The Prime Minister of Britain David Cameron has stated that since the heads of government of the 16 Commonwealth realms agreed to change the rules of succession by replacing male preference primogeniture with absolute primogeniture, in which the first born child of a monarch is heir apparent regardless of gender, it is now LAW. The change would only apply for descendants of the current Prince of Wales.All the best,

If you are referred to the October meeting it was decided that the British monarchy would have equal primogeniture and royals would be allowed to marry Catholics. So far these changes haven't been signed into law or discussed properly by any country in the commonwealth. It have to be legislated in all of the realms. Also they did say it could take about 4 years to get it all worked out.

Majesty is a brilliant example of how women can be just as good leaders as men, maybe better even.Zelia/Elja • Nineteen • Name and history nerd from an early age • I have a blog.

I am so excited for the Duke and Duchess!! I have been a royals lover since I was little
For a girl, I think the following names are likely to be found somewhere in the mix....
Elizabeth- Honors Queen, Kate's mother and herself
Caroline/Charlotte- Honors Prince Charles, Carole and Pippa Middleton
Frances- Honors Diana and Michael Middleton
For a boy....
Charles- Same as Caroline/Charlotte
Philip- A nod to Pippa, Prince Philip, and William
George- King George, the Queen's father and an underused classic royal name
William- No brainerCecilia + Daphne + Ronan + Henry
