Cheers for equality!!!
We recently told you of the news that the royal family wanted to change the rules, ensuring the eldest as heir to the throne, regardless of sex.
But now we can happily tell you all that it is official!!
Prime Minister David Cameron announced:
Attitudes have changed fundamentally over the centuries and some outdated rules, like some of the rules on succession, just don't make sense to us anymore.
The idea that the younger son should become monarch, instead of the elder daughter, simply because he's a man, or that a future monarch who marries someone of any faith, except a Catholic - this way of thinking is at odds with the modern countries that we've all become.
Put simply, if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were to have a little girl, that girl would one day become Queen.
Hooray!! What a wonderful day for women!! Equality just sounds better, doesn't it??
