I think it's about time!!!! As a Canadian, a citizen of a country still in the commonwealth, I'm going to send Her Majesty a Thank You note for making this important change. The next thing i'm going to do is write to Her Majesty, Queen Margrethe of Denmark, and ask when the same thing is going to happen there. It would also be awesome if William and Kate's first child was a little girl. Of course after Queen Elizabeth II there will be two Kings, but it will be nice to have a future Queen born, in honour of this great new change in the royal line.
PERTH, Australia (UPI) -- Leaders of Commonwealth countries decided Friday to change royal succession laws, giving daughters of future British monarchs an equal right to the throne.
Previously, a first-born son of a monarch is the natural heir to the throne, unless there are no sons born, in which case the crown is passed to the oldest daughter, the BBC reported.
