The great Wogan has dual nationality because he was born before 1949. He was therefore able to accept a 'proper' knighthood when it was offered whereas Bob Geldof, born after 1949, has an honorary one. 1949 was the year when Ireland left the Commonwealth and became a Republic. Wogan was born a British citizen and apparently has the right to retain this.
