Good News: Kate Middleton Pregnant...!!
On 3 December 2012 the Royal Family announced that Kate Middleton and her husband, Prince William, Duke of Cambridge were expecting their first baby. Ever since their wedding on 29 April 2011, speculation had been rife about when the young couple would start a family. The royal baby is likely to be due in July 2013. Long to reign over us: Kate and William's baby could be on the throne in the 22nd century.
Kate Middleton Pregnant: Royal Baby will one day rule Britain as King or Queen., Thanks to the proposed shake up of monarchy rules, the sex of the child will not determine whether it wears the crown.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's baby will one day inherit the throne - whether a boy or a girl. Historic amendments to 300-year-old laws which give male heirs priority will be backdated, ministers announced over the summer.
That means that a daughter born to the happy couple would not be outranked by a younger brother under the outdated succession laws which were set out in the 1701 Act of Settlement. There had been fears of a constitutional crisis if William and Kate had a child before the reforms were passed by all 16 countries where the Queen is head of State.
The current law of male primogeniture only allows Elizabeth II to be Wueen because she did not have any brothers. It also means that the Princess Royal, the Queen’s second born, is just tenth in line to the throne behind her younger brothers Andrew (fourth) and Edward (seventh).
Courtiers had feared that trying to reform the law would open an Pandora’s Box, with republicans in Australia threatening to use the exercise to oust the Queen. But Her Majesty backed the changes at a Commonwealth gathering in Australia last year when she urged political leaders to “find ways to allow all girls and women” to play their part in national life.
David Cameron also told other Commonwealth leaders that in an age of “gender equality” the 1701 laws was out of date and discriminatory.
Congratulation Princess Kate...!!
