The Queen has stamped her royal approval! Kate and Will’s first born will get the crown, even if it’s a girl!

The future first-born child of Kate Middleton and Prince William will take the throne even it’s a girl under changes announced by Queen Elizabeth on May 9. Take that, 300-year-old succession law!

The Queen confirmed in her speech at the State Opening of Parliament that she plans to introduce a bill that will scrap the discriminatory law that prefers male heirs to the throne, said a report from the Daily Mail.

This law has been in place since 1688 and states that the oldest son becomes the next in line to the crown even if he has an older sister. That means if Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge have a first-born daughter, she will one day be queen!

Plans to modernize this law has been in place since October 2011 when the leaders of the 16 Commonwealth countries unanimously agreed to push towards an amendment to the extremely dated law.

Isn’t it exciting for Kate and Will, HollyMoms? Now they just need a kid!
