My children hold French passports. They were each born and have lived all their lives in London. My wife is French. I am British.

Let me see if I can help and please rate positive.

1. From what you have written you can apply for British passports for your children in the normal way.

2. It is not uncommon for people to have dual passports - French and British. It is unusually unnecessary as both countries are within Europe but with the Brexit debate there may be merit in holding both.

Happy to discuss but please rate positive.
