment too. At the moment, you meet neither condition, and so cannot join either the British Army or the Royal Navy (or Royal Air Force for that matter).

You have to be domicile in the UK for five years. There are some exemptions, but these mainly apply to commonwealth countries.
