Queen Confirms: Prince William & Kate Middleton's First-Born Daughter Can Take Crown

Kate Middleton Daughter

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!

the monarchy might be old and outdated, and redundant as someone has said… but, this still makes me happy- even if it’s all symbolic. kind of like obama’s announcement of support for gay marriage which many see as a day late and a dollar short (especially when coupled with the fact that he thinks it’s a state issue, not a federal one). having a leader make a proclamation (gay relationships are equal, female leaders are equal) means something.

Uh, the Queen can’t introduce anything legislative because she doesn’t have any power in that regard. So that’s wrong.

Erm..what actually happens is that HM Queen Elizabeth II can put a law/legislate forward, and the members of parliment & the house of lords HAVE to debate it, and either veto it or enforce it, so technically she does still have some power…!

We are ALL Sacred Sovereign Spiritual beings. Its time for ALL of us to stand on our own 2 feet. The Monarchy is redundant and humanity has to take responsibility for what we create together. May truth, integrity and peace prevail!

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

*throne, not thrown.

hee hee… i’m sure you can find many more mistakes than that on here. it’s about speed, not grammar. but, this is a funny one- and i’ll admit i didn’t even notice it on first quick read! maybe if i were used to seeing the word (or a brit), i’d have caught it more quickly…
