One of these citizenships is not like the other...

My friend, a dual Canadian/American citizen living in the UK, is discussing the terms of a trust with her (US) father. By the time she inherits, she may have given up US citizenship. Does this need to be mentioned so they can account for it now?

Added info, from her:
--I'm pretty sure the letter I get every year says that it's an irrevocable trust, so I'm not sure the trust can be rewritten.
--Dr. Internet is being unhelpful to me: it's telling me a lot about what happens if a non-US citizen spouse inherits, but children have different legal standing.
--I would keep Canadian citizenship.
--If me being a non-US citizen would be a huge PITA, then I'd much prefer he just rewrite the trust so it all goes to my sister.
Thanks (on behalf of both of us)!
