I guess the French must be thrilled as they love the Brits.(;;)
Lately Boris Johnson father and sister also applied for a French passport.

With no knowledge on this at all what caused this? Does that mean they will move?

These Britons already live and work in France.
But since leaving the EU, they now have to apply for a residency card?

I'd love to live in France! I have some friends that live there, one in Paris and a few in SOF.
That's a fantasy really.
I hope I get to visit before I leave this mortal coil!

I think that there is an element of this for some, plus those that own a property in France and wish to spend more than 90 days in 180 there on occasion. I certainly know a few people whom have done this in order to avoid limiting their trips.

Yes I'm one of those who applied for residency in France as it's where I live and Brexit was the final straw for me so I'm not interested in returning to the UK to live
And yes I did leave it until the last minute .......why do today what you can put off until tomorrow!!!
So I don't have my residency card yet but I'm sure it will appear in my letterbox eventually and as I've lived in this village for years no one here is going to ask to see it. It remains to be seen what happens when I travel to the UK and back......long queues for one thing I'm sure

I expect if the tables were reversed we would definitely love the French. I spent 17 years travelling through France to my holiday home in Spanish Catalunya ... Loved the French people , so helpful . loved the culture. Our stopover's were always wonderful , usually Clermont Ferrand or Millau ,we watched the bridge being built x Millau McDonald's breakfasts had an amazing view x Desperately hoping that all connections with France and all our European neighbours survive Brexit .. So sad xx

I would have thought that there would be a similar requirement in most of the EU countries where there are Brits working and living.

Approx 300,000 Brits live in Spain I believe, so will have obtained residency to remain.

I now own a company that is based in the EU, due to Brexit CF and not knowing what was going to happen, this would give me residency if I want it I believe.
