It’s been all over the news that British Prime Minister David Cameron will change the law over the laws of succession. At the moment, the 310-year-old rule states that a male heir must take the throne, unless the royal couple have no sons of their own. The new law seeks to eliminate the view of women being second-class citizens, and will bring about the chance for Will and Kate’s baby girl to have the same rights as any brother. This new law, meaning that the eldest child will be next in-line for the throne, regardless of gender, was confirmed by the Queen at the State Opening of Parliament in May. “My government will continue to work with the 15 other Commonwealth Realms to take forward reform of the rules governing succession to the crown,” said HRH Queen Elizabeth II. While Kate Middleton isn’t pregnant yet, the royal couple have plans to start a family soon. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the Olympic Games in London have kept the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge occupied, hopefully once things have calmed down a bit in Kensington Palace, the couple will have the privacy they need to get started on a new family and a royal heir – one who’ll succeed to the throne, whether they’ll be a king or queen.
