Kate And William's First Daughter Could Be Queen!

| Filed under: Royals RoyceLove LineKate Middleton

Kate William Could Have Future Queen

It's less about the idea that one of their kids will become King or Queen, that's pretty much a given, and more about the idea that if Kate and William have a daughter before a boy, that things might change where the boy wouldn't automatically take the throne even if he has an older sister!

As it stands right now, even if the first born is a girl, if they have a boy second, he will be the one taking the throne. The boys take precedence in British monarchy.

Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg is contemplating removing "male primogeniture," which is why boys get the role over girls, because:

"My own personal view is that in this day and age the idea that only a man should ascend to the throne I think would strike most people as a little old fashioned.

"If Prince William and Catherine Middleton were to have a baby daughter as their first child, I think most people would think it is perfectly fair and normal that she would eventually become Queen of our country … I think it is worth thinking about."

Yeah! We're all for that!

We mean, it's only fair, right?? And he's right that in this day and age people are much more aware of the fact that ladies can do just as much as dudes!

Even though this has been brought up, the Prime Minister reminds us that there are more pressing political issues at hand that should be dealt with first.

We agree with that too, but, if this could be quickly done then you might as well do it!

How do U feel about the idea of that change??

Be sure to watch Perez as he hosts "Will + Kate Forever," the only royal wedding special worth seeing, airing Friday, April 29th at 7pm/6c on Wedding Central and also at 9pm/8c on WE tv.

    Why doesn't Nick Clegg focus on our countries urgent needs rather than discuss the future of our countries monarchy when they don't even matter anymore? Have we forgotten that the Royal Family do not have a say in our countries laws anymore? Who gives a shit about the Royal Family when Britain is on the verge of crumbling into pieces because of our new government?

    no one cares



  3. 3

    Umm… Who cares? The Royal Family don't have much power anyway. Whether it's Kate & William's daughter ruling the country, or a hotdog, either way it wouldn't matter.



  4. 4

    I think whomever is more suited to the task should be given it…not because they
    are born first.

    I think the greatest monarch the British had was a queen. Queen Elizabeth I. After that, I think it may be a tie between Henry VIII, Victoria and Elizabeth II. They all stood out and accomplished great things, even if Henry's was tainted. Elizabeth I was incredible. As an American, I went to England once years ago and ran my hand along her sarcophagus in Westminster, and what a thrill. I almost got kicked out for it. But had to do it. I think it is all very interesting. Anyone who poo-pooes this really doesn't understand the rich history and cultural value of it. Even if the royal family doesn't have a whole lot of political pull, they do have some. And more important, it is the continuity and comfort of tradition and pomp and circumstance that is the pride of a country. And it is an extremely important event. Anyone who can't get enough marbles and common sense together to appreciate that is just plain an asshole.

    Monarchy is obsolete, it should be abolished as soon as possible everywhere it exists.

    This is what actually happens in Spain. Prince Felipe and Princess Letizia have two daughters, Leonor and Sofia. Right now Felipe will take the throne instead of his older sisters, Elena and Cristina, just because it is written like that on the Constitutional Law. People here in Spain think that it's normal that Leonor one day become Queen, but we need to change the laws. Politicians, although, are trying not to change anything, they would do it just in case a boy would born in the family.

    Re: sayhellotogoodbye – I was just about to comment saying the same thing! Who cares about thr royals when our country is returning to the Thatcher way of things?



  10. 10

    Actually, I don't care one bit about this marriage, but why didn't they change this when Diana was Princess before her first child? They do this all the time, but you know?
    .
    It just doesn't matter. The Brits don't know whether to love their royals or hate them. I'm an American… we don't do that King/Queen shit.
    .
    And since the radical Muslims say that they are going to make England the first European Muslim country (I guess Turkey doesn't count), will it matter anyway when the government crumbles?

    Would you look at this man. I doubt Kate would have ever gone on a 1st date with William if he had been something like a mid level manager in some company. He looks like a horse.



  12. 12

    wasn't aware that was the current policy, but yeah, I'd have to agree in this day and age…firstborn, whether male or female should be the once to acsend the throne.



  13. 13

    Who cares about those two? How about having a real job instead of being on royal welfare, huh?



  14. 14

    Who gives a shit who becomes king or queen.



  15. 15

    As an American its really none of our business. That being said, leave it as is. And, focusing on really important issues should be the priority.

    Shhhh! Didn't you know that Perez has crowned himself "Queen of all Media?" What would he do if monarchies were abolished everywhere?



  17. 17

    the problem is, it would not be done quickly! all of the countries in the commonwealth would have to agree and be consulted before anything could change! as it will affect them also.



  18. 18

    ….gosh, i hope kate doesnt slip down the bathtub drain before the big day…

    Re: Genghis Khan – It is definitely true that back when royals actually did something a female ruler had to be ten times as good as a man to get half the praise.



  20. 20

    Here's a better idea: abolish the stupid monarchy altogether and stop wasting tax dollars on a family that does exactly nothing. it's great for Americans who just get to fawn over them, but Canaduians, and Brits, and Australians (and a bunch of others) are paying for this dog and pony show

    Considering the superb job Elizabeth II has done, I think it a positive move.

    Sweden did it which is why King Carl Gustav's daughter Victoria is Crown Princess instead of her younger brother. It's the 21st Century for pete's sake and it's high time the British Monarchy gets rid of such an ancient sexist 'law' as male primogeniture.
