"Even if France stops accepting UK citizens as automatic residents, people who are already established residents have no need to panic."

An established resident needs to speak the language and pass a culture test, the same as non-EU immigrants here in the UK do if they want to become permanent residents and eventually citizens.

There are 3-5 million retired brits living in France and Spain who can't pass either test.
