Just barely days ahead of your becoming a UK citizen! Couldn't you just have swapped, or something?

It might have been more efficient! My sister briefly thought it might be a race, but I already had a ceremony date at that point which was after P's interview, and interviews are usually shortly after - the same day - followed by ceremony, apparently, in the US.

Out of curiosity, does he get to keep his previous passport/nationality, or does he have to give that up?

And do you?

Neither of us needs to give up anything, happily! (He's Italian.)

Is this the principle of "one in, one out"?

Congratulations to all new citizens everywhere.

On an EU level, yes!

Did the two of you arrange a trade with your respective homelands?

It's an EU-US trade. It might have saved us a great deal of paperwork if we could have coordinated it.
