COMMONWEALTH AGREES TO CHANGES TO BRITISH ROYAL SUCCESSION LAWS

In a historic move, all the Commonwealth realms have given their approval to changes to the royal succession that has been in place for centuries.  This change had been agreed to in principle in October 2011.  It is expected that the Succession to the Crown Bill will be formally published in the coming year.  Deputy British Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, has declared the consent as “a historic moment for our country and our Monarchy.”  All of this means that male primogeniture will be abolished and that the first born child of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge will succeed to the throne, whether the child is a boy or a girl.  Photos by Bauer Griffin and Getty Images.
