  Meghan Markle will be taking a Life In the UK British citizenship test following her marriage to Prince Harry. Harry and American former actress Meghan revealed their engagement on 27 November last year and it was confirmed by Harry's communications secretary that she would be applying for citizenship.

  梅根·马克尔将在婚礼后参加入英国国籍测试。去年11月27日,两人公布订婚,哈里的通讯秘书表示梅根会入英国国籍。

  'I can also say she intends to become a UK citizen and will go through the process of that, which some of you may know takes a number of years,' he said at the time. In order to become a British citizen, applicants must have lived in the United Kingdom for three years, have a sound mind, have good knowledge of the English language and be able to pass the Life In The UK test, which costs £50.

  “她会成为英国公民,走相应的流程,这些流程可能要好几年的时间。”申请加入英国国籍必须在英国生活满3年时间,入籍意向坚定,英语水平过关,能通过英国的入籍考试,考试报名费为50英镑。

  The test quizzes potential UK citizens on the British history and way of life and is notoriously difficult: since the questions changed in 2014, the pass rate of 18 out of the 24 eccentric questions has dropped from 85% to 61%. The questions are based on the Life In The United Kingdom: A Guide For New Residents handbook, covering 3,000 facts about life in the UK – from how big the Lake District is to what year England won the World Cup.

  这个考试旨在测试申请者对英国历史/生活方式的了解,出了名的难答。2014年题库进行更新,24道刁钻题目的答对率本来是18题,更新后通过率从85%下降到61%。问题都来自于工具书《生活在英国:新手指南》,涵盖了3000个英国生活知识点,从大湖区面积到英国获得世界杯的时间都有。

  Meghan has lived in the UK since November last year when she moved into Kensington Palace’s Nottingham Cottage with Harry. It’s likely Meghan hasn’t had too much time to brush up on her reading though, what with all of that wedding planning she’s been doing. See how you would fare with our sample test below – you’ll need to score nine out of 12 to hit the standard pass rate:
